For anglers looking to combine their fishing adventure with a wonderful island getaway, FishingBooker, the world’s largest website for booking fishing charters, has revealed its list of the 12 fishing spots in the Caribbean that are the best for 2020, and Antigua’s Jolly Harbour is one of them. The list was based on a number of factors, such as user reviews, quality of fishing, and overall experience.
Secluded, powdery beaches, bustling coral reefs, and friendly locals are what make the island of Antigua a paradise of its own. The large marina development of Jolly Harbor is about a 10-mile journey south of the city of St. John’s. Ashore in Jolly harbour are a wide variety of shops, restaurants and a complex of condominium homes. Some of the fish you can catch here during the entire year are Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo, while Blue Marlin, and Kingfish are best targeted during the summer months.
