|Weekend getaways are a great opportunity to unwind and escape the daily grind of everyday life. That’s especially true for men faced with the pressures of raising a family and maintaining a career. A fishing trip is an ideal getaway for men who love to fish and need to relieve a little stress. Those passionate about fishing regularly visit their usual fishing grounds. But anglers looking for a variety of exotic catches, as well as relief from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, should consider fishing in the Caribbean.|
The island of Tobago, part of the Caribbean island nation Trinidad and Tobago, provides enchanting, exotic vegetation and the originality of a wildly romantic landscape. The island’s beautiful coastal areas and coral reefs are part of the unique charm of this Caribbean pearl. Here, the warm Gulf and cold Atlantic Ocean currents meet and create a unique underwater world with shimmering schools of fish, a paradise for anglers. The area combines an exciting vacation at one of the most exotic places with the opportunity to catch some of the biggest fish in the world. Further proof of this opportunity are the regular contests in which up to 60 different boats compete with fishermen to find out who wins the most and largest sea creatures.
Tobago’s inhabitants are Caribbean vacationers looking for “the big catch.” The island provides well prepared boats with basic, practical fishing equipment. As soon as everyone on board is ready, the adventure begins. Experienced fishermen know that sometimes a big dose of patience is needed to get the perfect fish on their rods. They have come across shark, marlin, swordfish, tuna and bluefish.
North of Caracas, Los Roques Archipelago is home to the largest marine park in the Caribbean and offers a harmonious home to many sea creatures. Thus, Los Roques also exerts a magical attraction on tourists who like diving or fishing in the Caribbean. Anglers will find their luck here on the coast, because the various fish come up to a few feet in the vicinity of the beach. Various types of fish can be drawn in the waters of Los Roques, including bass, bonefish and bonitos.
