Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge

Bonefish, Permit & Tarpon In The Out Islands

Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge is located on the North Side of Crooked Island. The lodge gets its name from their central location to the best fishing areas on both Crooked and Acklins islands. The primary fishery Trophy Lodge utilizes is “The Bight of Acklins,” 120 square miles of flats located between Crooked Island and Acklins Island. Acklins Trophy Lodge has world class bonefishing, that’s characteristic for the Bahamas, but also offers a diverse fishery including permit, Tarpon, barracuda, triggerfish and more.

The baseline for this fishery is plentiful bonefish averaging about 4 pounds and extensive wading flats. Larger bonefish up to 7 – 8 pounds are commonly encountered. Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge ups the ante with a focus and expertise on targeting other top level sport fish that frequent the bight.

While we still consider this a bonefish destinations, espeically for anglers who love to wade, Crooked and Acklins Islands are among the best Permit destinations for angler interested in chasing permit in the Bahamas. There’s a solid population of permit, with fish averaging right around 20 pounds virtually year round! While not as consistent, there is also a healthy population of resident Tarpon. Anglers may also have shots at larger migratory Tarpon during late Spring and early Summer.

Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge rotates their guides to give each guest an opportunity to experience as much of the fishery as possible during their stay. The guides launch out of Turtle Sound on the Crooked side (20 minute transfer from the lodge) and Acklins Cove on the Acklins side (15 minute transfer from the lodge) by 8:30AM and return to the docks by 5:30PM.

Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge is located on a private beach. The main lodge, where guests stay, consists of 5 spacious air-conditioned double rooms, each with a private bathroom and bath tub, sitting area, refrigerator, TV, dresser, and chest of drawers. Breakfast and dinner are served daily at the lodge’s common area. The common area, which Crooked and Acklins Trophy Lodge calls the “bar/restaurant,” has a kitchen, dining area, and a bar.

Typically a Friday overnight in Nassau is required to take the Saturday morning Bahamas Air flight to Crooked Island. Guests are met by one of the lodge managers for the 15 minute ground transfer to the lodge.
