In The Bahamas

Just back from an amazing trip to Mangrove Cay Club.  Best bonefishing trip I have been on!  Big fish and lots of them, great drinks and food, and very nice accommodations!  My toughest decision of the week was to pack Kalik or Sands beers everyday in my lunch cooler.

The flats are endless in the middle bite of Andros.  It is tough to imagine and flat so big that we actually had one guide pole the same flat all day, and they were into fish the whole time.

My favorite moment of the trip was when I was dropped off on a long wadeable flat by the lodge.  I saw a school of 10 massive bonefish rooting their way right to me.  I placed a perfect 20 ft cast when they were 45 feet away.  I was quickly in the dilemma of recasting or hoping they headed in my direction.  Luckily they headed right for me, and followed my fly to within 10 feet of me before one of the big guys decided to eat.  An 8-9 lb bonefish was on, and finally landed 10 minutes later.

Or was it when I caught 4 barracuda on poppers in a 45 minute time period, or maybe when the big lemon sharks would come up and eat my popper, or maybe just sitting on the deck after great day of fishing enjoying my 4th rum and coke in the last hour, or….

Anyway tough to be back in the office, but I am already planning my next trip.  Anyone want to join me next March?

I would! Just don’t try to slip to many Margaritas! :)

Great article and beautiful photos. I fly fish in Alaska during the summer months but Mangrove Cay Club appears to be a gorgeous fly fishing destination.
Thanks so much for sharing.
