A lodge is only as good as its guides. Our Grand Bahamas bonefishing guides are native to the area and all have over 20 years experience fishing the area. At East End Lodge, we happen to have the best. They’re anglers who have grown up on the flats and whose reputations for successfully guiding and sharing their skills are legendary, not only in the Bahamas but worldwide.

Perry Demeritte (1970-2016)

In 2016, we lost Captain Perry after courageously battling a serious illness for several years. Spending 24 years as a guide, all that knew him, loved his instructional skills, ability, patience, convivial personality and contagious smile and will be dearly missed by all.
