The Long Island Bonefishing Lodge specializes in “assisted” DIY walk and wade fishing.   The idea is to provide the fisherman with a true long walk and wade bonefish “hunting” experience with the guide offering advice and transportation to and from productive  bonefishing  flats.  It is this  “assisted” DIY walk and wade fishing adventure that we are trying to promote and want to become known for.

The format of an “assisted” day consists of a guide picking up the guests at the lodge dock and transporting them by boat (3 – 10 minute ride) to a particular flat or set of flats where the guide will first instruct the fisherman on how to fish a particular flat, how the tides will influence the fishing during the day and what flies and strategies to use.The guide will remain on the flats at all times and the fisherman will have walkie talkies so they can be in contact with the boat at all times and if necessary the guide will move the fisherman to another flat if they are not experiencing success.

Long Island bonefishing flats consist of mostly hard sand bottom  spotted with turtle grass. At least 70% of Long Island bonefishing flats are wadable flats making it an ideal ' assisted' DIY destination.

Bonefish will be the primary targeted species in mostly shallow (less than 30 inches) water with the occasional deeper drop off.  On average the bonefish are 3-6 pounds with “papa” going up to eight pounds.  Typical fly patterns work with size #4 and #6 being standard.

Other species encountered are barracuda, snapper, sharks and rays.

Long Island Bonefishing Lodge was designed and built to meet the needs of the traveling fisherman and is ideally located at the waters edge on Deadman’s Cay. The main building was built utilizing an open concept to highlight the combination of the main dining area, bar and lounge.   Off the lounge is a gorgeous deck perched over the water where a beer at the end of the day tastes just that much better.

The  accommodations consist of two duplex style cottages with each side furnished for two fishermen.  The rooms are comfortably furnished with two queen size beds, closet space and one bathroom. There are decks off each cottage over looking the water with ample room to store all your gear.
