    3.How is fishing on the surf?
    4.Is fishing during the day worthwile?

    Mekaeel - where-ever you plan to fish, please just be very careful of the hippo's. You might end up 6-feet under if you don't watch out. There have been a LOT of reports in the last few years of hippo's attacking people who were fishing at the estuarine.

    BUT - other than that - I can just say: "I WISH WAS WAS YOU" ;-)

    forget about the hippos...lol. The crocs of st lucia takes an average of 4 people a year, only 2 was taken so far, so do not be the 3rd.

    when we were there the guys were standing so far away from the water, couldnt understand why, then we got told not to go close because of the crocs.

    Yeah lol. The first time i went there i was about 10 years old and my cuz and i didnt know about crocs and hippos. We went for a swim in the estuary. A few weeks later there was an article in the paper about a kid who got bitten by a croc.

    Speaking about crocs. The last time i went there, it was at night, and another fisherman hooked a skate and as he brought it towards the shallow waters, we could see a croc chasing it.As he landed the skate the croc grabbed it. Was rather cool to watch though.
