View Full Version : Question about fishing on St Maartin and St Thomas (the bring-your-own-rod type of fi

Has anyone brought their own rod and tried to fish on any of these islands? We would love to bring our own fly rods and fish off/near the pier where the ships moor (if possible), we just can’t remember if there were places to do that. :confused3
(We don’t want to shell out the $$$ nor do we want to stray far from the boat.)
We are leaning toward St Thomas.
