Yellow Tail

Get the ultimate Bahamas fishing experience with Yellow Tail. Out in the heart of the Atlantic, the deep waters are a mere stone’s throw away, meaning you’ll have your fill of monster pelagic fish to target year round!

Captain Lynden Mackey is a local to these shores and has been fishing since he can remember. He began working as a first mate before making it to the rank of captain. He has over 10 years of experience fishing these waters and knows exactly what it takes to land the biggest fish out there.

Hop aboard the 34’ Hatteras commercial fishing vessel. This purpose-built boat has everything you need for a productive day on the water. Make yourself at home in the air-conditioned cabin that comes fitted with a kitchen, bunk, and private toilet. Bring your own snacks and drinks aboard and away you go!

When it comes to fishing, she’s a professional outfit. Boasting downriggers and outriggers, you’ll get to troll a wide range of water to land all kinds of fish. Enjoy the stunning, peaceful surroundings before leaping into action at the sound of the screeching reels. When it’s “fish on,” you’ll grab the rod and settle into the fighting chair to do battle with the beast on the end of your line.

Expect the fight of your life offshore as Marlin leap out of the water to escape your clutches. Mahi Mahi and Tuna won’t give up easily, either, so make sure to bring your A-game to fill the boat with these delicious creatures. Get ready for some heavy lifting as you target monster Snappers and Groupers along the reefs and islands, before heading home with a tasty treat.

Your captain or first mate will clean and fillet your catch when you get back to shore, so you’ll be ready to feast right away. Get in touch to let Capt. Lynden know if you’d like to go snorkeling or spearfishing and he’ll even provide the gear for that. Everything you could possibly want out of a fishing trip awaits with Yellow Tail. Come aboard and get the pulses racing!
