Your Bahamas Bonefishing Mission starts here

The Fishing

The Marls encompass a huge area of flats on the west side of Abaco. For twenty miles the average depth is four feet. The lodge is centrally located directly on the Marls side of the island with access to them all directly from the lodge dock. This location gives our guests easy access to the flats, while providing many sheltered locations irrespective of wind direction. The majority of the fishing is done from the boat but wading opportunities exist. Runs to the flats vary from 10 to 45 minutes. Cherokee Sound, the Bight of Robinson and Snake Cay are minutes from the lodge and offer opportunities at incredible, challenging Bonefish. The flats on the ocean side require only a short drive. The bonefish on the Marls average 2-4 lb., with the occasional shot at bigger fish. The ocean side flats offer opportunities at some of the largest bonefish in the Bahamas, but they are incredibly wary creatures. The Bahamas is primarily composed of bone-fisheries, and Abaco is no different. There are the occasional shots at Permit, Tarpon, ‘Cudas, Jacks, and sharks. We recommend you bring the appropriate tackle just in case. There is nothing quite as frustrating as seeing a 20 lb Permit tailing, or the juvenile Tarpon cruising the flat while not having the right gear set up.

Abaco Lodge sits on the rocky shoreline of the Marls, on the west side of Abaco. Here you can enjoy a cold Kalik in the pool as you watch the sun set, after a day of fishing. Sharing fishing stories by the ocean side fire pit is a great way to spend the evenings. The lodge consists of ten air conditioned private rooms, with private bathing rooms, a fully stocked bar, pool, sitting room, an outside fire pit, and plenty of patio space. You can fish all day and not miss a beat of what is going on at home. Computer with high speed internet is available, as well as a wireless connection. Phone service is available and the lodge has a flat screen television for all the games. The lodge’s main bar is fully stocked with spirits, cold beer, soft drinks, plenty of ice, and mixers for cocktails. Delicious fresh local produce, specializing on fresh fish (Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Grouper, and Snapper), conch, and lobster is served. The chef bakes bread, pastries, and cookies daily. The coffee is made from freshly ground beans and will be waiting at the buffet. Breakfast will be cooked to order and a lunch menu allows you to choose the content of the boat coolers. The chef uses as much local seafood as possible. Expect dinners of lobster, conch, and whatever fish are in season.

Getting there

Unlike the majority of other islands in the Bahamas it is possible to fly directly to Marsh Harbour from the U.S. mainland. While it is also possible to fly via Nassau, a direct flight from Florida is by far the easiest. On arrival at Marsh Harbour you will be met by a lodge representative, who will transfer you to the lodge. It is a short 10 minute drive and the cost is included in the package.
