Fishing at South Eleuthera, The Bahamas
The fishing out of Davis Harbour Marina is truly world-class, with excellent opportunities to catch yellow and blackfin tuna, wahoo up to 95 pounds, mahi-mahi, sailfish, and blue and white marlin. If requested we can do bottom or reef fishing as well.
Typically we utilize either Underdog or Potcake for deep sea fishing, with either half day or full day charters. We provide rods and reels, Shimano TLD II 50’s with 80# high vis mono and 195# wire leaders (to avoid losing wahoo), bait, ice, drinking water and captain with mate. If doing a full day charter we will arrange for lunch, perhaps some fresh conch salad? If doing a half day charter, we have plenty of cooler space so feel free to bring whatever else you might enjoy along with the fishing experience.
We run Bait Masters ballyhoo for bait, and typically run at least one cedar plug. Got a favorite lure or a new hot bait, bring it along and we will be happy to try it out. But remember, as Captain Daryl will tell you, it’s called fishing not catching--we will do our best to put you on some nice fish, but once hooked up it’s up to the fisherman.
We offer half-day fishing charters daily, leaving the dock at 8:30 am and returning at 12:30 pm, or leaving at 1:30 pm and returning at 5:30 pm. If we do not have a second half-day charter booked on the day you would like to fish for a half-day, and you would like to leave later or earlier, just ask and we will try to accommodate your request.
If, on the other hand, not all of the family truly enjoys a full day of fishing, we can mix some fishing with a noon day swim and lunch or perhaps some fishing and some snorkeling. The entire shoreline out of Davis Harbour offers lots of beaches, truly uninhabited with good snorkeling opportunities as well.
Half-day charters cost $750 per day for the boat or $1,200 per day for full day charters for either Underdog or Potcake. We generally troll with four (4) rods, thus we recommend a maximum of six (6) anglers, but if family and friends want to come along for the ride, no problem mon!
