If you want to cast to giant schools of hungry bonefish, or maybe casting to big tailing bones on the flats is what you’re after. It’s all right here in the Bahamas.
Fish in the tidal creeks on the East side of the island, hundreds of small keys off the southern tip of the island, the West side of South Andros Island is known for big fish, and inland ponds and creeks in the middle of the island. Some parts of the island hold larger groups of fish while others are home to larger fish, but smaller schools.
Bonefishing is an awesome melding of hunting and fishing, so you need to stay alert for fish coming in. Your guide will probably use the ‘clock’ system to guide your casting to the fish – i.e. “There’s a fish at 1 o’clock, thirty feet out”, cast there… quickly!
If it is possible, you should try to spot the fish before you cast, and don’t forget to lead it because bonefish can be pretty spooky if you ‘line’ them or plop a fly right on their heads. Learning to spot fish, even with your guide’s assistance, will help your success rate tremendously.
