EXUMA - PEACE AND PLENTY BONEFISH LODGE

Location

Peace and Plenty is located at the southern end of Great Exuma Island.

The Fishing

Exuma is an archipelago of 365 islands, spread out over 90 miles, south and east of Nassau, on the Tropic of Cancer. The Lodge is mainly about wading the 60 miles of flats nearby, casting in the gin-clear waters, or skiff jumping between the numerous cays. One of the great advantages to fishing from the Peace and Plenty is the incredible choices in terms of where to fish. There are miles and miles of flats on both sides of the island and because of where the lodge is situated, the guides can have you fishing either Great Exuma's untold number of hard packed white sand flats or further south to Little Exumas countless creeks, lagoons and estuaries. Perfectly located on the channel between Great Exuma and Little Exuma, the lodges' location also ensures that the runs out to the flats are short, with some as little as 2 minutes by boat from the lodge. Several of the more productive areas include White Bay, Airport Flat, and Channel Cut.

The average Great Exuma bone will weight between 3-5 pounds with much larger fish available on a regular basis, particularly in the area to the south of the lodge, in Little Exuma. Aside from the spectacular setting and gin clear water, the guiding experience at Peace and Plenty really makes this a wonderful place to fish. The guides are all highly accomplished anglers in their own right and they enjoy teaching and explaining as the day unfolds. If you want to become a better caster or learn how to read the water more efficiently, spend a week at Peace and Plenty Bonefish Lodge. This part of the Bahamas receives very little angling pressure and when you consider the size of the fishing area and the lack of boats and anglers that can be found there, the Peace and Plenty Bonefish Lodge offers one of the most consistent fisheries we know of.

The waters in either direction from the lodge are that mystifying iridescent shade of blue/green that all saltwater fishermen covet. The visual beauty of this area is spectacular and when you combine this beauty with the number of bonefish that you'll find here, makes for one of the best bonefish destinations in the world. A big plus to fishing this destination is that unlike many of the other remote outer islands in the Bahamas that require an overnight in Nassau on the way down and way back, The Peace and Plenty Bonefish Lodge is easy to get to and out of in a single day. Offshore fishing in a larger craft is also available at extra cost, and fly-out seaplane expeditions are similarly possible.
