You are allowed to fish in the lagoon but after viewing and feeding the fish, one is reluctant to throw out the fishing lines.
The fish really start to trust you.........anyway, we had more fun just throwing in some bread to them. Mostly, the sucker fish will hang around the boats looking for some tucker.
