West End Island is home to world-class bonefishing and Blue Marlin Cove Resort is fortunate to be able to offer two distinct fisheries. There is abundant water with excellent bonefishing right on the backside of the West End .
West End is renowned for having the largest bonefish in the Bahamas. Fish averaging a solid 4 pounds, to many in the 9-plus pound class are encountered, while even larger bones work the edges of the flats. There is an honest opportunity to see and (hopefully!) catch bonefish weighing in the double digit category – a thrill for any fisherman.
Seasoned guides using Maverick flats skiffs with poling platforms will meet anglers each day at the Cay to fish the local waters. Full or half-day guided trips are available. Both experienced and novice fishermen are encouraged to enjoy our expansive flats and the challenge of stalking the elusive bonefish.
If you favor a more relaxed pace or if you just can’t stop fishing at the end of the day, wander on your own and wade sweeping flats just a short distance from the backdoor of your Villa.
Blue Marlin Cove has 3 bonefish skiffs/guides. We do have the ability to book independent guides if necessary, however, this must be confirmed with Carl Rolle PRIOR to accepting any booking over and above the 3 boats we have. We do not guarantee any specific guide names from our in-house guides, but preferences will be noted and we will do our best to meet them. The exception is for repeat guests only.
