Saw this in the Miami Herald…
The Islamorada team of angler Mark Cockerham and guide captain Mark Gilman last week captured their third win in the 41st annual Bonefish World Championship/Islamorada All Tackle Bonefish Tournament.
The top team released the largest fish of the three-day tournament, estimated at 11 pounds.
I’d bet that they were using bait, as it was an “All Tackle” tournament and the best way to get a bonefish to eat an artificial fly is to have it be a live shrimp. It does beg the question, “If you can catch more with bait, why fly fish?” That’s a question asked by people that haven’t experienced it… like people that think chocolate covered bacon is wrong.
“There is just something about it.”
How many times have you said that or heard it in this context?
I like shrimp. I just prefer them in cocktail form.
