The fishing trip was great for the most part. There were two couples and the captain and we caught LOTS of fish. The 13-gallon pail was so full, the last few fish caught kept jumping out of the pail onto the floor of the boat. Afterward the captain took us to a secluded beach to explore while he made fresh ceviche. The only problem we had is the captain did not offer us any fish to take with us. It was ackward to ask when we were leaving because the fish were nowhere in sight. He had transported to a different cooler. When I went back an hour or so later to ask about it, we were told ironically by the owner of the business who also owns a seafood restaurant that we should have asked. The right things to do would have been to offer us a free fish dinner or some such thing, but it did not happen. It was a good trip but it taught me a good lesson. The next island we visited I made sure to ask before we got on the boat, are we allowed to take the fish we catch?
It was a highlight of our 5 day stay. Rojo was our guide - very helpful, informative and fun. We line caught red mouth, yellow tail, then he and the boat captain fixed the best ceviche I've ever had. We had a wonderful time!
