The FISHING: The fishing, and especially the billfishing in Grenada has been extremely overlooked and is one of the best places in the world to catch a Grand Slam (catch 3 species of billfish in 1 day) or a Super Slam (catching 4 different species of billfish in 1 day). The sailfish action keeps the level of excitement high everyday in Grenada along with the occasional white marlin and spearfish. Getting multiple shots at Blue Marlin is not at all uncommon in Grenada making it one of the most diverse billfisheries in the world. Did I mention Mahi, Wahoo, and Big Tunas too? CLICK HERE to WATCH THE ACTION from January 2018 on Exile!!! What better way to break up the dead of Winter then an amazing fishing trip to the Caribbean to enjoy the island life…
