World record 60+ pound Permit caught & Released
“An Anglers dream”
Some days you wake up and know, today is going to be good day. I don’t know why that is, maybe the planets are in alignment, even your dog is unexplainably happy. February 24th was such a day. Bob and I were on the last day of a six day fishing adventure in the Acklins. We were plagued with two and a half days of un-fishable weather due to a cold front that buried the North East in snow and sub-zero temperatures. The Acklins Islands in the Bahamas 250 miles South of Nassau was also feeling the effects. On our last day we both felt energized and prepared for anything as out trip was quickly coming to an end. It wasn’t long before we were both into Bonefish. Huge Cuda’s were also prowling the Flats. After Bob donated some tackle to these toothy torpedoes and managed to land a few beauties, it was nearly 2PM, Bob and I were experincing that sinking feeling as the end of our trip closing in. Our guide Garon decided to try one more spot. That’s were this story begins…
Go to Angler Adventures and you can read all about it in Bob’s words.
We have just returned from the first part of our Bahamas Angling Vacations 2017. Fishing the Acklin Islands in the Southern most part of the Bahama chain. Sharing the lodge with two “newbie’s” as they refered to themselves. These folks had never Bonefished before and were totally new to saltwater fly fishing. After some hands on instruction upon their arrival. Tom and Bonny had an unbelievable first day releasing seven Bone’s. We also encountered aggressive Cuda’s landing a few (check out pictures on photos of the month.) My fishing partner had shots a Permit in the 25 pound range, we both had shots at Tarpon ranging from 40-150 pounds. I know angler’s who would travel to the other side of the world for fishing opportunities like these, yet we have it a short plane ride from the US. The weather was perfect fish were cooperative.
