Experience of a lifetime, Heading back for more!
I’ve fished around the world on vacation. Captain Rob and crew are 1st rate. I’ve fished on the Mixed Bag on several different trips to St John and can’t wait for my next trip. Whether it’s live lining live bait for Black-fin Tuna, Wahoo, Rainbows or Mahi, or hunting the elusive Blue Marlin these guys do it better than most. I’ve caught them all on this boat. This is serious blue water fishing only miles from a fantastic resort.
That being said, be flexible, be prepared and let them know what your intentions are and the Captain and crew will make it happen. If your serious about this kind of fishing and want to add it to a visit a world class resort then Mixed Bag is it! Seasons mean everything in this industry so do yourself a favor and read up on what’s biting at the time of your visit in your favorite fishing magazine. I bagged 2 450lb+ Blue’s the last trip, can’t wait for the next one! – Chris S – Redondo Beach, California

All trips are custom designed to fit the desires and schedule of the angler. The types of trips offered range from inshore to offshore.
The Virgin Islands are perched at the edge of the six mile deep Puerto Rico Trench, an area known for having some of the best game fishing in the world. Two famous offshore fishing areas in the Virgin Islands are the North Drop and the South Drop. The North Drop, about 20 miles north of St. Thomas, is unparallelled for its blue marlin fishing. It is said to produce more blue marlin bites per boat than any other place in the world.
Although Marlin fishing is fine year round in St. Thomas, in the most optimum months of May to October it is not unusual to have five, six, seven even ten strikes every day.
Other offshore gamefish around St. Thomas include sailfish, wahoo, kingfish, yellowfin and blackfin tuna, and dolphin (mahi mahi). The South Drop, 8 miles south of St. Thomas, can reach depths of 12,000 feet; its warmer Caribbean Sea waters are the perfect fishing location for dolphin (mahi-mahi), sailfish, kingfish, and wahoo.
Inshore game fish include barracuda, bonefish, kingfish, mackerel, snook and tarpon. There are lots of tarpon around the islands and your catch will generally average around 25 pounds, however catching a 40 or 50 pounder is not unlikely!
