Default Dock Fishing in Bermuda

Taking the Dawn to Bermuda soon and carrying onboard some very light tackle thinking I might be able to just sit on a dock with a line in the water. Has anyone out there ever tried this before in Bermuda. Let me hear from you.

I can't answer this one. I've never tried it. It is possible that a fishing license may be required.

Take care,

This was my first post/question, so I'm glad to hear from you. For those of you out there who just might consider doing this as well, I'm pretty sure no license is required, but it's strickly catch & release...then again, if I give a good eating fish to a local, I don't think anyone will complain. Still hoping to hear from you Fisherpeople out there.

Default Fishing in Bermuda

Hello Fellowcruisers,

In answer to your question about fishing off a dock, the answer is 'yes' as long as it isn't a private dock or the government ferry docks. You do not need a license (only a commercial fishing vessel).

Any public place along the rocks (as the locals do); wearing good heavy shoes because the rocks will cut your feet up.

Hope this answers your questions.

Happy fishing.

Default Back from My Cruise

Bermuda, partly sunny, ever slightly overcast, SW shoreline.
So I've gone and come back. Took my light tackle on board and had no trouble carrying it around that first day we docked. We could have probably dropped a line in around the dockyard area, but chose to hop on a bus to Somerset. From there we walked the shoreline looking for a spot. We found a place after crossing a high bridge and a gas station. Yes, the rocks are brutally sharp, but we found a plank of wood for a bench. Caught and released two fish, a 10in baby grouper, and what looked like an 8" scup. Lot's of fun.
Found another couple down the road with heavy saltwater rod and reel. They were from Colorado and often come to Bermuda (lugging that heavy tackle) to stay at a small rental and JUST FISH...something they couldn't do in Denver, saltwater, that is.
So that was my adventure.
