Reef and Deep Sea Fishing Bermuda

Reef fishing, or deep-sea fishing, is how you’ll find “The Big One.” The three major reef systems forming the tip of the extinct volcano that is Bermuda lie at varying distances from the islands. The first, the inner system, runs as close as a half-mile from the shore in some places and stretches outward almost five miles. The second system, the Challenger Bank, lies 17 miles offshore; and the third, the Argus Bank, is more than 25 miles out. Trolling is the most popular method of fishing over the reefs, and catches of snapper, grouper, barracuda and amberjack are common. Just off the reef in deeper waters are wahoo, tuna, dolphin, sailfish and marlin.

Charter boats are available to take you out to the fishing grounds. They come in different sizes, from 28 feet to 55 feet, and are equipped with a variety of tackle with line-test weights from 20 to 130 pounds. Most boats are also fitted with all the modern gadgets for tracking the fish, including depth sounders, sonar, and radar.
