Hello Anglers! All of us here at South Abaco Adventures would first like to wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas and safe holiday!
In December, we will see a lot more bonefish schools due to cooler water temperatures as they continue to spawn. There will also be a lot of yellow tail snappers and tarpons on the flats, as well as barracuda and the other usual suspects, which are lemon, nurse and reef sharks.
Our South Abaco Adventures team will target bonefish with 6- to 10-pound spinning gear and 8- or 9-weight fly rods. The spinning rods we will tip with small pieces of conch meat or shrimp. Barracuda and the larger suspects (like the lemon, nurse and reef sharks) will be target with 15- to 20-pound spinning gear tipped with a green tube lure or small piece of dead bait with a trace of wire and 5/0 hook.
The inshore waters will be trolled for Cubera snapper, amberjack and yellowjacks in 10 to 15 feet of water. We will troll with 30-pound conventional gear using red and black skirts.
I hope that you will take the time to come visit us in Sandy Point, Abaco to enjoy what we have to offer during 2014. Complete packages can be offered ranging from ground transportation to accommodations to meals during your South Abaco stay. I can be reached via email if you have any questions or need further information regarding our South Abaco inshore fishery.
