    I rented a small 2 bdr house in Arthurs Town on Cat Island, Bahamas Feb 13-Mar 1. My fishing buddy had something come up and can't come. So, I will be there by myself. I am a DIY fisherman and main reason for trip is bonefishing. I know this is a long shot but if someone is interested, room is available. I've never been there but have fished a number of times in Mexico and Central America.

    Didn't the Bahamas just pass a bunch of restrictions on DIY fishing?

    Doesn't sound good. I had thought of going to Bahamas a year ago but because of this issue I changed my mind. I thought this was a dead issue but guess I was wrong. I,ve already paid airfare and housing and so am locked in. Cat Island is less visited than many of the islands and so maybe I'll be alright. I'll let the readers know how it went.

    What a mess
    I had a great time trolling for Barry's with a neighbor of the place we rented.
    That would suck if that is illegal

    I'm all in on buying a liscence
    I'd buy a liscence in Hawaii if I could too

    Went to Cat for 2 weeks last year. Excellent place for DIY bonefishing. Get in touch if you want info.

    Wish I was going back to the Bahamas but not likely anytime soon. OTOH, I'm up for sharing spots on our local crick if you'd like some company closer to home.

    Looking forward to a Bahamas report. Good luck!
