Jardines de la Reina (also: Gardens of the Queen) is an archipelago in the southern part of Cuba, located in the Caribbean Sea. It is Cuba’s second largest archipelago formed by more than 600 cays and islands.
This is a unique place for different fishing styles.
Plenty of channels and straits along the coral reef reveal fantastic opportunities for any fisherman. Due to the archipelago stretching from the North to the South one can choose his own favorite fishing place, as well as to hide behind the islands in a windy weather.
The frequent reef trophy is Jack Crevalle (Caranx) with average weight 10 kg or Snapper (Kubera).
Jack is fearless – he bites at any lure that you offer. Once you’ve noticed an amber shoal near the surface – you’d better cast, and something is sure to get on the hook providing a desired moment of struggle. The fish doesn’t give up even inside the boat.
Barracuda is an immense part of the fishing experience here. Those cunning pervasive predators are often after the lure, yet closer to the boat they lose interest and dive deeper. They are often to jump out of the water with the lure in the mouth and cut it off by the devil sharp teeth, that’s why you’ll need to take many spare steel leaders. Barracuda’s teeth are legendary – the lure can be done away in a moment.
And surely – the Tarpon – silver king of the Caribbean Sea. This fishing battle will impress even the most experienced anglers. Constant jumps in the air and furious thrashing around reduce the reached control to nothing. That makes final victory so pleasant and exciting. The Tarpons up to 50-70 also happen quite often.
The Caribbean Sea and this Cuba adventure totally shift the stereotype that sea fishing is only limited by trolling. This fishing destination is very dynamic, multi-faceted and truly unforgettable.
