I’ve recently returned from two amazing weeks exploring destinations across Grand Bahama and Abaco islands. After a quick overnight in Fort Lauderdale my wife and I arrived at H2O Bonefishing in beautiful Freeport, Grand Bahama to beautiful sunny skies, calm winds and near perfect bonefishing conditions. Guests of H2O Bonefishing stay at Pelican Bay Resort. A fully featured resort hotel, with plenty of modern amenities and easy access to the Port Lucaya Marketplace. Opportunities abound for shopping, dining, gambling and nightlife entertainment near the marketplace and Freeport.

H20 Bonefishing provides a great options for anyone looking for a hard-core bonefishing opportunity that can also be coupled with a relaxing family or couples trip. Anglers fish the remote and expansive north side of the island. The great conditions provided for some fantastic bonefishing and ample opportunities to put a bend in our 8 weights. The great bonefishing and comfortable surroundings of Pelican Bay Resort and the Port Lucaya Marketplace made for a lively, fast-paced and fun filled 3 days. If you’re keen to try your hand at some truly large bonefish while staying in a large resort setting, then this is the place!

The beautiful Taino Beach near Freeport offers about as perfect a beach day as you can imagine!

Our next destination would take us an hour’s drive to the east to the beautiful Deep Water Cay. Deep Water Cay sits on a private island at the extreme east end of Grand Bahama. I arrived at the lodge expecting top notch service, understated luxury, a pristine eco-system and monster bonefish and that is exactly what we got! Deep Water Cay is everything we expected and more. From the super comfortable private fishing cottages, brilliant Bahamian cuisine, a superbly friendly Bahamian staff, state-of-the-art equipment, and incredibly skilled guides, it’s hard to imagine how any aspect of the trip could have been better. Of course, the fact that I landed my largest bonefish to date didn’t hurt either!

After three amazing days at Deep Water Cay we flew to Marsh Harbour on Abaco Island, where we were met at the airport and transferred only 15 minutes to Abaco Lodge. Abaco Lodge offers everything you could possibly want from a professional Bahamas operation. Short runs to the fishing grounds, private rooms included in your packagte, included alcohol, 400 square miles of fish-able terrain, and tons and tons of willing and accommodating bonefish! I had been excited to visit Abaco Lodge for years and was thoroughly impressed by every facet of the program. With news that Delta Airlines is now servicing Marsh Harbour direct from Atlanta, Abaco Lodge clearly offers one of the best, most convenient and productive bonefish trips in all of the Bahamas.


The modern, comfortable and casual surroundings of Abaco Lodge are a bonefish angler’s dream.
