Catching bait in Costa Rica and Panama can be the easiest thing on this list of things to do for the day of fishing or it can be a night mare ! We do a lot more live baiting in Panama because of the amount of Black Marlin throughout the region of the Hannibal Bank and the Island of Montousa we are much more equipped in the morning for live bait success! We have small spinning rods with chunks of ballyhoo on circle hooks ready to go, 30 lb tackle with giant hand made sabiki riggs ready for the morning trip out to the fishing grounds and we also have this little guy pictured here rigged on a 50w penn international! We rigg them on 50’s well…. because they also have caught wahoo, mahi mahi, tuna and large skip jack witch we like the most! Both Costa Rica and Panama are great for live baiting so now a days we are always rigged and ready but, when it really comes down to it and the water is super clear and the sun is high this is our go to lure for the surface live baits. Small yellow fin tuna, big skip jack and bonita are our go to baits! My favorite is the skip jack! Whenever we seem to have a healthy skip on the line for bait it seems to produce some sort of Marlin whether it be blue, stripe or black!
