The waters surrounding The Abaco Club are teeming with world-class opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. Trophy bonefish, permit and tarpon fishing is a serious sport in these parts, and a particular favorite with both club members and visitors, who take to the mangrove flats for one of the most exciting saltwater flats fly fishing in the world. Bonefish are wary adversaries—and real fighters. You’ll need to be patient, and cunning, to land them. But when you do, it’s exhilarating. The Abaco Club is partnered with Blackfly Lodge, the area’s premier fishing guide, and offers unrivaled access to all Blackfly has to offer.
In deeper water, trolling in the 8’-20’ depths of the Sea of Abaco can net you grouper, wahoo, snapper, triggerfish, yellowtail and dolphin fish. Outside the barrier reef in The Atlantic Ocean proper, even bigger game awaits. Sport-fishermen from around the world descend on these deeper waters in search of mahi mahi, blue marlin, sailfish and blackfin and yellowfin tuna. Boats with impressive arrays of outriggers will be seen here, all intent on zeroing in on a big catch.
The Club Concierge can recommend guides and also assist with boat rentals for those interested in fishing while at the club.
