Yep, confirmed - the boat and the fisherman needs to have a license. The owner/charter company has to register the boat. The better charter
companies TMM, CYOA, etc (not Moorings/Sunsail) have registered the boat.
You can get a fishing license yourself through Conservation & Fisheries Department - BVI Fishing Licences
Last Stop Sports can set you up with a license and gear
As for fishing, we do ok in the BVI
at the south drop and between Anegada
and Jost out to Kingfish Banks. But, the fishing is better in the USVI and especially good between St. Thomas and Culebra
. In November we got the most action on ballyhoo and Dorado and Bonito colored poppers trolled at 6 kts.
