Light tackle fishing

I'll be staying at the Marriott for a week in late May '07.

All the fishing info I'm finding online is geared towards big game trolling offshore, Marlin/Sailfish/etc.

I'm looking for light tackle (spinning gear) fishing for Dolphin/Wahoo/Roosterfish etc.

Is it possible to fish from shore if a bring my own tackle? Is a license required?

Any info is appreciated.

Dolphin the fish, not Dolphin the marine mammal.

Also known as Mahi-Mahi or Dorado.

Ok---you learn something new every day!!

I'm sorry, I've never heard of a fish called a dolphin.

I love to fish also, but we fish for bass, pickeral, lake trout, catfish.

Hope you have a great time on your trip in May.

You don't need a license, you can fish from off shore. Catch me a Barracuda (Wahoo), ok?

Hey FL370 -

I am going to curaco in late august and I am wondering the same thing. I llived on the Indian River Lagoon for a while and am used to the light tackle fishing myself. 90 lb tarpon on Catala 400 reel w/17 lb mono, that kinda light tackle. Anyway. I have not been able to find any inshore or offshore boats that look good. I am going to keep looking and let me know if you find anything.

Hi:

Heres a thought!

Go to curacao-actief.com

They don't offer fishing but my husband emailed them and they gave him all kinds of info regarding sm fishing boats, tackle, bait, who to contact etc.

So just go to the above site and then clik on contact them for their email. They will get back to you in a couple of days with the info you want.

Hope this helps,

Taly
