  1. I guess it all depends on the conditions. If waves are pounding the shore, you will have a hard time hooking up. I will put it this way. I was down there for a week with my wife. I fished most mornings, most evenings and went trolling three times (30 min each). So I definitely didn't go hard everyday. In those 7 days I went 2/8. I had more than one fish on per day on average. I just happened to lose a lot of fish this time for some reason. As far as pressure goes, I would argue that Cuba, particularly Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria, receive very low pressure compared to some other places like Florida. The locals rarely fish with lures so that fish are not savy to them like in other places. Hence, I would most definitely consider going down there for an actually fishing trip. Especially between May and September.
  2. The bite is at sunrise as well as sunet if you are fishing from shore. I'm not sure what type of rod you are bringing, that will determine what you can throw. Send me a PM and I can help as much as I can. Cheers!
  3. I actually flew into Cayo Coco. From there, buses take tourists directly to their respective resorts (included in the resort package deal). The three main airports for tourists are Varadero, Cayo Coco and Santa Clara.
  4. Thank you! I don't really like talking in videos so I'm hoping to visually show people exactly what I did to catch fish. I try and stick with the same formula for all the videos on my channel.
  5. No, this was a catamaran. Most resorts will offer complementary 30 min catamaran rides right off the beach. Sometimes they try and push for you to pay 40 CUC so that they can take you fishing for 2 h. However I typically just go for the free 30 min. I've yet to go and not have something on my line.
  6. In terms of typical resort destinations, it is the best one I've been to in terms of land based fishing. You have all the options right there. People who have additional time can pay to go fish the reefs (either by resort catamaran or boat). At that point you will be catching anything and everything.
  7. Hi all, If anyone has considered trying out some saltwater fishing on their next trip to Cuba, I've put together a video from a recent trip to Cayo Guillermo in order to illustrate the what, where and how. Enjoy and subscribe to the channel for similar content!
  8. Hi guys, thought I'd share another quick video from beautiful Lower Buckhorn Lake and Honey Harbour. We managed to get into a number of species including a decent musky and a nice largemouth bass. Enjoy!
  9. Thank! That was a small walleye, but there are mooneye in the river.
  10. Quick video from the lower Grand river for those interested. Enjoy!
  11. Considering the amount of vegetation in that lake right now, I would say the pike are pretty safe. It's a challenge to find fishable water right now.
