Long Island bonefishing flats consist of mostly hard sand bottom spotted with turtle grass. At least 70% of Long Island bonefishing flats are wadable flats making it an ideal ‘ assisted’ DIY destination.
Bonefish will be the primary targeted species in mostly shallow (less than 30 inches) water with the occasional deeper drop off. On average the bonefish are 3-6 pounds with “papa” going up to eight pounds. Typical fly patterns work with size #4 and #6 being standard.
Other species encountered are barracuda, snapper, sharks and rays.
About the Lodge, the Accommodations, and Meals
Long Island Bonefishing Lodge was designed and built to meet the needs of the traveling fisherman and is ideally located at the waters edge on Deadman’s Cay. The main building was built utilizing an open concept to highlight the combination of the main dining area, bar and lounge. Off the lounge is a gorgeous deck perched over the water where a beer at the end of the day tastes just that much better.
The accommodations consist of two duplex style cottages with each side furnished for two fishermen. The rooms are comfortably furnished with two queen size beds, closet space and one bathroom. There are decks off each cottage over looking the water with ample room to store all your gear.
Long Island Bonefishing Lodge provides three meals per day including dinner.
The coffee is on at 6:30 each morning, a typical American breakfast starts at 7:00 with the boats normally leaving the dock by 8:00 a.m.
Lunch consists of made to order sandwiches with snacks and drinks that are waiting for you when you meet up with the boat each day at noon.
Dinners are a choice of (2 -3) items normally, seafood, chicken or beef with a local Bahamian flare.
An appetizer is prepared around 4:30 each afternoon as you come in from a days fishing to sit around the bar and tell about the one that didn’t get away.
