H2O Bonefishing combines productive, uncrowded bonefishing on Grand Bahama with high-end accommodations, amenities, beaches, shops and restaurants, making it a good fit for couples and families.
Grand Bahama enjoys some of the most expansive flats in the northern Bahamas; they extend 25 miles to the west and 60 miles to the east of the island. The bonefishing can be exceptional, with opportunities to cast to schools of bones averaging 4 to 6 pounds. Much larger doubles and singles are also commonly encountered. The H2O Bonefishing fly-caught record bonefish weighed 14½ pounds.
Grand Bahama’s bonefishing habitat consists primarily of a vast, mangrove-lined north shore and shallow flats at the mangrove’s edge. Bottom structure varies from soft sand and grass to hard sand and marl, ideal for wading anglers.
H2O Bonefishing guests can also fish the outer cays. Their proximity to deeper water makes the cays a perfect habitat for permit and tarpon (late spring through fall) and barracuda. There are also schools of horse-eye jacks averaging 10 to 15 pounds, and good numbers of bonefish.
When northerly winds pick up, the southern side of Grand Bahama offers a bonefishing lee. A short boat ride opens up miles of white sand and reef fringe flats perfect for wading. During spring and summer permit can also be found on the south side.
H2O Bonefishing’s team of professional fishing guides have combined experience of over 50 years on the flats of Grand Bahama. Each guide fishes from a well maintained, 16-foot Maverick flats skiff powered by an 85hp Yamaha outboard. The boats are also equipped with VHF radios, cell phones, trim tabs, poling platforms and leaning posts.
H2O Bonefishing also recently introduced a blue water fly fishing program, targeting yellow fin tuna, black fin tuna, skipjack tuna and dorado. Tuna average 15 to 25 pounds, though they range up to 60 pounds, and are usually caught on floating fly line.
The offshore bite is best in the early morning and evening, so anglers can combine this option with a full day on the flats. A few hours of blue water fishing can be a nice change from the flats and is also a perfect option for arrival and departure days.
H2O Bonefishing suites are attractive, well-appointed, waterfront rooms in one of the “small Treasures of the Bahamas.” Spacious accommodations include a choice of king sized bed or two double size beds, satellite television, telephone, refrigerator and coffee maker. The hotel is equipped with a business center with wireless Internet access. Room arrangements for families and baby-sitting services can be arranged.
H2O Bonefishing is centrally located, guests east access to a variety of the islands best restaurants, as well as a number of activities with in short walk from the hotel, such as the beautiful white sand of Lucaya Beach and the heart beat of the island’s entertainment at Count Bassie Square. Should non angling activities for wives and/or family be a consideration, it’s very hard to find a better program to cater to them while knowing there will be zero compromise to the quality of your flats fishing.
