Once again the schools of bull redfish arrived on schedule this winter and offered our clients exciting opportunities to catch and release trophy fish on flies and light tackle. Also, for the first time in at least three years, false albacore streaked along the shoreline in January and provided some very intense sight fishing. The winter water was crystal clear and Bahamas turquoise. In March sheepshead and pompano arrived adding to the excitement. Below are examples of this past winter's action.

Hutch and the first false albacore taken on fly in 2007. We were anchored in two feet of gin-clear water when this fish took the fly, fly line and about a hundred yards of backing before Hutch landed and released it unharmed.
