later is better

I've made about 6 trips to the caribbean now and I have found that the later you go, the safer it is. Wind is a big problem early in the year, and cold fronts can push the fish out into deeper water. the farther south you go, the less of a factor this may be. I was completely blown out in the southernmost Yucatan in mid-April one year, and was only able to fish about half of the time in early May in northern Belize

Also for the type of fishing that I like to do, the best starts in June in Baja

If I had to go some place early in the year, I would consider Christmas Island. However that is about $2800 plus tips per week after you get to Hawaii
