There’s nothing like starting off the new year thinking: where should I travel next?, and if you are like us and love sport fishing, we’re sure you don’t want to miss the opportunity to go out on a sport fishing trip in another part of the world , so just to give you a little help with your planning, we’ve created the top 5 best fishing spots from all around the world, so you can decide where to go next:
At Belize you will find pristine extensive flats where you can find large schools of fish like bonefish, permit and tarpon. Belize is approximately two hours by plane from the southeastern U.S. cities, and guess what? it’s the only country in Central America where they speak English as their primary language, so, you only have to worry about fishing!
2. Bermuda Islands
If you’re after Monster Marlin, this is the spot to go to. Bermuda has won eight times in 27 years the World Cup Blue Marlin Championship, beating the whole world on it, as no other country has won it that many times. With a placid sub tropical climate and great sport fishing, we’re sure you’ll enjoy from this sport fishing travel destination.
3. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
At Cabo San Lucas you can catch incredible size fish like marlin, sails, wahoo and dorado at just a couple of miles off shore (in most places you have to run from 20 to 40 miles). At Cabo you can find open-ocean species at just a 10 miles from the shore, plus, you can fish all year round!
4. The Florida Keys, USA
The Florida Keys are the sport fishing destination by excellence. This spot is often on every angler’s fishing bucket list. The Keys have all the appropriate climate elements, water temperature, and oceanic bottom composition to attract a wide array of incredible species and some of them are found nowhere else in the U.S. Plus, it’s home of the Fantastic II, a the best sport fishing charter in the Florida Keys! (and you don’t have to travel that far!)
5. Canary Islands, Spain
These tiny Spanish archipelago is located on the southwest coast of Morocco. It’s climate is subtropical and offer long warm summers and warm winters as well. At the Canaries you can catch blue marlin, wahoo, tuna, shark and dolphin, among other species.
All of these places are amazing if you want to travel abroad and experience sport fishing in a different country and culture, but if you don’t want to travel that far but still want to experience one of the best sport fishing spots in the world, give us a call. The Fantastic II team and Captain Justin Hopper are always happy to help!
