Galloups Lodge offers incredible bonefish fishing on the southern tip of Abaco. The lodge has been totally remodeled from head to toe, and is well situated for easy access to the expansive flats around Sandy Point, the flats running North and South of Sandy Point, plus Gorda Cay and Mores Island. Ricardo our head guide is considered to be one of the best fishing guides in Abaco. He has lived and fished the waters around Sandy Point for over forty years. Guests at the lodge can now benefit from years of combined bonefishing experience offered by Ricardo and his team of world class Bahamas fishing guides.
Coffee will be available in the dinning room at 6:00 AM. Breakfast begins at 7:00 AM. The fishing day normally runs from 8:00AM – 4:00PM. Lunch is packed in a cooler and taken aboard.
After a hard days fishing, you will return to the fishing lodge to relax in your room or perhaps sit and enjoy the expansive 50 ft. deck over looking the water or at the bar sharing a drink and great stories of the day while enjoying appetizers.
Dinner, consisting of Bahamian dishes such as conch chowder, lobster, grouper, chicken and vegetable dishes are served between 6:30 – 8:00PM.
Galloup’s Bonefish Lodge sits directly on a beach overlooking a fishable flat. Guests can access a small flat immediately in front of the lodge. Beyond the flat is a creek and another very productive bonefish flat, known as Town Flat, which offers world class bone fishing.
Vast areas to the North, West and South of the lodge, are comprised of hard sand, with areas of turtle grass. In total, about 75% percent of the flats are wadeable.
The bonefish flats around Sandy Point are home to large numbers of bonefish in the 3-5 pound range, and guests have seen fish in the 14 pound range. Also within a short boat ride is Mores Island, which will be much more comfortable with the addition of our new Hells bay Marquesa boats for the ride over. This is one of the best places in the Bahamas to target permit on the fly. This is also the place to go to fly fish for large bonefish, mutton snapper, jacks and big barracuda. To the west is Gorda Cay, another spot renowned for large bonefish and permit that will take flies. Boat rides to these destinations can range from 20 – 50 minutes, depending, of course on the unpredictable Bahamian weather.
Sandy Point is one of the few places in the Bahamas with a predictable Permit fishery and Galloup’s is an excellent place to target Permit in the Bahamas from May – NovemberAnglers should bring all of their own equipment but We have added a well stocked fly shop at the lodge, for emergencies.
