South Andros Island, Bahamas: Sea Hunter Trip Report 2013

We just returned from another superb trip aboard the Sea Hunter liveaboard to South Andros in the Bahamas! 
Bonefishing, snorkeling, reef fishing, superb food, good company and a great crew... it doesn't get any better than this!! 
I'll post more photos in the next few days.

As we ran out of mainland and entered the maze of cays that surround the southern tip of South Andros Island, it was good to once again, see the Sea Hunter steady at anchor in Jackfish Channel. The Sweet Jessie, our transportation from Kemps Bay to the Sea Hunter, sidled up to the port side of the mothership and in that moment, the Sea Hunter became our home for the next week. Cabins were divided up, bags were unpacked and stored, and fishing gear was rigged. Before long, we were calf deep on the the fabled flats that surround our mooring.

Our routine for the next six days was a wading bonefisherman’s dream come true. Up shortly after 6:00 am and grab a cup of coffee in the galley on the way outside to watch the sunrise from the aft deck.  Breakfast at 7:00, then slap on some sunscreen, pull up your buff and step into the skiffs between 7:30 and 8:00. We usually would bonefish until late afternoon (or the tide got too high), then motored back to the Sea Hunter for showers, cocktails, a sumptuous dinner all followed by a lazy night relaxing. We only broke our late afternoon routine when we chose to go snorkeling or reef fishing or our evening routine when some of the braver souls got involved in a raucous game of dominoes with the guides after dinner.
