Fishing Questions / Fishing Equipment

We are booked for 8 days on Holbox in March. My husband and father are avid fisherman and are looking for information on trolling/bottom fishing and fishing from shore. They're looking to have fun and maybe catch some fish for dinner, and not really interested in trophy fishing.

Who can we contact for information on suggested equipment to bring? (We would like to bring a couple of fishing rods, reels, and a small amount of tackle.)

Is there a fishing pier or dock available for public use? Is there a place to purchase bait or other equipment?

Are we better off waiting until we arrive to find someone to book a fishing trip (or 2) with? Any recommendations for your favorite captain would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help!!

Contact Alejandro aka Ruso / Mr. Sandflea at Tarpun Club. He is a great guide. He specializes in fly fishing but can arrange other trips. We have spent many wonderful hours with him on the water catching many different species. Highly recommend you contact him.
