Default Rookie in Aruba

As a first timer I had some "guy" questions. Does snyone have details on how to go fishing with the locals. I've read that if you go early to the fishing huts and pitch in on gas they will let ya go fishing with them. Just curious to know if anyone has tried this. Second, I'll be in Aruba during Thanksgiving and was wondering if anyone knew where to cath the Packers v Lions game on thanksgiving day (which Casino).

Best bet on the game is Champions, a restaurant in the Marriott. It might also show at one of the casinos. I have seen games shown in the sports book behind the poker room at the Excelsior. I haven't seen it often, though.

Yes, Champions is always hoppin' during football season.

Also, at night especially when you can see the screens better, I really like watching games outdoors on the deck at Hooters (high rise area). Huge flat-screen TVs are nice. Where I'm from (Wisconsin), I don't get to drink beer and watch football outside in 80 degree weather very often (...or should I say, ever!).

The Lion/Packer game shoud be on everywhere (Casino's, bars).

As for fishing, you might check with the owner of Driftwood or Wacky Wahoo. I believe they go out every morning to catch fish for their resturant. They might let you go along.
