Abaco Lodge is located on the Marls side of Great Abaco Island, in the Bahamas. This area is known as the “Marls of Abaco.” It has a vast expanse of prime, wilderness Bonefish. This destination has long been known by well-travelled bone fishermen as one of the most unique and productive fisheries in the Bahamas.
Abaco has more than 400 square miles of flats; none better known than the Marls on the western side of the island. Abaco Lodge is centrally located directly on the Marl side of the island with access to them all. For twenty miles, the average depth is 4ft, a Bone fisherman couldn’t ask for a better backyard.
It would take a lifetime to fish the entire Marls alone but Abaco also offers some incredible fishing on the eastern ocean side of the island. The Bonefish on the Marls average 4-6 pounds with plenty of shots at bigger fish. The ocean side flats offer opportunities at some of the largest Bonefish in the Bahamas, but they are incredible wary creatures. Although primarily a Bone fishery, Abaco offers occasional shots at Permit and Tarpon so we recommend you bring the appropriate tackle just in case.
The guides are highly professional and more than meet the high standards of the lodge operation. They are also commercial fishermen for Lobster and Conch in the offseason and as such they know these waters inside out.
They understand the effect of the tides and know where to go under different weather conditions. They also know the honey holes where a Permit, Snook or Tarpon can be found, and this can be a nice addition to Bonefish fishing.
