Inshore trips are generally shorter because of their closer proximity to St. Thomas. Fishing the inshore cays, lagoons, and reefs around the island is an excellent way to catch a wide variety of fish while providing the excitement of multiple hook-ups throughout the day. The average run to these locations is just a few minutes through the scenic Charlotte Amalie Harbor. Nearly all inshore fishing is done within sight of land offering spectacular scenery of the St. Thomas coastline.

The term inshore fishing is most commonly used to describe the fishing that takes place in the shallow saltwater flats and bays most notably located in the Gulf Coast and South East United States. The shallow water can be anywhere from 2'-20' and traditionally targets fish such as: Spotted Sea Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Cobia, Tarpon and many more. Tackle considerations for this unique style of fishing can vary greatly based on several factors most important of which is the size of fish you are targeting. Most inshore anglers simplify their arsenal to two setups: one light and one heavier as determined by the size of fish they hope to catch. Additionally, anglers should consider their conditions as another factor in choosing the correct tackle. Let's first start by breaking down the two setups, light and heavy.
