The Pros and Cons of a Jamaican ‘All-Inclusive Beach Resort Vacation’ – Without Fishing!

At Club-Hotel Riu Negril

Well, for decades I’ve listened to other people talk about their ‘all-inclusive-beach vacations’ without ever having experienced one myself but that all changed when we had an excuse to go to Jamaica for a wedding at Club Riu Negril in Jamaica. We (my wife Loretta, and oldest son Tyler- Izaak couldn’t make it.) flew out on my birthday (Nov 22) and returned 8 days later with some great memories under our belts.  Below is my review of the experience highlighting both the pros and cons of our vacation.

September Off On Vacation = Bass Fishing Almost Every Day!

For the last couple of years I have been fortunate to be able to take a month-long vacation in September. Although I love fishin’ all four seasons, this particular month is one I think I like best.  The bass are usually biting big time to fatten up for the winter; weather is typically still beautiful, and the crowds are gone from the waterways I love to fish and the roads to get there!

Catching a Six Pound Deep Water Largemouth

Great Way To Start The Finest Month For Deepwater Largemouth

Saturday of the Labor Day Long wknd is usually far too busy for me on Lake Simcoe, but I hadn't fished largies on my home lake for almost a month so I needed my fix bad. I got an early start and watched the sun peer over the eastern horizon from my Simcoe County vantage point on the west side. I anxiously headed straight for my number one largemouth waypoint. Upon arrival, I tossed my marker and then threw my trusty Rapala Skitter Walk which has accounted for so many big bass on similar early morning excursions. Forty minutes later as the sun brightened and still no fish, I switched rods and picked up another old reliable, a fire tiger colored Rapala DT 16.  Cranking in about 15 feet, I finally landed a 2 pounder and a couple of shorts but before I knew it, another 40 minutes went by without a sniff.
