Fishing News: Bootle Bay Fishing Lodge

An out-island experience only 60 miles from West Palm Beach.

At Bootle Bay Fishing Lodge stress is only a word. The recently renovated facility has 12 air conditioned rooms, including six suites. Internet access is available in the main lodge. Each room has its own private entrance and private bath and shower. Transportation to and from the Freeport Airport can be arranged. A restaurant is located on the premises serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Come stay with us in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

Bootle Bay is a very comfortable, laid back lodge. We are located just minutes from West End Grand Bahama and only 30 minutes from Freeport. Here you will feel the gentle breeze and hear the refreshing sound of the ocean waters. Enjoy a dip in our pool after a long day on the water. We are proud to be a family run resort and while small in size, we are big on service. All you need to know is that the rooms are comfortable, the water hot, and the AC is cool!


Bootle Bay Fishing Lodge is right in the heart of the action. You are less than a minute from the ocean where you can start trolling for Mahi or Tuna right away. Bottom fishing for Grouper and Snapper is minutes away. The bonefish flats are located 10-15 minutes from the lodge. What kind of fishing do you like? We have it all!

Guides are available and can be booked through the Lodge.


The bonefish flats are pristine and are located on the north side of Grand Bahama Island 15 minutes away.
Bottom Fishing

The variety of bottom fish near the lodge in West End is nothing short of amazing. Yellowtail Snappers, Yellow Eye Snappers, Mangrove Snappers, Groupers and more! Just drop a line and hang on! While bottom fishing you can always let a flatline out and you never know what you will catch. Fish caught while bottom fishing range from a pound or less, to 50 lbs and more.
Deep Sea Fishing

This is where you need the big guns. Imagine hooking an 80lb Wahoo or giant Yellowfin Tuna and trying to contain you excitement as the line peels off. Mahi Mahi (Dolphin) are plentiful. Yellowfin Tuna are located in the famed “Tuna Alley”, a short run from Bootle Bay Fishing Lodge in the Northwest Providence Channel. You never know when you will latch into a Kingfish or Barracuda. Sailfish and Marlin are also found not far from the lodge as you troll in 600-2,000 feet of water.
