We've finally decided to make the crossing at some point this summer and I've decided I'm not leaving until I catch a bonefish. Doing some preliminary scouting.
Am I way off in thinking these areas (arrows) are a.good place to start? Or should I be looking somewhere else? Am I even on the right side of the island??
Getting to the north side of the island where you have marked is not easy. Those cuts can be tricky to navigate at low tide because there are random shallow spots and flats in the middle of those channels/cuts. Some of them are marked by the local's PVP pipes but it's not something I'd run through on a 31' center console.
Anyways, assuming you can get to where you have marked, you'll find bonefish there. The bottom is mostly yellow sand/rocks so you shouldn't have trouble wading. There are some grass flats.
I'll give you one specific spot - if you enter the cut between Little Harbour Cay and Sweeting's Cay from the south (not easy to enter because of the shallow sand bars at the mouth) you'll pass the couple houses there on the east point of Sweetings. Go into the cut and hook a right. About 300 yards into the cut there will be a large flat on your left (to the north) including a very small mangrove island. Pull it up on google satellite maps. If you hit that flat at the right incoming tide there are typically about 50 tailing bonefish covering the flat.
