The vast network of saltwater creeks and flats on South Andros provides a virtually limitless amount of habitat for our bonefish. On the right tides, our inland flats provide a unique combination of abundant food for bonefish and very few predators. Since these flats are so far inland, they’re surrounded by shallow water for miles and miles. Sharks have a hard time swimming in 3 inches of water, so they’re nowhere to be found and that makes the bonefish happy.
What does that mean? Well, it means that you can encounter bonefish in less water than you thought possible, feeding calmly with their backs literally out of the water – like this curious guy, who swam right up to yours truly. Bonefish are supposed to be spooky in water this shallow.
Super-shallow water means sightfishing at its finest – when was the last time you saw the nostrils on a bonefish?
