Fingers crossed, there will finally be a major fishing tournament this weekend.
After massive rescheduling and a pair of postponements, the Bacardi Angling Tournament is slated for tomorrow. Hooray!
Recognising that the twenty-odd...

Here we go again! Is there no end to this hurricane season? And why is Bermuda on the receiving end?
Think about it: all the major storms that stick out in most minds were E, F or G-named ones; Emily, Fabian, Fay and Gonzalo awaken...

Was there ever any doubt as to what would happen? Probably not, especially at this time of the year when the so-called tropical systems dominate the weather in the Atlantic basin.
So, it should come as no surprise that the first and...

The calendar does indeed zip along as yet another month is here.
From many points of view, especially in the days when light tackle was king, September was considered by many to be the single best fishing month of the year.

Here we are in the August doldrums, even though the sea conditions would suggest otherwise.
The humdrumness of it all stems from the fact that the fish have not yet turned on and the bite is poor.
It is not that you can’t catch any...

A long-awaited shift in the weather brought some much-needed rain to the Island and some relief for tanks and the parched plant life.
Rainfall freshens the surface waters and may help to cool things down a bit although it would take a vast...

While the summer lethargy may have set in, September will soon be here and the fishing season will rapidly conclude thereafter.
It may be hot but for many this is the time of the year to venture offshore in the calm weather that has...

No doubt that the temperature is high, and it is a hot, dry summer by any account and the fishing is that spotty sort that suggests that even the fish are feeling the heat.
Certainly, the calm seas and searing sun are enough to give most...

The illusion that this was a cooler summer than others has been pretty firmly knocked out of people’s heads with the warm weather and amazingly calm conditions of the past couple of weeks.
Those who follow the tropical...

Now I know how Rip Van Winkle felt when he woke up.
Just on the verge of a promising looking fishing season and, BANG, out of a fairly clear blue sky comes the pandemic that has kicked more things into touch than any of us could have...

It is almost over. Again. One would have to be oblivious to the decorations in the shops and on the streets that not just the fishing season, but the year is drawing to a close.
The passage of cold fronts, lowered temperatures and drearier...

Time is running out unless you want to spend the next four or five months watching the weather and hoping for the odd, very odd, weekend that will not only be fishable, but will have the fish in a co-operative mood.
Winter fishing is very...

If the proliferation of witches, ghosts and pumpkins hasn’t given it away yet, then you may just start to come to the realisation that the angling season is slowly, but very surely, coming to an end.
Although back in the olden days when the...

Finally! They say that all good things come to those who wait but this year’s Royal Gazette Wahoo Tournament kept a lot of people waiting for a very long time – five weeks to be precise.
Everything came right in the end, though. Sunday was...

Another weekend beckons and the question in every angler’s mind is whether or not the weather will allow for fishing.
Certainly, the last few have not and it is getting rather late in the year to even be considering an offshore...

Last Sunday sure wasn’t a day for wahoo fishing; especially not in a small boat!
Conditions saw the Royal Gazette Wahoo Tournament postponed yet again with a small craft warning keeping much of the fleet at home.
Leaving that aside,...
