Grand Bahama Inshore Fishing Forecast – March 2011

The east end of Grand Bahama Island offers a truly out-island experience for the inshore fishing enthusiast. There are literally miles and miles of pristine flats and countless cays and smaller islands to explore. One of the advantages of heading out to McLean’s Town, is that from that point it is a relatively easy reach to the many of these smaller cays in northern Abaco such as Carters Cays, and the smaller islets and cays that almost form a bridge from the west end of Little Abaco Island to the east end of Grand Bahama Island. This is virgin bonefishing territory! March should bring excellent fishing with the fish typically in the 3-to-10-pound range. Natural baits including shrimp, crab and snails are consistent producers. With regards to artificial baits, I have developed a Capt. Perry Special. You cannot buy this fly in any store. It is my own secret weapon my clients have the opportunity to use on a trip. Once the trip is over, the fly is returned. Clients rave about its effectiveness! Also, tarpon and permit sightings have occurred during the latter part of February and should increase through March.  Tarpon are in the 30-to-60-pound range. This will add some excitement to your trip!  Fish East End, Grand Bahama soon for a great fishing adventure.
