I Love Aruba Re: Fishing?

Check this thread out, rooster. I remember when there was a "snook" conversation going on!

Iím primarily interested in snook, and love fishing topwater (but, Iíve read that topwater lures are not the most effective in Aruba). All of my fishing will be done early in the morning as my wife has plans for the remainder of the day/night.

Iím considering bringing an inflatable kayak to reach deeper water, and maybe the Spanish Lagoon. Do you think that it is worthwhile to bring the kayak? It is a hassle, but if it is going to improve my chances for fish, I will get it on the plane!

Any suggestions on lures or locations for Snook (anything really) would be greatly appreciated.
