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.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
