Nassau, Grand Bahama Island
|For a break from the constant battles with the albacores an
opportunity arose to give the Caribbean a shot. Carolyn and a good
friend, Dee Siegel, had the opportunity to attend a national convention
of their college sorority, AE Phi, at Nassau on Grand Bahama Island.
With the opportunity to fish those waters I couldn't resist accompanying
the girls along with Dee's husband, Al (not known for his ability to
tolerate the high seas). We did some snorkeling, picking up conch
shells, and I went out for a 1/2 day of fishing. Result was one sailfish
and one white marlin. No bonanza, but an opportunity to get on the
scoreboard for the
LA Billfish's Grand Slam award (Striped, Blue, White
and Black Marlins, Sailfish, and a bonus, Swordfish).
