Deep Sea Fishing on St. Kitts

The waters off St. Kitts abound with fish, including tuna, wahoo, dorado, kingfish, barracuda, shark, snapper, and mahi mahi. The creation of man-made reefs by placing old car bodies, stripped of hazardous materials, has proven to be effective at increasing fish stocks and providing fisherman with known fishing grounds. Another technique used with increasing success is the building and anchoring of FADS (fish aggregating devices). These raft-like structures made from palm fronds and wooden pallets provide shade and shelter for small fish in specific areas. They are effective at attracting larger bill fish and mahi mahi, which feed on the smaller fish.

Nearby fishing grounds include the Monkey Shoals and Brimstone Shallows, while full day charters visit the Statia channel, or the grounds south of Nevis.
