Somerset Beach and Creek
It was a bright cloudless day with a some what cool breeze out of the north. Tide was low around noon so I decided to head out to Somerset once again. The bottom at Somerset is mostly white sand so even on a cloudy day you have good visibility. Today was exceptional. I headed up the creek as the tide was still coming out and I haven’t checked out that area for awhile. Even at low tide there is a hole up by the mangroves where at times a couple schools of bonefish hang out. They were there today and it was almost too easy. I could see the flashes from time to time and all I did was blind cast into the hole. Easy pickins and these were not big fish but not bad at around 2 pounds. It was great until a cuda decided to join in the action. I then headed out to the ocean to look for fish that mill around waiting for the tide to turn again. I found a nice school and these guys aren’t like the dumb ones on the west side. I dropped the fly a little too close and they all headed for the Abacos. I did get a nice one around 7 or 8 pounds wading way out along the sand bars as the tide started to turn. I see Patricia got those pics on the site and I will try to get some from Somerset. A bright day like today the colors toward the reef are awesome. Linda has a digital camera and took most, actually all the shots. I have one of those disposable jobs that has been in my fanny pack for about three years now. One of these days I will get a good digital just like one of these days I will get a gps. My brother keeps telling me how valuable they are especially when going to places like the west side. I told him my birthday was coming up and he could send me one. He then changed his tune and said the gps between my ears was working fine.
