Spin Fishing

Spin Fishing with Alvin Greene – Andros Island, Bahamas

Although fly fishing is usually used for catching bonefish, spinning tackle is also effective and is particularly suited to barracuda, jacks and sharks.

Some of my clients bring a spinning rod loaded with 20lb line and rigged with wire leader in case we spot a decent size barracuda on the flats. Silver poppers and tube lures work very well at encouraging a barracuda strike. Red and silver popper lures also often get a shark to hit and it’s pretty exciting to see a 5 foot bull shark stick its head out of the water to nail your lure.

If you’d prefer to use spinning tackle for bonefishing that’s fine with me but please bring all lures and tackle that you’ll need.
