Local Fishing Experience
Peter, a young licensed fisherman from the village of Marigot, runs this activity. Not the usual deep-sea fishing on a big yacht. Instead, it’s all about the fun of sport fishing the real St. Lucia way, on a comfy small boat with an expert local fisherman to show you the water and help you make some great catches.
He usually try bottom fishing or trolling in parties of two to four persons along the island coast, just a short distance from Marigot Bay. Fishing gear and tackle are provided. Popular catches include jack, tuna, dorado, barracuda, mahi-mahi, red snapper and grouper weighing anywhere from one to 10 pounds – 15 pounds if you’re lucky!
Peter can go out any day of the week. Mornings (7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.) or late afternoons (3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) are suggested. Please reserve at least 24 hours in advance. Drinks are available for sale on board, but you can bring your own.
Deep Sea Fishing
Come along and do battle with the big one with Captain Chris Hackshaw and his experienced and friendly fishing team. Chris’s Grand father started charter fishing around the beautiful and very productive waters of St. Lucia over forty years ago and subsequently passed on a wealth of knowledge. Presently Chris’s cousin has the St. Lucia Blue Marlin record of 707 pounds caught at one of our International Bill fishing tournaments.
They presently operate three sport fishing vessels: a Customized 38’ Bertram Special “Sea Hunter” powered with twin Detroit Diesels capable of speeds to 25 kts, a 31’ Bertram Bahia Mar ” Blue Boy” powered with twin Perkins 275 h.p. Diesels capable of 31 kts and a 32’ Formula “Miss-T” powered with twin 250 h.p. Perkins Diesels capable of 24 kts.
All their boats are equipped with Fish-Finders, GPS systems, Penn International and Shimano Reels and a wide variety of lures for a number of different species of game fish, the Sea Hunter is also equipped with Radar, auto pilot, fridge, stove, freezer, and is air conditioned in the cabin. All three vessels are fitted with coast guard approved safety equipment.
There are a wide variety of game fish around the island with the more common being Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, King Fish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Dorado, Mackerel and Barracuda. Hackshaw Boat Charters strongly believe in the conservation of St. Lucia’s fish stocks and thus practice a strict Tag and release program of all BillFish, with the tag certificate being presented to the angler by the International Gamefishing Fish Association.
Apart from sport fishing charters they also do whale and dolphin watching trips! (453-0553)
