The Bahamas have a well-deserved reputation for the best bonefishing in the world, and Grand Bahama is one of the best in the Bahamas. The north shore of Grand Bahama holds several hundred square miles of flats, inlets and mangroves comprising a huge area of fly fishing grounds where you are unlikely to see another boat all day. These saltwater flats are packed with bonefish - it is not uncommon to see hundreds per day - that are less pressured, and therefore more likely to take your fly, than their brethren elsewhere in the world.
The Club is managed by Tim and Mercedes Comstock, who have spent 25 years in the Caribbean and Bahamas on luxury charter yachts as captain and chef. They have 7 experienced guides, many whom have been with the Club since it opened 13 years ago.
North Riding Point Club is located 20 miles due east of Freeport, Grand Bahama.
In classic Bahamian style, anglers at North Riding Point Club are typically sight fishing to bonefish from the bow of a poled flats skiff. Catch rates typically range from 2-7 fish per day that average 4-5 pounds, with frequent shots at larger bonefish, as well as occasional shots at tarpon, permit and barracuda. The North Riding Point Lodge has 7 sixteen foot Dolphin skiff with 85 Yamahas and one back-up boat.
The Bahamas are known for some of the best fishing in the world, and the island of Grand Bahama is no exception. North Riding Point Club has access to the best bonefishing flats on both the north and south shores of Grand Bahama. The north shore of Grand Bahama has the largest bonefish habitat, comprising several hundred square miles of flats, inlets, and mangrove-covered cays literally teeming with large, wild bonefish. It is not uncommon to see dozens, if not hundreds, of fish in a single day.
