Deep Sea Fishing in Cuba
Many anglers - particularly to those who chase bonefish, tarpon and permit - still see Cuba as the last frontier of fly fish fantasy. These warm waters form part of the fast moving Gulf Stream and some of the best deep-sea fishing sites can be found off Cuba’s northern coast. Cuba Private Travel can hook you up with a charming and professional captain and crew.
Ernest Hemingway immortalized the romance of deep-sea fishing in Cuba in ‘The Old Man and The Sea’ so follow Papa’s footsteps to the North West coast, his favourite fishing destination. Bill fishing in Cuba retains the power and magic of Hemingway’s days and you can expect to find bonefish, wahoo, marlin, bonito, tuna, swordfish, sailfish, tarpon, jack, crevalle, snapper, barracuda and snook. On a full-day charter in season there’s a good chance of a 300-400lb specimen. But beware – these muscular mercurial creatures can swim up to fifty miles per hour!
‘Then the fish came alive, with his death in him, and rose high out of the water showing all his great length and width and all his power and his beauty. He seemed to hang in the air above the old man in the skiff. Then he fell into the water with a crash that sent spray over the old man and over all of the skiff.’
~ The Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemingway
