The world is huge and water covers almost 3/4 of it. One of the largest fresh water fishing rivers is the Amazon River. The Amazon is the second largest river in the world with only the Nile being longer. But, unlike the Nile, the Amazon is navigable with ocean going vessels for 3000 miles. This makes it possible to have an amazing fishing adventure. If river fishing is your favorite, the Amazon River is a wild wonderful venue. The Amazon starts in the Andes Mountains and runs across the continent emptying into the Atlantic Ocean. All along this river the fishing and the local culture is amazing.

The fishing is excellent all up and down the Amazon. There are well over a 1000 different species found in the river. Some of the fish are crazy man eaters like the red bellied piranha.

Another great International fishing spot is the Caribbean Sea. This area has many different types of fishing and all of them are excellent.

The Caribbean Sea is surrounded by land on the south and west and circled by islands on the north and east. For the most part, Caribbean is more than 6000 feet deep. Large portions of the sea are 12,000 feet deep. The deepest area is the Cayman trench is over 25,000 feet deep.

These nice deep waters are home to Marlin, Sailfish, and Spearfish, Swordfish, Wahoo, and many others. This area maintains a fairly consistent temperature year round so the fishing conditions remain constant year round.

There are many fishing contests all throughout the world. If you’ve never competed in a contest you owe it to your self to try. If you’re just not sure, try watching a fishing video. Then book your trip.
