Fish a secret reef

“Most folk head to the North Drop off Anegada where the fishing is great. But it gets too busy for me,” says big-game fisherman Captain Sandy.

“I prefer the South Drop, because only locals know about it and the fish there bite more.”

And he should know: Sandy holds the unofficial record for the biggest tuna, wahoo and blue marlin ever caught in these waters, the latter more than four metres long and weighing just over 500 kilos. It took him more than six hours to reel in. Those marlin are best found between June and October, but Sandy’s tip is the August full moon, when he “guarantees” you’ll catch something big. To find it? “Head south west for about 15 miles from the south tip of Virgin Gorda and you’ll be right over it. Or come and ask me and I’ll take you there myself.” Speak to a local – everyone knows him.
