Default Grand Bahama Island Report - Oct 2010

Fished out of North Riding Point Lodge for three days; Oct 21-23. Accommodations were excellent as was the food. Fishing was a bit tough as we were there during a full moon high tide. First day we fished from the boat and no wading.

The fish were spooky as the high water left them vulnerable to their predators. When hooked they headed for the mangroves.

Caught several.

Next two days allowed some wading.

Average size.

We used 8wt rods and size 4 flies. Brown/tan with sili-legs worked the best.
As you can see from the last picture the bottom was mottled which made spotting fish a bit difficult for my wife and when the clouds came over I could not spot the fish either. So, although we caught fish our next trip will be to a spot with what I consider to be the classic sand flats.
