(SNO) – The world’s largest website for booking fishing charters, FishingBooker (https://fishingbooker.com/), has named Castries among the 12 best fishing spots in the Caribbean for 2020.
The island’s capital made it to the list with the likes Montego Bay, Jamaica; Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; and Noord, Aruba.
The list was based on a number of factors, such as user reviews, quality of fishing, and overall experience.
The website pointed out that from bustling cruise ports, to its proximity to serene beaches, Castries is the vacation spot that dreams are made of.
The waters of Saint Lucia have often been praised as some of the most populated fishing grounds in all of the Caribbean, with year-round Billfish and Tuna tags slowly backing that up.
Being of a volcanic descent, the island has an added advantage of its pelagic drop-off lying a mere two miles from the coastline, meaning that the deep sea bite is on in less than 20 minutes.
White Marlin is the most sought after catch among locals, but if anglers would rather troll for Wahoo or break a few Dorado schools on light tackle, there’s absolutely nothing stopping them.
The full list of locations (in no particular order) is below:
-Castries, Saint Lucia
-Montego Bay, Jamaica
-Buccoo Point, Trinidad and Tobago
-St. Michael, Barbados
-Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
-Fajardo, Puerto Rico
-St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands
-Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
-Jolly Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda
