- Center Console Boat – Refers to a common and popular style of boat. The helm/console is located in the center of the boat with an area available to walk around either side of the helm from the bow to the stern. The helm/console is where all the controls are located, including steering and electronic equipment. There is a T-Top cover to provide some relief from the sun and rain and a small private bathroom inside of the console.
- Inshore – Inshore fishing refers to fishing around the islands, mostly using the islands as protection from weather and sea conditions. Inshore trips focus on catching smaller fish normally found on coral reefs or larger predator fish like King Fish (Mackerel), Barracuda, or Sharks. Trolling, bottom fishing, and using live bait. This is a good choice for fishing with young children.
- North Drop – Approximately 18 miles to the North of St Thomas/St John the Shelf ends and the depth drops from a couple hundred feet to 1000’s of feet of depth.
- Offshore – As long as sea conditions allow, offshore fishing is usually the most exciting style of fishing. Offshore fishing refers to fishing along one of our two “drop offs” which include the South Drop or the North Drop. Along the drop off, the depth usually goes from about 100-200 feet to a sudden drop off to thousands of feet of water. This style of fishing focuses on catching larger pelagic fish including Marlin, Tuna, Mahi, and Wahoo. Methods used mostly include trolling and using live bait (when available). This is the best choice for those looking for large trophy fish.
- Shelf Area – This refers to the depth right before, or right around, the drop off.
- South Drop – Approximately 6 miles to the South of St Thomas/St John the Shelf ends and the depth drops from a couple hundred feet to thousands of feet of depth.
