trip description for Bahamas Deep Sea Adventure in Spanish Wells

Head out with Captain Shawn for a laid-back--but productive--deepsea fishing experience aboard his 30 foot Sailfish. For these trips Captain Shawn will show you just how productive deepwater trolling these Caribean waters can be! Trolling trips are great because the boat and the knowledge of your captain do the "boring" part for you. You get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sweet sea breeze with good company while you wait for the reel to start screaming! These trips can be extremely productive as well. If you get into a pod of Wahoo, Tuna, or Mahi, Captain Shawn will just keep circling back to catch more and more, until you've caught your limit or your arms get too tired. Though Wahoo, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi are some of the most frequent fish you'll see in these waters, there are plenty more species the deep can offer up! Captain Shawn will provide all the fishing gear for you including rods, reels, tackle, and artificial baits. Some of Shawn's clients prefer to troll with live bait, which he will gladly purchase for you ahead of time. For these deepsea trips, live bait usually costs between 200-300 dollars, so let us know if you'd like to add that on as well. Captain Shawn will gladly pick you up from anywhere on Spanish Wells, and will pick up in Eleuthera sometimes as well, but if you are staying in Harbour Island, he asks that you please ferry back over to Eleuthera where he can pick you up from the dock!

trip description for Bonefishing the Bahamas in Spanish Wells

Captain Bentley, specializes in world-class bonefishing around Spanish Wells, home of some of the best flats in the world! If you're looking to catch bonefish on the fly, there is no better place than the Bahamas. Happy and "uneducated" bonefish swim around everywhere and infest the local flats and chanels. Included in your trip are snacks, water, ice, and all the necessary fishing gear. If you'd like to bring your own gear, Captain Brentley encourages you to do so! When you head out with Captain Bentley, you'll be stalking the endless gin-clear flats aboard his 18-foot Action Craft flats boat. The boat can carry up to three anglers per trip but 2 will fish much more comfortably and is preferable since added wait can make it harder for your captain to pole the boat around. Positioned on the front of the bow, fly rod in one hand, shrimp imitation fly in the other, Captain Bentley will pole you around looking for mud clouds and light grey torpedos. Cruising fish (torpedos) can be tough to catch, especially since there often on high alert. But if you can make a cast past--and infront of--the fish, you can strip it back by them to intersect their path and entice a bite! Muds can be easy to spot and are a sign of happy fish milling around looking for a meal. You don't even need to see the fish sometimes: after your Captain poles you within striking distance of the cloud of mud, you can make a delicate cast just beyond it, and twitch your fly through for an epic bite! Give it a big strip to set the hook (Don't raise the rod tip), and get ready for one of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean (pound for pound). Captain Bentley is based out of Spanish Wells, and will happily come pick you up if you're staying in Spanish Wells or Eleuthera. If you're staying on Harbour Island, he asks that you please ferry back over to the dock in Eleuthra and he will meet you there! So come spend a day bonefishing with Captain Bently down in the Bahamas for an epic fly fishing experience. His knowledge of the local waters means you will have success in your catch! Read More

    Excellent time. Captain is awesome. 100 percent. We love fishing and Capt. Sean will put you on the fish if they’re hungry.

    James T. with Sean S. of Spanish Wells, Spanish Wells

  • ★★★★★
    This was truly one of the best charter experiences I've had in over 15 years of sportfishing. Since there is no land access to Spanish Wells, Shawn picked us up from the ferry port on the main island of N. Eleuthera. Capt. Shawn's boat is nothing short of a Rolls Royce on water. Shawn is the perfect guide. Quiet when you want him to be, but willing to share his decades of experience fishing in Spanish Wells when needed. We did an extended half day trip which got us to waters around 75 feet deep. The water is so clear here, you could see straight down to the bottom. We wore out some strawberry grouper, porgy, yellowtail snapper, and trigger fish all day. The highlight of the trip was when a pack of amberjack came right up under the boat. I grabbed the heaviest rod Shawn had and hooked a small porgy through the spine and dropped it down about 15 feet. This massive amberjack was toying with my bait for a few minutes right under my nose. Incredible adrenaline rush! He finally took it and instantly ripped out a couple hundred yards of line, reel absolutely screaming! Mr. Jack wore me out after about 15 minutes, and I passed the rod over to my buddy. We got him up to the boat but he was way too big for the net and he flopped out right on the gunwale. Didn't get a picture with him, but it was truly the fight of a lifetime. Another highlight of the trip, instead of taking us straight back to the marina to clean the fish, Shawn popped over to a huge shipwreck where we got out and snorkeled for a while. Then, he took us over to one of the dozens of gorgeous empty beaches that dot the area, dropped anchor, and cleaned the fish while we enjoyed the views, explored the beach, and threw a few back. Shawn was born and raised here, so you'd be hard pressed to find a fishing guide in Spanish Wells with more local knowledge. Everything about this trip was perfect, I would recommend it to any angler of any skill level.
