But what really struck me from an angler's perspective was the location. We literally saw no other boats during our entire stay. You're fishing water that just isn't accessible to many other places - and there is no traveling to the boat ramp. Your gear is loaded into skiffs right behind your cottage. Then, there's the blue-water scene.
We'd planned to head offshore, but a nasty east wind during our entire stay prevented this. The deep water holds real promise, though - the bottom falls off precipitously only a mile from the South Bight's pass, and tuna, mahi and many others are taken well within sight of land. No one really fishes these waters, either, but it's easily accomplished in reasonable conditions aboard Tiamo's 28-foot World Cat.
And, don't forget, there's always the chance of bumping into species other than bonefish on the flats. Check out this cool YouTube video shot earlier this year with one of the resort's top guides from the island's west side:
All in all, this trip produced some of the better fishing I've had in quite some time. Tune in later this month for an exciting video from the region.
Till then, enjoy some PHOTOS, and tight loops,
