  • Bahamas boys trip

    Here’s a bit of a photo dump from last week fishing out of Spanish Wells. Great weather but the fishing was really really tough. A few wahoo but all really small. A couple of blues and we lucked into a school of big Mahi whilst deep dropping which really really made the trip

    freezing crossing with the low windscreen on the 40


    A new favourite


    Can’t ask for a better forecast. Unfortunately the fishing was dead all morning despite acres and acres of skippies and flying fish


    Coffee Oclock


    Got this guy on the High speed wire rod. Don’t want to experience that again!


    Loads of queens


    Nothing like screaming 80ws @ 14 knots




    Critters from the deep


    Our 47 at our dock behind a crew members property. This boat is such an absolute beast to fish in the rough.


    Its fun not knowing what is in store


    Ali was loving the deep dropping! He’s a standup guy and also my “ guys” of the 40ft Onslow I delivered to San Diego a few years back. We are now bringing that back across and I will get to fish it in South Florida and the Bahamas

    Deliciousness


    this one was worth pulling over for


    Jimmy Buffets robo?


    Caramel macchiato anyone

    Hard fishing but WAY better than my days at work.

    What speed do you pull those HS lures at? I have a couple of 2 speed Intl 50's on bent butt rods and a few HS lures that I haven't had any success with. I think I may be running a little fast with them. We usually stay around 20mph. The lures stay in the water but nothing even looks at them.

      If it’s really rough going down sea I may hit 18knots but I like to keep it around 12 to 14knots.

        We were going to fish it but my buddy and I went opposite ways and I went to James Point and he hit HITW. He came back with no Pelagic’s and some small deep drop critters. I got a bin full of good sized Mahi and big snapper.

            I didn’t go up there but will see if my buddy took any. He said there was still a “sheen” on the water

            One of the guys just sent me this pic from the trip.

            Driving boats is fun but I still get kicks from leading Marlin

              Mike, did you pay attention to the fuel prices over there? I didn't go last year because diesel was $8 per gallon. Rethinking it again but the fuel prices will dictate that.

                I was paying 6.20 for gas which is cheaper than rec 90 in Miami. Diesel is $5.60/gal in Nassau.
