Tailin’ Boner Charters is owned and operated by Captain Muff Roberts who specializes in offering a first-class fishing experience. Capt. Muff has been in the fishing and boating industry for over 25 years, fishing all around the world. He prides himself on providing guests with a high-quality charter experience, complete with a well-maintained vessel.

“Tailin’ Boner,” a 29’ Luhrs, features an air-conditioned cabin, bathroom with shower, generator, 2 bunks that also serve as a couch. There’s a table, refrigerator, microwave, and it’s spacious enough to accommodate as many as 5 fishermen on board. It’s equipped with a conventional range of marine electronics and navigational gear, such as GPS, fishfinder, spot tracer, radio, as well as satellite radio and a 30’ flat-screen TV for your enjoyment.

Grand Bahama is a great place to catch some of the world’s most popular game fish species. With a massive drop-off just off the southern shore, from 100 to thousands of feet deep, you won’t have to travel far. Depending on the season, Capt. Muff will help you catch Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Barracuda, Snapper, and a variety of other species frequenting the area. He’ll supply you with all the fishing gear for the trip, along with bait, drinks, and a good time.

Capt. Muff will guide and educate you on the best technique for catching each species and will happily clean and fillet your catch and recommend a restaurant that will prepare your catch for a reduced price. Sportfishing is a rare and valuable tourism resource, so the Government of the Bahamas encourages sustainable fishing practices. Tailin’ Boner Charters is committed to conservation, so all Billfish species including Swordfish, Sailfish, and Marlin, are released.

Explore the wonderful waters under the Bahamian sun with Tailin’ Boner Charters, and have a fishing adventure to remember!
