Judith O'Keefe: Flats Fishing in the Joulter Cays

Judith O’Keefe has fished many places; saltwater, freshwater, rivers, streams, lakes, oceans, you name it, she’s done it. But for a longtime fisher(woman) like herself, a trip to the Bahamas for some bonefishing made her feel like a child on a grade-school field trip again.

When you imagine your first Bahamas bonefish trip you probably envision a well appointed lodge on Andros Island or perhaps Grand Bahama, with knowledgeable, patient guides, and schools of bonefish that provide just enough of a challenge. Not a chance.  It’s more like an hour boat ride and you’re dropped off on a remote cay with a Scott STS, 7-weight rod, a decent assortment of flies, a tent, and a cooler with ice, beer, and a little food. Hopefully, the ice and I would last eight days. Yep, that would be my introduction to the world of bonefishing, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.....Read the rest of Judith's post HERE on Filson Life.

Judith is hosting a trip on April 20-25, to Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. This is a prime time bonefishing trip, to a top lodge, at an affordable price. This trip is geared towards, but not limited to, first timers or those that have had limited flats fishing experience.  For more information, contact Fish Head Expeditions at Jerry@fishheadexpeditions.com or 503-539-1451.
