Bimini; a small pair of islands located about 47 miles east of Government Cut,
Miami Beach, Florida. That makes them about 48 miles from my dock. I have fished
as a profession for over 35 years and have never seen fishing better than Bimini.
Years ago we went there for marlin and giant tuna. These fish can still be
found there in fair numbers, but you can find better spots for that.
What the waters around Bimini really excel in are light tackle lure casting
for a variety of challenging game fish. It is fishing at it's best. Snapper, grouper,
mackerel, cobia, assorted jacks, the list goes on all day. You fish for these
fish in water so clear that you can tell if your dime is heads or tails laying
on the bottom, 20 feet below. They come up and smash surface plugs and flies.
They charge in from the side and devour your crank bait or streamer. Or they rocket
into the air from under your jerk bait. It is beyond your dreams.
Bimini has numerous hotels and restaurants staffed by the pleasant residents
of these two small islands, and every stay is a treat. We invite you to join us
for a visit to these famous "Islands in the Stream", Papa Hemingways
old hang out.
Let's try the Bahamas this summer, Bouncer.
