Game Fishing . . . dreams are made of this

Game Fishing is the ultimate white knuckle ride for any angler, especially in St. Lucia and the surrounding Caribbean islands, where big fish abound. Catching Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Dorado, Kingfish, Wahoo and Barracuda is just another day in the office for Captain Tom and the Exodus crew. At the time of publication Exodus Boat Charters’ largest catch is an enormous 550lb Blue Marlin and the record  on a Half Day Charter was 6 Blue Marlin releases.

Captain Tom and the Exodus crew are no stranger to placing in St. Lucia Game Fishing Tournaments, hardly surprising with so many years of experience! Exodus Boat Charters finished first in the 2007 annual St. Lucia Billfish Tournament. In 2011 Exodus won the ‘Best Local Boat’ title and in 2011 took second place in the overall St. Lucia Billfish Tournament with a total of four Blue Marlin and three Sailfish… all caught and released. In 2012  Captain Tom also took part at the IGFA Offshore World Championship in Mexico where he and his “Team St. Lucia” became 9th in the overall tournament. Captain Tom and some of the Exodus Team have also fished tournaments in the Caribbean such as in Grenada, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago and Martinique.

“Catch and Release ensures there is enough fish returned for future generations. It’s important that our experienced crew ensure the fish return to fight another day,” says Captain Tom. Catching a large fish is a team sport so you are never on your own. “It was on a family charter when we hooked into the 550lb Blue Marlin. The father was first to play the fish, then the son had a go and finally it came down to me,” said Captain Tom. “You obviously need someone to steer the boat and a boat hand who is going to get to grips with these monsters, it’s a real team effort.”

A well-trained crew is a must and Exodus Boat Charters has no shortage of staff or boats. Exodus has a fleet of five craft including a 35ft Cabo Express as well as a 36ft Luhrs Open Express, both with inboard diesel engines. Both boats are state of the art and are equipped with GPS, fish finder, ergonomic fighting chair, waist belt, harness and 50’ and 80’ Shimano rods and reels. Baits include Ballyhoo coupled with an impressive variety of artificial baits and lures.

Exodus Boat Charters operates from IGY Rodney Bay Marina in the north of the beautiful island of Saint Lucia, but pick-ups can be arranged from your St. Lucia hotel as long as suitable notice is given. For pricing please contact us via our contact form or e-mail us at info@exodusstlucia.com.
