  1. Hi all, My family goes down to the Turks & Caicos every other March for a week. Last trip (2017) I brought my 9wt for the first time to attempt some kind of DIY bonefish wading. I got a few books before the trip and did all the research on spots to hit. It was pretty windy that week we were there but I stilled tried to go out for a few hours here and there. Of course I didn't catch a fish... The main section I was planning on fishing is called Flamingo Lake. It's long and shallow and looked like a wading paradise. The author of one book I got had fished here so I was sure it was going to be nice. When I got there, I was surprised to find it VERY muddy. I didn't even want to start walking in as I was afraid I'd get stuck, die and my wife would curse my name for all eternity. So I drove down along the lake looking for a more solid spot but never really found it. This was just about as the tide was turning to come back in. I ended up finding a canal I could fish from shore, but was really bummed I couldn't wade that flat. Anyway, I was hoping someone here with some saltwater flats experience could give me some ideas or tips? Are these flats possibly just muddy around the edges, and as you wade in get a more solid bottom? Are the flats more solid at a certain tide? Anything would be great as we have another trip booked to go down there this coming March 2019. And I can't go for a guide because it's $1,000/day
  2. Hi Folks! I purchased my waders and am VERY happy with them......however, I also purchased my boots to fit the stockings on them. The boots I got were Simms G3's and I LOVE THE SUPPORT..... However, I cannot get the same feel on the boots w/o the Simms Waders in them..... I had to upsize to accommodate the waders....... These boots were the BEST feeling boots for me EVER......so if I fish without waders how do I make them work for me? Can I use them , they were expensive .....or should I look for something else???? Mike
