Cuba: Jardines de la Reina, May 2017

More and more Cuba turns out to be my personal hotspot for saltwater fishing. Especially at the end of April to mid-May, when you find big migration tarpons at the Jardines de la Reina. They often come in large schools to spawn near the mangroves.

This is the primetime, and chances to catch a really big tarpon are really good. Every day you can observe many of them and you can also hook several times. This unique opportunity combined with our passion for fishing – that’s what brings us here time and again.

Once again I was able to share the Halcon with good friends for a period of two full weeks – unforgettable. In short: first class fishing, the best guides, with excellent food in this tropical nature reserve – what more could you ask for!
