Deep Sea Fishing South Eleuthera
The fishing out of Cape Eleuthera Resort & Marina is world-class, with excellent opportunities to catch yellow and blackfin tuna, wahoo up to 95 pounds, mahi-mahi, sailfish, and blue and white marlin.
Typically we utilize either Hammered 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 can 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 Anderson 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 8:00 am and returning at 12:00 pm, or leaving at 1:00 pm and returning at 5:00 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, we will also suggest departure times to provide the most fishing time while the tide is moving.
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 Cape Eleuthera Resort and Marina offers lots of beaches, truly uninhabited with good snorkeling opportunities as well.
Half-day charters cost $800 per day + VAT or $1,300 per day + VAT for full day charters for either Hammered or Potcake. We generally troll with four (4) to six (6) rods depending on conditions, thus we recommend a maximum of six (6) anglers, but if family and friends want to come along for the ride, no problem mon!
We offer a Deluxe Combo Package which consists of a 1/2 day of fishing and a 2 tank dive for a minimum of 4 divers. Depending upon the tides, we generally start off fishing until slack tide (fishing gets slow sometimes at slack tide), then we do two dives and then it's back to deep sea fishing.
