Awesome 3rd annual trip to Casuarina Point in Abaco. Mostly a DIY trip, we spend most of our time usually fishing Cherokee Sound. This year we did get some nice weather and took a trip to Moors Island with Ricardo, Kendall, and Perry. It was a great day out the and resulted in another monster bone caught on an Avalon Crab. The Gheenoe got smashed on the rocks during a storm and was beyond duct tape repair. We piled in the Mitzi and made the best out of shuttling from flat to flat in Cherokee. A great trip with some great folks. Many thanks to Tom and Kathy Daly for letting us enjoy their beautiful home in Casuarina Point.
Seems like we are getting to the end of winter. March is a few days away and we should start to enjoy some warmer temps. Came home this week from a trip to Abaco to some great weather. Nice and warm with light winds. Redfish are still schooled up well and made for a great time trowing flies, plastics, and a little live bait over the past couple of days. This is the pattern we should enjoy over the next few months until that water really starts to warm back up. Here is a nice pic of Fosco Fishing Company guide Jay Waide with a great fish on a simple black clouser.
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.
Excited to announce the old HB Guide entered into major surgery at Glasser Boat Works this past week. The old gal is getting new nonskid, wet sand, new cushions, powder coated hardware, and a reconfigured console. She will be like new here in a couple more weeks. Sorry everyone had to sit on those flat, hard cushions the last few months. She'll be nice, cushy, and brand new next time you are on board.
Pleased to announce the introduction of a new website this year. Its been a while since I have taken the time to update this side of things. It's nice to have something new to share photos, videos, and some fishing reports. I have to thank my amazing wife for her hard work and helping me get this up and going. Enjoy.
Finally some real winter weather. The temps have been more like normal and the fish have really been happy about it. The water is nice and clear and the shallow water sight fishing is at its best and will be over the next few months. Fly, plugs, and soft plastics have all been working well.
The fishing has been really hot lately for being such a cold month of the year. That said, the temperatures have been dropping lately and the redfish are schooling nicely. We have been attacking it on the low tide and earlier in the month, we were getting some tailers on the high tide, believe it or not.
