Details: White Bass
Fishing some birds and thought we were going to get into the trout. Instead we stumbled on schooling white bass chasing shad (the saltwater kind).
Details: Blue Tilapia
Wife caught this nice tilapia on Lake Arenal near La Fortuna, Costa Rica. The tilapia is an invasive species to the lake after a tilapia farm had a few escapees. ...more Our hotel is grilling this one for dinner. We missed several nice rainbow bass hits today. We fished with Captain Ron who is an American that guides on the lake. Great guide and great trip. http://arenalfishing.com

Caught several Machaca today on Lake Arenal near the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica. Will throw up another blert that shows the teeth. I was throwing a topwater ...more plug and walking it. The fish would hit as soon as the bait splashed the surface. The Machaca is omnivorous and eats things that fall out of the rainforest trees such as fruits, nuts, and even bird droppings from cormorants.
