Bimini’s location along the legendary Gulfstream (a “river” of warm water) location is at the apex of a superhighway for migrating fish and acts as a kind of sushi conveyor belt carrying abundant food to the local fish. Deepwater game fish include marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo and swordfish, while big grouper, barracuda and schools of snapper can be found on the reefs. Bimini’s flats are home the fishermen’s favorite prey, bonefish and permit. With more than 50-record-setting catches in the waters around the island, Bimini has earned its title of Sport Fishing Capital of the World.


Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina General Manager Michael Weber said that the offshore charters would be “a great amenity for both accomplished and recreational anglers who can be at our docks by plane in 25 minutes.”


The Big Game Club will host The Billfish Bonanza on May 15-18. Those interested in more information should go to www.biggameclubbimini.com.
