Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Full day is best to get out as far as you need to fish for the big fish. Bathe yourself in sunscreen!

These excursions are not for the hardcore fishermen types who want to do everything, i.e., bait the hooks, throw the lines out, etc.,

Live bait for rooster is definitely the best, especially if you're looking for a big one ! Once done, move to popping and jigging around the rocks... soooo good !!

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

We also cruised out to Pacific ocean for deep sea fishing. Waves were gentle and the ride was smooth.

Wear shorts and flip flops due to wading to dingy to take you to the boat. Be prepared to take fish home with you.

Bring plenty of sunscreen and if possible bring a hand towel to wipe your hands when you get fish juice on them! Don't eat a big breakfast before going out, because the head on some boats aren't like what you'd find at a 4-Seasons resort! And if the bite is on, you'll be dead tired by the end of the day!!

Probably some of the best fishing in the world out of this port. Bring lots of protection from sun, long sleeve fishing shirts and pull over masks are great
