IOU Fishing Charters - Shooter

The Wharf Road
Bridgetown, Barbados

IOU Fishing Charters specializes in taking groups offshore in search of big fish and great times. Spend your day aboard the Shooter and head back to the dock with a boatload of fish and some unforgettable memories of your time on the water.

The Shooter is a 46’ Bertram cruiser, with a wide array of fishing equipment and plenty of little luxuries to keep you comfortable on your trip. She is the perfect vessel for taking larger groups offshore, with room for up to 10 guests and a cruising speed of around 20 knots to get you to the best fishing spots in no time.

The boat features a high flybridge to take in the town and the surrounding scenery as you head offshore. Down below deck, her spacious, air-conditioned interior boasts two full bathrooms, two cabins, a galley, and plenty of room to relax in the cool after hard-fought hookups up on deck.

And the Shooter is certainly set up for hard-fought battles! The latest electronics pinpoint your location and sound out the deep in search of big fish. Once you find them, her outriggers and downriggers will give you the best possible spread to tempt in the best catch. She also has a fighting chair for if you hook a monster!

All IOU Fishing Charters trips come with tackle, lures, and a cleaning and filleting service for your fish at the end of the day. While onboard, you will be kept well fed and will be given plenty of drinks from the full bar onboard. Just bring your camera, your sunscreen, and any seasickness medicine you might need, and get ready for a great day on the water!
