The Jamaica offers a variety of fishing experiences throughout the year, catering to first time, novice and expert fishermen. The winter time brings Offshore Wreck Fishing season. The offshore trips typically start in late November. Trips will typically sail 4 times a week throughout the months of November, December, January, February, March and April. These 18 Hour excursions can provide Cod, Pollock, Ling, Hake, Porgies and Giant Sea Bass depending on the open seasons/regulations in sizes and quantities not found on inshore wrecks with any regularity.
Recommended Tackle for Offshore Trips: 3/0 or 4/0 Reel with 40 or 50 lb. test line. Size 4/0 - 6/0 hooks for bait rigs with 16oz. to 20oz. sinker.
12 oz. to 16 oz. diamond jigs with 9/0 or 10/0 teaser tied 2 feet above jig for Pollock.

Dress in layers, it will be cool on the water. Bring rubber gloves if you don't like handling wet bait (clams). Lunch and can drinks, hat and sunglasses, and cooler for fish. 2 small towels for hands. You could add a trash bag to line your ice chest. Rain suit (optional). A six pack of can beer per individual is acceptable.
Suggested Stay Warm Gear:
Hat, thermal shirt and bottom, turtleneck, scarf, and fleece jacket under your outer coat. Warm pants and fleece cargo pants (waterproof pants optional). Men's work socks and comfortable boots. Warm gloves and hand warmers. It is always better to layer and have too much than not enough. This is what I wear and I'm fine. This coming from one who does not like the cold.
