Crooked Island -2011
Designated arrival and departure days for the island are Wednesdays and Saturdays, which means that a seven night / six fishing day itinerary is the standard package. Other schedules (Wednesday to Saturday, or Saturday to Wednesday) can be accommodated based on availability. Please call Yellow Dog for details.
The fishing on the south side of Crooked Island provides numerous bonefish opportunities on vast white sand flats. The operation is limited to six boats per week, something that the owners believe will ensure the quality of fishing for many years to come. The average bonefish in these waters runs three to five pounds, and anglers will find themselves casting at trophy fish on a regular basis. Last season there were over a dozen bonefish caught that tipped the scales at over ten pounds.
With regards to crowds and area development Crooked Island can honestly boast that you will have the flats to yourself. Imagine wading pristine flats that seem endless with no other anglers in sight! Permit can be found most of the year and the guides on the island are eager to fish for them. This is one of the finest Bahamian locations to target the elusive permit and good numbers have been taken on the fly. And, while this is not a prolific or consistent tarpon fishery, tarpon can be jumped and landed in the late spring and summer. Sharks and barracudas are also abundant on the flats, giving anglers additional opportunities and excitement.
The fishing program is under new management and the guide staff is the same and includes Eton McKinney or “Bonefish Shakey.” Randy McKinney, Jeffery Moss and Derrick Ingraham round out the guide team, and all have been guiding since the mid-1990's. They focus on bonefish, but are knowledgeable and excited about the untapped and largely unmolested permit and tarpon fisheries. Overall, they know how to provide you with a quality fishing experience.
Aside from the fantastic bonefishing and flats fishing, you can also experience the thrill of offshore fishing in the deeper waters that surround Crooked Island. These waters are rarely fished due to Crooked’s remote location and the lack of sportfishing boats in the area. Daily catches - which at times can exceed thirty fish - include numerous species and near-world-record wahoo and dolphin (Mahi Mahi). During the late spring and summer months the tuna and marlin bite is usually very consistent. Trolling, chumming, live bait, and fly-fishing are all very productive bluewater techniques throughout the year.
Finally, the inshore fishing has become very popular over the past year, and takes place in one hundred feet of water or less. Species include grouper, snapper, jacks, mackerel, sharks, and cudas, all of which can make for some very fast paced action. Night fishing trips are also available for the hard-core angler!
Crooked Island Fishing Adventures and Pittstown Point Hotel are open year-round. Peak season on the island runs January through June.
January – February
These months are great for trophy bonefish as well as for permit on the flats. Huge barracuda can be consistently targeted during these months as well.
March – May
These months usually produce the most consistent weather for fly fishing on the flats. Large numbers of bonefish in all sizes can be found, and tarpon usually begin to show up in mid-April.
Typical summer days are calm and hot, but regular afternoon showers will cool off the flats, bringing in larger bonefish and tarpon! The bonefishing is best in the mornings, and the tarpon fishing better in the afternoons. Sharks, barracuda, jacks, and snapper are also prevalent in the summer months.
Since Crooked is further south than many of the other islands, these months can offer better weather then the northern islands. Bonefish are found in good numbers in the warmer, sheltered flats protected from the ocean trade winds. This is a good time of the year to look for permit.
BOATS AND EQUIPMENT OFFERED
The guides on Crooked use a variety of flats skiffs, including 18’ Hewes Redfishers, Action Crafts, and Super Seas. All boats are equipped with poling platforms, spacious decks, rod holders, and radios.
Located on the northwest corner of Crooked Island, Pittstown Point is an oceanfront resort with twelve island-style rooms. Each room has two double beds and a private bath. All rooms and baths have been recently renovated, giving guests the choice of air conditioned rooms or accommodations cooled by the natural breezes and ceiling fans. The hotel looks out onto the beautiful Bird Rock Lighthouse, which was built in 1876. The dining room is where American-style breakfasts and fresh Bahamian cuisine for dinner are served (you'll eat packed lunches for your days on the water).
