Said 'gracious' guides are on record as having tried to make it illegal to fish DIY on Exuma, we've had extensive discussions on that even here on this forum (do a search).
If you had no such troubles last year, maybe they've gotten over their animosity toward unguided anglers. Maybe not, but I won't take any chances wasting my DIY money to go there again unless perhaps I am sailing the Exuma archipelago someday, far away from the pompous aggressors on Great Exuma.
I'll spend my money on Acklins.
