    I'm not usually moved by stories of fishing abroad....i've got to much i want to do here......but your holiday story sounded like real fishing fun, i wouldn't mind a Snook or two!!
    Oh and it wouldn't have been my arm i would have worried about with regard the ray!!!!!!

    Cheers lads,

    I have to say despite the fact it wasn't massive it's without doubt one of the most exiting angling experiences I've ever had. The lightening, sharks in the water, lack of bait and the clock ticking away all combined to make it a really thrilling experience.

    a hundred pound Tarpon Coops ?.........well I can dream , eh?

    If you want to see a snook just type it in a search engine there are loads of pictures of them on articles/catch reports from American anglers.

    and by the way Paul, with regard to where the stinger might strike, in the words of Basil Fawlty

    Gary just read your article as I was doing a search.....I did a fair bit of Snook fishing in Florida when I was in the states on a submarine great fish great fight and fantastic for the table, we used live mullet for bait small ones about 2-3 inches long fished on the jetty at night dropped bait in a shoal and then just hold on big snook hid under the jetty and just launched themselves at the shoal of bait fish.....great memories.....I remember one night I nearly hit the security alarm I was fishing merrily and a huge Manatee ( think thats right!!) came swimming past ...thought it was a frogman attacking the sub LMAO

    Tarpon don't have to be 100lb before they are fun. Even 20-40 fish go like hell and never stop jumping. I just wish we had some on this side of the pond. Anyone know where I can find one on this side?

    The Kuanza River in Northern Angola.

    I think it may still be a war zone however.

    Angola was marvellous under the Pork & Cheeses.

    Thanks Ron but a war zone does not go down too well with the missus. Any other ideas?
