The Search For Bonefish
Keep in mind that they are high on the menu for other predators. As such, the most obvious place to look for bonefish will be in the shallow flats.
Bonefish develop their complexion depending on the environment they inhabit. A bonefish living predominantly in white sand flats will be silver to white. In contrast, these fish inhabite a darker flat bottom of coral or seaweed will be slightly darker, adapting to fit in with their surroundings. No wonder they are described as ‘the ghosts of the flats’!
Also, bonefish have a symbiotic relationship with stingrays. As the rays move along they disturb prey like crabs and shrimps, making them very easy and vulnerable to pick off.
