ABACO - TREASURE CAYE

Location

Treasure Caye Resort, Treasure Caye, Abaco, Bahamas.

The Fishing

Treasure Caye is located about two thirds of the way up the island of Abaco, on the East side of the island. From a bonefishing perspective, this is about as good a location as one could ask for in that it affords anglers an enormous and varied area to fish. The Northern edge of the world famous Abaco Marls is easily reached from Treasure Caye. This part of the marls is a highly productive bonefish area and certainly gets less pressure than the main section of the marls, which is located closer to Marsh Harbour. The hundreds of islands and thousands of flats in the Northern marl section produce superb bonefish action and based on their location, will offer many good fishing locations that are sheltered from poor weather, particularly when a Northeast wind is blowing. Guests may see another boat or two during a day of fishing the Northern marl, but thats about it.

On Andros Island, the beaches are empty and there is almost no tourism. The Andros Barrier Reef, the third largest in the world and the second largest in the western hemisphere, stretches 140 miles along the east coast of the island and has a 6,000 foot drop-off. Additionally Andros abounds in blue holes (underwater cave systems) which have been the scene of some of the deepest underwater cave explorations in the world.

Yet, these reefs, beaches and waterways are truly among those few remaining "undiscovered" places. The island waterways of Andros, especially Fresh Creek, offer a spectacular opportunity for dinghy exploration and fishing. Andros Island's 2,300 square miles may well contain the largest tracts of unexplored land in the Western hemisphere.

The bone fishing on Fresh Creek is spectacular. The most select anglers from around the globe come to Andros to match wits with these challenging game fish. A variety of other game fish can be found around the island including Permit, Tarpon, Barracuda, Snappers, Jacks, Grouper, Dolphin, Wahoo, Marlin and Sharks.
