Fiji Tops The World's Best Fishing Spots
Whether you're planning your next big getaway, or you prefer to stay close to home, chances are there is a top fishing spot near you.
The warm tropical waters of Fiji, combined with the stunning island scenery and world-class resorts, make it a top fishing destination for serious and novice anglers alike from around the world. Visitors can hire experienced guides to help them net big game fish including marlin that can weigh up to 363 kgs, tuna, mahimahi, Spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna and giant trevally.
Prince Edward Island/Nova Scotia, Canada
The all-tackle world-record bluefin tuna was 679 kgs and was caught off the Canadian Maritimes in 1979. The fishery is catch-and-release by law, so come for the sport, not the sashimi.
Anglers fishing with poppers along the offshore seamounts of Panama will almost always be rewarded with tuna, mahimahi, wahoo, roosterfish, bluefin trevally, and subera snapper.
Known for its record-breaking blue marlins, visitors to Bermuda can also enjoy world-class resorts, diving and golf when they're not on the water. Anglers can also go after wahoo, yellowfin tuna, and white marlin.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Excellent blue-water fishing can be found just a couple miles offshore from Cabo where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez. Wahoo, sails, dorado, and marlin are all common quarry here.
Fly-in only fishing resorts around the island take anglers into the chilly waters of the North Pacific to land trophy-worthy chinhook, Pacific halibut, and coho salmon.
Crystal clear water and expansive areas of shallows makes the Bahamas an excellent place for flats fishing. Bones, permit and the occasional tarpon are plentiful around the Grand Bahamas flats, Abaco, Andros, and Long Islands.
Head to the states for world-class saltwater fly-fishing along the coastal marshes of Louisiana and Mississippi. Red drum, a favourite game fish for anglers who enjoy fly-fishing, is abundant here, as is black drum and sea trout.
Key West, Florida
Another stateside hotspot, the warm Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico waters surrounding the Florida Keys are home to blue-water, reef and flats fishing. Inshore and offshore fishing opportunities abound and anglers can catch snapper, grouper, wahoo, cobia and everything in between.
