Once again, Crooked Island does not disappoint! The guides, the people, the food and the fishing--they all combine to make Crooked Island one of the best bonefishing destinations in the Bahamas. Many nice bonefish were landed, and the average size of the bones seems to have increased. Guests caught big mutton snappers, barracuda, jacks and more.
Below are some of the photos from our guests, and from the trip host, Dan Pangaldi, who once again got to spend two straight weeks on Crooked. Many thanks to Clinton & Kenny Scavella, Mike Carrol, Derrick, Randy, Jeffrey and Shakey, all great guides and people. Also, we owe Willie Gibson and the gang at Gibson's #2 a huge thank you for all of the great meals! The people of Crooked Island are one of a kind!
We'll be returning again in Spring 2013, and we already have reserved two weeks--March 16-23 & 23-30, 2013!
Here's what some of our guests had to say about this year's trip:
Vince, I would like to THANK YOU for sponsoring a fantastic trip to Crooked Island in the Bahamas. Our host Dan Pangaldi did an outstanding job in making our trip organized, comfortable, and informative. The accommodations were very clean and pleasant. The dining was an excellent blend of Bahamian and and American cuisine. Willies home made bread was a treat every day. The guides were always on time, informative, and very hard working. They did every thing to make our fishing successful which included teaching and demonstrating correct techniques. Their ability to locate the correct flats to fish was excellent. I had a most enjoyable trip and can't wait for next years trip!"

"Vince I had a great time on Crooked Island! Unfortunately the last day was almost a rain out (can't control the weather). I also had my shot at a permit earlier in the week. All the Crooked Island guides are experienced and well prepared for the day's adventure. Attached are a few Pic's you can share. Take care, hope you have me penciled in for 2 weeks next year at Crooked. I also may have a friend that wants to come and I will let you know when when he finally makes up his mind."
"Hi Vince, just got back from Crooked Island and had a great time. The fishing was great and the guides put a lot of effort to put us onto fish. The wind was a challenge, but hopefully on my next trip I will be ready to deal with it. The reef fishing was a nice diversion and would like to do that again. I have attached some photos. Could you book me a spot for Crooked Island for the first week in March 2013. Thanks."
