Couple of trips is a great idea. Don't rule out the short week, Saturday to Wednesday. As our knowledge of the area increases three full days on the water can get you into a lot of fish without burning a ton of vacation. By using MLK, Presidents or other long weekends you could do this trip and only burn two vacation days. Keeps the Mrs happy How's this for a possible schedule:

Fri night: Fly to Nassau
Sat. Morning flight to Acklins, Half day bonefishing
Sun. Full day fish
Mon. Full day fish
Tues. Full day fish
Wed. Tailers at dawn on delectable, 10:30 fly home

Do this on a Holiday weekend and it will be a little lighter on the wallet (not that the original trip wasn't more than reasonable) and you conserve vacation days

Unpredictable work schedule may intervene, but I'd like to get my name on the list. It's been five years since I fished the Keys/Marquesas, so I reckon I've got some practicing and tying to do.

When I think back about it, Acklins was truly a bonefisher's heaven. As Rev. Rolle says, "only heaven is better"!

I almost welcome the bitter winter knowing I will be there again.
