Go fishing in Jamaica
Written by StephanieK

The waters around Jamaica offer several kinds of fishing due to the varied underwater landscape. Some fish like shallow island edges, while others favor the coral reefs built up over centuries. Off Jamaica, you can experience regions that attract sports fishermen from all over the world. The northern waters offer a chance to catch mahi mahi, blue and white marling, sailfish, tarpon, barracuda, and bonito. In Port Antonio, try Irie Vibes Fishing in Port Antonio, which offers spear and deep sea fishing options; in Negril, visit Captain Phil at Sea Shell charters, which provides a range of tours and deep sea fishing. Sea Shell’s fleet include a glass-bottom boat. Also located in Negril is Stanley’s Deep Sea Fishing run by Capt. Staney Caryalho, who was born and raised there. Fishing includes chiefly offshore trolling on the western point of Jamaica using ballyoo and artificial bat.
