Bonefish and mangroves go together like chocolate and peanut butter, like Sonny and Cher, like Jack and Diane.
- Mangroves provide important rearing habitat for all kinds of little critters that bonefish like to eat.
- Mangroves provide cover for bonefish, allowing them to travel far inland on a high tide to eat, but still be protected from predators like sharks and barracudas.
- Mangroves provide convenient obstructions around which bonefish can wrap your leader in the middle of the fight of a lifetime. Well, it’s almost all good…
We thought Bruce Chard got a really cool picture of a bonefish hanging out in his mangrove habitat, so we’re sharing it with you today.
