    Roatan?

    Anyone fished there? Booked our flights last night. Doing some reading up on it this morning it sounds like there's pretty good public flats for bones and permits. Hoping to maybe find someone who has some specifics on areas I should check out.

    They gave some specifics on patterns and colors:

    These are the guys I'm going to fish with and they also guide at Guanaja. He said pretty much the same patterns for both islands.

    The Blue Parrot has a L-R-C evening that is pretty fun. A fun group of ex-pats and their ilk hang out there. Good food too.

    I duno if its changed much but > 20 years ago I flew Roatan/ la Ceiba/ Utila from Miami to go diving on Utila

    scoring weed was easy, Gord the boatman knew a guy with a large bail of the stuff sitting in a shack on the dock, it probably fell out of the sky

    I felt pretty safe on the bay islands but on the way out while overnighting in la Ceiba on the mainland not so much

    My first clue was the army dudes with AK47's and defenders on each floor of the hotel

    The head chef at the place my wife works at is from Honduras and he said we really gotta try and get over to Utila. He had nothing but great things to say about it. Gonna see if we can take a boat over for a day trip or something like that.

    The sand flew are no joke around there. In that "fancier" part on the west end, they control them well, but that is about it. Didn't bother me like mosquitoes don't bother me. But the wife on the other hand...benedryl city.

    " de boat comes tuesday mon " so the boat comes once a week and if its too rough the boat just doesn't come, which means some shit starts to run out. You would probably be better to take a cheap flight Roatan to La Ceiba and out to Utila ... spoke n hub

    Utila had 12 dive schools in a half mile of the main street which started right at the dirt air strip, they catered mostly to young folk backpacking ( in every language ) the world before they settled into real jobs, a dive magazine at the time made the statement " inadequete for the discerning american diver " or SFT like that but it was cheap n chill ... you couldn't expect much of a hotel for 3$ a night

    any how things may have changed, just watch where you go, keep your head up and have a good time

    I think your beta might be a bit outdated:

    I won't be able to fill you in on that I don't think. We are flying through El Salvador, not sure that will be much better but we will have a day layover to kill there so I can try and find out.
