Eleuthera has become a popular destination for fly fishing, but it is still possible to find remote areas teeming with bonefish. The narrow out island of the Bahamas has a wide variety of flats ideal for wading, and if you talk to locals they will give you pointers on how to outsmart the fish. One of those pointers is don’t fish the day after a full moon because bonefish feed that night, and won’t be hungry the next day. They also suggest checking tide schedules every morning, because they can be unpredictable and inconsistent. Bonefish have a slender, silver body with a greenish or bluish back and they can often be spotted with their tail out of the water. If and when you catch a bonefish, it must be released, but you can also catch barracuda, cowfish, grouper, snapper, and more species that can be kept if they are the appropriate size.
