On any given night in Havana, dozens of men can be found balloon fishing along the Havana seawall, using their homemade floats to carry their lines as far as 275 metres into the coastal waters, where they also serve to keep the bait high in the water and to increase the lines resistance against the pull of a bonito or red snapper. No one can cast the line that far by hand, said Ivan Muno, 56, who was fishing alongside Rosello. Condoms blow life into hunt for big snapper HAVANA: Juan Luis Rosello sat for three hours on the Malecon as the wind blew in from the Florida Straits, pushing the waves hard against the seawall of Havanas coastal boulevard. As darkness settled and the wind switched direction, Rosello pulled four condoms from a satchel and began to blow them up. When the contraceptives were the size of balloons, the 47-year-old cafeteria worker tied them together by their ends, attached them to the end of a baited fishing line and set them floating on the tide until they reached the end of his 225-metre line. After six decades under US embargo and Soviet-inspired central planning, Cubans have become masters at finding ingenious solutions with extremely limited resources. Few are as creative as what Havanas fishermen call balloon fishing, a technique em For four more hours, he sat silently as the dark sea pounded the rocks below the seawall, algae flashing green in the waves beneath an enormous creamy moon, the sounds of the city muffled by the wind and water. By midnight, he was heading home without a catch, but planning to return soon. This is the most effective way to fish, Rosello said. Someone got this great idea and I can be here all night with the balloons out. Cuba has been renowned for its fishing at least since the days of Ernest Hemingway, and foreigners by the thousands come each year to fish in waters largely protected by Cubas lack of development. Much of Cubas coastline remains free of the large-scale building that has damaged ecosystems in the rest of the Caribbean. The islands industrial fishing fleet was devastated by the fall of the Soviet Union.
