I was in Bimini about 15 year back during on of the major tournaments that were held in the summer there. I beleive that it was The Bimini Big Game Open, at that time. One windy day while getting ready to board a skiff for a day of flats fishing, one of the capt's asked if i would save him a few Boneheads of about 5 lbs. I said "sure, but why?" He said , I'll show you later...
That evening, I show up with Bonefishs in hand, and he invites us aboard his 50' Buddy Davis for drinks and snacks. Keep in mind that these were boats that I had only seen in magazines at that tender yourn age. He then showed me how to rig "a Bonehead". He did not win the tournament, but to be in the company of the worlds finest big game boats, capts, and fishermen was an experience that I will remember forever.
Boat names such as :
Queen Annes Concrete Machine
and many, many others...What a blast!
