Spanish Wells is surrounded by flats, and what make Spanish Wells unique is that right off of the flats sits the Atlantic Ocean. You don’t need to go out a mile or 2 miles to be in the Atlantic, some of our flats drop directly into the Atlantic Ocean. Important? You better believe it!
The Atlantic Ocean produces the largest bonefish in the world. More than any other ocean, including the Caribbean. Leave your 8 pound test line at home, you will need a 20 pound test leader with a 16 pound tippet tied off of it when fishing in the flats around Spanish Wells.
Anticipation is one of the most powerful sensations in angling for bonefish. In clear-water flats fishing, the greatest thrill comes in the instance between when the fish is spotted, and the presentation is taken or refused. The combination of visual drama and tactile electricity between angler and quarry truly gets the heart pumping!
