The last time on Acklins, I found a lot of the flats were very soft and very difficult wading. By the end of the week, I could barely walk due to the pain
I have made two trips to Acklins. Once to the north and once to the south. My experience was that the southern flats, esp the ones that you take the boat to, are easier wading for the most part. These are the same flats that require the "death march" to reach without the boat. Providing easy access to these flats is the beauty of Feltons place. There is probably 5 to 6 miles of fishable area there with plenty of hard coral or sand flats.
