If you are at a resort get out on one of the little sail boats and troll along the reef as fast as you can or walk along the beach away from the crowds and cast out and retrieve as fast as you can. Large hair jigs, body baits, spoons...silver. Don't forget leaders, lots of toothy critters.

dragging hair jigs or swim baits behind a peddle boat works great. Try to hook up with Aris he works security next door at the club Santa Lucia. We fish fished from shore at nite and caught 6-8 red snapper on cut bait. Aris and another guy that works were you are staying were the perfect guides and asked for nothing n return. a throw net is you best chance of getting any good bait to use. Ask around for Aris

I waded in the water every day fishing. White hair jigs were the most productive aside from live bait. If you can catch the little mullet type fish along shore and toss them out on a big circle hook on heavy mono, you can catch lots of small cudas. Caught bone fish on a drop shot dragged behind peddle boat. This place was by far the best shore fishing resort area that I have ever been to. 45 min up the road is cocoa beach were there is some great tarpon fishing. Find Dennis a beach vendor and go to his cousins fro lobster dinner at cocoa beach and do some fishing while you are there.. Just writing this has me wishing I was there again.

I've fished Cayo Coco just up from where you are and it was allot of fun, i mostly fished from shore and caught all kinds of smaller reef fish and one that looked like a man face. Met another Canadian who caught a small flounder on a piece of hot dog. Did a charter once with some buddies and got an Albacore Tuna and Barracuda on that trip but that was in Varidero, was not my cup of tea as we just trolled but still fun to reel in the big boys. I hear the best fishing in Cuba is on the Caribbean side but i cant complain small plastics with jig head worked the best for me but small mepps spinners were also getting me lots of smaller fish. By the time i went home all my tackle was gone between snagging on rocks and trading locals for carved stones so now i bring rods and reels to give away. Met a local who let me try trowing a net for these shad looking fish and man that is harder then the locals make it look. He said they do allot of tilapia fishing in the lakes and offered to take me but timing did not allow it that trip. Hoping to get back out this summer, hope you had a great time
