THE CREEPY CRAWLER

Updated: Feb 10, 2021


Bonefish Bahamas
A Grand Bahama Crawler

One of the most unique aspects of our fishery here at h2o bonefishing is how, when conditions are such, big bonefish will get into water so shallow you would not think it was possible for them to even swim let alone successfully hunt their prey. They can be found literally crawling across the flat with their backs completely out of the water with tail on full display and their dorsal fin often laid back. At times however they will straighten up that dorsal fin, drastically changing their profile. They often seem a different fish when they do. It really is something to behold where 50% of the bonefishes body is above water as it wriggles, slides and writhes across the open flat in search of crabs and other prey to eat.
