  Here’s my short and sweet account of IFTD 2018.  I’ll try to keep the sarcasm to a minimum, but I’ll be honest, I get hungry easily and I’ve learned that iCast isn’t an ideal environment for hungry people. So I braced myself and packed the essentials: Cheez-Its and beef jerky. Luckily those babies fit into my diet perfectly because we all know how tasking it is to meal prep for a trip (Kidding, I don’t meal prep.

My family and I snuck away for a long weekend to the Exumas a few weeks back. We weregoing to be seeing the sights and enjoying time with friends, so I didn’t contact any guidesbefore we left. My two buddies who are brothers (Cam is the owner of Farther Expeditions)and I were all pretty solid fisherman, so it was to be a pure “Do-It- Yourself when time allowed”kinda trip. We landed in Georgetown on a Thursday and first thing Friday began the journey upto Staniel Cay, where we had planned to spend most of our time on this particular trip....
