Fishing Tackle

Popper Fishing:

Popper Fishing is by far one of the most exciting fishing methods here in Costa Rica, offshore and inshore. Since the Gulf of Chiriquí is known for its picturesque little rocky outcrops and small islands, it is the perfect habitat for large Roosterfish, Jacks, Cubera Snappers, Barracudas inshore, or big tunas offshore, attacking your poppers as if there were no tomorrow. To target these species we offer you Fin-Nor and Shimano fishing rods and reels. The bigger ones are loaded with 80lb Tuf Line XP or FINS PRT Line and are used to fight big tunas. The smaller ones are provided for comfortable and persistent spinning with Poppers or Sliders inshore and offshore and are filled up with 65lb Tuf Line XP.

Jigging:

Jigging here in Costa Rica is a very effective fishing method. For Jigging enthusiasts, we offer one of the best available Jigging rods on the market made by Jigging Master. Combined with a Quantum Cabo 880 or 1280 fishing reel it’s a perfect and smooth outfit to fish with the whole day and catch everything that swims these Pacific waters like Yellowfin Tuna, Amberjack, Almaco Jack, Cubera Snapper, Grouper, and many more. Of course, we have a variety of metal jigs made by Jigging Master, Molix, etc. Deep-Sea Jigging for large Yellowfin Tuna for instance is the most exhausting fishing method you can imagine once a fish strikes your fishing lure. In order to survive a Yellowfin Tuna battle our fishing tackle consists additionally of VMC and Owner Hooks, Varivas assist line.
