We were picked up punctually from our guest house and delivered to the boat at the Careenage.  There, we were met by Alan and he introduced us to Omar and Vincent. We cruised up the West Coast trolling for fish. We caught a large Wahoo which put up a really good fight! We were hoping for barracuda (it was on our menu list), and though we had several bites, they decided not to get hooked. However, the Wahoo made up for it.

Lizard was a great crew member, right on top of things when needed. He and Omar were well coordinated when re-baiting lines or assisting us bringing in the Wahoo. While the boat is older, it performed well and did the job (we were there to fish, not be on a cruise ship).  Snacks and drinks were in ample supply and on our return Omar did an exceptional job in filleting the Wahoo (which we took back and enjoyed for dinner the next two nights). 

All in all, well worth the cost and experience of fishing for game fish. We will use IOU again, for sure.

A lovely mornings trolling up and down the coast. Captain Omar and crew man Steve did their best to find us some fish. But it was a quiet day and the fish weren’t there. That’s fishing!!

Hi David, thanks for fishing with us. Sorry about the lack of fish but days like that happen even in the midst of prime fishing season such as now. No other boats seem to have had much luck that day either - the fish were hiding. I hope you enjoy your time in Barbados and we see you again one day.
