Lake Arenal, in the Northern Volcanic region of Costa Rica is a top tourist destination receiving about 80% of Costa Rica’s visitors due to its natural attractions. World-famous, and still active, Volcan Arenal tops the list, yet beautiful Lake Arenal does not fall behind. Lake Arenal is the perfect setting for water sports and, above all, bass fishing! Lake Arenal Bass Fishing is top class, up to the taste of any angler who’s tried freshwater fishing anywhere else in the world.
At Lake Arenal Bass Fishing you will come face to face with local rainbow bass, the “Guapote”, a Central American Rainbow Bass tougher than any Largemouth or Smallmouth bass you could have encountered before. With a mouth full of teeth and a big lump on its forehead, its appearance is far away from the translation of its name: handsome. Anyhow, this fish fights back as hard as its ugliness! Plus the Guapote can reach over 12 pounds and is DELICIOUS to eat. Lake Arenal Bass Fishing has another popular fish species perfect for the occasion, the Machaca or Sabalete, a smaller member of the Tarpon family also known by locals and anglers for its fighting ability.
Bass fishing in Lake Arenal is not only great sport fishing but also very enjoyable; the natural setting is breathtaking and being located at the base of Volcan Arenal brings you close enough to hear the rumbling in its core.
