Kralendijk, Bonaire

Background
Fishing has been a part of my life ever since I could walk and every moment I could go fishing I was fishing. After moving to Bonaire and getting hooked on saltwater fishing there was not much else I would rather do than taking people out and getting them just as hooked as I am to fishing offshore or on the flats
Techniques
Going after that big one is of course on everybody's bucket list and therefore I love big game trolling for Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, and pelagics like Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. Fishing with live bait and light tackle for Mahi Mahi and Wahoo is also very exiting to me. Jigging with light or medium tackle can also bring a variety of species into the boat, from Blackfin Tuna, to Jacks, and even Wahoo. The moment that fish strikes and the reel starts screaming you know you have some cranking to do. Ulitmate light tackle in the flats for bonefish and other shallow water species is a very nice change of scenery, and the fishing style/technique requires real finesse. Trying to present your jig or fly just at the right time and place and being able to see the fish take it is priceless.
