Little Corn Island Sport Fishing
One of the most popular activities and reasons people visit Little Corn Island is for the wonderful sport fishing. On Little Corn, you can enjoy both world class shore (flats) fishing and offshore conventional tackle deep sea fishing (typically less than 5 miles offshore). Feel free to bring your own equipment and lures as your equipment may add to the chance of success because equipment available for rent, if there is any, is sometimes of not very high quality .
Shore, Flats and Fly Fishing
With the opportunity to catch prized fish such as Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook and the occasional small shark among others, it is no wonder why many sportsman come to Little Corn Island to test their prowess at traditional flats fishing and fly fishing from shore. Bring your own fishing equipment and enjoy some of the best shore fishing the Caribbean Sea has to offer. For guided fly fishing look to Fly Fishing Little Corn.
Offshore conventional tackle deep sea fishing (less than 5 miles offshore) allows you to test your angler skills against some of the most fun fish you can catch anywhere.

Responsible Eco-Friendly Fishing Practices
Please fish responsibly. We encourage our guests to have fun while fishing but to do so in an “eco-friendly” manner. Please use catch and release methods unless you plan to eat your catch. In that case, simply bring home enough for your dinner – one fish per fisherman please! Sometimes, your fishing guide will use your excursion as a convenient way to load up on fish of his own. If this feels inappropriate or possibly offends you, don’t hesitate to ask them to “please don’t while I am chartering the trip”.
Spearfishing is illegal for tourists on the island! While it can be difficult to monitor and enforce the spearfishing ban on a remote island like Little Corn, we strongly urge you to act responsibly and leave your spearfishing gear behind as we can already see the effects from the sport on our small reef ecosystem. Large fish and apex predators like groupers, snapper and sharks have been greatly reduced in numbers on the reef. When the apex predators are gone, all parts of reef health can quickly deteriorate. As with all aspects of Little Corn Island, we ask that you please respect the local environment and community and leave your spears at home.
