Birds could be seen diving on baitfish along the Caribbean coast and schools of jacks crashed the bait with wild abandon and attracted the large Tarpon to join the feast. Unfortunately, the Barracudas also appeared and cut many of the fly streamers off and worse still, damaged our expensive flylines. We decided to return to the freshwater lagoons and fish for the smaller Guapote(Rainbow Bass) with lighter tackle. The next day, we were fortunate to find a shrimp trawler off shore and followed it as the nets were lifted and cleaned. The fish activity around the boat was extreme and soon had us experiencing double hook-ups and one broken rod. Again, we returned to the freshwater exhausted and searching for some quiet restful activity. The afternoon relief was fishing for Mojarras in Fish Creek using light bluegill rods and poppers.
