The huge number of flats at Los Roques offers more wading and stalking opportunities than almost any other saltwater fishing location. Some are vast, some are just small ‘pancakes’. And some are idyllic beach flats where the bonefish are constantly on the look out for crustacean and baitfish. Fishing in Los Roques is a dream of the ultimate sporting adventure, wading in transparent azure and turquoise waters lapping against virgin white coral sands.
The stalking of bonefish by wading the flats is such a feature of Los Roques that fishermen are accompanied by both a guide and a boatman. While you are fishing, the boatman will move his ‘panga’ to the other end of the flats to meet you there, and to save the sometimes long walk back, against the wind.
Bonefish average 3-5lbs, with double figure catches not infrequent. Stalking them with one of our knowledgeable guides generates alternating panics of anxiety followed by deliria of excitement.
