College spring break done right in a video from Jack Williams that follows anglers on a trip to the Bahamas.

From the video maker:

“Instead of partying in Cancun or Nassau like the usual spring breakers, we took our week off from classes at Hobart College in cold Upstate New York and headed to the small island of Exuma in search of some bonefish. Although being thrown a ridiculous amount of curveballs throughout the trip, we managed to catch some fish and got a real taste of the Bahamian lifestyle. Thank you to everyone who made the trip a possibility.”

More on this destination:

The Bahamas are a series of islands and cays located just off the southeast coast of Florida and north of Cuba. For U.S. anglers, the Bahamas are an easily accessible saltwater fly fishing destination with some of the best bonefishing in the world.

While anglers have access to barracuda, tarpon, permit, and deep water species, the bonefish are the greatest draw for most anglers. Found in good numbers and also double-digit weights, these bonefish can be pursued year-round, and there are even opportunities for do-it-yourself anglers who want to walk the flats alone.

Of the specific spots within the Bahamas, Grand Bahama, Andros Island, Joulters, Abaco, Long Island, Crooked Island, and Deep Water Cay are among the most targeted spots, and there are plenty of other locations for anglers to access as well.
