Fishing Info & Guides
Sitting at the very edge of The Stream, the two small islands that makeup Bimini are perfectly located for easy access to the tropical current, which acts as both a highway for migrating fish carrying abundant food to the local fish, allowing them to grow to record size (more than 50 record-setting catches have been made in the waters around Bimini). And it’s not just the deep water over the edge of the drop-off that offers angling opportunities: Bimini’s flats are home to the fly fisherman’s favorite prey, bonefish and permit, and local wrecks hold big grouper and schools of tasty snapper. From the back bay to the deep drop-off, Bimini earns its title as the sportfishing capital of the world.
Anglers will find great fishing around Bimini year-round, but certain seasons are prime for specific game fish. Winter is when you’ve got the best shot at mackerel and wahoo, those bluewater beauties that have the strength of a sailfish, the teeth of a barracuda and the speed of a surface-to-air missile. You’ll want to have the fighting chair rigged and ready in spring and summer for blue and white marlin, sailfish, dolphin (mahi-mahi) and bluefin tuna. Though the fishing for them is good all year, the summer months, when the water is calmest, is the best time set up over the wrecks and reefs for grouper, snapper and barracuda. On the flats, summer is also when the permit is on the hunt around Bimini. Bonefishing for these silver streaks of lightning is excellent all year long.
