Trip Report - The Delphi Club, Bahamas
Trip Report

Our friends Mike and Tana Powell just returned from the Delphi Club in the Bahamas and dropped us this great trip report. 

We are back!  Loved the lodge, the guides, and the food was in the OMG category. 

Fishing the Marls on the West side of Abaco Island is always a special treat: think of hundreds of miles of mangrove coastline for bonefish habitat, decent shelter from the wind most days, and 12-24 inch deep water for good visibility.  We’ve fished the Marls before, staying previously at the renown Abaco Lodge, unfortunately now completely destroyed by Hurricane Dorian.  So where else to stay on Abaco now?  My wife Tana had only three criteria: A) we still had to fish the Marls, B) the guides had to be excellent, and, C) the lodge/food first class.  The Delphi Lodge fit all three, and in all seriousness, was probably the nicest bonefish lodge we have visited in the Caribbean.  The 8 rooms are tastefully decorated, with broad hardwood floors and high ceilings, beds with thick duvets, each room with its own ocean view of Rolling Harbour Cove (where I surf casted for bonefish in the 30 minutes before our taxi arrived, hooked two, landed one).  The great main room looks like something out of a Southern plantation, with 30 ft ceilings and a wrap around porch, and more ocean views.  The staff members are super attentive.  But the food, ah, incredible.   Each dinner started w appetizers such as conch fritters, or eggplant dip, followed by a meat/fish choice; last night was rack of lamb vs trigger fish, both delicious. Followed by gourmet deserts.  And their homemade bread was out of this world.

Fish some of the most varied, productive and least pressured flats in the Bahamas.
