Hi Italo, hows it going, my brother and I are either going to cuba close to varadero or Mexico cancun. In april. Wondering if you know anyone down there to take us out fishing deep sea and maybe the flats. What kind of fish would we fish for in April. Bone fishing looks pretty fun. Also, what could I bring to tip a Charter Boat Operator to get them to find us some fish. Hope you can help me out? Thanks G.B. John

Hi John…Those two locations are pretty unique. I am not sure what you will be catching off-shore, could be barracuda, small black fin tuna, mackerel, etc. In-shore there will be bonefish available only if ther are some extensive flats for them to feed on. I have fished in Cuba at Key Largo, Key Coco, Isle of Youth and Gardens of the Queen, but not near Varadero, so I can\’t comment of the fishing available there. Normall fishing guide/charter boat tips are about $20/per person, so if there are two of you, you would give the guide/charter boat $40 for the day as a tip. Tips don\’t necessarily mean that you will get into fish since they are given at the end of the fishing trip. Asking a lot of questions and trying to see if your guide/charter boat is compitent should help in your confidence that you will catch fish…God bless you, Italo
