Hi Marty,

Yup!, a deathly sharp 7inch Normark fillet knife goes in my checked bag every time. Can't tell you how many times my bags had Airport Customs/Security seals on them indicating they've been opened...

Hi Marty,

We bring a medium sized "soft-sided" cooler loaded with ice no matter whether we're fishing from Kayak and/or on foot or by car. One of the best parts of the Bahamian fishing experience is being...

Hi Marty,

I've resisted posting a reply to your queire just waiting to see what other folks come up with. Around 2006/2007, my buddy and I were in the same boat as you. Being frequent visitors to the island...

Hi folks, came across this upsetting video of fish netting/spearing on Inagua...

...disturbing to say the least. I only hope that all the fish they caught were eaten and not used as fertilizer or for some other purpose.

Here's the Youtube link...

Hey Figen,

Three years since I've had bone snot on my hands. Reason is mostly due to my workup towards retirement. I am now retired at 54 years old and am ready to fish my ass off.

Got at least a couple of...

Hi Okiplug,

Sorry to say it, but you're chasing the goose that laid the golden egg if you want good maps of Eleuthera's road network. They just don't exist beyond rudimentary maps showing the Queens Hwy. and...

Hi Marty

Savannah Sounds tailing bones are indeed frustrating. One thing you might try that I know works for me is to take note which way the tide/current is running. Typically, bones tail into the current....

Marty,

My favorite at the GHB fish fry is the BBQ chicken with Johnny bread, cole slaw and Peas with rice. Before that though, I'll down a conch salad and following the fun, I'll bring back a double order...

Hi Walt,

Yes, the fly stands nicely with a defensive/fighting posture. Funny you should mention it...I was also inspired by the avalon fly after tying a few of them. But when I tested them in one of my...

Hi Marty,

Here's my thoughts on your questions...

1) How much do you estimate in incoming tide might be delayed on a flat if it is directly in the face of a 10 mph or 20 mph? Conversely, does it start to...

...is this crab something like what you're looking for?

Hi Marty,

Funny you should ask about a small white crab fly pattern. Here's one I developed recently that I call the "Castanet Crab" Castanet (you know!, the musical instrument of Spanish...

Hey guys,

I've given this one a lot of thought. Most of my DIY bonefishy adventures included the use of an inflatable kayak on Eleuthera. Having the kayak to get around was a godsend not only in the fact...

Hey Bonehead

Ah!...so you've met the invenerable Alvin Johnson in Deep Creek. Had the same issue with him 4 or so years ago...a real scammer that one. That poor dude actually lives in the back room of the small...

Hey RC!!!

Last I looked...Turneffe Island Resort had some great rates for this year...over a $1,000.00 discounted. 7 nites/6 days guided fishing for $2,300.00 (plus only a additional "single-suppliment" of...

Hi!,

Your reduced rates are awefully tempting. Could you describe to me how your "Water Shuttle to the flats" works?.

I suppose that this would involve something like morning drop-off/afternoon...

Hi MartyG

Those Savannah Sound bones are sure hot and cold.

Next time when they're tailing heavily in shallow water, lengthen your leader (16ft) time it right and drop a small crab fly right on top of them...

Stanton

Hi Vince,

In the Spring of 2008, Stanton had started asking for signatures accepting his Ins. underwriters $1000.00 deductable. I said to him "what's up big guy" (he reminds me of Idi Amin he...

Hey Vince,

Glad to hear you had a good trip to my favorite Bahamian Island.

Last spring, I heard a song at the "Friday night Fish Fry" in Govenors Harbour...the lyrics sang about "Bonefish Dundee"...for the...

Hi Vince!,

Great Job Vince!

That's quite the "short" production...worthy of an "Outdoor Life" episode!!!

The sight of those bones cruising and feeding along what I presume was an "Atlantic-side" beach...

Hey gang!...off to Eleuthera tomorow!

Hi friends!,

Though not like Aklins or Crooked!, Eleuthera is still my favorite place in the world for a relaxing holiday.

This'll be my 7th annual spring trip to the Island and she never fails...

This boxfish my buddy caught on Eleuthera fell to a small #6 mantis shrimp immitation. Looking at the fishe's small tail, you wouldn't think that it could ramp up enough horsepower to even take...

Hey Josko!,

I've read many of your posts regarding bonefishing. Seems to me as if you have the "Game" well in hand. I got to thinking what I do that others that I've watched didn't do. I'm going to describe a...
