Bonefishing ‘Provo’

So my wife Nessy and I had planned to holiday in the Provodenciales for a ‘baby moon’ but I also had an objective to catch a Bonefish without a guide or boat and off my own back. So I did some research, bought some new jigs, packed up my travel rod and hired myself a scooter to allow me to explore the land-based bone options here in Provodenciales. These are notoriously hard fish to catch unless you have a guide or local knowledge.

After day one hitting the sandy turquoise lagoon of the beautiful Taylor Bay for a few hours I realised how elusive these fish are and started to get concerned that I might come all this way without getting a bone.

So I kept at it and found a special spot that just felt right. I through out my pinky jig and a few casts in I caught the unluckiest bonefish in the Caribbean. You’ll see from one of the photos I even hooked it through the nose, poor bugger didn’t know what was going on. They are like a massive whiting on steroids, they pull hard.
