Fishing

swain's%20cay%20lodgeWith some of the most exciting fishing in the world, The Bahamas has plenty to offer to the novice and fanatic alike.

The more than 700 islands that make up The Bahamas seem to have been created just for the angler. Remote and beautiful islands like Andros and Abaco are the main draw for fishing enthusiasts. Boasting over 50 record catches, the islands are surrounded by hundreds of miles of soft and hard bottom flats, creek channels and ocean drop off, attracting fishermen from all over the world. These areas are rich with life, energy, and an abundance of fish that can provide non stop action for an angler’s rod arm as well as his imagination. Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Barracuda, Snapper and other game fish roam these waters, but without a doubt the Bonefish is king, with Bonefish events and tournaments being held throughout the year. These silver gamesters hold a special place in the heart of anyone who has caught them.

There is a wide range of accommodation to choose from, from the basic anglers lodge with comfortable rooms and home cooked meals, to the deluxe, with ocean side swimming pool and professional chef. All the guides are top quality and trained to work with fly fishers. Many are excellent casting instructors and eager to assist the newcomer. The guides are very courteous and knowledgeable. 14 to 18 foot flats boats (Dolphin to Back Country style) are equipped with casting platforms and well maintained Yamaha motors. These dependable fishing platforms are especially rigged to sneak up on spooky fish feeding on the flats.
