Hi,
It's been a while since I have been on. I wish you all a Healthy & Happy New Year. I am planning a trip with my daughter for a small vac. I would like to visit the US Virgin Islands or Turks Caicos. I would like to get a day or 2 of flats fishing for bones. Any suggestions?
Jim

Because you said "flats fishing for bones" I would lean to Turks and Caicos (Provo) if you have the budget for geographic reasons. T&C is more of the typical bight and marl structure (like the Bahamas) where VI are like mountains in the sea albeit beautiful beach buffer zones.

Of course there are great fish in each and you might have a nicer vacation in USVI but when you say flats and bones I tend to think of a certain type of geography.

However the T&C guides are bordering on extortion with their inflated fees and the local government provides very little of the shoreline for pblic DIY fishing (guides can fish it all).
