Regarding the split at night. There
is a bar there that has lights that
shine into the split. You will see tarpon
and many other fish. I tried everything
artificial I could. I even chummed
with what the locals call "sardines"(probably
and then floating a whole sardine .
I didn't even get a bump. I saw and spoke
to many who tried and had no luck.
Ask the locals and they will tell you that
the fish in the split at night are educated.
My theory is that they are feeding on
shrimp. If you could get live shrimp somehow
or bring some frozen whole shrimp I think
you could slam them. You can however catch
snappers from the other docks around the island, evening being the best time.
I did see bonefish around the west side
of the island in the early morning but never
made an attempt to catch them. Tight lines
and best of luck.
