Fishing in the Bahama's

4 posts in this topic

I've got a friend who is going to be in the Bahama's in a couple weeks and wants to do a little fishing while he is down there. He's tried calling the tourist people down there, but they've just been sending him in circles, so I offered to post his questions on here. First off, are there any kinds of licenses needed to fish the ocean (mostly from shore I think)? Also, is it legal to use a cast net catch baitfish? Any help would be useful. Thanks

First, which island?

Second, consider doing a search for your topic. There has been some good information already posted about deep sea fishing, near shore fishing, and fly-fishing for bonefish in the Bahamas.

Good luck to your friend.

I probably should have realized knowing the island would be important. He will be staying on San Salvador. I did a search and did find a handful of good posts with fishing stories and what to bring, but didn't find anything on laws.

Thanks

Well, my experience was that there wasn't any licenses to speak of. He might want to check with guides or resorts. Sounds like he'll be in the middle of some pretty good fishing if he can find someone to take him out.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
