Deep Water Cay Photo Essay: The Big Bonefish

December 9th, 2015

Written by: Benjamin Gossett—Fishing Manager, Orvis Houston, Visiting Deep Water Cay.

Right off the bat, the group was into big schools of bonefish on the Bahamian flats. Photos by Benjamin Gossett, except where noted

 

I recently had the opportunity to travel to The Bahamas to fish at Deep Water Cay. When I arrived at the Freeport Airport, I met up with Craig Foster, store manager of Orvis Raleigh; José Delgado, fishing manager of Orvis Woodlands (TX); and Trey Oliver, fishing manager of Orvis Charlotte.

After a trip to the Sands Brewery, a visit to a cigar shop for Cubans, a scenic van ride, and a short boat ride, we made it to the lodge. The moment we arrived to the lodge everything was perfect: food, accommodations, amazing staff, and, oh yeah, big bones.

The fishing was lights out! I was partnered up with Trey on day one, and after a long run, we made it to bonefish heaven. I don’t remember how many we caught–that’s the way it should be–but we had school after school of nice fish. Trey and I both landed the biggest bones of our lives.

Day two was slower, but we had a blast. I was lucky to share a boat with Christopher Pipes of Deep Water Cay and the High Lonesome Ranch, and I learned that sharks fight very hard.

Bonefish Challenge

June 27th, 2015

GET PAID TO CATCH BIG FISH AT TOP BONEFISHING SPOT DEEP WATER CAY, BAHAMAS –

ALL-EXPENSES PAID DAY ANY TIME a 10+ LB BONEFISH IS REELED-IN THIS JULY & AUGUST

 

Plus, Beat the World Record at 16 Lbs and Win an All-Expenses Paid Trip Back

Deep Water Cay Bonefishing challenge 

DEEP WATER CAY, BAHAMAS (JUNE 2015) – On the heels of the new bonefish record set at Deep Water Cay in June at 15.44 lbs, just shy of the world record, Deep Water Cay is offering all guests booked in July and August the chance to win an entire free day for any bonefish caught weighing in at 10 pounds or more.  Guests who catch a 10+ pounder each day will end up with a trip that is practically free!  Plus, if any bonefish caught surpasses the world record at 16lbs, the guest will be invited back for an all-expenses paid trip for two, including three night’s accommodations, two days of fishing and all meals.

This “play and get paid” opportunity is on top of low season rates, and will not only include a free night’s stay, but the boat, guide and tackle fees, as well as all meals, will be taken care of by Deep Water Cay each day a guest catches a 10+ lb bonefish.  For example, a couple who books the “Summer Savings” package for three nights, two days of activities and meals at $1995 per person will be awarded over $600.

“July and August may not be typical months for bonefishing,” notes general manager Buzz Cox, “but the big fish have not gone anywhere.  We see it as an untapped resource, as proven by the record-breaker caught a few weeks ago.  In fact, with limited pressure on bonefish this time of year from fewer anglers being out there on the flats, they are primed for the taking.”

The Fine Print

This offer is valid for current and future bookings for a minimum of one night from July 1through August 31, 2015, and is based on availability.  Bonefish calculations will be determined by measuring at least 28” to the fork, and it must be documented and photographed by one of Deep Water Cay’s guides.  The “free day” will be calculated based on the angler’s portion of the accommodations, meals and fishing, and does not include taxes, resort service fee, recommended guide gratuities or alcoholic beverages.  One “free day” for a 10+ lb bonefish will be counted per day up to the length of the guest’s stay.  Additional 10+ lb bonefish caught in the same day will not be credited towards another day.   The “free day” will be compensated in the form of a rebate to be credited towards the guest’s invoice.  Any guest who breaks the world record of a 16 lb bonefish will additionally be awarded a free trip—complimentary accommodations for themselves and a companion in an ocean view cottage for three nights, plus two days of fishing and all meals and beverages (excluding transportation, taxes, resort service fee, recommended guide gratuities or alcoholic beverages) for a future visit good for one year from the date of the catch.  Specific rules and regulations determining the world record may apply and will be provided upon check-in.

For more information and to book reservations, contact Deep Water Cay at (888) 420-6202 or email Reservations@DeepWaterCay.com.

TRAVELING TO DEEP WATER CAY

Deep Water Cay is easily accessible via frequent and direct commercial flights into Freeport from Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, Palm Beach and Miami with easy and simple Customs and Immigration clearance.  Upon arrival in Freeport, guests take a shuttle to the eastern end of Grand Bahama Island, where the resort’s private water taxi awaits for a five-minute cruise to Deep Water Cay.  Guests can also fly directly to Deep Water Cay’s 4,000-foot airstrip by private or charter flights and clear Bahamas Customs and Immigration on the island.
