About Abaco Lodge, On the Marls…
The “Marls of Abaco” are situated along the western shore of Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas, encompassing a vast swath of prime, wilderness bonefish habitat. The Marls has long been considered one of the most unique and productive fisheries in the Bahamas for its prolific numbers and cooperative fish.
If you’re looking for productive bonefish waters, you’ve come to the right place. Abaco has more than 400 square miles of flats—teeming with bonefish. And Abaco Lodge, on the western side of the island, just happens to abut some of the best in the Bahamas. The lodge is centrally located on the Marls side, with backdoor access to them all. For twenty miles toward the open ocean, the average depth is four feet. Heading north or south, it would take a lifetime to explore the entire region. And after investing some time fishing the area, devoting a life’s worth of casts to its prolific quarry isn’t such a bad proposition.
