Fishing in Caribbean

This is a topic that should have more information I think. I was fishing in Costa Rica and learned a trick use the long nylon heavy leader for Darado and after boating the fish leave the hook in and pull the tail around and tie it with the leader. This keeps the fish from thrashing around and causing problems in the cockpit. The other trick was to use Coke a Cola and pour some in the fishes mouth and it has the same affect as the alcohol killing the fish instantly.Then you can take a drink to, just remember what it did to the fish befour you take the next big drink. Now jigging for snapper is a way to get some tasty dinner on the table. Drop a led head jig to the bottom and when you feel it hit real it back a few feet and pull it up and down the length of the rod and drop it back down up and down letting it sink the five or six foot length. This has a way of making bottom feeders (no not your attourney) the fish come up off the bottom after it. You can tip the hook with shrimp or what ever you have for a little more attraction.
