I am planning a trip to the island in mid November, will be staying north of Governors Harbour. Any information on tides, flies to use,
and fishing areas would be greatly appreciated.
Hopefully I will be frugal fishing, any fishing on the Atlantic side?
Thanks.

First of all let me mention how envious I am! We've had a few people go there and it's high on my list of places to go ASAP.

You can find a great Eleuthera (done frugally) article entitled "White Sand and Freedom" in the chronicles page:

You can reach Kevin for further details via email as well as find more interesting discussion via the search function on the top menu bar.

Have you been to other bonefish destinations in the past?

Hello Juro
Yes I went to Cuba in April and stayed on Cayo Largo.
The fishing was great, caught many bonefish all around 20" to 28".On one particular flat I caught one of 2 tailing fish and released it,to my suprise when I turned back the other fish was still tailing, I cast to it hooked and then lost it! Good fishing.
