More than a few anglers come to Grand Bahama Island expressly hoping to “catch the big one,” and not many leave disappointed. The tropical waters surrounding the island are home to some of the best game fish on Earth. Among the well honored fighters lurking offshore are white and blue marlin, yellow-fin and blue-fin tuna, barracuda, king fish, Wahoo, bonito, and dolphin (not the “Flipper” kind, but a fish with the same name). In Freeport/Lucaya, there are plenty of outfitters at the marinas who are more than happy to lead you right to them for a reasonable price. 

While it is a well-known fact that most game fish like warm tropical waters, what is less known is that one of the world's best game fish – the bonefish – not only likes the watersGrand Bahama of Grand Bahama Island, but is more at home there than anywhere else in the world. The flats off Deep Water Cay, in the East, are praised year after year by fishing writers from around the globe.

Fly-fishing, particularly for bonefish, is gaining popularity on Grand Bahama Island and throughout The Islands of The Bahamas. Next to golf, it is the fastest growing sport. The best time to go fishing in The Bahamas is between April and September, though winter is good too.

The Annual Bahamas Nationals Bonefishing Championship, held in July, features the best in the Islands of The Bahamas competing for the coveted title of Bahamas champion. Competitions for the individual island winners are held between March and June.
