Trolling along the coast
Fishing Adventures Bonaire offers many fishing experiences. We arrange a trip where we mix up trolling for big oceanic species with jigging along the reefs and drop-offs. If we happen to encounter fish feeding at the surface, it's time to start casting using a wide range of lures.
This has proven to be a great cat & mouse game which makes the time fly by.
Expects lots of action and a diverse way of fishing.
We may encounter a whole range of fish species which inhabit these tropical waters.
If you prefer to use one fishing technique over the other, let us know and we will make it happen.

On foot through the lagoons of Sorobon and Lac Bay
Bonaire has several lagoons and flats that allow for waded fishing. The bottom is mix of hard sand and weedbeds. The waters are ankle to kneedeep and with an open connection to the Caribbean Sea the waters are crystal clear, making spotting a fish easier. We wade in the warm waters and fish on sight, to try and catch a bonefish. This fish is known for its rock-hard runs and even gives an experienced sportfisherman a hefty fight. The use of ultra-light spinning gear makes this experience and challenge even better. Other fish we encounter are, Barracuda, several Jack species, Cubera snapper, Ladyfish, Tripletail, and Tarpon. .
Departure in the morning at 07:00
To guide you in the best way, we can take a maximum of 2 people only. .
FISHING BY NIGHT
Fishing Adventures Bonaire can take you fishing at night near the oil tankers lying offshore. We target the fish that accumulates around the fully lit oil tankers. The illumination attracts the baitfish which in turn attracts the bigger fish. The boat is specially modified to get the best results for these trips with the necessary equipment and lighting. We catch mostly blackfin and Yellowfin tuna. Sometimes the occasional wahoo wants to have a go as well. We leave the dock in the evening and head out at cruising speed towards the tankers. Once we arrive, Jigging can be very effective, just like catching fish with surface lures.
Departure is at 19.00 hrs from Ocean Breeze Marina Kralendijk with the Fishfull Thinking.
Guests may have a part of the catch for their own use.
