The Bonefish is one of the hardest fish to catch sight fishing the shallow inland flats. No other fish is more frustrating. He never sits still he is always moving from place to place. He hardly stops to eat! He is a nervous wreck afraid of everything!
Poling the flat hunting bonefish is as challenging as anything in fishing. Very hard to see very easy to spook. If you enjoy hunting and a frustrating challenge you will enjoy Bonefishing. Come give it a try if you are not into it there are plenty of other fish in bay.
Miami's Biscayne Bay is the Northern most range for the Bonefish.Here it's average size is 6-8 pounds and a 10 pounder is not uncommon!
So if you are in the area of Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach and want try Bonefishing you are 1 hour or less away.
Notes: travels in loose schools; roots out shrimp, shellfish, crabs, and fish from the bottom; spawns offshore, eggs hatching into ribbon-like larvae that change into fish-like form at about 2 inches and move Inshore.
