Though we’re back from Los Sueños Costa Rica we made sure to catch up with the Jaruco team on their 90′ Jarrett Bay to see what gear is getting used offshore. Edward Barr gives us the 411 on rods, reels and everything between.
The fishing in Costa Rica has been hotter than the heat index on a black sand beach and during the past few months the fleet out of Los Sueños has seen a quite a few 30+ bite days. A week prior to Leg III of the Signature Triple Crown Series, Capt. Lance Hightower along with mates Justin Ringer, Diego Esquivel, Chase Travers, Kristie Evans and adventurous owners Jerry and Donna Reynolds aboard their 64’ Weaver Vaquero found a frenzy of sailfish and proceeded to set a new record for the most Pacific sailfish released in a single day of fishing.

The 2021 Los Sueños Tournament Series has come and gone and I’d like to share a few more images from the series before they are tucked away on our server until who knows when. Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to the Jaruco operation for hosting me during the series. Needless to say, the boat is amazing and the entire program is like no other. Captain Jimmy definitely put us In The Bite. Congratulations to Team Galati on an unprecedented sweep during Leg 3. I’d like to also congratulate a few of our Champion’s Cup teams including Fish Tank, Uno Mas and Eight Eight’s who each found a spot on the leaderboard throughout the series. Till next time, safe travels and tight lines.

Carson Byers of the Freebie creates a video from his exploits as an observer in Costa Rica this spring. When you see the InTheBite shirt, you’ll see the 74-foot Tribute Nemesis releasing a blue marlin. Good video worth the watch- enjoy!
