|Because of problems at home, my fishing partner won't be able to make our annual trip to the Bight, so I'm looking for another accomplice. Here's the deal for one of the world's best bone fishing spots:|
Fly into Nassau on 12/11, then catch quick flight (via LeAir) to Fresh Creek (arriving between 3-4pm,) Andros
$50 cab ride to Mt. Pleasant Fishing Lodge in Cargill Creek. Good home cooked breakfast and dinner. Lunch sandwiches/cookies/etc for the boat. Nice rooms with A/C. Cost about $1700 each plus staff tips.
From 12/12 through 12/17 (6 days) fish the North Bight 8 hours each day. It is a 5-8 minute ride from lodge to dock where our guide, Ricardo Mackey will meet us. About a 15 minute run to the Bight. Can expect to see and cast to many, many bones in beautiful shallow water. Can expect to see and catch quite a few bones in the 5-9 pound range. Should be sightings and casting to some bones in the 10+ pound range.
Guide is $1200 each, plus a tip.
On 12/18 depart Fresh Creek on LeAir at around 7:15am for Nassau. Can be back at Ft. Lauderdale by 11:30am.
This will be my 4th time back to the Bight with Ricardo. To put it most succinctly: After many years of bone fishing, I have chosen the Bight to be my one and only bone fish destination...easiest to get to, most fish seen, largest fish seen, largest fish caught (9#), largest fish seen approximately 12-14#.
