Bonefishman,

There are many places that one can DYI on Aitutaki. One can rent kayaks or small row boats to go to the small islands where the best flats are. There is a pretty good flat and channel near the center of town where the shipping dock is. It was quite windy so I ended up mostly fishing with the guide who came at a very reasonable price. As for places to stay there are pretty good water front bungalows for about $70.00 US/day. I think there might be some cheaper "backpacker" places as well check the Lonely Planet Guide or similar. I saw a few people campling on church property but I am not sure what the deal was. There are lots of churches on the Cooks due to invasion of missionaries including 7th Day Adventists, Mormons, Jahovas, Catholics, Baihai's. Due to the prevalence of religion nothing is open or happens on Sundays FYI.
