Bonefish and Permit
At North Riding Point Club, we’re known for turning up large Bonefish, our average fish range from four to seven pounds. That being said, “Trophy fish” (over ten pounds, and often in excess of twelve pounds) are encountered almost daily, and have earned us the reputation as the “go to spot” in the Bahamas for the Bonefish of a lifetime. Permit make frequent appearances in our waters as well, and in keeping with our theme – are quite large. You will see some “smaller fish” (10 – 15lbs) once in a while, but these Permit average twenty-five pounds; fish over forty-five pounds have been seen!
With nine boat launch sites, our guides have the luxury of considering variables like weather and tide to determine the fishing area that will give their guests the best overall experience. Our fishing territories include Grand Bahama’s North, South, and East End flats. Our Northern launch sites provide access to over 350 square miles of remote coral flats, shorelines and tidal creeks that offer the ultimate sight fishing experience. Anglers can also fish the untouched waters surrounding Great Sale Cay, Little Sale Cay, Carter Cay, Grand Cay, Strangers Cay, and Double Breaster Cays‒ all uninhabited.
More than world class Bone and Permit fishing, North Riding Point Club offers anglers the rare shot at the elusive “Bahamian Grand Slam” – with nearby Tarpon being a possibility when conditions align. Tarpon up to one hundred pounds have been caught in our waters.
The cantankerous Barracuda is usually nearby, and ready to smash a well placed fly or lure. The blistering speed of these top predators is something even the most experienced angler will never get used to.
Sharks will happily volunteer to test your skill as well; they are a strong, fast predator – with attitude to spare, and are a lot of fun to challenge to a fight.
Horse Eye and Bar Jacks, Mutton and Gray Snapper, and the Gray Triggerfish, all call our flats home as well. All can be a delight to catch – should you be able to turn your attention away from the Bonefish for a few minutes! Bringing a proper sized mutton Snapper back to Chef Genero for a world-class dinner is highly recommended!
