From Argentina now in Costa Rica

My Posts: All  Forum  Topic

I have few questions about deep sea fishing and since this great comunity holds a wide choice of expertise I'd like to know if there is anybody that can help me out.
I only went deep sea fishing once here in Costa Rica and it was on the Pacific side.
I wonder if there is to it as much diversity as with fly fishing, I mean... to fish on the Atlantic would the same type of lures work or they are specific for species either on the Pacific or the Atlantic?
Any suggestion on what to get lures and hooks wise?
Thanks,
Fernando

Well, the short answer would be anything
My brother just bought a 45' motor/sailboat in Ibiza and we plan to sail it across the Atlantic to Argentina so any fresh fish we can pull aboard will be very welcome
So I would say trolling and no live bait unless we can catch the bait first
I guess it can't any deeper sea fishing than that...

can we derail this thread or you start a new one and tell us about expatriates in costa-rica? I am considering it in the next 10 years if tax-and-spend continues in the U.S.

So far I have heard nothing but good things.

jcrack_corn,
I don't know what do you want to know but I can give you my version of living here.
I moved here 16 years ago (originally from Argentina) and since then I travel quite a bit, my other half is from London and I work in adventure tourism here aswell as teaching emergency medicine for an American Based company so I like to think that I have an open and broad mind enough to expose an unbiased opinion on this, so ask away if you prefer on PM or email ferincr@racsa.co.cr.
I just going to tell you it will be a change/challenge to adapt to this, I don't know where in the US are you from or anything about your background but I read these forums daily and if you are one of the ones you see here (let's call them respectfully) spoiled Americans you'll have a hard time reving down to the local standards (I still have and it has been 16 years:rolleyes

Best advise, I fish in the ocean 4 to 5 times a week...

Go to a dock, or baitshop, talk to the locals see what works for them. Some shops put where to go to target what you are looking for on a board. Do you have a boat?

Or you can fly me down as I am good luck fishing, and we can fish together.

My buddy just moved there, he is working in a coffee plantation...locals killed his dog for pooping in their yard!!!

As I said this IS a different world, rules are different here and one thing is to come and visit for a week or two and another one to move here to live.
Actually that applies to everywhere, when you go on vacation you only see/experience very few things...
When you live in a place you deal with a lot of situations you don't have to if you are passing by with everything already paid for.
Do you have a boat?
Err....yep (I hope so) otherwise would be a looong swim (and very difficult to troll at the same time, but the most dreaded thought would be where would I need to stick the fishing rod)

Just read post #3

I smashed my Blue sardine the other day on the boat casting to Bluefish. Bail flipped back and stopped my cast and flung my lure into the boat breaking the lip...bummer I have to go back to Cabelas!!! Sucks having one 20 mins away. Lure was catching too!!!

Plan your route and ask a bait shop if there are any good fishing holes on the way...or just set up a chum bucket and go for sharks!!! Most fish do not hang out in the open ocean, or else there would be no fish but BIG fish. Fish hang on structure most of the time, so target reefs, wrecks and what not. Fishing is pretty involved, our boat catches fish cause we know what to use and where to go for each species...if we want Bluefish we go for them, Flounder, Sharks...

None of us live where you are, and I doubt any have fished on a regular basis to offer you any real help. Bait shops and the docks are awesome spots to ask for help. I ask the guy with the most grey!!!

Thanks,
that is good info. In argentina I (and especially my father and brother) used to fish a lot but closer to the coast.
And another one of my brothers already crossed the atlantic and they didn't catch anything.
So that was my suspiction and now you confirmed with your info.
So I guess most of the fishing will happen at the beggining of the trip between Spain and Cape Verde and then at the end along southamerica.
That's one of the reason I asked because since most of the deep sea fishing here in Costa Rica is done in the Pacific and I know how picky the fish is in Argentina I wondered if there were specific lures for Pacific and Atlantic fish.

Tip
One of the tips that most often works is, if you see large debri
troll around them and you will mostl likely find fish in them.

Good luck in your trip!!!

Thanks for all these tips, hopefully it happens, there is some paperwork to be done with the boat still so hopefully everything is done in time before the end of September which is for when the departure is planned

Birds are you best ally on the open waters too. You see a big flock diving-working head for them, they are most likely eating bait that the bigger fish are pushing to the surface.
