Cat Island, Bahamas report
Spent last week at Pigeon Cay Beach Club which is on a peninsula a bit inland of Alligator Point. The adjacent creek/flats had a decent amount of bones, some schools of a dozen fish as well as nice sized singles. Also saw numerous baracuda and 3 ft. sharks.
The weather was not the typical easterly but hard from the North/NW making casts tough and timing the tides difficult since it would back up the water up the creek or slow down the incoming tide. Lots of green turtles and eagle rays in the deep channel near the mouth.
Near the "Boathouse" on the east side was most productive but walking north a mile or more will expose some smaller channels with lots of bonefish sign.
Pigeon Cay Beach Club is a great low key place to stay and walking distance to the flat. Orange Creek is excellent I hear and within 30 minute drive at the northern most part of the Island.
Awesome people. Beautiful locale.
