In februari 2014 my friend and I have a very nice day with Captain Nick.
We have fishing a lot in the tropical and make tours with fishermen from Sweden to Islamorada in Florida. There we have fishing in Everglades and off shore, for many years.
Coming to Antigua in 5 januari 2014 and start fishing off shore and on the reef, it was a lot of wind and the see was not good to us. We get Baracudas, Wahoos, Mai.Mai and some good snappers.
Then we look at the internet and read about Captain Nick, we told him that we are interested of fishing Tarpon for tube and fishing with flee from the flats. We book him for one whole day.
In the morning Captain Nick standing utside our house and sade goooood mooooorning. Than he take us on a ride in his car and stop after 20 minutes and say We are at the fishing spot.
After blowing up the tubes and try to learn us about fishing with flee from a tube. Ha understand that we never have done this before. A big thanks for your good feeling that you have to old gentlemen to take care of. You did that in a very good way!
Well out on the wather we begin to look after Tarpons who went up to the surf and when we find them try to cast and show them the flee.
After one hour I feel grate in the tube and went away for my self. The I cast the flee in every direktion and I come right at the moment a Tarpon was showing himself. I was prepard to do exactly as Capt. Nick have told me, always have direkt contakt with the line and meet the fish by hocking with my hand and than rise my rod. The fish was hooked and than star a fight that I always come to remember. The fish run out all the line and I only have the backline left when I can start to get him to me. The fish went up from the wather severl times and I have to hold him tight so the hook not get him lose. After some time, I do not remember the time, I get him in to my tube. When I was wondering what to do, Capt. Nicke runs up just behind me and told me that I should take the fish from one side to the next side to take the rest of the power from the fish.
When I get the fish in my arms I think that this was a good time to die in, so emty was my body and so happy was my brain. THIS WAS THE ULTIMATE FISHING IN TROPICAL!
I gladly rekomended Captain Nick for your fishing trip in Antigua.
