Fishing in Cayman Islands

This Caribbean paradise may be better know for finance than fish, but Cayman Islands fishing has all the makings of a world-class day on the water. The island chain sits on the edge of the darkest depths of the Caribbean: the 20,000-foot Cayman Trench. Inshore reefs give way to blue waters within swimming distance of shore. You also have some amazing flats and mangroves, and unique water havens like Stingray City. There’s a lot to pack in on Cayman Islands fishing charters.
 
How you spend your trip will depend on which island you visit. Grand Cayman is the biggest of the three and has a lot more going on off the water. It also has the majority of the country’s charter boats. Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are much smaller and less populated. They both have some incredible flats and backcountry. Of course, all three islands are stunning, with white sandy beaches and crystal-clear seas. You really can't go wrong if you're looking for beauty.

Types of Fishing

The best thing about fishing in the Caymans is that you can enjoy fun flats action, productive reef fishing, and a serious bluewater bite, all in one day! Most charter captains give you the choice of where to fish. Here are the main ways you can spend your day.
 

Deep Sea Fishing

You can find Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo pretty much year-round in the Cayman Islands. The best bite is during the hot summer months, with everything except Wahoo hitting their peak in June and July. All three islands have reliable – although not enormous – deep sea fish within easy reach of a half day trip. Grand Cayman is your best bet for big game battles, simply because there are a lot more boats here.
 

Inshore Fishing

Bonefish and Tarpon are the main targets on flats fishing trips. Cayman Brac and Grand Cayman are best for bonefishing, but the mangroves and inland waters on all three islands hold lots of baby Tarpon. The only place you’re likely to see Silver Kings in the 50-100 lb range is on George Town’s waterfront, where they get fed by crowds of tourists. We’ve never tried fishing here, but we’re pretty sure it’s frowned upon. You also have Permit, Pompano, and Barracuda in the shallows throughout the country. The best time to target these fish is in the heat of summer when the winds are lower and the fish aren’t scared into deeper waters.
 

Reef Fishing

Inshore reefs straddle the line between the beach and bluewaters throughout the Cayman Islands. They’re home to year-round populations of Jack Crevalle, Mangrove, Mutton and Yellowtail Snapper, Triggerfish, and Nassau Grouper. You can also find some Goliath Grouper swimming around the shallower edges of the reefs. Reef fishing is a great way to switch things up on a full day trip. You can spend the morning battling Billfish, then hit the reefs on your way back to snorkel and catch some tasty bottom fish.

Fishing Techniques

The fish don’t get that big here. Blue Marlin average around 150 pounds and Tarpon rarely top 15 pounds in places you can actually catch them. Don’t let this put you off, though. It means you can enjoy incredible light and fly action for all your favorite fish. Trolling is the most common tactic offshore, while inshore anglers prefer light spinning or fly gear. On the reefs, you will either be jigging or bottom fishing, with the option to try traditional handline fishing, too.

Need to Know

You don’t need a fishing license on a registered Cayman fishing charter. You can also fish from shore without a license, but you have to release all your fish. Certain species, including Sharks, Rays, and Goliath Grouper, cannot be removed from the water under any circumstances. The Islands are an important spawning ground for Nassau Grouper. Because of this, it’s illegal to fish within a mile of any Designated Grouper Spawning Area from November 1st through March 31st. It’s also illegal to fish in any Wildlife Interaction Zone, such as the Sandbar or Stingray City. 
 
During a single day in the Caymans, you can battle Blue Marlin, drop lines for Snappers, fly fish for Tarpon, and still have time to swim with Stingrays. Nowhere else in the Caribbean can you do so much on one trip. Captains here are happy to give you the reigns and let you decide how you spend your day. So jump aboard and take your pick!

Cayman Islands Fishing Seasons

January
Kick off the year with screaming drag as you battle Wahoo offshore. Fish the reefs for tasty Snapper and Triggerfish, or head to the Taste of Cayman Food and Wine Festival to enjoy the nation’s top treats.
February

The Little Cayman Mardi Gras Festival brings the island to life in a flurry of color and dance. Check it out, then fish for monster Wahoo offshore or Bonefish and Tarpon in the shallows.

March

This is your last chance to take on lightning-fast Wahoo offshore. The Mahi Mahi bite starts to pick up and the reefs are bursting with fish. Wherever you go, you’ll land something special.

April

Take part in the exclusive Cayman Islands International Fishing Tournament or visit Cayfest, the country’s biggest arts and culture event. Otherwise, head offshore and bag some tasty Mahi Mahi.

May

The Cayman Carnival Batabano takes over the streets of George Town with parades, live calypso bands, and so much more. Nassau Grouper are open for harvest from May.

June

June is one of the best months to fish in the Caymans. Marlin, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi tear through the bluewaters, while low winds make for dream Tarpon and bonefishing on the flats.

July

Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Tarpon, Bonefish, Permit, Pompano, Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish – it’s easier to name the fish you can’t catch in July!

August

The Marlin bite starts to drop off in August, but Tuna and Mahi Mahi are still on fire! Temperatures can be crushing this time of year, so wade out, cool off and try Bonefishing.

September

This is your last chance to bag big Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna. Skipjack also show up by the dozen in September, bringing a Tuna Grand Slam well within reach.

October

The best thing about the Caymans is that they’re great whenever you go! No one fish is at its best this time of year, but they’re all around in decent numbers. Just take your pick.

November

The first Wahoo show up, joining a ton of Skipjacks offshore. The annual Cayman Islands Pirates Week kicks off with costumes, events, and great family fun. It’s not an event to miss!

December

If all you want for Christmas is Wahoo, you’ve come to the right place! With big fish, warm seas, soft sands, and not a snowflake in sight, it’s the perfect place to spend the holiday season.
