I haven't stayed at Fedel's but am a multi-year Acklins veteran. I believe Fedel is up in Pestel, which is on the north end of the island - Felton Rolle is at Salina where we stay, and he is an amazing cook. Food is outstanding.
The lodge is beautiful, facing Salinas Bay. We had the best luck when brought up to the incredible flats to the north around Roker's and Felton will point you to the 'secret' spot.
He provides a vehicle to get up to any part of the island, including Pestel where you can fish with Fedel.
There is a small restaurant in Lovely Bay where you can arrange for a lobster dinner with conch fritters and a Kalik or two that you won't soon forget.
The island has grown a lot since my first visit, but the bonefishing is primitive and pure. I will go back soon, probably this winter.
