February 14, 2018

Whether you are a bonefishing connoisseur, or have never practiced this sport, you must experience bonefishing in Exuma at least once. However, you’ll be warned—once you try once, you will have so much fun you will want to come back! Learn about the best times to travel to experience bonefishing in an area, what you will need to bring with you, and the benefits of working with an expert to make your trip the best experience you can have.

Best Times to Travel

While the Exumas have consistently warm weather compared to other parts of the world, when making the trip, there are times more favorable for your bonefishing preferences. If you are not a fan of humidity, avoid traveling during the peak summer months. January through March have pleasant temperatures and conditions ideal for bonefishing, as well as October and December. So, no matter what your schedule allows, a majority of the year will be favorable. The early and later parts of the year may be overcast, but it should not affect your bonefishing experience.

What to Pack

If you are looking to bring your own gear, there are a few essentials to pack for your trip. Some of these items include:
  • Fly rods
  • Flies
  • Fishing lines
  • Leaders
  • Hooks
  • Polarized sunglasses for better visibility of fish in the water
  • Wading boots
  • Raincoat in the event it does rain
  • Sunscreen
  • Waterproof bag for essentials (snacks, water, etc.)
  • Towels and hand sanitizer
