April is a good time for the Keys. Should be some excellent fishing. I am heading down to the Keys next Tuesday for a much needed vacation. If you need any research done let me know. I promise to leave a couple of fish for those lucky enough to go next month.

Also, If anyone has experience with Cobia on a fly rod, let me know. My contacts tell me they are all over the place down there right now.

Light tarpon tackle and pinfish imitations are good starts. I'd probably draw the lower limit for cobia with a 10-wt., and would prefer an 11-wt. if the option existed. They were swimming near schools of Tarpon on the Gulf side of Key West when I was down there this time last year. Good luck!

I would love to be apart of one of these trips sometime. It won't be for couple of seasons though. I'm booked until the end of 2005. None of my fishing buddies are interested in travelling. I'm also thinking of getting some group trips together for people with families as well. But exploration sounds more interesting to me. That's why I fish, afterall.

Juro,

Along this same vien...

My dad was talking to a guy from this sportsman club who had just come back from a Month in Belieze. He rented a Cottage (Bungalo) with water & fishing access the cost was $600, For the Month (not per week!). He caught Bones on his own & did a Guide one day (for $275) & caught 22 fish!

He also said he got a decent airfare out of RI (T.F. Green I guess)

I could ask by dad to get more details from him if there is interest?

Bumping this back up. Starting to plan vaca. time for next year and was wondering if there's been anymore talk of this trip. I'd be willing to do a lot of leg work and organizing if people are still interested. Anything for a week of bones in the middle of winter

Greetings:
Just recently got turned on to this site. I have in the past tried to put together a group or 2 for a trip to Abaco. I find that ya gotta just pick a date, decide on the place to fish, place to stay, and provide an overview of the logistical support plans
(Beer, food, number of bedrooms, and so on).....then do the math..throw out an estimated price and work with the guys who wanna go....I agree with an earlier post of "Damn the guides" and also agree with "Damn the Outfitters"

Thumbs up Anyone up for the not so ridiculous?

These kind of trips used to be the norm,,,,,before the lodges, the hype, etc.
The So. Cal. club I used to belong to did it all the time. Only difference was someone, who had been there before, sponsored the trip. Acting as coordinator. We used to read magazine articles of guys that did this sort of thing. Charter a Grummand Goose to drop you off for a week of 24 hour a day Salmon fishing on some remote island in Alaska. Or bonefishing the Bahamas.
If you dig around on the web you can find sites that list house swaps all over the globe. You would be surprised how many people would love to trade a week, or the whole summer, Bahamas, Hawaii even, for New England, Calif. the Rockies.
Go for it. I may even be tempted to dig out the 7, 9, 11wt single handers.
