Barbados gets high fishing ranking

BARBADOS IS GAINING a reputation among the region’s most popular sports fishing destinations.

Recently, FishingBooker website ranked the island tenth in the Americas for popular fishing destinations.

“The country is well known for its warm welcome and delicious food and drinks. It’s also one of the safest countries in the Caribbean, letting you really relax and drink it all in – and we’re not just talking about the cocktails,” it added.

“Don’t get too relaxed, because you’ve got the fight of your life ahead of you. Head offshore and you’ll find blue and white marlin, sailfish, and maybe even spearfish. Barbados’ signature species is wahoo, which you can reliably catch even on a half-day trip.”

Mexico boasts three of the ten spots in Cabo San Lucas, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta at one, two and four, respectively.

Jaco in Costa Rica is third, while Punta Cana (Dominican Republic), Nassau (The Bahamas), George Town (Cayman Islands), Oranjestad (Aruba) and San Juan in Puerto Rico take spots five to nine.

President of the Barbados Game Fishing Association, Ralph White, said they had no affiliation with FishingBooker, which was a website for fishing enthusiasts to book holidays. (SAT)
