    Bag a Record Bonefish

    Maybe you've tried fishing, fly-fishing and even deep-sea fishing. But have you tried bonefishing?

    If you're ready to try your hand at it, then head to Sandy Point. There, you'll find pristine water barely touched by man and a warm, consistent climate that makes for ideal bonefishing. 

    What's really challenging about this type of fishing is that the bonefish are hard to find. But you'll know you've spotted a bonefish when you see a silver or gray fish with a long body built for speed.

    Once you're in an area where they're known to hang out, you can catch them in lots of different ways.

    The easiest way is to try throwing chum into the water to attract them. Once they arrive, throw a baited hook into the midst of them!
