West End, Bahamas

Background
The fishing around West End is the best in Grand Bahama Island. I loved fishing since I was old enough to throw a line in the water. I enjoy fishing with experts and novices who want to experience the thrill of catching fish.
Techniques
Trolling is the preferred way to fish, using ballyhoo and artificial lures to attract grouper, yellow-tail, mutton snapper and mackerel. Bottom fishing the old fashion Bahamian method is a great way to learn about the culture of native fishing.

Went fishing on Tuesday, July 3, 2018

It doesn’t get any better than this!  Start the day reeling in fish after fish…. trolling, bottom fishing and hand-lining using traditional Bahamian techniques.  Then swim and feed the stingrays and sharks… and snorkel the shipwrecks, then more fishing to bring home dinner.  Learn from Captain Keith’s years of experience and expertise!  This trip is a must when visiting the West End on Grand Bahama!

Thank you Captain Keith for a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the family!
