Report from Southern Waters

Although there's one more week to go down in the Bahamas, I thought I'd share a few of the pics from the trip so far.  Everyone has had great fishing and when the tides, sun and wind all lined up, it was close to epic.  As always, plenty of Bonefish were caught each and everyday and groups had great action on Snook and Tarpon when we chased those fish.  A few lucky guys hooked Permit this year and one was even brought to hand a few weeks ago, so that was pretty cool!  The group two weeks ago brought a couple double digit bonefish to hand, which is a very special thing, but not uncommon in the areas we fish.  Oceanside flats that are located near deeper water are prevalent on this island and thus are home to some giant Bonefish on a low tide.  If you're looking to catch the biggest Bonefish of your life, this just might be the place.  This is always a very special trip for us each year, and once again, this island has shown us that the potential for a Flats Slam (tarpon, snook, bonefish and permit) is a reality just about everyday you head out.  We even hooked a couple sharks during the evening happy hour after a day of fishing, which is prime entertainment for all parties involved. For now, I'll have to wrap my head around getting back into ice fishing, but perhaps even better is the fact that open water fishing isn't really too far off now, but maybe that's wishful thinking.....
