Big Ting

Spanish Town
Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Island…

Captain Randy Pitt describes the beautiful and little-known island of Virgin Gorda as “nature’s little secret,” and he’s ready to put it on the map when it comes to big game fishing! Join Big Ting charters and get ready to cruise these crystal clear waters on the adventure of a lifetime.

Capt. Randy is a native Virgin Islander who can’t wait to introduce you to the opportunities that these fishing grounds have to offer. Whether you want to head offshore and deep sea troll for hard-fighting Mahi Mahi and Blue Marlin, or cruise the waters closer to shore for King Mackerel, your captain and his experienced, professional crew will be on hand to put you on fish. Get ready to reel in your dream catch!

You’ll be traveling to the fishing hotspots on a 30’ Proline walkaround vessel. She can comfortably accommodate up to 4 guests, and is built to safely cruise inshore and offshore waters. Onboard you’ll find a private toilet, GPS, fishfinder, and life jackets for all ages, as well as a fighting chair and outriggers to maximize your fishing potential.

If big game offshore fishing sounds like a dream come true to you, then Capt. Randy will take you up to 30 miles out into productive waters to go after some hard-fighters. Get ready to battle Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Billfish, including Blue Marlin. Blues are strictly catch and release here – after all, it’s only fair that other anglers get the chance to reel them in! The rest of your catch will be split between your group and the crew.

If you’re newer to fishing, or want to take your family on an unforgettable vacation, then you have the option to explore inshore fishing grounds. You’ll be trolling for Kingfish (King Mackerel) and Barracuda – these guys put up a fight and make for an exciting day out on the water!

Your trip includes Penn and Shimano rods and reels, tackle, lures, and a valid fishing license. You’ll also be treated to snacks and drinks. Come aboard Big Ting and get ready to fish in paradise!

Growing up, the boat life was all I knew. It's a life I would never trade! I became a fisherman through passion. I can remember the unexplainable feeling I had the first time I got tight lines. It was a Yellowtail Snapper, 7.2' long, and I caught it while casting. Today, every time we get a fish on, I'm like a kid in a candy store. And to top that off, I'm located in paradise. Come and join me!
