  1. Trip Report: Turneffe Atoll, Belize - Aug/Sept. 2016

    Trip Report: Turneffe Atoll, Belize - Aug/Sept. 2016
    I recently spent a week fishing Turneffe Atoll, Belize in preparation for a hosted trip I have scheduled in April. I stayed at the Turneffe Flats lodge, which is located on the northeast (Caribbean) side of the atoll, and is situated in perfect location for easy fishing/diving access. “Flats,” as it’s nicknamed, is even stationed right along a home flat which would hold bonefish and at times permit and triggerfish during various times of the day. Most days, either early morning or when I returned to the lodge in the evening, I would see tailing fish feeding no more than 40 feet away. So, right off the bat the location seemed great.

    The World’s Best Tarpon Fishing?
    It’s March. If you’re like me, you’re locked in one of the many ‘polar vortices’ that is gripping the country. I don’t know what it is about snow. It’s white after all, but every time it falls I find myself dreaming of silver.

  5. Long Island Bonefishing Lodge Review

    Long Island Bonefishing Lodge Review
    When I was planning my latest bonefishing trip to Long Island (the one in The Bahamas), I came across the Long Island Bonefishing Lodge which offers “assisted DIY” bonefishing. Those who know me know that I’m a bit of a contrarian and this is a brand new concept in the world of fishing lodges, and probably the first change to the business model in 50 years. Naturally, I set aside a day to check it out.
