I'm interested in doing some beach fishing as well as chartering a boat. Is it worth while bringing my own tackle to try my luck from the beach for a few hours in the evening? Don't want to bring it along if it isn't worth while. Appreciate any feedback.

You'll do much better in the boat...

Yeah, you'll certainly do better in a boat, but you can also score from the beach. Almost nobody fishes from the beach on AC, but then almost nobody fishes, period, out of AC. There are limited places to fish from the beach, but if you're willing to get in a cart and get away from the resorts, bonefish and all of the local reef fish are in abundant supply. Ultra-light tackle with small spinners and grubs will catch almost everything. Rattletraps will also catch most of the reef fish, plus barracuda. Bring your gear, and Good Fishing. That said, ALL of the local guides can put you on fish for a VERY reasonable price.

Yes! Bring your fishing gear! I fished from shore very successfully on two previous visits. Plan to do it again a week from now. I fished for bonefish from the flats at the cut just north of San Pedro, from the beaches north of the cut and from the docks and beaches in toen and south of town. Caught bonefish just about anytime water conditions were right, any time of day...Water must be calm.

Fished for dinner using sardines purchsed at a bait shop immediately side of the airport. Fished from the beach and docks in town and on the south side of town beginning about 4:00 PM. We often cooked in the condo and found restaurants very willing to clean and serve my fish for about $5.00 per person. They were especially willing if I had a little extra fish that they could serve to others at full price.

There are many good guides and fishing from a boat is an option. I did it and enjoyed it although that tarpon still eludes me. You can fish for an hour or more anytime you feel like it with your own gear. By all means, do it!

Good luck!

Jim

Almost forgot...
There is a good tackle shop owned by an American on the beach just south of town. He can furnish the jigs that I found very good for bonefish from the beach.

Frozen sardines are available at the bait shop on the street that runs parallel with and immediately west of the airport runway.

Good luck!

Jim

Thank you Jim and Capt. Marty.

Jim, you convinced me, I will bring my stuff and test my luck. Sounds like we will be there at the same time. I will be there from the 16th to the 23rd or 26th. I'll try to leave some fish for you since you were so kind to give me some free advise.

Marty, I have found many subjects with some input from you and I appreciate them all. This message board has been a great source of information for me.

Take care,

Bruce

Scubaldy,

Staying at Banana Beach. With a name like Scubaldy, I presume you will be diving. I too will be diving as well as fishing obviously, any tips on which company to go with or where to go besides what is already on the message boards?


Marty, I'm not much in to fly fishing but I will check out his shop. Think I'll stick with a spinning reel.
