Rickmon Bonefish Lodge
Rickmon Bonefish Lodge
The flats of Abaco, most of which are easily waded, are made up of white sand and turtle grass. Bonefish average three to five pounds, and fish in the double-digits are found on a regular basis. Many will attest that some of the biggest bonefish in the world are found along the coast of Abaco.
Off the west coast of Abaco lie Gorda Cay and Mores Island. These islands are renowned for holding large bonefish and permit on beautiful, sandy-white flats. They are recognized as two of the best places in the Bahamas to specifically target permit. On calm days, these islands are an easy run from the lodge and well worth the trip! Sandy Point is a secluded fishing village with no other bonefish lodges in the area. So, if you are tired of crowded and pressured flats, this destination is for you! The lodge has the closest access to the interior of Abaco and the surrounding keys. It is very rare to see boats that are not from Rickmon's and the guides work as a team, so you will most likely see no other traffic.
BOATS AND EQUIPMENT OFFERED: Guides utilize high-end 16-18 foot skiffs complete with poling platforms, 90-140HP Yamaha outboards, and spacious casting decks.
