Bair’s Lodge – Bonefishing Report
May 2015. By Doug and Sue Vigue
South Andros weather during May was outstanding overall. Light winds and bright sunny days. The guests enjoyed the conditions and caught many fish. As the month progressed, the warm temperatures in the afternoon had a tendency to get a bit too warm and the bonefish moved off the flats into deeper water.
Anglers and guides both reported seeing and hooking many large bonefish over 10 lbs but few of these were actually brought to the net. Ah, maybe that is why these fish are so big!
As the water has warmed up, tarpon and permit have also been spotted more frequently. A couple of anglers hooked up to tarpon but after a few jumps the tarpon through the hook.
Overall it was an outstanding fishing season. Fishing was great all season long. Personally I can’t say that a particular month was better than the others. Every month large fish were caught and all the anglers caught plenty of fish all season long.
