Start your days off at the NRPC with a choice of eggs any way, fresh fruit, assorted muesli, muffins, waffles, yogurt, fresh juices and far more. The morning chef, Vernice, will have virtually anything you desire. While you dine, she’s also finishing the lunches you ordered the evening before: anything from Conch Salad to fried Chicken, or sandwiches of all kinds. The excursion Lunch menu is extensive, and guarantees you’ll eat like a king while you pursue the Silver Fox!
In the evening Chef, Genero, will be your “Culinary Guide”, his unique perspective on classic dishes such as Roasted Game Hen and Lamb Chops are balanced by a plethora of Bahamian classics like whole fried Snapper and Cracked Conch (there is a “Land or Sea” option every evening.) His tremendous talents in flavor blending will provide you with an epicurean experience that is certain to rival the day’s fishing in your memories!
12 Rods per week
At North Riding Point Club, they’re known for turning up large Bonefish, the average fish range from four to seven pounds. That being said, “Trophy fish” (over ten pounds, and often in excess of twelve pounds) are encountered almost daily, and have earned the reputation as the “go to spot” in the Bahamas for the Bonefish of a lifetime. Permit make frequent appearances in our waters as well, and in keeping with our theme – are quite large. You will see some “smaller fish” (10 – 15lbs) once in a while, but these Permit average twenty-five pounds; fish over forty-five pounds have been seen!
With nine boat launch sites, the guides have the luxury of considering variables like weather and tide to determine the fishing area that will give their guests the best overall experience. The fishing territories include Grand Bahama’s North, South, and East End flats. The Northern launch sites provide access to over 350 square miles of remote coral flats, shorelines and tidal creeks that offer the ultimate sight fishing experience. Anglers can also fish the untouched waters surrounding Great Sale Cay, Little Sale Cay, Carter Cay, Grand Cay, Strangers Cay, and Double Breaster Cays‒ all uninhabited.
More than world class Bone and Permit fishing, North Riding Point Club offers anglers the rare shot at the elusive “Bahamian Grand Slam” – with nearby Tarpon being a possibility when conditions align. Tarpon up to one hundred pounds have been caught in these waters.
The cantankerous Barracuda is usually nearby, and ready to smash a well-placed fly or lure. The blistering speed of these top predators is something even the most experienced angler will never get used to.Sharks will happily volunteer to test your skill as well; they are a strong, fast predator – with attitude to spare, and are a lot of fun to challenge to a fight.
Horse Eye and Bar Jacks, Mutton and Gray Snapper, and the Gray Triggerfish, all call our flats home as well. All can be a delight to catch – should you be able to turn your attention away from the Bonefish for a few minutes! Bringing a proper sized mutton Snapper back to Chef Genero for a world-class dinner is highly recommended!
