Jim -

You're IN! Glad to hear it too, a fellow Monomoy flats rat is always welcome on a bonefish trip in my book. The similarities are amazing, in fact I would have to say that each has helped the other dramatically for me over the years even though this will only be my 10th bonefish trip which can't compare to the days on Monomoy.

Long Island is not a sure thing yet, the flats in the Deadman's Cay area require a boat to access and the jury is out on the DIY friendliness. We should not rule out Eleuthera for a huge range of options from end to end, lodging options are excellent and DIY friendliness tops. If we can manage a workable Acklins tour that would be the ultimate for fishing the 1,000 square miles of bonefish flats whose shoreward edges are accessible without a boat, not to mention that both Acklins and Crooked are largely unexplored bonefish habitat like Columbus would have seen.

We have been mulling over some very good options, and we need to nail down the destination in December but let's leave the options open for a little longer until we can process the information overload.

Welcome to team bonefish!

Hi gang,

Just to throw a wrench into your gears...the more popular the DIY destination of choice...the more likely it is that prime rentals will be already booked (or going fast) during the prime months of March, April and May. Perhaps you should start making availability inquiries for some of your possible destinations. The availability or non-availability of rentals may be a determining factor of where you'll go.

I leave for the Yucatan for a two week boneanza this Sunday...trip report when I get back. Gonna give my "Ultimate Shrimp" patterns a workout.

Later,

Actually, I have not spoken at all, other than to keep the field of view wide enough to avoid tunnel vision. I agree the deadline for deciding on the location coming up quickly, but am not prone to jump to conclusions before all the legwork is done.

Based on others posts and out of consideration for bandwidth, I started a new thread as requested (each time a big thread is read it loads the whole thing including the images I put in there).

Things seem to be reaching a more thought-out approach as time passes, IMHO. Keep the ideas coming they are great!

Whoops! Sorry Juro. Spoken was meant to be 'responded'. Spent some time doing housing searches and came up ditto for our price range in the Acklins-Crookeds. Not much there and what is available is very pricey. Have you found anything there? Cherokee Sound on Abaco is another option.
