From the looks of it, so long as we can all agree on a week I'd say it's going to be twice that number of members by the time everyone reads this thread today. That would be a neat trip, a dozen or so guys. We'd certainly get to cover the water!

Bahamas on a dime

I'm up to the ridiculous. And being retired I have the time. Keep me in touch. However, I like to fish while wading. That not ony means abundant flats, but flats that can be waded. Some are so soft, they just as well be 6' deep. Also, the most reliable weather is after April, and I am already planning for Belize in May and Baja in July.

I am up for it and would love to join in the adventure!
Put me on any list that developes from this post.

Juro - Do some research (I will as well) on the locations that most of the Guided Trips use. That will give you some indication of what is available and what the island offers (fishing, eating, drinking, cars Yaks, etc) as well as transportation, flights and other possibilities...then adapt your search for fishing spots and home rentals around your new updated info.

OK - sounds like we have the makings of a great outing, epic in fact.

But next year is not ridiculous. It's simply island feverish. Going this year... now THAT's ridiculous!

Anyone out there crazy enough to try to fit something in before spring options arise?

I am happy to wait until next year, but I am thinking who knows? I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.

I am thinking maybe just a few days on the keys, cheap flights nowadays and camping on **** key or ***** ****** park, etc. On the cheap, kayak rental, etc.

i nEeD tO gO bOnEFisHiNg !!!! :eyecrazy: :hehe:

Next year is a definite.

How's about the end of the Bahamian world..."Mayaguana"...?

Fishing is from canoes for bones that honestly average 4-6lbs. What I've read about this small Island...has got me keenly interested. Seems like it has super DIY potential.

RIDICULOUS!

OK folks... let's get ridiculous.

I need someone who is crazy enough to take a few days on the Florida Keys the beginning of the week starting the 18th April (sun or mon) up to the latter half of the week.

I need to be in San Francisco Spey-o-rama that following weekend so already wrote the whole week off, and my family is away so I am home alone twiddling thumbs on spring break.

Tarpon fishing is getting good, bonefish and permit are on the flats in numbers.

Camping for up to 8 people at $26 per night, shared rental vehicle. Kayak rentals available.

Packing list:

- shorts
- sandals
- hat
- sunglasses
- crazy charlies
- limes

That's about it!

You WUSSES! I suppose the crickets keep you awake too

$207 round trip on American Airlines from Boston... $13/night lodging if split in two, 8.35 if three, 3.50 each if four... the site holds two cars and 8 campers soft sand ON THE WATER on Long Key... at those prices you can even afford the Roopster muffs!

Yes,

I would definitely be up for something like this. This year is probably not possible, but next year sounds good.

Add to packing list--

SPF45 (two bottles!)
sea-lice repellant

Matt -

My vote would be to escape from the nastiest darkest days of deep winter, but for those of us with significant others they may never forgive us. Midwinter in any case.

We might also consider a separate couples trip. The more I search, the more rentals I've found of this price and caliber and we could definitely accomodate. That way everyone has fun that week, and chances are the guys would shop less and fish more during the day, and everyone could do their own thing or have social nights scheduled thru the week. The ladies could shop all day provided we can fish all day. A win-win!

We would however have to retain the angler's only trip as first priority. The inaugural trip will be hardcore angling and the couples clave something that we do later on with the knowledge we gather on the first exploratory.
