Proposed dates for Acklins

The ideal time frame for me is the beginning of March this year. I have a surprisingly busy late winter schedule mounting already for some reason go figure.

I've done some fairly extensive tide checking and we can either have big movement at off times or small tides at ideal times of day, no workable dates with both.

I vote for big tides and work with the times of day based on the tailing mania witnessed last time, in other words no need for high sun to see them when they are pushing hard just dont step on them.

We have to gather on Friday in Nassau and we will take the same flight to Acklins Sat AM, departing together the following SAT.

I propose something in the order of March 1-8 or Feb 25t - March 4th... any takers?

(twice the tides we had last time)

Large file - not for dial up users. DVD is much higher quality; this trailer is reduced for web.

Got the alert from Felton that those weeks are already taken! All of March is booked.

We'll have to pick some other dates...

The only weeks I can't do are MLK and pres. weekends. Everything else works for me. Did Felton say that those dates are taken by DIY guys or non fishermen?

Glad to have you Pete, just follow the thread and things should start getting very serious shortly.

Dave, Felton did not say.

How about we start by having people post their preferred dates and see if we can get enough responses to have multiple runs down there. Then we can pull dates together if needed to get the groups set up...

Do you guys have a price estimate (not including flight) worked out? I have two guys and myself here on the west coast looking for a place to fish. We were thinking May but this may be the ticket. I am the only one in our group who has experience with flats fishing.

I have just learned there is some space available for 4 anglers (one unit of two) in March, depending on the week.

Maybe the best way to do this is to pitch some dates for each month - Jan, Feb, March, April. If you can make the dates and there are enough anglers, then we book it and go.

The 2005 alumni, myself and Felton, our host can provide you with everything you need to have a ridiculous bonefishing adventure.

I wish, oh how I wish I could come along, but with the wife due with our first kid in a few days, money for fishing trips next year is going to be limited to a short weekend trip somewhere within driving distance in the Northeast. I'll be posting about that trip within a couple of months to see if anybody else is interested...
