Yachting's Ultimate Fishing Guide
Venezuela Although Venezuala is a hot button for controversy, thanks to the country's president, it's still a heck of a place to raise fish. If you're looking for the elusive grand slam-catching three species in one day-you may want to table your politics for a few days. Strong currents converge offshore attracting a variety of species, including blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, wahoo, and swordfish.

He's recently returned and is one the area's experts in fishing the La Guaira Bank.
