Deep-sea fishing or fishing in the shallow waters of Aruba both lead to large catches of diverse species. The best fishing months are from October to February, when the fish are migrating. But different species, including tuna, king mackerel, and wahoo can be caught year-round. Locals suggest using live bait, such as squid and conch, for the most interesting catches; especially if you want to catch snapper and grouper, the area’s most popular fish. A majority of fishing in Aruba is done on the southwest coast, away from the wind and waves. The deep-sea fishermen catch fish from depths of up to 400 feet using the line fishing technique, but some of strongest fighters are found in shallow water. Whether fishing from the shore or on a boat, if you use the right bait, the big fish will bite.
