Wherever you are right now, odds are you’re having less fun that you would be if you were fishing in The Islands Of The Bahamas. Whether you’re a catch and release fisher or the kind who likes to clean ‘em and cook ‘em, you can find your perfect spot to soak up the sun and scoop a few swimmers out of the crystal clear waters in The Bahamas. From bonefishing and sport fishing to bigger game, the waters around the islands are full of a large variety of creatures waiting on the line. Let’s face it: with good friends and cooler of Kalik even if you don’t catch anything, it still doesn’t sound like a bad way to spend a day.
The most popular fishing style in The Bahamas is bonefishing, a catch and release activity that brings together skill, finesse and stealth like no other form of fishing. It is on the more physical end of the fishing spectrum and can be undertaken either by wading into the water or standing in a lightweight boat. The remote Out Islands Of The Bahamas – from The Abacos to, Andros, Cat Island and Bimini - with miles of pristine flats offer some of the best bonefishing spots in the world.,
Even though there is quite a large population of bonefish in waters surrounding the Out Islands, you still may want to engage the services of one of the local bonefishing guides to help you get accustomed to spotting and casting for the easily spooked shiny streaks.

Big Game Fishing
Of course, big game fishing can also be quite a physical sport, as the power struggle trying to reel in a large marlin or tuna can last for hours and easily cause you to break a sweat. From larger islands like Nassau and Grand Bahama Island to the smaller Out Islands, The Bahamas is ripe with world-class places to go searching for bigger game with selections from game fish, marlin, swordfish to barracuda. You’re likely to amuse yourself as you strain to stay in your chair and reel in a line with a creature twice your weight. But, there are few greater feelings of satisfaction than knowing you’ve bested one of the world’s most majestic beasts, and pulling out your hook to send him on his way back to the depths.
Naturally, there are regulations surround the sport of fishing in The Bahamas in order to protect the natural wildlife and provide enjoyment of future visitors. For example, the conch is a protected species, so visitors are limited to taking only six of the creatures (Don’t worry, there’s no limit on the amount of conch fritters you can eat at a local restaurant). Certain species may only be removed and consumed if they are below a certain weight. Check out the full list of regulations, including requirements for permits if you intend to drive your own boat to The Bahamas.
