Charlotte Chilcott will be heading to Crooked and Acklins Islands in The Bahamas in search of big bonefish and Caribbean triggerfish, as well as many of the other species on hand in May 2017.
The Bahamas has for a long time established itself as a leading bonefish destination, every cay, cove and channel seems to hold good numbers of bonefish ranging from large shoals of smaller fish to big single fish. There is, however, little focus placed upon the other species that live in these waters and swim side by side with the bonefish. When the new lodge on Crooked Island came online we were hugely excited, whilst it offered shots at bonefish it also highlighted the chances of catching other species too. This includes the Caribbean favourites of permit, tarpon and barracuda but also triggerfish, shark and jacks; all of which can be targeted on the fly. The Spring and early summer months offer some of the best fishing in the Caribbean and at Crooked & Acklins islands.
The cost is US$3,290. International and internal flights are not included. Accommodation on a shared room basis with shared boat/guide.
