ARUBA - DEEP SEA FISHING

Set out to the reef surrounding Aruba and fish some of the Caribbean’s best fishing spots. When you arrive at the outside deep waters of the reef, the crew will put out 6 to 8 rods with lures or dead bait on them. These lures and baits will then be trolled along the drop off or in the deeper waters depending on which fish you are targeting. During this time “trolling” the boat will move between 6 to 8 knots and the crew will keep an eye out for birds, free jumping fish or even debris in the ocean.

Common Names: Yellowfin Tuna, Allison Tuna, Backache

The Yellowfin is perhaps the most colorful of all the tuna. Found globally in tropical and subtropical seas, it's one of the world's most popular fish. Even small Yellowfin tax light tackle to the limits, and the brute strength of larger fish requires heavy stand-up gear. Not only great gamefish, Yellowfin are mighty tasty. This dual attribute causes anglers to travel thousands of miles to reach these 'destination' fish. Wherever found, Yellowfin tuna will have a following, both sport and commercial.M A pelagic species, Yellowfin are fond of deep blue water. In the Atlantic, they will be found in the Gulf Stream year-around. The flesh of this fish is light, not dark like the Bluefin or white like the Albacore. Yellowfin can sometimes be distinguished from near cousins, Blackfin and Bigeye Tuna, by their long second dorsal and anal fins, but not all individuals have this exaggeration. In a sense, Yellowfin are an eating-machine, putting on pounds like no other fish. A year-and-a-half old Yellowfin can weigh 8 pounds, and by its fourth year the fish will scale out at a whopping 140 pounds.

Aruba

Aruba

BLUE MARLIN

Real Name:

Average Weight: 100 lb. - 500 lb.

Peak Weight:

IGFA Record:

Common Names:

Of all the world's marine game fish, none is more celebrated or generates more excitement than the blue marlin. The fish of Hemingway's Old Man and The Sea fights with a strength that is only exceeded by that of the giant bluefin tuna, and often makes spectacular leaps when first hooked. Plus, there's something about the fish's sleek appearance, accented by a rapier bill, that inspires awe in even the most casual angler. Then, of course, there is the fish's size. Blue marlin weighing up to 1,400 pounds have been caught on rod and reel, and many experts believe that they attain even greater sizes (fish weighing over 2,000 pounds have reportedly been hooked and lost).

Although considered a heavy-tackle adversary, smaller blue marlin (100 to 300 pounds) make for excellent sport on 20- to 30-pound-class stand-up tackle and even fly gear. In some locations, at certain times of the year, fish of this size can be fairly numerous.

Aruba
