Location Spotlight: Crooked Island, Bahamas

For any of you looking for a true out-island experience look no further than Crooked Island. Its a great spot for a mixed bag of activities. The winter is when the wahoo are thick and swell fills in. And as spring rolls around, tuna and marlin start to show. The diving on the wall, while deep and challenging, can be rewarding. And the bonefishing is epic as well. It no surprise Carter Andrews spent 15 years as a fishing guide there. 

We have run a few group trips to Crooked in the past and had an epic time. The fish are deeper, so expect to dive 45 feet minimum with many spots on the wall being nearly 100 feet deep. But you will find monster hogfish and snapper. We even saw a few blacks well over the 80 lb. mark. But crooked is the kind of place to go if you want to do more than just spearfish all day. The tuna fishing, trolling and deep dropping are all great. And if you're lucky, you can paddle out to the reef by Bird Rock and surf the right that breaks there. 

Three years ago Hurricane Joaquin blasted Crooked Island head on. And the local economy was impacted in a big way. But they are bouncing back and have a few places open for rentals, Including the house you see below. For more information contact:
