RE:Ideas on where to go in the Bahamas?

As he mentioned in his email, he's happy to help us. Fisherman's code of ethics

Also Joel Moxey of Moxey's Bonefish Lodge replied:

Andros Island offers perhaps the greatest variety of fishing over anywhere in the World. You can wade or fish from the boat for different size of fish.

You can fish schools of fish by wading or you can fish for double digit fish cruising the flats by themseleves or in pairs. An endless expanse of backcountry strewn with mangroves on Andros' west side is so vast that it will take you months of fishing to cover.

Alternatively you can fish the bights or the east side of the island with its many ocean flats. You will find large schools of fish on the east coast flats and larger individual fish as well.

I've fished and dive Acklins Island extensively and recommend the Island for those who are looking for one of the remotest place on God's earth.
However, be sure and take plenty of insect repellent. Fishing promises to be good and you probably will not see another soul fishing the flats there. Good fishing.


Tightlines,
Joel


Thanks Joel!
