Bonus species on bonefish trip

Rick and Joan Mcreery of Vida have things figured out. They spend summer and fall on the Mckenzie River near Vida and winter in the small fishing village of Sandy Point in the Bahamas. Over the years the Mcreery’s have become “locals” in the Bahamas. Local knowledge is invaluable, and we were was fortunate enough to spend a couple of hours with Rick this last week, (while Joan watched the kids, thanks Joan) chasing some tarpon. We hooked two and cast to a bunch more. Baby Tarpon are a blast and when hooked they immediately leave the water trying to shed your fly out of their rock hard mouth. The Bahamas do not posses the draw for Tarpon like Mexico or the Florida Keys but the tarpon are present and can make your day. -CD
