Hunter Charters - 38’ Hatteras

Bay Shore Marina, E Bay St
Nassau, Bahamas

Captain Paul Smith is the owner and operator of Hunter Charters, offering sport fishing, bottom and light tackle fishing, as well as snorkeling excursions in Nassau, Bahamas for over 10 years now. Joined on his mission to provide visiting anglers with a remarkable charter service by his son, Paul Smith Jr (also one of the Captains), the Hunter Charters team is committed to using their experience and knowledge of the local waters to make sure their guests’ fishing trip ends up a successful one.

Captain Paul Smith has fished the Nassau area for more than 30 years, having spent the last 10 growing his fishing charter fleet, that is now comprised of 4 vessels. His boat, the Mornin’ Ride, is a 38’ Hatteras fit for all types of fishing, with a maximum passenger capacity of 7 anglers per trip. The boat is fully air-conditioned and features a toilet and shower on board, rigged with the standard selection of charter electronics and navigational equipment, including GPS, radio, fish finder, as well as a multimedia system. There’s also a single fighting chair among the boat’s amenities, to help anglers maximize their chances of reeling in any larger fish that may strike their bait.

Captain Pablo and his crew welcome you aboard the Mornin’ Ride. They will provide you with all of the fishing equipment your group requires, along with the artificial bait for the trip, as you troll the deep waters and run the reefs in pursuit of common species including the likes of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper as well as a variety of others, depending on the season. Both drinks and fishing licenses are included in the trip price and will be provided by the Captain. Daily private 4, 6 and 8 hour trips are made available for your consideration.

After two hours of fishing, Capitan JP found a great amount of birds, which we followed for around five hours.  Very successful trip.

We went when it was not he big fish fishing season however the crew suggested us to head to a reef. We did and we probably caught 20 fish so it was a great time. Landed a 3 foot Barracuda and that was a great fight! The crew kept everything clean and even when a storm came in they kept right on baiting hooks and helping us reel them in! Great time to be had!!!
