Fishing for fun (and bonefish) at Small Hope Bay Lodge

A couple of weeks ago, Skeebo (Harrington Frazier) - one of Small Hope Bay's fabulous resident fishing guides and dive instructors - took a guest on a two-day bonefishing extravaganza. They had a great time exploring some waters off the beaten path.
Our guest, John Cox, is from South Carolina, and he's been to Andros to fish with Skeebo before. But he'd never gone fishing in the North Bight – only the South Bight, so this visit, Skeebo took him to some new areas.
They had an early start Saturday morning. "We were in the water by 7:30 and we didn't get to the flats - where we wanted to fish – until 9," Skeebo said.
Skeebo and John headed towards the little Loggerhead area because there are two different tides there and they wanted to catch the right tide. "It's low rising on the west coast and falling on the east coast," Skeebo explained.
They saw a fair amount of fish, but according to Skeebo, the fish were very finicky. "The first fish we saw was a double digit fish. John made a 60-foot cast at 10 o'clock and the fish aggressively charged to fly. But John didn't make a long strip and the fish spooked off."

They cast quite a few fish that day. John hooked a few fish and landed one or two. "Most of them ranged between four to eight pounds, which is a good size," Skeebo said.
They had a picnic lunch, and were happy to be out on the water. John's also a fishing guide – he guides for red fish. "He has a very positive attitude towards fishing," said Skeebo. "He likes to explore and so do I. It was a lot of fun - we had a good time."
This was the first time John stayed at Small Hope Bay, and we hope he'll come back to stay with us again.
