In the Bahamas, Long Island is nestled in the southern reaches of this bonefish-rich nation, and for the traveling angler, this island is unique. Long Island is an unusual combination of huge, hard-bottomed, white sand flats, coral sand dikes and mangrove cays all laced with deep, pale blue or azure channels. The long abandoned "Diamond Crystal" salt salinas are a fine example of natural habitat reclamation and now serve as a perfect nursery to prolific numbers of two to four pound bonefish. Vast in scope, this area, near the settlement of Deadman's Cay, is a huge labyrinth of creeks connecting miles of hard-packed sand flats... perfect for the wading fisherman. Tidal flows predictably bring in fresh ocean water, which nourishes the many worms, clams, crabs and baitfish that attract large schools of bonefish. Moving through these channels and up onto the flats, the fish gorge themselves in the relative protection of this sheltered area.
For the avid bonefisherman, especially for those anglers seeking lots of shots at fish, this is a jackpot of tailing and cruising bonefish. On the right tide, the fishing is usually fast and furious with only short pauses between casts... the perfect situation for those anglers seeking to gain a lot of experience in a short time with these legendary gamefish. Long Island also has good populations of larger bonefish, usually found on the "outside" flats where the havens of deep water and coral reefs are found. While fewer in number, these bigger fish will, in their bid for freedom, test both your mettle and the quality of your reel's drag system. The blending of these two geographical areas (interior salt ponds and exterior more oceanic flats) allows the itinerant angler two delightful options: stalking classic deeper water flats for large singles and doubles or wading the shallow salinas looking for a sea of silver tails in the hot Bahamian sun.
