Son of a Preacher, Mon...

Like his father, Newton, Garron Williamson went through the steps to become a man of the cloth. In addition to preaching every Sunday at Joshua Kingdom Ministries on Acklins, Garron wears the hat of a school bus driver and also fills the role of manager and head guide at Grey’s Point Bonefish Inn.

Anglers can enjoy catching small and average-size bonefish all day long while fishing Acklins, but make no mistake, big boys do in fact live here and have receIved little pressure over the years. Photo by John Frazier
