A cool little video of light tackle fishing through the mangroves in Antigua.

As most of our promotional material will explain, our Eco Tour is based on adventures we would get up as kids. Long before we were old enough to take the boat out by ourselves, my Dad and our uncles would take us exploring in the North Sound Islands as well as around Barbuda.

This photo is a shot of me, my brother Ali and sister Nell out fishing with Dad. When my dad was a kid he did the same thing out there with his dad and with friends growing up. As soon as I was old enough to use the boat sometime around my eleventh birthday, my cousins David and Nick and I would lead our own adventures. Anyway, you can imagine how easy it was to start when I finally decided to make a business out of our adventures. Every now and then I spend a day in the North Sound fishing just as I did when I was a kid. Last week I was invited out fishing by Stevie and David Mendes who both have worked with Adventure Antigua as crew and as captains.
As you will see in this video, it was just some simple light tackle fishing fun on a 13 foot boston whaler with a 15 hp engine. I hope to one day take my kids up into these islands and do the same things. How could anyone get tired of doing this stuff?
