Stayed there for 3 days at Green Beach B&B. Did some snorkeling and went out on a small fishing boat trying to catch some fish for our dinner. Very small island and easy to do on a scooter.

Sorry. My visit was simply a day trip. I know nothing about deep-sea fishing except for the fish I ate. Flying fish, that seems to be a type of marlin, is the big deal here. Best of luck.
