FAQ’s about your Costa Rica fishing trip on the Predator
For those that are going deep sea or inshore fishing for the first time on the Predator, or fishing for the first time anywhere, here are some good things to know.
What to Bring
Be sure to bring suntan lotion, even if it is an overcast day. When you are on the water, you not only receive the rays directly, but those reflecting off the water. So you will burn or tan much more quickly.
If you get seasick be sure to pack some Dramamine. If you are not sure if you will need it, we recommend just taking it. Getting seasick is not the thing you want to remember most about your fishing trip. Find the no-doze type so that you don’t fall asleep on your trip either.
We supply lunch, an assortment of beverages, including water and beer, life jackets and of coarse the bait and fishing equipment.
It is ok to bring a video camera and camera. You will want to take pictures and video as your friends reel in their big catch and you will want someone to capture the experience for you. If you have a great time and get some nice shots we appreciate you sharing them on our facebook page!

What to Expect
We meet at around 7:00 am in the morning at the Marina at Los Suenos. We ride out for about an hour or so and then begin to fish. When deep sea fishing you may catch marlin, sail fish, tuna and dorado (mahi mahi.) Sail fish and marlin are catch and release. Tuna and dorado make excellent sushi and fillets.
