Pompano, False Albacore Jack, Hogfish caught on Fly/Spin by Doug C - 24th March
We made it home last night and I already miss Bermuda.
I wanted to thank you again for the extra effort you made to accommodate my desire to chase some
Bonefish with Mother Nature working against us, without you playing the weather right my
adventure would not have happened. It was exciting to be in a new element and a pleasure
to experience your skills and knowledge of the Bermudian fishery. I added a Palometa,
Bonita and a Hogfish to my personal catch list and was able to get a shot at a Bonefish!
Good luck and I look forward to returning to fish aboard the Jump dem Bones!

A quick note to thanks for the fantastic inshore fishing trip last week.
My son and I had an absolute blast being on the water with you. The scenery was incredible, the fishing was amazing
and your added knowledge of everyone and everything Bermuda was more than we could have asked for...great, great fun.
I only wish I had lined up a second trip! Hopefully the new record we set holds up for a while (fish on the line within 30 seconds of leaving the dock).
We’ll definitely be seeing you again....tight lines!

6lb Bonefish on Fly caught by Mike Elsden - 29th May
Thanks Ian for the two excellent trips out on Jump Dem Bones.

I came to Bermuda with a hope that I might see a Bonefish or two... maybe even have a shot at something.
What I encountered with Captain Linnell blew all my expectations.
My previous experience with Bonefishing amounted to one trip in September last year and a book I had
read on the subject, so I was a real novice as far as this species was concerned! That changed on the first day
when I hooked into a MONSTER Bonefish - 11lbs at 28", and my first ever Bone. Took me right out almost to my
last bit of backing and tied me up around some roots and a rock.Determined not to lose the fish,
Ian went diving into 15 feet of cold water to release the snag - completely above and beyond the call of duty!
Thankfully the second snag came off of its own accord and the fish, amazingly, was still on. A few more
screaming runs and we finally got the fish on board for the weigh in.
30 minutes later I was still shaking! Fantastic trip with an excellent guide! Thank YOU!

Of course, the two bones (one landed) on the second trip were a blast too. I totally want that triple crown now and
Barbara wants her first Bonefish. We will see you again soon! Thanks mate!

12lb Hogfish caught on Spin by Dave Ward - 25th March
I was looking forward to catching a hog fish and you not only delivered on that but it was a good size one. I have been fishing for trout for some time.
But casting for bone fish is much harder. You did everything you could to get one for me, but you can not force them to hit.
I will definitely look you up if I come to Bermuda again.
Thanks Dave

Hi James,
A brief but sincere thanks for the fine half day we spent on the water. Photos came out good. Thanks for working with Elizabeth on the casting; we're both rusty as heck. I suspect I'd have hooked one eventually, but I wanted E to give it a go.
Thanks again, James. Next time join us for dinner at Pompano.

Thanks again for the great days fishing last week. I never casted to so many bonefish in two days, and never hooked up to three in a morning, much less landing two . Thanks to your help, I also casted to more while wading at Cambridge Beaches. They followed, but never ate the fly. As far as I'm concerned, you're the best. Can't wait till my next trip to Bermuda to try again. -Dennis P. Lahiff - USA

This was forwarded to us -
Thanks for pointing me in the direction of Pearman. He is a excellent guide - we had a great morning even though we didn't catch anything ( bone fishing is uniquely challenging the first few times). We saw about 15 fish, one school of about 6. Neil

James, just wanted to say thanks for a great time. All three of us had fun and are still talking about the one that got away. Dave - USA

Thank you both so very much for a great evening yesterday. We had real fun. I enjoyed the chance of having a rod in my hands! Shame about the one that got away, though. Wendy - Bermuda


No matter how good a man gets at fishing, he'll never land every fish he hooks.
