Thread: Fishing Cuba

  1. #1

    Default Fishing Cuba

    Any you guys fished in Cuba or is that still somewhere off limits? Couple of anglers I know have recently returned & the Bonefish & Permit fishing was superb. One of these places that I might indeed visit in the future. Never see any reports on American boards,just wondered if there was some issue or what.

    This is from an online article I found:

    "U.S. citizens are barred from traveling to Cuba without government permission under a U.S. trade embargo imposed half a century ago (1959) that can only be lifted by Congress."

    Still, the article also went on to say:
    "Just over 98,000 U.S. citizens visited Cuba in 2012..."
    and
    "As well as allowing Cuban Americans to travel to Cuba freely, Obama authorized licenses for "purposeful" travel to more than 250 Cuba travel agents and allowed more airports to provide charter service between the two countries.
    The program, which began in 2011 and requires annual renewal of permission to bring groups to Cuba, allows for educational and cultural travel. The regulations require detailed itineraries of each traveling group."

    Tampa now has direct flights to Cuba. I would certainly think bonefish and permit would be "purposeful".

    Thanks Guys, Would have though holiday/fishing trip was nothing to do with trade but guess your Government is still pissed of with Castro. Seems a bit silly to me after so long, 1959 you say.
    Still all the more fish for the rest of us. LOL

    Default A change is coming.

    I think we will see a big change in our relationship with Cuba in the next few years. Some Florida politicians have come out favoring dropping restrictions and there is a lot less oposition from the Cuban community in south Florida. We may be fishing the Cuban flats before the next Republican president.
