August brought a good yellowfin bite to Grand Bahama offshore waters. This bite should continue into September. Seas should remain calm during this transitional month, unless tropical weather “interrupts” the pattern.

Our Bahamas fishing guides remind you to look for birds when seeking tuna. When you find the birds never run in or through them. Work some cut bait into the current then free spool a piece of squid back with the rest of your chum. Having patience with this technique should give you a big time payoff.

Vertical jigging is recommended while you wait for the bigger fish to find you. Deep dropping at this time of the year is also productive. Snowy grouper, queen snapper and more will keep your lines tight.

Because Grand Bahama Island (and particularly West End) is one of the most northern points in the Bahamas, it will be the first to start to feel the transition from summer to fall.

Expect the mahi bite to heat up as October nears.
