The northern tip of the Abaco Islands may be the last great stronghold of remarkable bone-fishing in the Bahamas. Not only is Little Abaco remote and virtually un-fished, but this area is relatively easy to get to compared to locations farther afield. Providing access to thirty-so miles of flats to the south and nearly twice that distance in ocean-side islands and flats to the north and west, Little Abaco offers a variety that many other locations in the Bahamas cannot. Combine the vast opportunities available with the simple fact that the next nearest fishing lodge lies more than fifty-miles away, the three-guide crew at Little Abaco Bonefish Lodge have unprecedented and unfettered access to a seemingly endless array of choices to pursue un-pressured fish.
Having recently relocated their operation from Water Cay (on the north end of Grand Bahama) to the quaint community of Crown Haven, Little Abaco Bonefish Lodge is strategically positioned to access the vast area surrounding the island's northern coast. The small, humble lodge, which houses up to six anglers, is owned and operated by master bonefish guide Sidney Thomas and his wife Ketta. In their new "home waters" location, Sid and Ketta are happy to be able to share the fisheries of Sidney's youth with their guests. The lodge encompasses the very-same family home that Sidney grew up in years ago. Guests are treated to a overwhelmingly "real" Bahamas immersion when visiting Little Abaco. The experience offered at Little Abaco is akin to billeting in a Bahamian family's home. Ketta not only provides authentic and comfortable Bahamian cuisine, but hosts guests with a gregarious, welcoming and lovable character. Sidney takes his craft seriously and has a skillset difficult to match in the industry. He has been able to impart a lot of his knowledge to the father/son due of Greg and Dominick Rolle who round out the three-guide crew. The veteran guides exude knowledge, keen eyesight and a highly professional manner that rank them as some of the best guides we have come across in the Bahamas.
Fishing out of small Beavertail skiffs that draft very little water, anglers will be able to choose to pursue fish from the bow of the skiff or decide to hop out and wade when conditions merit. Only a few of Little Abaco's flats are "soft" and muddy whereas the bulk of the flats encountered are firm white sand bottoms - perfect for the wade fishing enthusiast. Additionally, the guides at Little Abaco are well versed at "chasing tides". Due to the terrain in this area, there can be as much as a three hour deflection in tides between the flats on the inside versus those that lay on the outside. This provides opportunities to be fishing during low tide multiple times per day. Depending on the conditions, Sidney and his crew can launch the boats within view of the lodge, or trailer the skiffs to other nearby regions of the island.
