Fun fact: one out of our two family sports is fishing. Sad fact: I suck at it HAHA. Anyways, my dad decided to go bottom line fishing during our stay in El Nido. We’ve never done this type of fishing before and it was different from anything i’ve experienced. Surprise, surprise: Ysabela (my aunt) and I caught nothing. But the rest of my family did! I want to say that bottom line fishing is harder than fishing with rods, but i’m not completely sure.. If you’re looking for something different, this is something you should definitely check out. After all, fishing in open waters doesn’t happen often.
But El Nido is really known for snorkeling and diving. As corny as it sounds, life under the sea is a different world. We’ve seen many fishes, corals, clams and the like. Sadly, we didn’t encounter any turtles or sharks but how cool would that be!
One divers thing that I learned is that there are less things to see the second time around. This is true because we stayed at Miniloc three years ago but when we went this time, there weren’t as much species. On a more positive note, we could still swim with the jack fishes. They were huge and really fast when it was feeding time. My mom told me that as the deeper you go, the more colorful it gets. I would definitely like to see that. Thinking of snorkeling or diving in El Nido? Go for it.
