Fly Fishing

Looking for info on guided or unguided flats fishing in Guanaja.

Will be traveling late Jan 2011 or Feb 2011.

I read stories of 5lb average Bonefish , lots of Tarpon and some Permit to be had.

Where to stay in the best areas to fish.

Thanks in advance for any info

JL

JL,

I fished out of flyfish guanaja last May, it was fantastic. LOTS of bone fish and permit. In certain places theres good numbers of tarpon and snook, some big ones too. The weather was perfect, bring lots of sunscreen and bug repellant, the sand flees can be bad at times. One day almost grand slammed, but broke off two bones and never landed one. There is some deeper water fishing for wahoo, dorado, amberjacks, ect. that can be kind of hit or miss though. Best of luck!

Hello-

There are many great locals to fish around Guanaja. But the best option would be to have a boat and a local guide. We run a fly fishing lodge on Jones Key, surrounded by miles of wadeable flats. Our guides know when and where to fish the island based on the winds, tides, and moon phase. There are plenty of bonefish up to 5 lbs and this November '10 I saw more bones approaching 10 lbs than I have ever seen. There are resident tarpon from 5 to over 100 lbs but they are not prolific. The permit fishing is why we are in Guanaja. There are sightings daily for the hardest fish to catch on a fly rod! Some clients say that they see more bonefish in a single day than they seen in a week in the Bahamas......

Check out our listing on this site under Fly Fish Guanaja.

Email me if you have more questions, Steve@flyfishguanaja.com.

I am planning to go back to Guanaja in March with my family and during the trip I always do some fly and ultra light fishing. We stay at the Guanaja Island Club which is on the North side. I like Grahams too but there are too many sand flies there and you are trapped on the little island and can only get off when they will give you a boat. Fishing is really good though if that’s all you do and don’t have kids. The GIC has lots of Bonefish right in front for the place right off the dock and the hotel beach all you want. Take a walk up towards the waterfall /creek mouth and you can catch permit and Tarpon. You can also walk over towards Michael Rock 10 minutes and do some outstanding fishing too. There are more things to do on the North side and you are not a prisoner there

We split a few weeks between Bo's Island House and Graham's Place in 2008. The bonefishing continues east of Michael's Rock. We didn't have a problem with sand flies on Graham's but you're correct that there isn't much to do there; I enjoyed a relaxing week reading in a hammock while my husband fished. We enjoyed a little hike from Bo's, the snorkeling from shore was incredible, and diving with Bo was a pleasure - best diving I've ever done.
