Acklins - let's do it!

I'm looking for a group of hardcores to venture to Acklins this winter! Felton has built a new lodge and is offering an exclusive introductory discount to Forum members. All meals and shuttles to flats in the pristine Salinas Pt area are included. I also enjoy exploring the island to revisit some of the old haunts from previous adventures.

Currently looking at the second week in March. Who's in?

RSVP here and I'll send you the info.

Tides

Datum Bay lies off the southern tip of Acklins. Here is the tide chart for the stay period in that area.

Juro, I am interested to see what you have going. Its been awhile since I have fished Acklins and that was in the north so I would love to explore the southern part of the island. I am heading to the bahamas sometime this year but have not settled on a destination and finances are more of an issue. I don't want to bump a regular though.
Thanks.

Please do share details. If your group of regulars does not fill out the team I would like the opportunity to join in. Time is getting short however, for getting into decent airfares to Nassau. Looking forward to the opportunity.
Tom

And filling up fast! Four seats left nonstop to Nassau this AM from Boston. After much research this looks to be one of Juro's best DIY bets. Great lodging. Food! A bed of your own! A shuttle to some of the best DIY fishing on the planet. The southern end bones don't know what a fly is!
I'd be very surprised to see another angler outside of the group unless they want to walk many miles. No roads to access flats nearby to my knowledge so the shuttle will be a big plus to those that can't keep up with Juro's fitness! LOL! If I don't make this one, I'm going to be kicking myself to China and back! Time is running out.

Best of luck to all headed to Felton's Salinas. Got a chance to see the lodge on my last trip in Nov.
Great location and super accomodations. Save some fish for me I'll be down there later in the month. Then going to Long Island for a week DIY ( the grass is always greener).

Have fun........CC Charlie

Forum Member discount of 30%. Deposit will be required shortly.

www.vrbo.com/206778
www.salinapointinnbonefishlodge.com
(new webpage under construction)

*** need verbal commitments asap ***

Proposed Itinerary:

Rendezvous in Nassau Tues night. I will check with our usual hotel (Orange Hill) today.

Morning flight to Acklins. We will have transportation waiting. I suspect we will be fishing by early afternoon (first year I caught my first bone by 1:30p).

Wed 10-17th, return home on the morning flight - book an afternoon flight out of Nassau.

5 units, two beds each. All meals provided, boat transportation to area flats. I will inquire about the vehicle rental to other locations on the island we have come to know and love.

More later...
