My last post on the Bahamas! Heading out of Government Dock, we hired Flocker to show us the waters. Flocker knows these seas having spent all of his 8 decades right here. His name was given to him as a schoolboy by his father. He told his Dad that while out on the boat, he saw a huge flock of fish go by! His Dad laughed and the name stuck. To this day, he is known by the locals as Flocker, even thought Dad passed years and years ago.
View of the North End of Harbour Island. Strong currents in the inlet where several have drifted out to the Atlantic…
Flocker… what a great smile!
Flocker making some chum out of the old conch shell.
Preparing the bait.
Stringing the line.
And the fish come flocking in! One after the other! Little guys, we let them go.
And back to the Harbour for a beer…
Next time? Maybe on the Kiwi Pride with the handsome Captain Craig Doring… of Bahamas Catamaran Charters!
