Bahamas fishing is the perfect activity to enhance your Bahamas vacation. Fishing in the Bahamas offers a variety of fishing for all levels of anglers. Bonefishing in the Bahamas is a very popular sport and anglers can book through The Green Turtle Club a Bahamas flyfishing guide. The flats around our Cays are plentiful with bonefish for fly fishermen and spin casters looking for a challenge and our bone fishing guides have experience to help you catch the big one!
The flats of Green Turtle Cay are home to the elusive bonefish. Abaco has become renowned for large bonefish with fish of 9 to 12 pounds a common occurrence. A world record bonefish, 17 lb 2 oz., was caught in Abaco in 1999 by visiting fisherman Lazaros Vostitsanos of Tarpon Springs, Florida using 8 lb line and light spinning tackle.
A wide variety of options are offered to anglers visiting Green Turtle Cay. The offshore fishing of Abaco attracts many of the top billfish anglers from North America as big game fishing for billfish can be found just a few miles off shore. Dolphin, wahoo, tuna, and swordfish are abundant in the deep waters just beyond the reefs. The deep waters of the Atlantic near Abaco are home to prized big game fish. A 1035 pound blue marlin was caught in 1998 in one of the many Abaco tournaments held annually each spring. It is easy to see why The Bahamas has produced over 50 record catches!
Green Turtle Cay is home to more than just bonefishing and game fishing. Our ocean reefs attract a variety of fish and fishermen alike. Our reefs are just offshore so even those not-so-experienced seafarers can enjoy a day of fishing on the reef. Anglers at all levels will enjoy catching a variety of fish such as grouper, snapper, mackerel, trigger fish, permit, amberjack and even barracuda.
Local fishing guides are available to personalize all your fishing needs. It is highly recommended that reservations be made prior to your arrival at The Green Turtle Club.
