I have seen some of those regs. The good news is that there's lots of wading to be done right there. Jerry's well connected and I'm sure can get some great rates with his cousin that guides with small hope bay as well. I know we're also all supposed to play by the book, but I think you'd be hard pressed to run into any fisheries enforcement in Fresh Creek. This is the kind of place where you can be hard pressed to run into ANYONE during the course of your fishing... let alone the law. I've never come into contact with anyone but police and immigration.. and they were not interested in talking about fishing. Just sayin'.New Bahamas regulations this year prohibit 2 or more people from going out in a boat together unless one is a licensed guide. Also newly required this year are fishing licenses for all anglers, but the law is so new there are hardly any places to buy them. Makes a budget-minded DIY trip with buddies rather more difficult than it used to be.
