  1. Hi, I'm going to Saint Martin right after Christmas and want to put myself on some tarpon. Any tips? I was thinking of bringing a rod and reel, or maybe just a reel and renting a rod there. I wanted to go with that one guide service, but he went out of business. I've heard I should use at least 300 yards of 50 lb braid, 6/0-10/0 hooks, and 80 lb mono leader. I've also heard I should go at night to a bridge, and also that the southwest side of the island is where the tarpon are. Is there a place on the island where I can get bait? Thanks
  2. Hello, First off, I am new to both this forum and to salt water fly fishing, although I have been fishing fresh water in Montana and Alaska for several years now. This spring I will be visiting the Caribbean island of Saint Martin (or whichever spelling is correct), and I have 4 days with nothing planned, so my hope is that I can pack a rod down and throw a few flies. That said, my initial research on fly fishing on the island has proven fruitless. The only fly fishing guide service I have seen mentioned is Tyt Lynz, but their website is down and I do not see any comments on them in the past several years. However, my preference is to only hire a guide as a last resort. I am hoping someone can give me some general info about places to fish, what fish to expect, how to fish them, and what rod/reel/line setup to bring, as well what flies might work. So yes, I am asking a lot, but my guess is there is someone out there who has fished this island, and I would love to glean some knowledge. My thought was to bring my 9' 10wt. Sage One, as it is the only rod in my quiver that seems appropriate for the larger fish, like tarpon, which seem to be fairly common in the inland water. I just want to catch fish, and I am willing to do what it take to make it happen, so lay it on me! Thank you in advance for any information you share. I know noobs can be a pain in these forums because we don't contribute, but I appreciate you helping facilitate my learning and adventure! CK
