The Keys used to have lots more bonefish then they do today but even when they did, those way above average big boys where among the more difficult to feed fish I have ever encountered. Some two decades ago I was tarpon fishing in the backcountry behind Islamorada in a "lake" surrounded by shallower turtle grass flats. We saw a tail, a big tail, come up and poled after it. Turned out to be a group of three bonefish in the, and I am not kidding, 14 pound class. We followed them for what seemed like all day (perhaps 45 min.) and did not spook them nor did I ever get in a good enough position to make a serious presentation to them either. They were very exciting to observe and essentially impossible to catch.I spent two half days on a boat with a guide in the Keys fishing for Bones. We saw a total of one pod made one cast and no luck. Bonefish are still a fish on my list.
