Grand Bahama bonefish advice

First of all, hello all. I'm new here and came here looking for some advice on a bonefish guide. I am going to take the family to Grand Bahama Island (Freeport) in April. We will be staying at the Sheraton at Our Lacaya. I want to do some bonefishing while I am there and I am looking for some suggestions. I have done some searches and a little research, but there is an awful lot to sort through. Anybody have any first hand experience?

Thanks,

Jorge

I had a very good trip with Capt Phil two years ago...there are quite a few guides that will provide shuttle from that hotel to the East End of the island. Fishing was top notch.

Hi Jorge
I've had a few fishing trips to Grand Bahama and have stayed at a couple of hotels around Lucaya.
There are a number of guides around there, some are very good.
You can get more info from one of the specialist fishing travel companies.
I can't say who I recommend on this board because they are not sponsors but if you want further info send me a PM.

Pete

PS Merry Christmas

The Pinder brothers, Jeffrey, William, and David, Jr. are often considered the top guides on Grand Bahama. I'm sure there are more, but these guys have an outstanding reputation. Someone told me that they aligned themselves with one of the hotels in that area and may not be as available to be booked independently as before. I can't confirm that, but it shouldnt take too much time to establish it as fact or not. Good luck--and have a great trip.

I have been following this with interest since GB has good potential for a couples conclave - something for the spouses as well as the bonefishers.

I've heard there are three main areas - the east end (i.e. McLeans town), the northern flats (Water Cay) and the west end. I got the impression DIY was easiest on the west end as the guides focus on the east end and northern flats.

It would be a trip that combined recruitment of area guides as well as DIY in between, since getting away for the whole day every day is difficult in a couples situation.

I've fished with them all . . . William's no longer guiding, but brother Joseph still is along with David, Jr and Jeffrey. They book their sports into the Lighthouse Point section of Our Lucaya.
