Fishing technique :

The equipment and technique recommended for this area varies according to the species. Bonefish fishing will consist of fishing in shallow water on a solid bottom in search of schools of fish that patrol the sand.

The small tarpon can also be found in the lagoons, while the larger tarpon will be found in deeper water and sometimes along sandy beaches, but this fishing will mainly be done from a boat.
