There is a push to get some new parks created in the Bahamas, specifically on Grand Bahama.
National Parks are created when a society decides it wants to protect its natural heritage. We’ve been very successful at this and our National Parks are crown jewels, special places.
I’m glad to see the Bahamas embracing what is special about their islands. I’m guessing that these parks would not ban bonefishing, as some of these parks are in the best stuff, especially the East End proposed park.
The site has videos you can watch with a bit more information about each proposed park. The East End park even has Flip catching a bonefish.
PS… If you’ve fished the East End, you’ve almost certainly been by the spot in the above picture. When I was last there I actually caught one or two bonefish right on this flat.
