The are several types of fishing that can be experienced in the Bahamas. A particularly unique one is Bone Fishing, or Salt-water Fly Fishing… done in the shallows with all types of interesting ‘rules and recommendations’. For me, the most interesting part of the whole thing was that Bo (see below) could entertain himself for hours on end, with this pole in his hand, casting and recasting — but mainly just staring at the water and waiting for a Bonefish or two or three to swim by. Not once did he actually catch a fish, nor even get close to catching a fish (as far as I know), but apparently he had a great time just standing there and HOPING he would see one or — wait for it — CATCH one! Hhhmmmm. Is this a male thing?

Dogs like bone fishing too! Maybe they have better luck?
The Flats are extremely beautiful… the ebbing tide changing the landscape hourly.
My suggestion? After a week or so, or two, or whatever… call Stuart. Maybe he knows where those Bonefish are hiding? Of course, that’s what a girl would do. It’s akin to asking directions.
