Fishing in BVI - anything to eat?

We will be in BVIs in march, I know ciguatera is a risk on the reef fish, but is there much to catch and eat without going to the deeper areas?

We may run outside since the deep water is so close, looks like about 5nm trip from Norman Island. What I've read is you need to hit the shelf to troll for the top water fish.

What can we eat on the inside that's accessible though? I got really hungry looking at all those tarpon under the boat

Check the regulations. Recreational fishing is very limited.

Having a hard time finding restrictive limitations. Of course the official page seems to be down.

What I do know is...
  • license for the boat
  • license for each person over 18
  • species restrictions such as billfish
  • 30lb of fish per boat at a time

do you have examples of other restrictions? I assume there are some national parks and preserves you can't fish through. That is what I'm nervous about.

I have supplies for hand lines. Excited to get down there and troll. probably catch/release for the kids when we get to destinations.
