While walking along the Malecón, you will notice men fishing from shore. Others cast off in the morning from Canal de Entrada in their small wooden boats. It is common to see these anglers carrying their fresh catch toward home. What you won’t find is them selling their fish. It is illegal … surprising on an island surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. Tourists can charter deep sea excursions. They frequently catch large tuna, sailfish and marlins. Fly fishing and trolling the saltwater flats is also available. The coastal waters encircling Cuba are pristine with plenty of trophy fish.
