That would make a nice river drift boat!

Never a dull moment in the Bahamas, even from shore. You could catch a different species on every cast.
Freshwater is just awful. There's no replacement for the salt.

Re: Inshore: Bahamas

We rent-

We looked at quite a few places for sale this past trip, but the prices were quite optimistic. We're likely to build something in the future, and that way we'll be confident in it's ability to withstand storms. Deltec has a nice kit that is very energy efficient, and very storm-resistant.

Inshore: Bahamas

Since it's a chilly February ( everywhere ) I thought I'd share a few photos from a trip to the Bahamas from December. As usual, we visited the island of Eleuthera, located in the Central Bahamas, and about 70nm east of Nassau. With the exception of one day, all of the fishing was from the shore, wh...

Re: Amber Jack

Live bait for sure, although they will hit big swimbaits as well. I've used the "Billfish" series of Eagle hooks which are strong, in a 7/0 size. Rig your bait, and either flat line it or a small sinker to get it down, and hold on. Make sure you're using at least 65# line, and get prepared...

No More Fishing Reports...

At least not any time soon. I'm moving to North Carolina, and I'll be a solid 4 hour drive to the coast. We'll have some good freshwater fishing in the area, Lake Rhodiss, Lake Hickory, and Lake Norman are all within a 30 minute drive, but I'll miss the power, variety, and complexity of saltwater fi...

Re: SGI inshore

Fished again this morning, starting before sunrise. Checked all the crab traps we saw, but saw no T-3's. Worked some shoreline with a spoon an topwater, and lost a big red, and landed an underslot red.

Tide went slack, and so did the bite...

Re: SGI inshore

Managed some beachfront trolling today, saw birds working bait schools, and got 3 nice Spanish, with the largest measuring 21". Attempted to head out to the SGI Bridge rubble, which was the closest in structure, but got run off by a thunderstorm before we could wet a line. Hoping that this TS h...

SGI inshore

Been fishing SGI this week with little success. We've caught trout, bluefish, and sailcats, but with no consistency. Despite fishing docks and structure with aqudream spoons, fresh crab chunks, and topwater, no redfish have bit us yet. We've drifted both the Sikes Cut and the West Pass with live pin...
