Deep Sea Fishing
Sport fishing around Tobago is still in its infancy. Certainly, you can charter a boat and spend a few hours through a few days out exploring the local waters on the hunt or your next big catch, but where and when to fish is not as well known by local anglers as elsewhere in the Caribbean.
As local anglers begin to make fishing a more well-known pastime to tourists, they are making a point to learn all they can about fishing sites and schedules. Current experts agree that currently the safest bet for fishing is to stick to rock clusters on the beaches because what they know about deep sea fishing is not yet extensive. This does not mean you can’t charter a boat for some big game fishing, it just means that success is not always a given.
Most local species are nomadic and predatory. You’ll find wrasse, snapper, and parrot fish to be easily caught because they prefer to haunt stable underwater structures. Trolling off-shore, you have the possibility of encountering king fish, marlin sailfish, tuna, wahoo, and mahi-mahi.
