OFFSHORE FISHING
The Virgin Islands are perched at the edge of the six mile deep Puerto Rico Trench, an area that is known for having some of the hardiest game fish in the world. Two well known offshore fishing areas in the Virgin Islands are the North Drop and the South Drop. The North Drop, about 20 miles north of St. Thomas, is famed for marlin fishing. It is said to produce more blue marlin bites per boat than any other place in the world. It is not unusual to have five, six, seven even ten strikes every day during the months of May to October. Although these months are the “best” time for fishing marlin they can be caught all year round.

Marlin are not the only fish you will be catching. Below is a table about some of our other Deep Sea sportfish we are catching.

INSHORE FISHING

Our Inshore fishing usually occurs anywhere from 1 to 5 miles offshore. Inshore sport fish include barracuda, bonefish, kingfish, mackerel, snook and tarpon. There are a lot of tarpon around the islands and your catch of one will generally average around 25 pounds, however catching a 40 or 50 pounder is not unlikely! Snook are nocturnal eaters so evening fishing is your best bet for reeling them in.
