Abaco Lodge, Bahamas

Abaco has more than 400 square miles of flats, none better known than the Marls on the Western side of the Island.

Abaco offers some incredible fishing and for some 20 miles the average depth of the flats is four feet. Cherokee Sound, the Bight of Robinson and Snake Cay are minutes from the lodge and offer opportunities at challenging bonefish. With so many options at Abaco it is very rare to miss a day of fishing due to weather.

The majority of the fishing is from the flats boats but there are places to wade should you prefer. The guides are all local and know the area incredibly well. The Maverick flats boats are extremely comfortable with padded seats, a back rest and leaning bar on the front. The bonefish on the Marls average 2 to 4 pounds with the occasional shot at bigger fish. The ocean side flats, which require a short drive to a launch point, offer chances of some of the largest bonefish in The Bahamas but they are incredibly wary. Abaco is primarily a bonefishery but occasional shots at permit, tarpon and jacks may arise.

In addition to wonderful flats fishing Abaco has incredible blue water fishing. You can book this at the Lodge or prior to your arrival to ensure you secure one of the best captains. Depending on the season you can fish for marlin, sailfish, dorado, wahoo and tuna.


The lodge sits on a rocky shoreline of the Marls just north of Marsh Harbour, the principal town of Abaco.

The lodge has seven guest rooms each equipped with queen sized bed and en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge has a fully stocked bar, dining and indoor seating area, comfortable sofas on the veranda, outside fire pit and also a small pool. The food here is fantastic and wonderfully varied.

You can tie flies at Abaco Lodge as all of the equipment is in the bar area. If you forget anything there is a fully stocked shop with rods and reels a selection of flies and clothing.

If you are travelling with a non-fishing guest who is happy to relax and read a book by the pool and take a visit to the local town of Marsh Harbour then this is a great place to stay.
