Photo taken during the 1st Siargao Game Fishing Tournament with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo opened the competition by flinging a baited fishing hook tied by line to a fishing rod into the Siargao Island waters.

Notes

Probably the most popular active sport in General Luna, it’s remarkably relaxing, restorative and healthful. From Patrick’s Beach Bar & Restaurant overlooking Guyam and Dako Islands you can watch the fishermen from dawn to dusk, the clouds and the waves in the day or the moon at night. It’s up to you if you just sit and think or just sit. The best hangout by far is Patrick’s Beach Bar & Restaurant where you can get spoiled with the best cocktail blends: Beach Streakier, Surf breaker, Sun Chaser, Mermaid’s Lover and the Habal-Habal Splash.

This study reveals some very interesting characteristics of the anglers that you may meet in Cabo on your next visit. Mr. Ditton and his colleagues have many other recent studies which should be of great interest to anglers.
