Bimini Inshore Fishing Forecast – April 2011

Nick Wood set to release a prize permit while fishing with Bonefish Ebbie.

As in most areas of the northern Bahamas, the bonefish are plentiful and they are definitely hungry. Larger bonefish are traveling in smaller schools, but can easily be found. Recently, one of my customers caught and released 35 fish in one day!

The blustery days of winter are now behind us and flat, gin-clear water is the rule. The best inshore fishing will be on an incoming tide in and around the mangrove islands early morning and late afternoon or early evening. Permit numbers will be increasing and they will be nice in size. Out to north on the Eldorado Shoal, the fishing has been, and will continue to be fantastic. It’s loaded with amberjack in the 50-60 pound range, as well as yellowtail snapper and lots of cobia. A recent trip by anglers Brian Ominski, Joshua Fowler and Georgette David was unbelievable. They loaded their coolers to the brim. Perhaps their luck was precipitated by the use of fresh pilchards acquired by Karen David who is the Queen of the Pilchards on Bimini!

Come to Bimini and enjoy a fabulous fishing vacation!
