Location: In the heart of Grand Bahama’s Lucayan Marina.
Fishery: You’ll be fishing a world-class bonefish destination with expansive flats ranging from grass, to white sand to light coral and marl bottoms. The stuff bonefish love. You’ll mostly fish from a Maverick Mirage with a professional Bahamian guide. The right conditions may lead to a wading session for tailers. From schools of little banana bones to giant solo cruisers this incredible fishery provides shots that dreams are made of.
Accomodations: You’ll be staying at the Pelican Bay resort which has top-notch luxurious amenities and service. Rooms include a private balcony that overlooks the marina as well as satellite TV, direct-dial phone, refrigerator, and in-room coffee maker.
