St Thomas Fishing
Anyone can take you fishing, but "our strength is our experience and knowledge" of where the best places are to hunt them down in the USVI & BVI Caribbean waters on any given day.
Whether you are a novice or experienced angler, be assured that deep sea fishing St. Thomas, St. John USVI & BVI aboard Black Pearl will be everything you expected, because the fish can't hide from Capt. Jim.
Whether you are looking for a light tackle trip around the Islands, or Marlin
fishing at our famous North Drop, we can show you a great day of fishing on
board Bluefin II. We've been chartering out of Red Hook, St. Thomas for
the past 30 years and prior to that the Florida Keys.
May through October is our Blue Marlin season; 12-14 days before the full moon, to 2-5 days after, is the most active time in the lunar cycle to fish. That said Captain Eddie caught his biggest marlin at over 800lbs on the dark side of the July moon.
Generally, early in the season, May and June, there will be fewer bites (one to three) they can be big fish (400lbs+) as you move through the summer months the number of bites will pick up, the fish size drops off. By the October moon we see 6-10 bites (or more) a day of 250lbs. fish.
So when is the best time to fish? That depends on what you want to target. The bigger fish are typically early. August is a good mix but busy with tournaments. September and October are great because most of the Florida boats leave for other areas - and the weather is typically beautiful.
Other than marlin, yellowfin tuna are a possibility as are some nice bull mahi-mahi (dolphin).
What about the weather? Early June and July can be breezy, later than this, if there's not a hurricane, you'll find the waters very calm.
November through March is our best time for Wahoo, we will also catch yellowfin tuna, sailfish, barracuda, jacks, blackfin tuna and some mahi-mahi (dolphin). You name it we might catch it this time of the year.
April and May is our mahi-mahi (dolphin) season. When the run starts it can be fast and furious with the schools of mahi running 20-50 pounds. Along with the mahi we can get a good white marlin showing, and in lucky years an early blue marlin bite. You could even hook up a Wahoo or two as well. Springtime can really exciting.
For blue Marlin fishing, the best months are July through August. The
following sport fish are available throughout the year:
