Macabi or bonefish fishing

In this short article I am going to talk about really fun and vibrant fishing, that if you are lucky enough to live in areas where these types of fish live, you can enjoy it. The Macabí or also known as bonefish is one of the funniest specimens for fishing on the shores of the beaches. Undoubtedly they are the fish that run harder when they bite the hook, and although it has a medium size and weight, they look like larger fish when they grab the bait and shoot out. In this article, I want to describe to you the most effective way to be able to make excellent catches of Macabi from the shores of the beaches. Normally the macabíes are located frequently in all the tropical and subtropical strip, the most abundant sites are on the beaches. In their early stages of life, you can find them in numerous schools, but as adults, they only like to move as a couple.

They are silver and the snout ends in a conical way, a feature that allows you to “sniff” the crustaceans found in the sand. They do not have teeth, therefore it is very simple to take the hook from the mouth once the captures. Another important thing is that this species is much appreciated by sport fishermen, I recommend that when you go fishing this magnificent fish you catch and release any Macabi you catch, you will definitely contribute to this species keep reliving the adrenaline to many fishermen, among which I include myself.

How can we capture great maca bites? tricks and tips

The first thing to detect is that the water where you are going to perform the casts should be clear, shallow and a slight interaction with the wind on the surface. To give you an idea, I always try to introduce myself at least with the water to the thighs, and in that depth to perform the casts, as a curious point I specify that on several occasions when the bonefish feed, I have noticed that the rear fin leave out of the water while digging in the sand.

The most commonly used method or technique is fly fishing or spinning fishing with artificial lures of low weight. The results with these two techniques for fishing maca bites are incredible. In the case of spinning fishing, for example, you should try to use some artificial small, if they can be yellow nibs you would be excellent, you should try to let the lure fall to the bottom, and with small vertical touches go giving similarity to some crustacean from that beach, on the other hand, in the case of fly fishing you have to perform the waveform sets and that the small artificial one rubs the surface of the water, it is there where these specimens most strongly attack. You must keep in mind not to close the brake of your spool to the maximum, in this way you will avoid breaking your thread since the thickness of the spool must fluctuate between 10 to 12 lb for efficient fishing of the Macabi.

With these little tricks and tips we can go out there and have a really fun day fishing this “playful” fish that although it is true is not one of the great sea monsters, it will give us adrenaline moments and enjoy this our great sport, the fishing, which in the end is what it is about, having fun, being in touch with nature and living new and vibrant experiences in our fisheries.
