Fishing Gear Rentals, Tortola BVI
Here in the bountiful waters of the British Virgin Islands, with our quality rod and tackle rentals, you have a very good chance of catching your dinner! Fish while you sail! Drag a line from the back of your boat and catch surface feeding fish like mahi-mahi, kingfish, tuna and mackerel. Sushi for supper? Delicious!
NB – Know your fish! Be aware that many predatory reef fish in the BVI have Ciguatera poisoning which can give you nasty food poisoning. If you want to catch and eat a fish, avoid barracuda, snapper, jacks, triggerfish and parrotfish.
