The Variety of different flats environments makes Grand Bahama very special, from the Unique dark hard mud bottom, to course sand islands, muddy creeks, grass flats to the white sands of the ocean side. Each type of bottom structure in turn brings a different set of opportunities. The soft presentations and finesse needed for the ocean side flats, contrast to the concentration and teamwork need to catch the harder to see fish on the Northside.
Ocean side flats
The shorelines vary from shallow angle to deeper drop offers, great for the larger Bonefish and Permit that wander in and out with the tide. These fish are often more solitary and provide a hunting style of fishing that a fly rod was designed for.

With larger tide phases we are often asked what is the best tide? The simple answer is, the best tide is when its sunny and a 10-15mph wind. Due to the topography of the island there is a 3hr tide difference between the North and the South of the island. The Northside, our main fishery also varies up to 2hrs depending on where you are fishing. This doesn't also factor wind direction or strength. The reality is there is always opportunities.
