What You Can Expect:

Guided bonefishing charters in the Bahamas have long been a popular and legendary pursuit. Bonefishing, and in particular fly fishing in Southern Abaco has been one of those closely guarded secrets passed on quietly from one fly enthusiast to another, hoping they wouldn't tell too many of their friends. Each day, with each new group of anglers, we learn more about why no one wanted to talk about the huge bonefish, the incredible numbers of permit and the legitimate shots at tarpon that are possible in Abaco.

The fishing grounds that surround our Lodge and the new town of Schooner Bay form six distinct zones each rich in a variety of species and large enough to support the entire lodge fleet if weather were to force all boats to fish in one zone. Only the most severe weather would cause a cancellation. Permit Each zone supports similar species yet each has a unique offering in both species and habitat. Bonefish, Permit, Mutton Snappers, Sharks, Barracuda, and Tarpon are among the species found in these waters and given the number and the size of the fish we observed makes the fishing at Schooner Bay simply world class.

The lodge boats are on trailers and can be launched at the Schooner Bay ramp or trailered to other locations within twenty minutes of Schooner Bay.

In the future we will be exploring the vast fishery of South Abaco and that will include days of exploratory fishing and mapping out the six zones that surround Schooner Bay. Also we will be fishing what we think are the best Permit grounds in the Bahamas, stalking silver tails on remote unfished flats and even breaking out the big sticks for our newly discovered fishery for silver kings. So come join us in flyfishing Abaco at our beautiful Lodge!

What To Expect Onboard:

Our philosophy on boats is another area where we had to re-evaluate what the other lodges have done and how we were going to give our angler the safest and best possible angling experience. Skiff Running One of the biggest complaints that we hear is that "that ride to and from the fishing beat us to death" especially with the move to smaller technical poling skiffs in the Bahamas. Our thinking is that our fishing area is more like the Keys and Key West with some areas of open water that you occasionally need to cross to get to good fishing. Also, fishing for larger bonefish, permit and tarpon in deeper water, we found that a larger boat was the best choice for us. Simply, it needed to span the swell, pole easily and keep us dry.

After much research and testing we made the move to a rather new and innovative boat builder in the industry, East Cape Skiffs. Located in Orlando Florida, the owners have committed themselves to using the latest technology and innovative thinking to build a skiff for each customer the way they want it. We didn't start out to buy an East Cape Skiff when we visited their factory but it became evident rather quickly that these boats could do what we wanted them to do....run in rough water, get us out of our narrow channels at low tide with a full load and still pole around on the low incoming flats when we got there.

We then added the new light weight Evinrude e-tech 90HP engine to help cut cost on expensive Bahamian fuel. For further comfort, the combination design team got together and came up with a new type of leaning post that includes a fold up seat for those times when you're on the bow and you need to rest your back or legs. We also have a the standard casting platform or just a clean deck if you want.

Rental Requirements

Fishing Policy

Our fishing policy is extremely varied and fishing as many of our "zones" as possible is our goal on every trip. Most fishing trips are 3 to 4 days of fishing and we plan our fishing days according to the direction of the wind and general conditions at the time and what forecasters are calling for in the future. There is no set schedule other than to try to fish all sectors when possible in order to give each angler an opportunity to experience everything southern Abaco has to offer. Our overall trip pricing reflects our expense to fish all of these areas and therefore returning to some of our more distant fishing grounds would incur an additional cost for fuel and oil only.

Deposit Info

A 25% deposit of the total package cost for each trip/angler is required upon booking to secure the reservation, the 10% of the total package cost for each trip/angler is non-refundable. Guides and dates cannot be held or reserved without a deposit. We reserves the right to charge a handling fee of $100 per person for date changes after the initial reservation has been made.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Upon cancellation, we will assess a $100.00 handling charge to all deposits and payments received. All cancellations must be given in writing/email to us.

Cancellations 30 days or less prior to start of trip: No refund or credit will be given.
