Paradise Unleashed

by Jeff Harris

Cast Away
Nothing beats hooking your first bonefish—akin, some say, to catching a speeding car while standing in knee-deep water. The shadowy creatures lurk in the waters of the Seychelles, Christmas Island, and the Bahamas, but they're like guppies compared to the slippery devils that inhabit the Florida Keys. The vast network of flats around the town of Islamorada is primo fishing territory, and there are plenty of guides willing to share their secret spots. The ultimate aquatic battle starts at the break of dawn, so a good night's sleep is mandatory. Check into family-friendly Cheeca Lodge, where the spa, pool, and full menu of activities will occupy your traveling companions while you're out battling the bones (it also happens to be former President Poppy Bush's favorite fishing lodge). There's no guarantee you'll catch one, but where's the sport in a sure thing?
