    Guys, did you check out the older threads on this? Not sure if the info is still current but the first post in this thread (below) gives the email of someone who will know more about this. Maybe give him a try and see if he has more info for you:

    If you are interested in fishing in the local water, the link Dave_Hounddriver is pretty good info. I been in Santa Catalina a few times and been out with Joven name of boatsman there. He is a nice guy and has the knowledge to help you, size of hooks, what kind of leader to use like that. I have small banka, bought it from Mike Alano the fishing guide mentioned of Davy200, when he had limited time for fishing, hard working guy. I get a lot of help and advise from him, but we need all get our own experience on the water.
    I don't come out that much with my boat, but enjoy when it happen, landscape much more beautiful from seaside. In another thred on this site, I offered someone going fishing with me, I live in Bacong, go Daro to pick up, no one there, get a text after few hours, arhh forget our appointment lol, I feel stupid. I meet the people, like them and we make appointment, after that I think no more. I like go out alone and are not afraid tell friends, today I want go out alone, clear my mind, but sometimes nice with a fishing buddy and someone to share the experiences with. Sometimes you meet turtles and dolphins, I always feel it's fantastic to watch life at sea. Look at Mike Alanos Youtube channel, it's great and a lot of info. I have fishfinder (great help) with GPS and rodholders like that, designed for fishing with rod and reel. It's cheap to built or buy a banka and great pleasure. If you are interested in fishing with me or go to Santa Catalina together I'm openmined, have a car, there is around 75 km from Dumaguete. I can also help you contact boatsman, I'm retired and enjoy life, Mike Alano is very helpful but busy built a new shop in Dumaguete and other things, I try, even it's hard lol, not to disturb him too much. I get info from him 2 days ago about fishing snakehead in Mabinay, will go there soon. Of course, I will share info with you, just ask here or send PM, cheers

    Do you live in Bantayan island? I'm sure there more than one place with that name, the place you live is in Dumaguete area?
