Here is one captain’s take on fishing in the Bahamas right now. We’d love to hear what you think…
I have an idea. Instead of trying to navigate the grey area of the US/Bahamas offshore boundaries, how about wait until the Bahamas opens back up. Go over, clear in, get a fishing permit and then fish wherever you want legally.
Just because you have the money and resources to want to do something doesn’t give you privilege to do it. There are many other areas within the US coastal boundaries to catch fish. The tuna and marlin bite is happening in the Carolinas for an example. Take your boat up there or to the Keys and patronize the local US economy at the marinas, tackle shops and restaurants.
Leave the Bahamas alone and respect their wishes to remain closed for the time being. Under the current conditions, it seems to me Respect is what is lacking all around the world. Just my opinion. Tight lines.
Do you have any comments or questions for us? We’d love to hear from you.
