Slowly but surely, Aruba has climbed to the top tier of fishing destinations in the Caribbean. And for good reason. With amazing weather year-round, and a wide range of exciting fish to catch, this colorful island has all the ingredients you need for a bucket list fishing experience.
Fishing in Aruba is exceptionally good in July. King Mackerel enter the scene in full force, and you can catch them on the surrounding reefs within just minutes from the coastline. Wahoo fishing is good as usual, and Mahi are biting hard.
Captain Juan Carlos aboard Charters Aruba has had a pretty good going with Mahi in the past month. If you happen to catch one yourself, the Captain will clean and fillet your catch, so you can bring it to a local restaurant for a nice dinner to round the day off.
Inshore, Snapper and Grouper fishing has been on fire. A four-hour outing will let you catch your fill of these critters. If you’re a Tarpon fishing enthusiast, July is probably your last chance to catch a record-breaker before the bite slows down.
If you’re after bigger fish, however, you’ll be pleased to know that Yellowfin Tuna fishing is still going strong. You won’t need long to reach the offshore fishing grounds, so an 8-hour outing will give you plenty of time to wrestle these monsters.
