There are still bonefish in Bimini. Doubtless, there are still lots and lots of bonefish. However… it is certain that there will be fewer bonefish than there used to be and the main culprit will certainly be Bimini Bay Resort.
You can’t dredge the flats, rip up the mangroves and fill in the tidal creeks and pretend it doesn’t matter… well… I guess you can… and there are plenty of folks out there willing to do just that.
Of course, the issue isn’t unique to Bimini… it is happening all over the bonefishing world (OK, not everywhere, but enough places to matter). It seems too many people want the Bahamian/Caribbean Dream and are willing to pave over and cut down anything they need to in order to get it.
Go to Bimini soon… who knows how it will fish in a decade or so.
