Good cause too.

I'd bring tan gotchas with pearl and pink highlights, turneffe crab and variations, petersons spawning shrimp, and ask Adrian about the "Pfleuger Hoy" a must for tailing and softwater presentations. I fish a saltwater version of my steelhead creeper for tailers in skinny water with great results.

For tarpon... Bahamas tarpon aren't likely to be very picky. I would venture anything that looks like a pinfish, mullet, pilchard, shrimp or crab will get them to explode on it provided you can find them in the mood.

Permit are around, just not very well understood by most Bahamians. With that many days you are sure to see one.

I had a couple shots on Acklins last February. I envy you!
