Abaco Bill fishing, will you need a bigger boat?
Whether it’s the waiting game of hunting the elusive bone fish or the wrestling match that can come with catching a dolphin or marlin, Abaco – around 150 miles off the coast of Fort Lauderdale – caters to all types of bill fishing thrill seekers.
While for some the beaches and turquoise seas represent the perfect chance to sit back and do nothing whatsoever in the most picturesque scenery imaginable, for others the waters of Abaco represent a competitive playground.
Abaconians know it too. There’s a multitude of local fishing charters that can be hired, run by expert skippers who know where to find the fish; whether it’s in the sandy flats or the deep sea.
Among the varieties of big game fishing that can be done in Abaco are Wahoo, Kingfish, Dolphin and Blue Marlin, along with Bonefish, Sailfish, Tuna and Grouper.
The islands are home to a number of exciting big game fishing tournaments. The record for the biggest Blue Marlin in The Bahamas was set off the stunning island of Treasure Cay, with its world famed powder-sand beach.
Abaco is one of the most popular destinations for those seeking second homes in The Bahamas and today has a significant community of expats who have become part of the fabric of local life.
