Grand Bahama Offshore Fishing Forecast – December 2012
Grand Bahama Island may be the Bahamas “Industrial Island” but it is none-the-less a great “Fishing Island”. Despite Sandy, offshore fishing has stayed strong and December should be no exception. November proved strong for large dolphin, some in the 40 to 50 pound range. There is a “peanut” season but it sure is not now! There are many reports of king mackerel catches. These fish are averaging in the 15 to 25 pound range. What is working on both the dolphin and kings is a trolled ballyhoo with bright skirts. Most of this reported action has been on the south side of the island averaging 5 to 15 miles offshore. For those anglers still hoping for some tuna, one must make the effort to head out to approximately 25 miles to Tuna Canyon. There has not been a lot of bird action, so finding them can be a little difficult. Of course it goes without saying that the wahoo bite is definitely on from one end of the island to the other. For bottom fishing fans there is plenty of grouper and yellowtail.
December will certainly be “looking good”.
