Locky and Sons Charter Service

Locky and Sons Charter Service offers a range of island adventures in the warm, clean waters around Nassau. The Bahamas are a paradise for avid fisherfolk and non-anglers alike, with sandy beaches spilling into deep waters full of incredible fish. Captain Ednie has been fishing here his entire life and knows all the tricks for getting the most out of this watery paradise.

Spend the day aboard “La Familia De Fe”, a 46’ Post Fisherman. She has room for up to 16 people, and everyone can have a go at fishing if they want to. If not, there are plenty of luxuries aboard to keep you happy all day long!

The boat boasts a spacious, air-conditioned interior with an enclosed bathroom, a shower, a full galley, and plenty of room to relax in the cool. Step out on deck, and you have a tall flybridge to take in the view and a large sun deck to enjoy the Bahamas’ famously-warm weather.

And while everyone else is doing that, you can enjoy world-class angling! The boat has a full battery of marine electronics to pinpoint the best fishing spots and track the biggest fish. She has outriggers for perfect trolling spreads, and a livewell to keep your bait fresh if you’re using it.

You have a range of techniques to try out on your day. Drop your lines into the water to troll, bottom fish, and drift fish. Up for more action? Jump into the water to snorkel and spearfish with Hawaiian slings! This technique is for adults only, and you will be accompanied by an expert diver to make sure you fish in safety. One diver can go with four anglers, and an additional diver can join for the day with prior notice

All Locky and Sons Charter Service trips come with tackle, lures, licenses, and a range of refreshments to keep you happy. Just bring any alcohol you want for the day, as well as sunscreen, sunglasses, and other personal items, and step aboard for a great day on the water, whatever that means to you.

Captain Vanshow,"Ednie" Lockhart has been fishing in the Bahamas his entire life, and never gets bored of this tropical paradise. Growing up on an island, the water was always a big part of his life, and running charters was an obvious choice for him. He loves meeting new people, and is great at helping them catch big fish, so why would he do anything else?
