Hi Everybody-

My girlfriend and I will be traveling around the world for a year, starting in the middle of May. Our first stop is Caye Caulker. To extend our trip as long as possible, we are doing everything as inexpensively as we can. I will be doing all of my fishing from the beach. I am bringing a very small tackle box, as that will be all that I have room for in my pack. My plan was to mostly fish with 3/4 oz hopkins spoons with steel leaders, just casting as far out as possible and retrieving. I know very little about salt water fishing but I have heard this is a pretty standard set up that I could use in a lot of different places. My questions are:

-Will this set up work or is there some different lures that I really should be trying to pack?

-Where are good spots on the island to fish on the beach?

-Can you eat most of what you catch from the beach? Any species I should be aware of that I should not be eating or careful when handling? I will be staying at hostels, and where they have kitchens, I would love to catch/cook my own meals.

Thanks for your help!

You can fish from some of the docks; some of the types of fish are catch and release. You'll need a fishing license and this license page has an email address - you can write to ask for specifics:
