If you want to catch a bonefish the size of a mullet, go ahead and book a trip to Mexico or Belize. Have fun. I’ve caught brown trout bigger.
Islamorada bonefish are different. They have shoulders. The average Islamorada bonefish is normally in the 6-9 lb. range with fish in the double digits common.
Shots on world record-sized fish are always a possibility. Frustration is simply a part of the bonefish game but once you’ve hooked an Islamorada bonefish that has you looking at a near empty spool, you’ll understand.
