Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a bonefishing newbie, a little practice goes a long way. Regardless of your experience level, there is always room for improvement. This is one of the great truths of our wonderful sport that keeps us coming back for more! Well, we recently made an addition to our casting area here at Andros South for those looking to sharpen their skills before heading to the flats. We are pretty excited about it and think our guests will be too.
What is it exactly? We hauled in a retired flats boat from our fleet and set it in our casting area. This way, you can become comfortable casting from the bow of a flats boat before hitting the water. We understand that fishing from a flats boat is often very different from what many of our guests are used to. We figured why not shake off some of the rust before cutting into that valuable fishing time!
We have labeled the bow of the boat with the appropriate clock face, and placed distance markers at 30, 45, 60, and 75 feet (labeled conch shells of course). That way, when your guide calls out, ‘bonefish, 10 o’clock, 30 feet,’ you will know right where to put it. We even made sure to face it directly into the prevailing wind to offer a little practice for those blustery days.
Whether you are aching to improve your skills or just looking to have some fun, our new casting platform is becoming a hit. Don’t just take our word for it – come check it out for yourself!
