Androsian fog

There's a peasoup fog over large parts of east Andros mangroves this morning. It's like no other fog I've ever seen, like a thin blanket that lifts and undulates over the ground, offering peeks of flats as it lifts just 10-15 feet off the ground periodically, and then settles back down. It also can't be more than 50' thick.
I have never seen or even heard of this phenomenon. It is absolutely beautiful.

Wall, for a variety of reasons, no pictures.

On the other hand, we got another postcard morning down here,. instead of the advertised cold front.

It's been FRIGID down here ever since the front blew through Mon. night. Never thought I'd use the heater in my quarters, but it's been on every night.

If I had'em, I'd post them. Somehow I got out of photography mode. I get to enjoy the moment a bit more this way.

Anyway, I'm getting a first-hand look at how completely a cold front can shut down bonefishing on Andros. It's been sweater weather at night, really too cold to wet-wade mornings and late afternoons, and I don't think I've seen winds less than 15 kts, all from NW-NE for the past week. Water's 72-74, and that's very cold for down here.
I've been visiting lodges most evenings, both to sample their dinners and to meet sports, and by and large, folks who came to bonefish are miserable. They're getting driven around from one lee to another, and really not seeing much of anything, nev'mind catching bones. Lodges refuse to cancel IF costs were paid up front. For that matter, I have yet to see a Bahamian guide cancel a trip befoe he's been paid for the day.
I kinda feel sorry for lodge visitors, and it's a safe bet that most of those here now won't be back. Lodges could really do a lot more to keep 'em happy. Andros has a lot more than bonefishing to offer, but it's just not on lodges' agenda.

We all hear how cold fronts don't happen in March. All it takes is one look at Intellicast this week to dispel that myth.

What a bummer...

Josko

Sorry to hear that the weather mucked things up for you so badly. Sounds like the multi-day kayak trip would have been a no-go anyway huh? Hopefully things pick up for you soon. Stop by Hank's Place and say hello to Art or Al for me. They own a fly shop up in Divide, MT (by the Big Hole) and I stayed with Art last year when I was there. Those lucky bastards generally go and stay there for six weeks at a time. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing I think, but it would still be sweet. Tell them hi if you see them, and good luck brother.

Blue hole'diving's been good + I'm working my little fanny off. I was at Hank's 2 nights ago; there's nobody in his rooms.
