Weighing in at 14.6 pounds, this monster fish was landed by guest Jim Easterling and the great Meko Glinton, a third generation guide at Deep Water Cay.

“In 18 years of angling off the East End of Grand Bahama, I’ve never tracked a bonefish that size,” shares Meko Glinton, a top fishing guide at Deep Water Cay. “It was a proud moment in my career as a guide and is a tremendous attribute to our healthy fishery.”
