    also too my husband has fished from time to time on past trips....usually at Mangel Halto area and Arashi Beach.
    you also may want to reach out to one of the forum members Lucky. he fishes at Arashi when he is on island usually in late Nov/early Dec.

    Hi Andy, welcome to the forum. I believe forum member Coldsteel also fishes in Aruba. To send a private message to a forum member click on their screen name and then click on "private message".

    Unfortunately shore fishing is not as productive as here in the States,I’ve fished early morning(at sunup)at Arashi beach and caught some bonefish,interestingly snorkeled during the day at Arashi and saw schools of a couple hundred normally shy bonefish amongst the bathers.Besides there I’ve seen locals balloon fishing just south of the point at California sand dunes.i have heard about but not fished Spanish lagoon down by Mangel halto for small Tarpon and Permit having said that I’ve snorkeled from Baby beach to Arashi beach and have not seen any games fish besides the Bonefish and an occasional Horse eye jack.good luck and tight lines.

    Andy H, I replied to your PM. Check out my techniques for early morning action along the beaches. Bring 4 to 6 inch soft plastic swim baits. Deadly when the birds are diving!
