Bahamas Regs: Whatever Happens Now, Damage Has Been Done

Andros IslandInformation continues to dribble out of the Bahamas regarding these proposed flats-fishing regulations. We’ve seen Version 2 of the plan, but it’s hard to know what the outcome will be. For all the robust rhetoric, apparently it all comes down to what the cabinet decide. Or something. I simply don’t know enough about the workings of the Bahamian government to predict how that will go, but I can tell you one thing for certain: wherever we go from here, something has changed for good. Not for everyone perhaps, but it has for me.

Long Island Bonefishing Lodge – Deadman’s Cay, Long Island, Bahamas

A genuinely unique proposition. Long Island Bonefishing Lodge specialises in what it calls “assisted DIY” bonefishing. That essentially means you get all the comforts of a regular lodge (three meals a day, appetizers on return from fishing etc) but guides drop fishermen off at the flats, leave them to it and pick them up at a designated point later on. Rates are consequently more affordable than those of many other lodges in the Bahamas.
