Island Dog - Whaler One

Ocho Rios
Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Island Dog Water Sports is your key to the finest fishing grounds and biggest catches in and around Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Beginners to seasoned anglers, everyone is welcome to join in the adventure of a lifetime.

Come September, and the high seasons begins and then goes through March. But don’t let the season fool you - fishing is great year-round!

The list of your potential catches includes Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Blue and White Marlin, Barracuda, and Kingfish to name a few. Wahoo are also around in good numbers.

Island Dog Water Sports will take you out to the reefs, which are only 10 minutes away from shore. The crew will bait your hooks and you will drop the lines as soon as you reach the fishing grounds. When trolling, only 6 lines will be in the water at a time.

The crew will provide you with the finest tackle by the leading brands, such a Penn International and Shimano. All the fish caught will be evenly split between the anglers and the crew. All trips have a ‘no smoking’ policy.

You will be battling fish aboard the ‘Whaler One’. With her 33’ of excellence, a pair of 250 HP Cummins Diesel engines, and plenty of space for up to 7 anglers, the Whaler One can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

The Whaler One is outfitted with everything you need to make a great catch possible. She is also equipped with a bed, a toilet, and an air-conditioned cabin. All aboard!

I did not become a fisherman. I discovered that I was a fisherman from a tender age when there was nothing to me like catching a fish, so I just continue the life of catching fish until this day. My preferred style of fishing would be trolling with live bait, kite fishing, following weed lines, watching birds, and also watching the waves.
