Living in Florida we are fortunate enough to live close to so many different amazing places. One being the Bahamas, which is a world-renowned fishing destination. The clear, warm waters are the perfect environment for fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. And because the Bahamas are so close to Florida, fisherman and boaters alike can easily reach them in just a couple of hours.

Planning

If you are planning a fishing trip to the Bahamas from Florida, there are a few things you need to know. First, you will need to get a fishing license from the Bahamas Department of Marine Resources. You can do this online or at the Department's office in Nassau.

Second, you will need to decide where your fishing excursion will be because the Bahamas is home to hundreds of islands and cays, each with its own unique fishing grounds. Some of the most popular spots include Bimini, Grand Bahama, and the Exumas.

Third, you will need the right boat. If you are not an experienced boater, you may want to hire a charter boat. This is a great way to ensure that you have the right equipment and the necessary expertise to fish in the Bahamas.

Finally, you will need to pack your gear. In addition to your fishing rods and reels, you will also need to pack sunscreen, sunglasses, a phone, safety gear, and plenty of food and water.

Once you are all set, it is time to head out to sea and start fishing! The Bahamas is truly world-class fishing at its finest, and being less than one hundred miles away from the nearest islands means you will be there in no time at all.

Here are the best fishing spots in the Bahamas and some of the fish you can find there.

Bimini

Wahoo and Mahi Mahi.

Grand Bahama

Blue marlin, White Marlin, and Sailfish.

The Exumas

Bonefish, Snapper, and Grouper.

When is the best time to fish in the Bahamas?

The best time to fish in the Bahamas depends on the species of fish you are targeting. For example, Mahi Mahi are most active during the spring, while Wahoo are most active during the winter.

In conclusion, fishing in the Bahamas out of Florida offers fishermen and boaters an exceptional opportunity to experience one of the world's top fishing destinations. With its warm, crystal-clear waters that are home to a variety of fish species, the Bahamas provides a thrilling and rewarding fishing adventure. Whether you choose to explore popular spots like Bimini, Grand Bahama, or the Exumas, you are sure to be captivated by the beauty and excitement of fishing in this tropical paradise.
