Bring some extra food for yourself especially if you are a big eater. This is a long time to be out on the water if you get hungry. Also confirm the amount of time out on the water and expected time to be at the dock. I thought that we had enough time for some bottom fishing like an hour or so as we had a late start and came back early. Our 8 hour trip was only around 6 hours. Also if you catch a fish get some clarity before you leave as we where told that you can take the fish to a restaurant for them to cook for you or back to your resort. I caught a marlin and we came back with it whole and we didnt leave with it.

Ask locals what fish you are most likely to catch the time of year you go. Take extra clothes for warmth and sun protection because it can go from cold to hot very quickly and some boats have no place to get out of the sun.

Communicate with your fleet operators. Bring a waterproof jacket. Check the time of year for the best fishing for what you want to fish for or just go with whatever is out there at the time. I hear March/April is very good.

Great fishing for all species. Escuelo guys did a great job. You will not be disappointed! We also fished El Salto for 2 days, and the El Salto Lodge put us on fish and fed us well. This was truly a "bucket list" trip!

Bring Dramamine and sunscreen, and it is not a guaranty that you will catch fish.

Fishing in June is hit and miss, next time we will be back in October - November.

March is late in the fishing season, I've had much better luck in November, December.
