Ok guys i have fished my entire life and consider myself a very good fisherman. Only problem is i am currently stationed in Guam. I have never even seen saltwater until coming here. I have been here for 2 yrs
now and have 2 more years left. I don't want to wait to get back to the states to get back into fishing but i dont know anything about saltwater. All i been doing since i been on island is hunting coconut crab and pig. So ill give you the details. Around the island there is a reef theres channels coming into to reef alot of
places but those are dangerous to fish near. So i fish inside the reef and able to wade out but dont really
need to. The water is about 2-4 ft deep and i know people catch small jack crevalle and skipjack tuna early in the morning and late in the day I just bought some kastmaster spoons to try and catch some but i was wondering if anyone has any tips on what lures to use or bait. Thanks.
It looks as though we have reversed roles. I lived on Guam over 40 years. Did every kind of fishing you can. Now I'm living in Oregon trying to learn to catch bass in our local lake. Fishing inside the reef is not very good. There are lucky strike larger fish but these days they are small and fewer. People use a lot of nets inside the reef. It sucks. Spear fishing used to be good but again, it's changed over the years. As summer comes on and things warm up you can use a small EE set up (ask anyone how) and catch baby skip jack in that 1 to 2 foot of water. You can also use various meaty bates or lures to fish in the boat channels. Hagatna Boat Basin channel has fish. Merizo pier as well. The best pole fishing is from a boat from 100 ft into shore or way out on the banks. Many different species will bite a baited hook or anything small and shinny. Use bigger hooks if you hope to find something bigger but smaller lures and bait will give you more action. Trolling can be really good or boring and expensive. Check the season and the bite before investing any money. You can always walk along the beaches with spoons or lures in the sunset hour or early morning casting out and retrieving. I had most of my luck using a variety of Rapalas or making my own squid looking lure. Over the years the locals made little jigs out of surgical glove rubber. Even if you don't catch, walking along the beach fishing at sunset is really beautiful and I miss it very much. Good Luck
