Abaco Bonefish Trip 2016

An excellent trip last week to Abaco to bonefish and look for a few Permit with a great group of guys.

Two days at Sandy Point followed by three at Moors Island and then back to Sandy point for two days. The first couple of days at Sandy Point were a little cloudy with some rain around but the fishing was solid and everyone landed some nice bones. 

This year for the first time we would be staying out on Moors Island for three days. We have fished the area many times in the past but only on a day to day basis. We packed enough for breakfast and lunch for the days and had Trina cook for us at dinner. Lobster, snapper, chonch, and homemade pineapple pie were on the menu. Nothing short of amazing as far as that goes. The accommodations we simple but clean and ideal for what we were wanting to do.

Fishing at Moors was nothing short of amazing, as Ricardo, Kendall, and Perry put us in the right spot all day. With plenty of sun, warm temperatures, and winds ranging from 5-15mph conditions could not have been more ideal. Conditions produced two personal best fish for anglers. The fish gods were kind and I managed my first double digit bonefish. What my guide Ricardo called a lifetime fish. I would have to agree 100% with that statement. Plenty of Permit around as well resulted in a couple of eats but no fish in the hand.

Back at Sandy Point we closed out with a couple of excellent days of tailing fish. The last day shortly after lunch the bottom fell out, temperature dropped and the rain started to fall. One of the best weeks I have spent in Abaco this time of year.
