Tobago is blessed with abundantly rich marine life, including coral reefs with numerous reef species, and of course big game fish and smaller game fish. For visitors to the island angling, chartering a game fishing boat, or sharing a charter trip with strangers who then become friends - all is possible. The best months for off shore angling are November to May. From June to November there are other fishing thrills ... including the hard fighting Tarpon PLUS for good measure, try Lake fishing (!!! yup!!!) in the lakes at Tobago Plantations Golf course which have been stocked with Tarpon, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Mullet and Tilapia for catch and release recreational fishing.
During your visit to Tobago, after all the sun sea and sand, and you are thinking about "what's next" why not try game fishing? You never know what you'll reel in!
The TIGFT special feature is its emphasis on CONSERVATION of the island's fisheries through the TAG and RELEASE programme. This is especially important for the livelihood of the fishermen of Charlotteville, the host village. Of the fish brought to scale, some is donated to charities including the Orphanage, Home for the Elderly and others.

The last word comes from Walter Benjamin, of Charlotteville ... " the tournament allows the villagers to display their hospitality and friendliness. The seniors of the village look forward to providing hearty breakfasts to the anglers on the last day ... including "cocoa tea" and soursop ice cream. .... while the smaller boats have joined in the competitive spirit to prove that they too can catch big fish like the cabin cruisers...."
