I wanted to drop a quick note to the Trouts Contingent and deliver this preliminary fishing report from the Andros South Lodge.  We left for the Bahamas on Friday evening, flying from Denver to Charlotte on a red eye.  From there, we flew south to Nassau and connected with a puddle jumper over to Congo Town.  After arriving at the Andros South Lodge, our team of seven clients were ready to get after it.

With our hosted trip to the Andros South Lodge in the Bahamas just a few short days away, most of our planning and preparation is behind us.   We’re now in “pack it up” mode.  Between rods, reels, lines, leaders, tippets, and flies – organization and planning can go a long way.  When we are on South Andros Island, our primary target will be bonefish – BIG bonefish.  My secondary target will be barracuda.  Other species where we will...
