The Proof...........Not Just a Fish StoryTerry
03/03/2008, Rum Cay
Whenever we do a deep water ocean crossing I like to drag all my fishing gear. On our trip from Long Island to Rum Cay I lost all my good lures. They all got cut off.....This is not uncommon if you dont use steel leader and you get hit with Wahoo. Well I lost all my "bait" so I pulled out one of my Tuna rigs. These rigs are made for dragging Ballyhoo(a small fish as bait) and a colorfull skirt slides over the head of the Ballyhoo. Problem.....I had no Ballyhoo but these were all I had to throw over, so I threw only one line over thinking it was a waste of time. The first thing I caught was a Marlin. These are catch and release Trophy fish that people spend big money to "try" and catch but most never do. The second fish I caught was this Dolphin (not that kind of Dolphin). We fed 8 people with 1/4 of this fish that night!

03/03/2008, Georgetown to Long Island
We left Georgetown the morning of Feb 19 and fell in with and unusual number of boats heading to the same place. All totaled there were over 30 boats. Most Cruisers dont go any further than Georgetown. They like the protection of the Exuma Island chain and the shallow water cruising of the Bahama Banks. The Islands further south and East are more remote, offer less protection and you have open ocean crossings of deep water to get there.

This Hot Dog buzzed all the anchored boats then landed right in the anchorage. He then taxied between Us and the shore and proceeded to back the plane up to the beach in with all those dingies.

This is typical Bar/Resturant that we see here in the Bahamas. This on Volleyball Beach and is what we see looking at the beach from our boat.
We have a nondenominational service each week held in our Casuarina Tree Sanctuary.
