Hi LG, Your hubby can bring any bass type spinning gear in the 6#-8# range for close in fishing. This will work for the bonefish/ small cuda/ snapper that can be caught from shore/docks. If he goes out with a guide he may want something a little heftier in 12#--15# range. Must have wire leaders or the cuda will shred your lure supply in no time. There is virtually no tackle to be bought on the island so come prepared if you can. Reels should be saltwater type, and even then rinsed with fwater after each use. Any flashy spoon lure will work on cuda. I had luck with Yo-zuri, Crystal Minnows for jacks and macs. Most fish with bait down there, crab/conch/sardines. So bring hooks and weights. If you want some different fun, get a hold of a Mann 30+ Magnum Stretch and have your guide troll outside the reef if it's calm enough. He will probably have a bigger rod/reel for this...a 4.0 or so. Will get big grouper and mega cudas and whatever is prowling in the neighborhood. Dorado colored...or red/white worked best. Bring a couple as part of the tip for your guide. Around $10 (U.S.) here, but $30+ in Bze. Good luck and tight lines.
