  1. A quick guide on how to jig for steelhead in the Niagara River. The footage was filmed in May but the steelhead are still in there! Enjoy!
  2. Thanks, I try and keep them short and informative. Sub to the channel if you like it, I'll keep em coming.
  3. Thought I'd share another quick video on how to catch spring dropbacks using lures. Enjoy and subscribe!
  4. Thought I'd share a quick video on setting up for float fishing the Niagara River for steelhead, including tackle, floats, and baits. Enjoy and subscribe!
  5. I haven't been there but I've been to a few other places in Cuba. It's similar tactics regardless of where you go. You want to focus on casting from shore (beach or off some rocks), bridges, and piers. You can also troll off of catamarans or get them to take you to the reefs where you can go nuts on fish. I made quick video on that in November.
  6. I would say that in the mornings it was a little above normal. It goes go up in the afternoon though. It's definitely fishable though. You can tell from the video where it was, it wasn't bad at all.
  7. That footage was shot this week, it was fine when I was there. Did it go up this weekend or something?
  8. Hi all, Just a quick video from a recent trip to the Lower Niagara River where I try and quickly describe how to locate good drifts that typically hold Steelhead. Enjoy and subscribe!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
