Bahamas Fishing Island vacation
The Bahamas boast pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters, offering world-class bottom fishing opportunities year-round for species like Grouper and Snapper. Additionally, you can enjoy incredible Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Blue Marlin fishing during their respective seasons.
Wahoo season runs from October through February off Cay Sal Bank and Bimini. These impressive fish typically average 30-60 pounds, and it’s common to catch 10-30 fish per day using high-speed trolling at 14 knots. We utilize electric assist reels, with the option for anglers to manually reel in the fish for added excitement.
Yellowfin Tuna season runs from February through August, with each fish averaging 40-60 pounds, and some reaching up to 100 pounds. During this season, we have the opportunity to catch as many as we can handle. Our target location is the Northwest Providence Channel south of Grand Bahama. To locate the Tunas, we rely on the vessel’s radar to spot birds feeding on the bait that the Tunas pursue. We employ the method of chunking and live bait chumming to attract the fish from depths of 250 feet below up to just under the boat, where we hand-feed the Tuna.
Blue Marlin season runs from April through September, and these majestic fish typically average between 250 to 500 pounds each. To target Blue Marlin, we use a trolling technique with a maximum 8-line spread and 4 teasers, employing a combination of natural bait and lures.

Multi day trip Itinerary
On the departing day, we convene at 7:30 AM to load the boat and embark on a 1.5-hour voyage to the Bahamas, where we may encounter pelagic fish like Mahi, Tuna, and Billfish in the deep Gulf Stream. Upon our arrival in the Bahamas, our first order of business is to clear customs, obtain our dock slip and room keys, and unload our luggage and groceries. Once we’ve checked in, each day is filled with exciting activities, whether it’s fishing, free diving, spearfishing, snorkeling at shipwrecks, or simply enjoying the beach, where you can hand-feed friendly local stingrays and nurse sharks.
We return to land every afternoon with enough daylight to clean our catch, which we either cook at a local restaurant or in the accommodations’ kitchen. In the evenings, there’s a plethora of entertainment options, from local dance bars to the resort’s casino.
On the morning of our departure, our luggage is loaded onto the boat. After spending the day fishing, we return to Miami by 5 PM, once again crossing the Gulf Stream in search of Mahi, Tuna, and other pelagic fish. Upon arriving in Miami, we engage in a video chat with customs and immigration for clearance to re-enter the USA. Then, we proceed to clean our day’s catch and unload our luggage. We recommend staying in Miami for the final night or scheduling a very late flight, just in case customs and immigration request an in-person meeting at their office for any member of the group.
We also provide a convenient shipping service for your catch through a trusted third-party provider.
