San Salvador Fishing
Bahamas Monster Wahoo!
- Where: Riding Rock Resort, San Salvador, Bahamas

- Target Species: Giant Wahoo
- Getting There: Fly Bahamas Air to San Salvador, via Nassau
- Cost: Call for Package Pricing
San Salvador is arguably the best place in the world to target MONSTER WAHOO, and the OVER UNDER will once again be putting this much heralded destination back on its itinerary for 2024, albeit for a fairly short duration. This tiny island in the far southern Bahamas is a magnet for big wahoo, just ask George Poveromo who has fished here twice in the last 5 years, and has bagged wahoo over 100 pounds (117 and 143) on both occasions! Trolling is the name of the game, and with a healthy shark population, many unfortunately are lost to predators, but this is part of the game here in San Sal.
When in San Salvador, we charter out of Riding Rock Marina. Riding Rock offers both dining and hotel facilities, as well as a full PADI Dive operation. From the marina, the famous hump to the North is 10 miles, while the NE and Sandy Point are each about 7 miles. Often unfished, is the South-East point, which also offers some incredible structure for big game fish. OU currently creates custom trips to San Salvador, but is not there all the time, so please call ahead! San Sal is in close proximity to both Cat Island and Rum Cay.
We are offering 3 to 5 day fishing packages in mid- to late-March, days are limited, so please call us now if you’d like to join us this winter.

On Cat Island, Over Under charters out of Hawks Nest Resort and Marina, which offers very nice beachfront cottages, dining facilities, clubhouse, freshwater pool, and a modern 28 slip marina facility. Hawk’s Nest Marina is conveniently located on the Southwest corner of Cat Island, approximately 300 miles south east of Fort Lauderdale and 140 miles south east of Nassau. The marina facility, which is entered via a natural creek on the leeward side of the island and is extremely well protected, experiencing virtually no surge commonly found in other Bahamas.

Cat Island Fishing is all about structure, structure, and more structure! From the marina, the drop-off is 100 yards! Depending on sea conditions and the bite, the lines can literally be dropped once you’ve cleared the entrance to the marina. Prominent “hot spots” such as Tartar Bank, a sea mount rising up from the depths of over 3000ft, to a peak of 80ft, is 4 miles from Hawk’s Nest, and Columbus Point, off the South East corner of Cat Island, is 14 miles.
We invite you to come enjoy our Bahamas charter boats, and have the Cat Island Bahamas Fishing experience of a lifetime! Call for a custom Hawks Nest package.
Five nights at the Hawks Nest Resort on Cat Island with four full days of fishing for blue marlin, tuna, dolphin and wahoo. On Cat Island, Over Under charters out of Hawks Nest Resort and Marina, which offers very nice beachfront rooms, dining facilities, clubhouse, freshwater pool, and a modern 28 slip marina facility.
Rum Cay Fishing
Sumner Point Marina
On the remote Island of Rum Cay, Over Under operates Bahamas fishing charters out of Sumner Point Marina nestled into the South East corner of this tiny island. Sumner Point Marina provides comfortable dockage for 20 vessels, colorful beach cottages and restaurant.
The South East and North East points at Rum Cay are two of the best producing fishing areas in the Bahamas. From the marina, you may as well drop the lines when you clear the outer reef. The South-East Point is only a couple miles away and has quietly become one of the best producing Blue Marlin areas in the entire Caribbean. Inshore the free diving and bottom fishing is equally excellent. One of the best features of Rum Cay is its small size, allowing us to fish the leeward side of the island on those otherwise unfishable days.
A Rum Cay Bahamas Fishing trip is a great place to plan your Bahamas Fishing Vacation. Please call for custom pricing.
