Grand Bahama Offshore Fishing Forecast

The weather has been holding back our season and there seems to be no end in sight. Blackfin tuna are here in numbers and many boats have been enjoying day-long action trolling for these rugged fighters. Small black feathers have been very successful on temperature breaks. Dolphin have been gracing the fish boxes of most boats and the sizes are much larger than off the Florida coast.

As this forecast goes to print, it is two weeks until the lobster season opens and from what I have observed, this will be a great year to get your dive gear on and enjoy the uncrowded, plentiful Little Bahama Bank. There is no comparison between the Florida crowds and hassles, and the Bahama experience. Deep dropping has been the standard bearer this month.
