The Bahama Islands offer anglers plenty of great spots to enjoy light tackle fishing. With an extensive reef system, plentiful shipwreck sites, and massive stretches of saltwater flats, the Bahamas is a light tackle enthusiast’s dream destination.
If you are visiting Nassau or Paradise Island, you do not want to miss your chance to enjoy some light tackle action at the extensive reef system or above the many wrecks in the region. The deep waters just off the reef bring all kinds of great predators to the reef and overgrown wrecks to feed. You can cast for a variety of snapper, jacks, grouper, barracuda, wahoo, and sharks, among other great game species.
If you are planning a stay at Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, you do not want to miss the chance to go fishing in the abundant saltwater flats. Depending on the season, you can cast your line after a number of fantastic sport fish, including tarpon, bonefish, and permit. Sometimes, our savvy captains can draw out some of the apex predators of the ocean, the sharks. Bull sharks, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, and blacktip reef sharks, among others can be hooked in these waters.
Light tackle fishing provides constant action for the angler. It is a great option for novice anglers because it usually involves shorter trips with more activity. Kids are especially delighted with the continuous activity associated with light tackle angling. Our experienced captains are happy to provide lessons and tips for anglers who are new to this exciting sport.
