Turks and Caicos Bonefishing

An afternoon fish hunt aboard the bone collector. Sam's 7lb bonefish was the highlight. With a lemon shark seen moments earlier, we decided to focus on a safe release rather then digging out the video camera below deck. We hope to begin tagging these bonefish, to help better understand how often a released fish discharging pheromones will become lunch once in deeper water on the low tide. Satellite tags on mature bonefish is the next step in learning about these prehistory ghosts of the flats. On these particular conditions we had a full moon high tide and wind working together. With these conditions we were able to push a few miles into this relatively shallow canal. A spot that you can only fish a couple times a year. Long story short the fish were hungry and far from wary.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
