My next trip is NOT going to sneak up on me. I started tying for it last night for East End Lodge in Grand Bahama.
I’m tying some meat flies. #2’s. Some with lead eyes, some with bead chain, all with more material that two #6’s use.
The fish of Grand Bahama, to my memory and from my limited experience, are just bigger than most places. The may average around 4 pounds and I’ve seen the photographic evidence of fish will into the 10+ pound range. Hawaii, the West Side of Andros and Grand Bahama seem, to me, to be the best places to look for your 10 pounder.
This trip is going to be an interesting one. I may finally get to meet BTT’s Justin Lewis and I’ll be accompanied on this trip by Elliott Adler, who produces The Drake Cast (the Drake’s podcast, which I highly recommend). Elliott has never caught a bonefish before and he’s going to be in the waters of my first bonefish.
Should be interesting.

Dream Trip! I dig the Drakecast with Elliot! Hope you catch the BIG ONE!
Some of the biggest bones I’ve seen have been on the East End of Grand Bahama. It has potential. We shall see!
