The Bahamas are a beautiful chain of islands as close as 60 miles from the South Florida coast. The fishing in the Bahamas is extremely productive, being that there are very few local boats that fish the area. One of the best ways to go sportfishing in the Bahamas islands is to charter a boat from Fort Lauderdale.
This has become a very popular trip for our customers. Bahamas trips are not cheap but they are very exciting and well worth the cost. Our minimum trip is a 3 day trip to Bimini, the shortest trip that gives us a good amount of fishing time over there.
Bimini island is only about 60 miles southeast of Ft. Lauderdale. Usually on a 3 day Bimini trip, we like to get an early start and go trolling on the way over. The exact waters you cross over when headed to Bimini are perfect grounds for mahi mahi, marlin, sailfish, wahoo, tuna and more. We’ll fish all the way across and then do some fishing around the island. We’ll get in to Bimini at about 4 PM and we’ll clear customs and get checked into hotels, etc… Drinks and dinner, and we’re off to be because the next day we leave the docks at 7AM for a full 10 hours of fishing.
Bottom dropping for golden amberjacks, groupers, giant deep water snappers, trolling for wahoo, tuna and dolphin, anchor fishing for giant grouper and mutton snapper, whatever kind of fishing is your fancy, the Bahamas will be our playground when we’re over there. When we get back in, its drinks and dinner again, hopefully toasting a great couple of days fishing. If it’s only a 3 day trip, then the next day we check out after an early breakfast. We get fishing early and fish for whatever you guys want to target. Around 3 or 4 in the afternoon, we should be about 25 miles off Fort Lauderdale, where we just might hit one last big school of mahi mahi before we get back to Port Everglades inlet.
Bahamas trips are wonderful and we usually come back with a boatload of fish. If time and budget allow it, longer trips much better because we get a lot more fishing time over there and we can venture to farther islands. Walkers Cay, Harbor Island, Chub Cay, Nassau and Boat Harbor are a few of my favorite islands to visit and fish. They are quite a ways farther than Bimini and therefore require at least a 4-5 day trip. The farthest islands that we go to are San Salvador and Cat Island, which require at least a 7-8 day trip.
Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Dolphin, Sharks, Grouper, Snapper, Barracuda, Jacks, Tuna, and Wahoo are the main species of fish we target on our Bahamas charters. Trolling is very effective in the Bahamas because you can cover a lot of ground in a relatively short amount of time. Anchor fishing for snapper and grouper is always fun, and will usually yield a lot of fish. Deep dropping with electric reels is usually very productive too, and let me tell you, there are some strange critters down at those depths. There are a million ways to fish, but if you’re looking for the ultimate fishing getaway in a remote, laid back, tropical location, for some awesome game fishing, then a few days Bahamas fishing charter is exactly what you need.
