Whether you are a seasoned pro or an amateur fisher, bonefishing
is a popular sport that appeals to all individuals. Bonefishing
is one of the most esteemed forms of sport fishing in the world.
Bonefish are actually found throughout the Caribbean but are
particularly abundant in the waters around certain islands.
Bonefish spend their time swimming along very shallow banks
digging for food. These fast moving silvery fish average between
4 and 6 pounds, but can reach up to 19 pounds. The sport of
bonefishing is not a passive activity. In fact, you will not
spend time sitting on a boat casting your reel. To bonefish,
groups of three or four people jump off the boat at the same
time and follow the schools of fish. Bonefishing is an ideal
activity for a group of friends or a family on a Caribbean
vacation together and the island of Great Exuma is just the
place to experience the fun of this popular sport.
The island of Great Exuma has earned its world-wide reputation

waters you will find many opportunities to tail and hook a
variety of bonefish. As you stand in the crystal clear waters
looking for the fast and slippery one, don't forget to notice
the other exciting and beautiful marine life.
