IOU Fishing Charters – Barbados
IOU Fishing Charters – Barbados
If you want great offshore fishing without traveling hours to get on the fish, then IOU Fishing Charters Barbados has the perfect solution for you. Come fish with them, and be in deep waters within minutes!
This makes the fishing incredible, allowing you to target big game species throughout the year. From December to April you can target Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna and many more. If you want to just catch Marlin, be sure to book from February to April.
You will spend the day on a 36’ custom built boat. This beautifully maintained boat has a large sundeck and plenty of seating in the cockpit and on the flybridge. The spacious cockpit has a sun awning, so whether you want to be in or out the sun they’ve got you covered.
You will mostly be trolling on these trips, but IOU Fishing Charters Barbados encourage you to be hands-on, whether that’s participating in re-baiting the line or even steering the ship!
The waters in Barbados are fantastic for fishing. Within 1 mile of shore the waters reach depths of 400’, and and can run as deep as 1,500’ just 3 miles out. A short 15-minute ride will see you fishing structures that allow for incredible fishing. If you are still finding your sea legs, let the captain know, and he will take you to the West Coast where the winds are less fierce.
Whatever your level of experience, the crew can cater each trip for you. You will use short stand up rods which allow you to handle big fish easily. They also have brand new Penn Senator graphite reels – you can rest assured that your gear won’t let you down when reeling in your trophy fish.
Sandwiches are provided on the 6 and 8-hour trips, and snacks on the 4-hour trip. Plenty of drinks are available, so you don’t need to worry about a thing!
Come fish with IOU Fishing Charters Barbados for an awesome fishing adventure you won’t forget in a hurry!

Enjoyed our hail-day fishing charter with IOU. We are not experienced fishermen, but my wife and younger daughter landed wahoo. Dinner with fish caught two hours earlier was awesome. The captain and crew were efficient and friendly. All in all, a fine experience.

I booked this fishing trip knowing it was the poorest part of the season for catching fish, so I didn’t really expect to catch anything. Turns out, we were the only boat out that morning that did catch something. We caught a Barracuda that fed 5 of us that night. I’m sure during the good part of the season we would have been catching our fill of fish.
Capt. Omar was friendly, and explained how we would fish for the day. He and his #1 were about their business at hand, and were not trying to entertain us. . . which is a good thing. The #1 kept the bait in the water, even in the driving rain squalls. Not much to do during the down time which we had plenty of, but I did go up to the bridge and chat with the Capt. for a while. He answered a lot of my questions about the boat, fishing and the island. The boat was an older boat, but clean and well equipped. Capt. Omar cleaned and de-boned our Barracuda, and we were on our way with the main course for dinner. The cab was on time to pick us up at our villa, and he was there on time to take us back.
I paid for a 4 hour trip, and got a 4 hour trip with EVERY opportunity for fish to bite the hook. Though I wasn’t expecting much because of the off-season fishing, I was excited to bring home dinner.
The ONLY negative thing I could say, was there was no Safety Briefing. No info on where life vests were, or any emergency procedures. I felt as we were in good hands, and was not worried. But, before any trip like that, I feel there should be a safety briefing.
Of all the boats I saw going out, I wouldn’t want to be on another one. I HIGHLY recommend IOU Fishing with Capt. Omar. I’m sure I got my money’s worth! ! !
