Fishing at H20 Bonefishing (Grand Bahama)

The variety of different flats environments makes Grand Bahama a very special fishery. On Grand Bahama, guests get to fish unique dark hard mud bottom flats, to course sand islands, muddy creeks, grass flats and also the white sands of the ocean side.  Each flat structure creates unique and different opportunities.  You will need to work as a team with your guide to ensure success, but H20 Bonefishing has that covered. The guides will talk you through the soft presentations and finesse needed for the ocean side flats,  and work closely and help put you onto the more technical Northside fish.

The Flats


A variety of bottom with it brings a variety of fish and size. It is often observed that bonefish of the same size will stick together.  This is not the case on Grand Bahama. This means you will often see 1lb bonefish following 10lb bonefish, and also permit and bonefish together.  This means you need to be prepared for whatever may swim past.


Due to the topography of the island, there is a 3hr tide difference between the North and South of the island.  The Northside is the traditional fishery at H20 Bonefishing and regardless of wind or tide there will always be opportunities at bonefish.


On the outside keys most of the fishing is done from the boat with some wading opportunities. Wading does depend on tide phase and conditions, so please let us know if this is your main fishing agenda. Over the years we have learned that it is always the best bet to remain mobile, to help cover the full fishery and for the changing conditions.

Fly Tackle

We recommend 9ft, 8-9wt. rods. An 8wt rod will suffice in most conditions except when the big bonefish are on the prowl. The 8wt is preferred when a long cast is required, or when the wind dictates. To be successful at H20 Bonefishing you’ll be making casts of 50 feet with a long leader and an unweighted fly.
It is imperative that you bring a great reel with a smooth drag. Bonefish will scream off into your backing and reels should have the capacity to hold a weight forward floating line and 150 yards of 20lb backing.
Weight-forward bonefishing lines should be paired off with fluorocarbon leaders.
