Arriving in Bahamas w/ Fish onboard

Looks like a decent window to cross over to Bimini tomorrow. I want to troll a line as we cross but won't have a fishing license until we clear in.

What if I catch the fish in international waters, can I arrive in Bimini with the fish onboard?

I've never had a problem with it, Especially when I offer to share with C & I. They've never said no either.

I've never been asked if I had any fish on board lol.

Good to hear, it's our 1st time across, wasn't sure if they were concerned about that.

A nice wahoo or mahi mahi would be unreal.

Re: Arriving in Bahamas w/ Fish onboard

In all of our trips to the Bahamas, we have always fished and often caught something. No one ever ask what was in our fridge or ever came to the boat to check anything. Chuck

Checked in at West End last month. Wasn't asked. Actually, wasn't asked about anything - beer, wine, meat, guns, etc.
