Default Re: Fishing?

[QUOTE=rooster;106295]I will be visiting Aruba for the first time during early May, and Iím an avid fisherman.

Following is my advise _ humble as it may be.

I plan to arm myself with a spinning rod, some spoons, jigs, and Redfish Magic spinners. LEAVE THOSE THINGS AT HOME AND GO TO THE LOCAL STORES HERE AND FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING LOCALLY. I ONCE TOOK A TON OF FLIES TO NAVAHOE DAMN TO FISH FOR TROUT AND THE LOCAL GUYS WERE USING DOUGH BALLS AND CORN. SO ..... MY STUFF STAYED IN THE CABIN AND I BOUGHT BREAD AND CANS OF CORN KERNELS.

Iím considering bringing an inflatable kayak. DO NOT GO BEYOND CONSIDERING. FIRST IF YOU GET OUT IN THE OCEAN, REMEMBER THAT WE HAVE STRONG CURRENTS AS WELL AS WINDS THAT RIP ACROSS THE TOP OF THE WATER. SECONDLY, IT WOULD BE A PAIN TO TRANSPORT, FILL, DEFLATE, AND TRANSPORT BACK.. NOT EVEN A MARLIN IS WORTH THE AGGRAVATIONS.

Any suggestions on lures or locations for Snook. MOST SNOOK I HAVE CAUGHT HAS BEEN OFF THE SHORE LINES FROM COSTA LINDA DOWN TO THE LA CABANA AREA. EARLY IN THE MORNING IS PERFECT. I HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK WITH SPOONS OR ANYTHING SHINY. I AM CONVINCED THAT SNOOK IS THE STUPIDEST FISH IN THE OCEAN SINCE I HAVE SEEN THEM CAUGHT ON TIN FOIL WRAPPED AROUND THE HOOK.

Your wife. SPEND SOME TIME WITH HER. IF SHE PUTS UP WITH A FISHERMAN HUSBAND IT IS OUT OF LOVE.

be well
