Eleuthera 2017 - Fishing from shore

Even this year (here the report of the last year trip) we've arranged a fishing vacation in Eleuthera thanks to Andrea's facilities (home & car, see here).

We were in 4 this year and as usual we practiced shore fishing and only with lures.

We arrived in Nassau with a British Airways flight form London and after a night in Nassau we flew to Rock Sound (South Eleuthera). And few minutes after landing we were at the Andrea's home, very close to the airport.

Once arrived at home just the time to open suitcases and take the rods and we went fishing.

The footage of the Alessandro's barracuda

Beach Bonanza (please note the shark attack at min 5:00 :grin)

We also experienced several top water attacks (personally I tried so much top water fishing, looking for big fish). Here a clip with some missed attacks by barracudas, sharks (one kept my preferred skipping lure :banghead) and others

And this is the best fish of the whole vacation, a very nice African Pompano caught with a skipping lures

A very hard fight and harder landing :grin.
We weren't able to land fish through the boga-grip so at the end Gabriele has jumped in the water bringing the fish by the tail and at the end Fabian had get out the fish. Considering how many sharks were swimming in the area keeping a live fish in the water it has been an uncommon bravery by Gabriele.
A great teamwork :applause


This is my clip, almost open, after the fight (the background is absolutely casual :cool: :grin)

So, once again a great vacation in amazing places and with a lot of fish.
Hope we can arrange again in 2018, maybe in April/May in order to have the opportunity to meet more pelagic fish.

Ciao by (from left to right) Fabian, me, Alessandro and Gabriele !

    That's a sand eel and it's actually a member of the tile fish family. Very good to eat!
