The flats, reefs and steep drop-offs that surround The Bahamas attract a variety of fish and fishermen. The bonefish among the flats draw fly fishermen and spin casters looking for a fresh challenge. The reefs lure large fish and extremely skilled, patient anglers. And the deep waters of the Atlantic, home to prized big-game fish, attract fishermen who prefer the heaviest of heavy-gauge lines.
For the best bonefishing, head for Andros, dubbed "the bonefish capital of the world", Exuma and Abaco, but these wily creatures also inhabit the shallow waters of the mud flats around many of the islands.
With its prime location, slap-bang in the middle of the Gulf Stream, Bimini is regarded as the big game fishing capital of the world, where you can "go for the big one" and set new records in deep waters teeming with swordfish, marlin, tarpon and tuna.
Good sport fishing can also be found around Grand Bahama Island and Exuma, where huge numbers of large wahoo, marlin and sailfish can be wrestled from the deeper waters of the Exuma Sound, which drops to a staggering 6,000ft.
If you don't fancy going so far out of your depth, Exuma's 150 square km of flats are home to bonefish, snapper, lobster and grouper. And you can always enjoy some impressive reef fishing around Nassau/Paradise Island and Grand Bahama Island.
