MartyG Jim,

Tropical Impulse is a nice house. You must remember Delshire Mingo - the caretaker. I hung out with the guests there last November. Three girls from California.

Chef David from Tippy's gave me directions to Half Bay and said he saw lots of fish in there diving. I think he spearfishes in there. After Hurricane Irene the drive out on the peninsula was treacherous. More so than normal.

Fish or no fish it's still a great place to visit.

We also spent 2 weeks in N. Palmetto. A house called Tropical Impulse.
The family really enjoyed the snokeling and beach there. Saw a few bones in the surf....but not many.

btw: on both occasions we were in Eleuthera in June.

juro Marty -

I think I drove to the end of that peninsula too - beautiful place, but wow what a feeling of relief when you get back onto pavement

Here's a pic I took of young fishermen working hand lines at the cove which is at the base of that point.

It was a miracle I got the car out of there. Maybe I'll try Turtle Beach.

My neighbors in N. Palmetto Pt. say there is a HUGE Parrot fish right in front of their house. I'll have to snorkle over there to check it out.

While snorkling in front of my house in 15 of water I noticed a school of jacks circling and saw a school of bones swimming just under them. I was wondering all day where the darn things were. Maybe my blindcasting bothered them and kept them from moving along the beach.

Jim Miller Hey Marty
A few years back our family spent 2 weeks on Winding Bay.

Caught bones where the Bay meets the ocean. Caught jacks and cuda in the bay. The bay has a lot of grass and it is hard to see fish.

I fished Half Bay a few times. The inlet has some big cuda and HUGE parrott fish. Saw some BIG sharks in the inlet also.
The mangroves in the corner towards Winding Bay hold bones and some big ones.

There is a dirt road all around Half Bay. At the South? end head out towards the ocean and travel North? back towards the inlet. Some nice bones in the ocean stretch. Also some nice beach and snorkeling there. Great place for a picinic.

Send me a PM if I can help further. I am envious....Eleuthera is a wonderful place!
best

MartyG Thanks guys. I've got what looks like a perfect moon phase and tides. I'll poke around and hopefully find some good fishing and report back.

Vince both places are kind of hit and miss. Sometimes there are a few fish, sometimes not.

JonC Half sound has fish, not so many, but large, I was last there a couple of years ago and didn't see anything, before that it was during the nineties my wife and I stayed at Club Eleuthera two years running and I did encounter fish and they were big. As for Winding Bay, I've heard of fish there but never saw any other than barracuda.

Winding Bay & creeks in Eleuthera

Good afternoon.

Has anyone fished Winding Bay in southern Eleuthera? I've seen some photos recently and it looks shallow & fishy but I also noticed some creeks that lead to some mangroves. I think it also connects to Half Sound.

I'd like to try some new spots and stalking through some creeks might be fun. Any suggestions south of Governor's Harbour would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Marty
