Laurenz knows where the fish live along the reefs and mangroves of Aruba's leeward coast. Within 15 minutes of slipping out of Oranjestad harbor at dawn we were casting surface plugs with light spinning gear. We had quick luck, boating two nice jacks in the first half hour. The bigger of the two fought hard and tested the equipment but... More

I have fished with Laurenz for several years in a row. He always does his best to put you onto the fish. He has top shelf equipment and his boats are beautifully maintained. He is very knowledgeable and I always learn something from him. I have fished both fly and spin with him and have always had a blast. This... More

I'm not a deep sea fisherman - I like calm waters, light tackle, and a group of one or two. I'm experienced but love to learn new techniques as well as learning about the local waters. I fish both fly and spinning and chose to go the spinning route (Salt water fly fishing is a new skill for us Eastern... More

I was asking for a bit of both, fly-fishing for bonefish and some inshore casting w spinning to keep my daughter involved and Laurenz gladly accommodated. His boats are top-notch and in no time we were poling around a nearby flat looking... More

Fishing with Laurenz is a highly recommended treat. He is extremely knowledgeable about his trade as well as the island. I'm horrible luck when it comes to fishing but he still managed to get us plenty of bites and we put a few in the boat. He even gave me a bit of advice on shore fishing on the island... More

My boyfriend and I went on a spin fishing trip in early January. Laurenz is very informative about fishing on the island and a great guide to go with. He was always brining us to new locations and changing up the tackle we used. My boyfriend can't wait to go back and fish with him again!!

Fun morning of fly and spin cast fishing. My son and I caught a couple of Barracuda and a yellow tail Snapper. Good time and excellent host captain. Will do again next time we are there.
