The lodges of the Bahamas are legendary for their outstanding fly-fishing tips for bonefish. The vast network of islands offers locations both for large numbers of bones as well as areas to target trophy bones over 8 lbs. Other flats species such as permit and tarpon are also available based on season and location. The Bahamas are just off of the coast of Florida and an easy flight away that allows for both longer stays and a short trip.
The prime time booking a fly-fishing lodge in the Bahamas is November through June. Winter months can produce more unstable weather patterns which can affect the flats. November and December are considered the trophy bonefish months and offer your best chance at huge bones that have seen little pressure. February-June are considered the peak months and expect to book well in advance to get a spot at one of the top lodges.
