Lucky Strike Charters

Village Cay Marina
Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Available all year round, Lucky Strike Charters offers a sport fishing experience in the warm and vibrant waters in and around the British Virgin Islands.

Their captain has been taught by some the best anglers to land the best species around. If you are looking to explore the hottest fishing grounds, you have found the right guide. He will pass the knowledge of the sea and fishing to you and help you create memories that will last a lifetime.

You will mainly be trolling with lures around St. Martin, St. Barths, St. Kitts, Anguilla, and Eustatia. Your main target will include Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and many other species that patrol the offshore waters.

Your boat for the day will be a fancy 44’ Rodman Pro fisher, which was designed specifically for sport fishermen. She has all the comforts of home while also being a well-equipped fishing machine to land or release the big one.

The two-cabin comfort allows the crew to offer the anglers the opportunity of ‘staying out’ overnight and close to the fishing grounds for as long as they would love to.

Everything will be provided for the trip, from rods, reels, and tackle to bait and food.

Lucky Strike Charters does it differently and catches fish. Welcome aboard!

About the Captain

Ryan Smolderen
Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Member since January 2016
Essentially, I am a racing yachtsman, who has raced and delivered sail yachts to all corners of the globe and has accumulated 125,000 nm during the past 50 years while involved in the yachting industry. All this time while delivering yachts "catching fish' was the normal and it became a 'passion' because like yacht racing, fishing is also an 'art' and requires knowledge and expertise. For the past 12 years, I have been based in the B.V.I. and Puerto Rico and always looking for 'hot spots' for the enjoyment of our clients.
