Fishing in the Bahamas

Bahamas, Caribbean
Bahamas's insider take:

Andros covers an area of 2,300 square miles and is the quintessential unspoiled Bahamas, a landscape laced with inlets and bights. Here and there, a faded sign announces a small inn or fishing resort (fishing is big here, naturally). Try Andros Island Bonefish Club (Cargill Creek, Andros Island; 242-368-5167; or Big Bite Guide Services (Mangrove Cay, South Andros Island; 242-369-0798; closed Sun. and the last two weeks in July through the end of September). For the uninitiated, bonefishing requires a small, flat-bottomed boat and a guide who poles the craft along while fishermen try to nab the slippery little bonefish with a fly rod. Specialists based on the Abaco islands include Drexel McIntosh (Coopers Town, Abaco Island; 242-456-6967; closed Aug.–Dec.) and Justin Sands (Marsh Harbour, Abaco Island; 242-367-3526; so popular you might have to book six months ahead!). If you're interested in deep-sea fishing, try Fish Rowe Charters (George Town, Exuma Island; 242-357-0870;, while Top Cat Fishing, will take you fishing for wahoo, kingfish, and billfish close to Harbour Island. Any fish you catch will be cleaned so you can take it back to the chef at your hotel (242-333-2323;; closed Sept.–Oct.).
