Grand Bahama Bonefishing is a new name with old faces in the bonefishing world. The Pinder brothers are seasoned guides with many years of experience and value your friendship and promise to give you an exceptional day on the water.
The North Shore of Grand Bahama Island is one the Bahamas top fisheries for big bonefish. Fish generally average 5 – 7 pounds and double digit fish are taken frequently. The area is also unique in that it is one of the few places in the Bahamas where tarpon are available (especially during the spring months).
Since opening in the Spring of ’99, Grand Bahama Bonefishing’s anglers have landed tarpon, permit and a ton of bonefish, many over 10 pounds. The largest bone to date is a monster taken February 26th, 2000, which taped out at 34 1/2 inches with an 18 inch girth, and tipped the scales at a whopping 16 1/4 pounds!
The Pinder Brothers, David Jr., Jeffrey and Joseph are among the most experienced and talented bonefish guides in the Bahamas, having literally grown up in the guiding business at the famed Deep Water Cay Club on the island’s East End. David Pinder Jr. has won the All-Bahamian Bonefishing Tournament of Grand Bahama Island. On a single day, David landed 23 bones!
Accommodations for Grand Bahama Bonefishing is located at the beautiful Breakers Cay / Lighthouse Point at the Our Lucayan Resort, located a short 10-minute ride from the airport and dock. Breakfasts are buffet style in the Willy Broadleaf’s Restaurant, located away from the original Lucayan Reef Village which is now the Sheraton.
The Westin at Breakers Cay / Lighthouse Point is a smaller area with its own restaurants, swimming pool, private beach, casino and fitness center. The hotel is also located within walking distance of the Marina and many of the finer restaurants. Golf is available at the world class Lucayan Country Club, which was voted #1 in the Bahamas in 1999. The amenities, services and activities offered at the Our Lucayan Resort have made GBB a wonderful destination for couples or groups with non-fisherpersons.
One of the Pinders will be in touch with you either the afternoon or night of your arrival. Transportation to the dock is via GBB’s own van. One of the Pinders (usually Edwin) will be transporting fishermen to and from the dock. The fishing van will pick you up in the morning around 8:00 am in front of the hotel. If you should miss the van or wish to get a later start, there are cabs available at the hotel. The address for the fishing launch is 26 Wellington Street, Queens Cove. The fishing day is over at 4:15 pm and you should be back at Lighthouse Point by 5:00 pm. Jeffrey Pinder’s wife, Edith, will continue to provide quality picnic lunches.
