We used Paul Petty, who to took us reef and deep sea fishing in 2010 (and bone-fishing in 2011). We went out of Savannah Sound, but I think he goes anywhere in the area where he knows the fishing is good. He is a really great guide and we had a incredible time.

Eleuthera tours also does reef fishing, out of Cape Eleuthera. We have not used them before but they are highly recommended.

How can I get in touch with Mr Petty? Is there an email or only the phone 242-332-2963?

Also do you guys have any captains to recommend near Gregory Town & Rainbow Bay?

Chokeman, we recently had a renter who had the Rainbow Inn arrange for a half day charter with Captain Z out of Gregory Town. They were very happy with the fishing. You can contact Zev at the Inn.

We just called Paul Petty. I don't think he does email. That is the same number I have so hopefully it is still good.

We went fishing with a charter out of cape eleuthera and the reef fishing was cosmic . Like 400 for half day on a 20 foot center console. Trolled for awhile and then lit up the reef. I think eleuthera tours just does hand lining.
