What is FADs Fishing

FADs fishing is heading offshore on overnight trips to the famed Seamounts. Here human-made FADs attract bait fish.

A FAD is a Fish Aggregating Device (FAD). These human-made, floating or subsurface objects attract fish. Either stationary or drifting, FADs are made from a variety of materials both natural and synthetic.

FADs take advantage of the animal’s instinct to seek shelter around structure and objects.

Ropes and lines encourage the settlement of marine plants and small crustaceans. In turn, this attracts small fish, which in turn attracts larger species.

The human-made, stationary FADs are strategically located on the Seamounts.

They become home for thousands of small Tunas, which attract Marlin. Here anglers have more opportunity to get several Marlin releases a day.

Costa Rica’s FADs are holding absolutely incredible numbers of blue Marlin. This fishery is giving anglers the chance to have double-digit blue Marlin bites a day, especially during a multi-day Seamount trip.

Seamount Fishing in Costa Rica

Costa Rica has long been one of the most sought-after destinations in the world. It offers both world-class and beautiful landscapes.

When it comes to the Seamounts, this is the ultimate fishery. The dormant volcano ridge that runs from mainland Costa Rica to Coco Island makes up the Seamount ridge.

These Seamounts are where you find the FADs. To access these Costa Rica Seamounts it’s necessary to spend the night on the boat.

Stay as long as 4-5 nights, depending on how much time you want to be on the water.

Start your Seamount fishing from one of the marinas in the Central Pacific. Los Sueños or Quepos are the key destinations for Seamount and FAD fishing adventures.

Over the past years, it has become clear this is one of the best Marlin experiences in the world. With boats catching double-digit Marlin daily, this is the ultimate Marlin fishery.

Marlin are the main target species when fishing the Seamounts, but there are other species to catch like Sailfish, Mahi-mahi, or Tuna.

If you are looking for a one of a kind Marlin fishing experience that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world, this is the trip for you!
