Big Game Lodge

Big Game Lodge invites you for a day of exciting fishing action on the bountiful waters of Trinidad and Tobago! Let Captain Peter De Silva take you out and show you what the offshore fishing is all about. Who knows, maybe you’ll catch your next trophy.

Join Capt. Peter on his 46’ Hatteras sportfisher with twin Yanmar 440 HP engines and head to the most productive spots. The boat can accommodate up to 8 people and have them fishing at the same time. If you’d like to have a breather, there’s an air-conditioned cabin with a seating area, kitchen, and two private toilets. There are 2 private toilets on board, so traveling in full comfort is guaranteed.

When it comes to the fishing gear, you’ll have everything you could possibly need for a successful day on the water. The flybridge will help you spot schools of fish from afar and outriggers and downriggers will extend your fishing reach. Hooked a big one? There’s a fighting chair to help you get it into the boat.

Speaking of your catch, you’ll be on the lookout for all the offshore favorites. Think Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Marlin, and Yellowfin Tuna. Because the waters are so plentiful, chances are, you’ll be reeling in fish after fish during the whole trip.

You’ll be using top-notch Duel, Penn, and Shimano fishing equipment and you’ll have a first mate to help you with everything. After the trip, you can choose what fish you’d like to keep and the crew will have it cleaned, filleted, even cooked for you, if you’d like.

Come fishing with your kids, teach them something new, and have a memorable family outing. Climb aboard with plenty of food and drinks, or let your captain know, and he’ll arrange it for you (for an additional charge).

Book a trip with Big Game Lodge and your thrilling fishing adventure can begin!
