Well it seems most islands will require a layover at Nassau, so Acklins is a good candidate afterall, eh?

It's ridiculously endowed with flats. I can attest firsthand to that having just flown over it.

It's unexploited by tourism. I would expect that there would be no conflict of interest with any guides there, and that the bonefish would be quite exploitable provided we had mobility to sample the various flats that surround the island and it's neighbor Crooked Island, or provided we can locate the lodging options we could bounce around until we find a place within steps to the flats.

The tourist reviews say this island is incredible for bonefishing solitude, but they complain that there is no one there to enjoy your fishing with, meaning no casinos, night clubs, carnavals, etc. Sounds good to me! Bound to be very affordable too.

My suitcase will be very simple on such a trip. Shorts, sandals, shirt, hat and sunglasses. Basic tying kit, fishing gear. Sunblock. Throwaway cooler with ice, beer and limes.

Bouncing to lodge B from lodge A will only be a matter of stuffing quick dry shirts into the rolling duffel and heading for the other hotel, in the event we do not try to commit to a big cabana style place as shown in the ads.

One things for sure, we won't freeze to death
