Always Date Ugly Chicks
The primary purpose of my 3 days in the Bahamas was to learn from Neil (Antares 4436) and Scot the ins and outs of deep-sea fishing. It was excellent. The trip exceeded expectations. We had a blast, and caught a ton of fish.
We started each day with a 4-5 mile walk before jumping on the boat and heading out to grab fish. They primary types of fishing we did included:
- Trolling for grouper and other reef fish
- Deep dropping (over 500ft) for snapper
- Lobster traps (did not catch as out of season)

Below is a brief video from our trip. As you will see, the hardest part was our deep drop fishing. It is very challenging to reel up 500+ feet of line quickly (so the sharks don’t get your fish) AND drink a beer! Whew!! Maybe I can just do deep drop fishing instead of paddle boarding for exercise!
