Anyone have info on flats fishing options in Aruba? May be going there in May on family vacation. Wondering about species - bones, permit, tarpon and guides or do it yourself stuff?

Thanks in advance

The above link was posted several weeks ago. Some interesting stuff for the guy looking to wet a line on his own.

I like Aruba - spent a week there working in the power plant 6 or 7 years ago. Best opps. seem to be on the west end, north of the resorts. I've heard bones could be had at the lagoon at Baby Beach on the east end but the wind in your face might be discouraging. Could be some nice scenery though. I believe the rule is you have to have one piece of clothing, but it doesn't matter whether it tops or bottoms.
