Surf Fishing

Jump to last reply

What is the surf fishing like on St Kitts?

We intend to stay at Island Paradise and we will have a car.

Any experiences to share? Any fish? Is it permitted? Licenses required?

Is the Atlantic or Caribbean side the best?

Or should we forget surf fishing?

    Hey Bob,

    Fishing is fun on St. Kitts. We spent many days on our vacation doing just that. Licenses are not required.

    We have also stayed at Island Paradise; great place and ocean front. IP is on the Atlantic beach, which is quite (very) rough at times. You can walk straight out to the beach and walk the beach to the right. When you get closer to the rocks, start your fishing.

    Another excellent choice is to leave IP in the front, and walk left about 6 minutes down the street to in front of the Timothy Beach Resort, which is on the calm waters of the Caribbean. To the left of the resort is a hill. Lots of fish in there to choose from. We caught mahi-mahi and barracuda to name a few.

    You can leave IP and go up over the big hill towards the southeast peninsula. Once you go around the hill and start heading down, you can walk left down a path and fish at North Friar's Bay. It is a hike down there, but well worth it. We saw a sea turtles tracks and nest when we were there. Directly across from there is South Friar's Bay, best place to snorkel on the island in our opinion. We spent endless hours there.

    You can also try your hand at fishing in front of the Golden Lemon which is on the total opposite side of the island. It is where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean and is a sight to see. We never fished there, but it is worth a shot I imagine and could prove to be some good fishing.

    Bring you own poles if you can; we did as well as our own snorkel gear.

    When it comes to fishing, my husband and I are big fishermen and had a ball on St. Kitts. Nevis, we were not impressed with at all fishing-wise.

    Please feel free to email me if you would like to know more about fishing and even a name of a couple boats you can go out on if you wish.
