Exotic fishing

In October 2016, I discovered exotic fishing during a trip to Guadeloupe and today I invite you to discover this incredible fishing to live unforgettable moments.

Fishing in Guadeloupe

Target fish

Snook, baby tarpon and bone fish.

Fishing locations

All fish are caught on sight … Snooks and baby tarpons are hidden in the roots of mangroves. Bone fish are present on flats and more particularly in seagrass beds.


The boat is a skiff with 17 cm of draft allowing discreet approaches in a minimum of water. The fishing gear consists of Marryat bone fish (9 ′ # 8) and Marryat tarpon (9 ′ # 9) rods. Double traction compulsory! Long-sleeved outfit required with cap, sunglasses, face protector, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, etc.


For snook and tarpon, fishing is done with streamers of various colors. For bonefish: shrimp imitations such as crazy charlie style.

A typical day

The day starts at 4:30 am with a solid breakfast. The skiff is launched at the Baie Mahault harbor around 5:30 a.m. Depending on the desired fish, the navigation takes around 15 to 20 minutes. All species can be searched in the same day. At noon, it’s a picnic with your feet in the water. The day ends around 2 p.m. / 3 p.m. for a well-deserved nap
