    Rent a car and check out the south end of the island. Do you have this book?

    An option is to fly over to Andros (Fresh Creek on the north island or Mangrove Cay). There are daily flights and its about 20 minutes each way. Lots of DIY opportunities not far from either airport. Local taxi drivers know many of the flats and can take you there directly.

    WPHorn, no can do, I am there for my Daughters tennis, she is playing in a tournament, so my fishing is just in the morning or evening when time allows, I am only going to be able to wade in Nassau

    Check here lots of really good articles http://www.deneki.com/2010/12/top-bonefishing-posts-of-2010/ and here is another excellent source of information on bonefish http://bonefishonthebrain.com/ On another note if you don't already have it purchase Chico Fernandez's "Fly Fishing for Bonefish" the authoritative text on bonefishing with the first 4 chapters by Aaron Adams.....Excellent Book!

    Zhunter - check out this you tube video http://youtu.be/BIp9Tdla5-g the guy fishing looks like he used a local guy to put him on the fish wading. You may also want to post on the Tropical Sportsman section here on forums as there is lots of guys there who know those waters.

    Are there bonefish in the Bahamas = yes. Is Nassau in the Bahamas = yes. Can you catch bonefish at Nassau = good luck - unfortunately you are on the wrong island.
