bonefishing turks and caicsThis is a short blog post that provides some information about bonefishing in the Turks and Caicos islands.

First: the location. The Turks and Caicos Islands are located just east of the Bahamas (the Caribbean mecca for bonefishing) and are about an hour by direct flight from Miami; many airports in North America as well as Heathrow in London connect directly with Provo airport.

Provo (officially known as Providenciales) is a vacation mecca, with world-famous Grace Bay Beach voted #1 by TripAdvisor, Conde Naste and other publications. Provo is the gateway to the Turks and Caicos, and fishing carters and tours can be arranged by luxury hotels on the island.

However, getting to and from the ideal Turks and Caicos Bonefishing spot can take a lot of time, and ideally visitors would be based at one of the 40 or so lesser-populated cays to the east of Provo.

Caico Bank – prime Bonefish territory

The Caicos islands form a graceful arc stretching from east to west, and are separated from Grand Turk to the far east of the territory by the Caicos Channel.

To the north of the archipelago lie the Bahamas, separated by one of the world’s longest barrier reefs and a deep channel. To the south stretch the Caicos Bank, a shallow expanse of tidal flats and chinawhite sand lying just below crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean. The shores that ring the Caicos Bank is prime habitat for Bonefish, and cruising the shallow waters with an experienced guide makes for an excellent Caribbean vacation.

For Turks and Caicos bonefishing, Pine Cay, North Cay and Middle Caicos are popular locations. These cays, while sparsely populated, are also relatively accessible from Provo. Pine Cay itself has its own airstrip (for small planes) and an isolated private island resort – very few people here, so it’s possible to go bonefishing right from shore.

About the Bonefish

The Bonefish is a small, silver-colored fish known as “the grey ghost” for its ability to blend in almost undetected just beneath the surface of the Caribbean. What first-time anglers need to know is that the fish generally comes close to shore with the incoming tide, so wading around in a high tide searching for the Bonefish is considered part of the experience.

The Bonefish is a fighting fish, which is why anglers from all over the world come to the Caribbean to seek it out.

Bonefishing gear

Generally speaking, a flyfishing rig is suitable for bonefishing, although an experienced guide can provide information about line weight and lures to use. As well, be sure to be dressed for the sun. Bonefishing is an all-day affair, so be prepared for the sun!
