Fishing - Santa Lucia

Hello

How is the fishing in the Santa Lucia area? Does anyone know if possible to go with hotel catamaran for 2 hr trip? We usually do this in Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria and love it

I know people including my husband who have brought their own rods and fished off the government pier. Sometimes it's good fishing, sometimes not, it's hit or miss.

Fishing excursion - 4 fishermen per boat, drinks, 3 hours, (full day also available). When my husband did this excursion he caught a barracuda. You have to have at least 4 people fishing to rent the boat.

Adults 65, Children 25 accompanied. They used to have a rate for people accompanying those fishing also. I will see if I can get an update on this excursion, you never know when prices change etc.

Just ask one of the chicos who take people out on the resort hobby-cats to take you out to the main reef 1.5 km's offshore to do a little fishing for a couple of hours. In theory, that shouldn't really cost you anything at an all-inclusive, although tipping him 10cuc for his 2 hours out on the water with you would be the fair thing to do. I've done this before, and also enjoyed some very interesting conversations while fishing too. Don't forget to pack the cervezas to share - for any Cuban hombre, Bucanero is preferable.

They keep the Barracudas and fillet the good eating ones for us and we take them back to the resort to have the chef cook them for us.
