you can shore fish, when i first started going over i use to keep 12 foot surf rods there. I haven't done it for a few years now so i couldn't tell you whats currently being caught or how good the fishing is right now. as far as tackle goes there is a place in St Johns at the Hertiage Quay shopping area that sells fishing gear, it's on the second floor over the jewelry store, enjoy

Hi Rick

There is some good shore fishing, depending where you're based. Tarpon, snapper and barracuda, mostly. Have a look in the Caribbean forum of WorldSeaFishing.com where there have been several similar queries.

Jolly Harbour has plenty of tarpon and some snook. You can also get some good light tackle action in Cades Bay.

You might want to ask this question over at www.antiguaforums.com - there are a couple of keen fishermen there who might be able to point you in the right direction!
