The Bahamas are known for some of the best fishing in the world, and the island of Grand Bahama is no exception. North Riding Point Club has access to the best bonefishing flats on both the north and south shores of Grand Bahama. The north shore of Grand Bahama has the largest bonefish habitat, comprising several hundred square miles of flats, inlets, and mangrove-covered cays literally teeming with large, wild bonefish. It is not uncommon to see dozens, if not hundreds, of fish in a single day.
Grand Bahama is also the place to catch large bonefish - those trophy fish we all dream about - in excess of 10 pounds. Fish in the 10 - 12 pound range are fairly common. in March 2007 a record bonefih of 16 lbs was caught, one of our guests teetered on the brink of a new world record by landing a 15+ pound bonefish! We estimate the average size of landed bonefish to be around 5 - 6 pounds - somewhat larger than the average you will find on most other bonefish flats around the world.
NRPC has recently upgraded to Hell's Bay skiffs powered by 90hp 4-stroke engines. Guides and guests alike are raving about the new boats! Guides typically pole anglers to get them on fish, but there are many opportunities to wade the flats, as well. The flats vary in nature; many exhibit a soft marl or mud bottom, while others support turtle grass, and still others consist of firm, white sand. In all, multiple species of shrimp, crabs, and other bonefish prey are plentiful.
