Sport Fishing Tips of the Virgin Islands

Plus Info on the Infamous North Drop!


The Virgin Islands: The bucket list destination for sport fishermen everywhere. With 24 sport fishing records set, the V.I. boasts an impeccable haven for fishing among the limitless rocks, ledges, reefs, shipwrecks, and more. Not to mention, the fish in this area will put up a mighty fight.

If you havenít started planning your trip to St. Thomas for the upcoming Memorial Weekend Fishing Tournament, now is the time. Hosted by the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club, the Anegada Memorial Weekend Tournament starts May 27th. So to all who appreciate the challenge and relaxation of saltwater game fishing, read on for the best fishing facts and tips of the Virgin Islands:

How did the Virgin Islands become known as the Blue Marlin Capital?

In the early 60ís, big-game pioneers discovered fantastic blue marlin fishing at the North Drop, making it the legendary spot it is today.

Whatís the secret behind the North Drop?

The North Drop consists of a super deep part of the Puerto Rican Trench. In fact, in less than a quarter of a mile space, the deepest part plummets from 200 to more than 2,000 feet, making it the second deepest trench on earth. Itís a perfect holding place for hordes of bait that attract migrating marlin and other large predators.

How can I be sure of a good catch?

Youíre pretty much guaranteed a blue marlin at the North Drop any time.

Pro Tip: Try fishing before and after the full moons of summer for the ultimate results.

ē Other types of fish that abound in the Virgin Islands include: Blackfin Tuna, White Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, and Sailfish.

How do I get to the North Drop and other Virgin Islands hotspots?

Head out just off the eastern end of St. Thomas. A good St. Thomas boat charter will take you there, and to other locally-known fishing spots. Use your charter to explore deep sea fishing, inshore fishing, or both.

Pro Tip: Look for a native boat captain whoís sure to know the best, most surefire fishing spots.
