Default Heading to Nassau for a week at the end of July, any fish?

My sons and I often fish offshore out of Savannah, we are heading to Atlantis the last week of July. Has anyone fished a charter in Nassau? Any good fishing in July or are they going to take us to "just catch a fish", basically trash fishing to make a tourist say they went fishing.

Most of the charterboats near there will take tourists out and troll and catch um a few barracuda, or bottom fish and catch a few snapper that are bigger than the bluegill they catch back home, and most tourists will be thrilled with what they caught.

But you know better, and there is an alternative if you can find the right boat. There is a pretty good yellowfin tuna fishery south and a little west of Nassau, but it is sometimes further out than the older broken down charterboats in Nassau want to run. So with that in mind, try to find a boat you are comfortable with, who says he knows where the YF are, and wants to find um for you! Note: it may cost a little more due to the distance the Capt has to run.
