We stayed a week at Harbour Club Villas and Marina in the Turtle Tail area of Providenciales away from the hustle and bustle of Grace Bay. This was my third visit to Harbour Club and as usual our accommodations were immaculate and our hosts, Barry and Marta, were most accommodating with the most recent dining and fishing suggestions.
Each morning, I waded right out front of the Harbour Club in Flamingo and Turtle Lake. Although I caught my first DIY bonefish in Flamingo several years ago, I spent most of my time kayaking around Turtle Lake where the incoming tide produced many tailing fish in the early morning. In fact, I am already planning a return visit next year to coincide with an early morning incoming tide.
All in all, Providenciales is a great winter getaway spot, very “spouse friendly” and a good choice for DIY fishing when you don’t have all day to fish.”

stayed at Harbour Club Villas and Marina to do his research on DIY bonefishing in the Turks and Caicos Islands for his book.

I use primarily spinning tackle. I know how to fly fish but I am not a real expert at it and I do not really enjoy it.
So after a discussion with a friend of an employee who went to the Turks armed with only spinning tackle and who caught a lot of bonefish, I made my first trip to the Turks in 2009 and most recently in January. The clear advantage to spinning gear over fly tackle is the wind. There is usually a 10-20 mph wind blowing on the Turks and a spinning rod gives you much more control than you could ever get from a fly rod. And yes, I can hear the fly fishing enthusiasts challenging me on that fact but I know what I prefer. My first fishing excursion was a half day trip with a guide who brought me a few miles outside the harbor. There was no wind – one of my only times bonefishing where there was no wind – and he proceeded to point out bonefish ahead of the boat which I would cast to. It took about an hour to adjust my style of fishing to being a bit stealthier as bonefish do spook easily. Finally my first bonefish was hooked.
Sure, I have seen how they run when hooked on television shows but none of that prepared me for the wild ride this fish put on.
On our last trip in January we caught 21 bonefish the first day all ranging between 2.75 – 5.5 lbs. The second day we fished for bigger fish only landing 10 of them and lost three that we could see weighed in excess of 7 lbs.
When not fishing with a guide there are plenty of ‘drive-by’ fishing opportunities on the island of Provo.
