Fishing Charters on St. John

Want to go fishing while on St. John? Our core business are day trips to the BVIs but both our captains love to fish and happily share their passion with you and after all our boat’s name is “Wahoo Wa”. The most popular fish to catch on a St. John fishing charter are Mahi and blackfin or yellowfin Tuna but you can also find Wahoo, Marlin, Kingfish and Snappers.

Our 32 FS Regulator is fully equipped for fishing. Across the back of the leaning post is a faucet, prep well, and stored Plano tackle boxes, 130-quart bait box to port and a 40-gallon livewell. We have some nice rods and lures on board, Penn 30’s/50’s and 80’s, all on roller guided rods. From the small snappers to the mighy blue Marlin we have the gear and experience to put you on some fish and We can take you out for a full day or half day fishing or you can mix it up with sight seeing and do the half day fishing half day snorkeling trip. All prices include captain, fuel, rods and bait and the captain will clean fish for you so that you can have a nice dinner.

Below are our favorite photos from Fishing on St. John.

A big Wahoo on Wahoo Wa

Wondering what Captains do on their day off? It looked a bit rainy on the morning of May 2nd so our guests cancelled their Jost van Dyke Day Trip. Captain Steve and Captain Marty went out on our 32 FS Regulator “Wahoo Wa” and within 2 hours caught a huge Wahoo that was about 60-80 lbs and taller than Capain Steve. Check out the photo below.

Half day snorkeling half day fishing charter

If you would like to do some fishing while on St. John without going on a hard core full day fishing charter, this trip might be for you.

We will first head to Norman Island where you can snorkel the Indians, Caves or Aquarium, then you can have lunch at Pirate’s or The Club and then we take a route South of St. John on the way back (we can start fishing as soon as we hit USVI waters.
We take a maximum of 6 people on this charter.

Snorkeling and Lunch at Norman Island
