Bermuda bones

Bonefishing in Bermuda is isolated to a few wadeable flats. A few near the airport and one large flat just south of the Pompano Beach Club. Sommersett Long Bay is another beach with a small flat near the Mangrove Beach Club and is the only place I've seen them. They would not eat. Late April, May is the start of the best bonefishing when the water temps come up and the fish start to show in shallower water. Best place to stay is munro beach There is a huge flat right in front of the complex and is restricted to occupants unless you make the LONG wade in from West Whale Bay Park.
I did a lot of scouting when I was there in March and a caddy at the Port Royal Golf Club, which is near the Munro Beach,
says he sees bones from the cliffs there quite frequently! Sounds like New Zealand type fishing to me! Bring a friend to sight the fish from the cliffs while directing from a two way radio. I walked the cliffs and could see quite a bit of shallow
water that could be sight fished. Would be a good golf-fishing trip. One of the greens is right there on the cliff at waters edge. Don't look at the water while putting!!!!!!!! You might just spot one of those dark, huge bones! (double bogey)
