Anything Happening down South?

Just wondering if there are any reports out there from recent (early spring/summer) trips?

I am headed down to an old friends new vacation setup on Exuma in November - he's also planing to build a Bonefish Lodge I have already aksed him if he's looking for a manager and will tap him for a sponsorship too.

Apparently they've had their share of bad weather in their part of the Bahamas this spring/summer. He has had some very large single bones on the beach in front of his property however. No big schools - just the occaisional 8 - 10 pounder looking for the perfect presentation. I can't wait!!

Please let him know I will offer my web design services for barter. I don't ask much, just a place to rest my head between photo shoots for the site each winter

Adrian - this is wicked selfish, because it conjures up ideas of board membership patronage and discount trip packages and all that other stuff.

Not wishing to cross any chickens before they hatch ahead of counting my bridges before I get to them in a mixed metaphorically manner of speaking :eyecrazy: but yes

Adrian,
My wife and I made the usual early march pilgrimage this year.
The fishing was really poor the first 4 days. Partially due to the fact there was a lot of water so the fish were spending a long time up in the mangroves. Also a bit more windy than normal I believe and I actual got rained on 2 days in a row which is first for me there.It did pick up a bit on the last 3 but no real block buster days. Only saw a couple large schools of fish in the 1-4 range and had a few shots at fish in the 8-10 range. Almost all my fishing was done on the mosstwon side. Did see a huge permit off mosstown but he was cruising out faster than we could get in. Not too much different on the island that I saw. There is a new bar next to the Coconut cove at Charlie Pfluegers cottages and there were visably more workers on the island for the 4 seasons that is still perpetually behind in completion. That to me will be my main concern when and if ever it finishes, I have a feeling it will put a lot more pressure on the fishery and there may be alot more new boats/guides on the water trying to accommodate the people trying to link a day or 2 fishing with the golf, all just speculation on my part of course.
We have not decided if we are going there next year or not, I have been thinking of trip to Belize just to try something different.
Anyway I am sure your November trip will be awesome and a nice newly run lodge there may be something to look forward to.
JohnP
