Deep Sea Fishing
Full or half day deep sea fishing charters are the best way to try and "catch the big one" because the large charter boats can easily reach the deeper waters of the Gulf Stream. It usually takes an hour or two for most boats to reach the popular deep sea fishing spots. Charter boat rates are approximately $1000 per boat for a half day (four hours), $1200 for six hours and $1400 to $1800 for a full day (eight hours). Most deep sea fishing involves trolling, however, when the Yellowfin Tuna are running the boats will often stop to chum and drop lines.
Deep sea fishing trips can be arranged for you by contacting the resort's Front Desk. Pompano has several top notch deep sea boats that they regularly recommend. While some charter boats operate year round, the best deep sea fishing is from May to November (when the water is warmer). All charter boats are skippered by licensed captains who are experienced in Bermuda's waters. Their boats are equipped with all the rods, fishing tackle and bait that you'll need, electronic communication equipment, life-saving gear and toilet facilities. You supply your own refreshments (snacks and beverages).
Types of fish that are commonly caught on deep sea fishing trips are: Wahoo, Amberjack, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Atlantic Sailfish, Black Fin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Little Tunny and Rainbow Runner.
