Subject: Choose The Best Bait For Roosterfish In Los Suenos
(Posted on Apr 24, 2014 at 06:20AM by Lee Byard)

roosterfish fishing los suenos costa ricaLos Suenos plays hosts to countless marine creatures, but few are as unusual as the Roosterfish. This breed is silver-scaled and large, with a spiny-plume rising along its back and cutting through the water. It’s an inshore predator that’s as tasty to eat as it is challenging to catch.

Costa Rica Fishing Adventures recommends choosing the right bait, therefore, while hunting it.

Live Bait

The Roosterfish will feast on most small creatures, showing few preferences toward flavor or blood trails. For the best results, however, choose options like Skipjacks and Lady Fish. These tend to move well on the lines and will attract attention.

Artificial Bait

The Roosterfish doesn’t respond strongly to artificial bait. Those forced to use it, though, should choose surface poppers and feathered circle hooks. These will draw the breed out and keep it interested.


Visit the Los Suenos Marina to find all Roosterfish baiting options.
