Bahamas is a fishing heaven

For deep sea fishing enthusiasts, Bahamas offers one of the best fishing holidays in the world. There are so many species of fish known around the beautiful island. This is deep sea fishing at it’s best. Species likely to be caught on a deep sea fishing trip would include Shark, Barracuda, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mackerel, Yellow Fin Tuna and many other dwellers in the unknown deep.

Yellow Fin Tuna start arriving off the North and West sides of Bahamas during late February, early March and their migration through the Bahamas continues until late August. This is hottest big-game fishing time. Massive schools of Yellow Fin Tuna ranging in size from 20 to 80 lbs. migrate through the Bahamas on their way north to the Gulf Stream. They are located by looking for excited birds congregating, then diving into the ocean, feeding off the bait fish forced to the surface by the schools of feeding Tuna.

The spring and summer run of Yellow Fin Tuna. Pound for pound, they are some of the hardest fighters that swim the ocean. Indeed, Yellow Fin Tuna are true heavy weights bursting with severe strength. They are a tough fighting fish with a fast recovery rate and will fight you until they are boated. They will mix deep dives with long, fast runs to test both you and your tackle. Let’s not forget the plentiful Black Fin and the Skipjack Tuna. Although they are the feeders for all the big game fish, catching 5 to 20 pounders on light tackle is sheer luck..

When you go sport fishing for big game in Bahamas, each fishing day is different. You never really know what will strike your baits when you go deep-sea fishing. The ocean is just one difficult body of water to predict and the occupants in it are just the same. Bahamas is a fishing heaven.
