THE FISHING GROUNDS
We have over 400 feet of water within three quarters of a mile of the shore, so very little time is lost steaming to distant waters, the 1,500 feet contour is as close as 3 miles! We have one major offshore structure which rises from over 600 feet to 140 feet which provides most species and is only 15 minutes from port. We fish mainly the south and west coasts as these have deep structure close inshore. The West Coast is always protected from the prevailing easterly trade winds and is ideal for those with poor sea legs.
Most of our fishing is trolling using outriggers and down riggers with well tried and tested lures incorporating dead baits, we sometimes drift with live baits. Reef fishing can be arranged but we do require prior notice to arrange bait and special anchors.
We use short, stand up rods, which allow you to handle big fish easily, lines are 50 to 80 lbs and we have just re-equipped with Penn Senators graphite reels. We use wind on leaders so you can play a big fish right to the boat.
FISH 'N' SWIM
Fish 'n' swim - 5 hour charters give 21/2 hours fishing along the sheltered west coast, then 11/2 snorkelling and swimming with the turtles, then another hours fishing back to port.
Please note that the catch belongs to the boat. However, on request, we are happy to share some of the catch and the captain can provide fillets of fish for a meal.
Guided Shore fishing for Bonefish in Barbados
One of the world’s great game fish - the Bonefish - famed for scorching fast runs when hooked and usually fished for on the shallow water flats of the Bahamas, Bermuda or the Florida Keys - inhabits most of our shoreline. Not being edible, the Bonefish is not fished for commercially so a good stock of fish roam the spectacular East coast beaches where we fish. Fishing is always on a rising tide up to high tide which of course changes daily and dictates the time we fish. Barbados Bonefishing is unique because instead of the usually fly fishing from a boat on the flats, we cast from the beach, catching the fish in the surf.
