In Bahamas, it’s more unusual to not own your own fishing gear than to not. With a wide selection of edible fish caught fresh out of the ocean, it’s a no brainer why thousands of anglers flock here to reel in their prize. With Nassau’s beautiful sun shining around 315 days out of the year, you’ll want to be out on the boat or in the water as much as possible.
A light tackle fishing tour is perfect for the fisherman type. Since not everyone knows what the difference is between light tackle fishing and normal fishing, we thought we’d explain to help make your decision on which tour to pick. Light fishing tackle is when the angler uses light bait, as well as matching it up in rod, reel and line size accordingly. Some anglers swear by it, and use it when the traditional fishing ways aren’t catching anything, they will switch over to this method.
