i wa fortunate enough to be invited on a deep sea fishing trip with a couple of american guys. never been fishing before this but had a good result ( i think). we caught a couple of good size tuna, couple of barracuda and a mahi mahi... there were also a few that got away.( they were massive .. honest). no surprise there!!

the americans went the following day and had a very good trip, 5 very large mahi mahi and and a few other fish which were small in comparison.

if you do go fishing hopefully you will have just as good results.

Dont bother thinking of fishing in the sea at the Tam, there's hardly a fish in it. Might have something to do with the pelicans there. If you wanna catch on the "shore", get a cab into town and fish in the harbour opposite the Renaissance mall.
