I will be on AC a couple of miles south of town during the Christmas/New Year holiday and am interested in some fishing information. I will be fishing the flats with a guide for a couple of days but am also interested in fishing on my own, without the aid of a boat. How hard is it to get to the lagoons on the back side of the island and is it possible to wade the edges and fish with a fly rod? Was also wondering if I should bring a throw net for bait? Any feedback would be appreciated.
John, is it possible in theory? Yes. Is it practical, no. There are a few areas on the back side the are wadable. They are small and get the occasional fish, but to get to flats that are worthwhile, you just gotta have a boat.....
If you get up around 7 seas resort try fishing the "cut". I was there for 18 days in September and fished there almost daily. We started around 4:30pm and fished till 8.(don't forget your flashlight) Sardines are cheap to purchase, Just ask around. We went bonefishing also and loved it but relaxing at the cut with the local fisher"persons" (some were women) was wonderful. We gave away our catch every night and they were very thankful. The local kids are helpful also. but be warned, You will draw a group of kids wanting to assist you!!!! Bring extra hooks also. That's what we gave the kids who helped us. (along with some extra line also) Plus tackle can get expensive. So it doesn't hurt to bring extra
One Barrel and Sprite.....It doesn't get any better than that!
