Costa Rica is an amazing country.
Fishing, surfing, golf, hiking, relax, spa and the sky is the limit.
A lot of people want to learn how to fish, but they never make real efforts on the subject and are always left wanting to do it. Well, today is a different day and this article is going to provide you with inside knowledge on fishing and how you can become great at it.
Having a sharp hook is one of the most important aspects of fishing. The hook ensures your catch stays on the reel when you pull it in. Check to see that you have sharp hooks before every fishing trip, and replace those that have become dull and worn. Costa Rica has lots of pelagic fish such dorado, marlin, sailfish and offcourse record tuna.
If you plan to fish from a boat, remember to keep safety first. The floor of the boat should be kept dry at all times. It could be dangerous if you should slip or trip, especially with sharp hooks and other equipment around. Dry the surface floor with a mop or towel before venturing out into the water.
Using sinkers is advised while fishing during the winter time. Sinkers will weigh down the line and allow bait to go deeper, hitting the warm waters where fish hide during the winter. Sinker choices will vary depending on how deep the water is.
When you are choosing your fishing rod, be sure the eyelets that hold the line are smooth. They should not have any kind of abrasive feel. Any roughness with the line could cause it to weaken or to snap at that vital point when you have caught that big fish.
You should now feel motivated when thinking about fishing. In fact, you should be motivated enough to not just think you want to do it, but to actually go out and get started. Go ahead and indulge in this relaxing yet, fun activity. If anything, you can catch a meal or two for you and your family or friends to enjoy.
