Hey Pippen I had a friend just return from Varadero last sunday and while he was down there he took a charter from one of the docks. Him and his wife headed out for about six hours and he said he had a great time, he caught three nice baracuda between 2-4' long. This was his first time chartering and it sounded like he cost himself a couple of nice fish grabbing the rod to quickly from the rod holder, he said the guide trimmed him up once after he lost a real nice one. All in all it was a positive report and I think he would do it again in a heart beat. I'll ask him what the charter cost when I see him next and what dock he went from. I'm booked for Turks and Caicos again in May, I can't wait to hit them salt flats again.
