but unfortunately the weather isn't - cold front, windy, cloudy, rainy, etc etc. View from our back porch
Put in a lot of foot and vehicle miles looking for fish. Manage to catch a few baby Tarpon and a few Bones but nothing pic worthy along with assorted Snaperjacks, and several sharks.
These Horse eyes were fun.
They were in a tiny blue hole and would smash a Creasefly in mass each time it went over the blue hole, until the sharks showed up, BIG ones. Hooked one of the sharks on a Redfish fly on my 10 weight but was badly outclassed. Put enough pressure on it to get a good jump before it was gone, cool!
We moved on after that spot and wandered the flat for a couple hours before heading back. Got back to the Shark/Jack hole and the tide had risen enough that the sharks were no longer in the hole but were swimming around in the channel that we had to cross and it looked like we might even have to swim the channel to get across. WE didn't have to swim but did have to wade deeper than we wanted to.... Never got caught by a rising tide before, learned a lesson.
Although the fishing could have been better, the eating was the best I've had on the islands. Some fine chefs with fresh seafood but the best was Friday Feast with a whole roast pig, barbeque goat and lots of other stuff. We ate a bunch of pig!
Did quite a bit of sight seeing while driving around looking for fish. Lots of churches, many abandoned.
We met a group of men hand building a regatta boat. The family has been building them for generations. This gentleman learned the craft from his grandfather and had some great stories to tell.
A few other assorted sights:
Off to island 2! and maybe a few more fish???
