Fishing in the Bahamas

The waters off Long Island have some of the Bahamas’ finest saltwater fishing. A variety of sport fish are caught year round. Whether you wade out to the shallow tidal flats, fish with your family over the nearby reefs, or take a deep sea expedition, the fishing at Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort is often regarded as the highlight activity of a visit to Long Island.

Hovering over crystal clear water eight to twenty-four inches deep, you can spend hours casting into schools of Bonefish visible below. You’ll be amazed by the strength and stamina of the scrappy Bonefish — pound for pound the strongest fighting fish in the world!

For a deep sea adventure, fishing excursions are available with experienced, professional guides.

Using ballyhoo, small baitfish and feather hoochies, you’ll fish for trophy-sized beauties like White and Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Kingfish, Tuna, Shark, Dorado and Sailfish. Truly an unbelievable fishing experience.

For those looking for a more low-key family fishing adventure, a reef fishing excursion with legendary Captain Bert ‘You-Gotta-Hook-‘Em-to-Cook-‘Em’ Adderley puts you on the fish. From a comfortable cruiser, you’ll admire vast coral and rock reefs as your bait attracts Nassau Grouper, Yellowtail Snapper, Horse-eye Jacks, Amber Jacks, Trigger Fish, King Mackerel, Barracuda and Iron Head.

Both deep-sea and reef fishing excursions provide the opportunity to catch your own dinner! Not only will our legendary guides clean and fillet your catch, our culinary team will prepare it grilled, pan-fried or blackened (or all three!) in our oceanfront dining room. The freshest (and proudest!) seafood dinner imaginable.

As close to perfect as we every found – or imagined!
