Page 16 of 83 | 17 After a productive expedition to Isla Mujeras, I was back in Cayman just long enough to say hello to my family, unpack and then repack for Panama. In fact, I'm writing this issue's editorial from the lush hills overlooking picturesque Piñas Bay. It's a nice backdrop, and my home away from home, as I've traveled here more than 50 times. If you have not experienced it, you should put it on your list. Regarding the roosterfish research, it is still ongoing, so I'll have to report on that in an upcoming issue. In this spirit of fishing travel, one place I've never fished but have heard so much about is South Louisiana. Fortunately, Fred Garth, the editor-in-chief of GHM, has caught many fish there and has some very fishy stories to tell. You can read about his most recent visit to the Cajun paradise as well as a trip he took to Tarpon Lodge near the tarpon capital of the world, Boca Grande Pass in Florida. Come to think about it, Fred might be having almost as much fun as I am. I guess he deserves it for leading the charge to produce such a beautiful and informative magazine. Another unique fishing destination we've highlighted in the pages of this issue is a place on Georgia's Atlantic Coast called Cabin Bluff. Originally a hunting camp almost 100 years ago, I can best describe the place as "upscale woodsy." The inshore fishing is amazing, as you'll see, and there are plenty of other activities to keep your adrenaline flowing when you're not fishing. We'll also take you to Pensacola Beach, Florida, near the offices of Guy Harvey Magazine, to examine a new kind of fishing guide—one who doesn't use a boat! Finally, we travel to Long Island in the Bahamas to visit with Joe Ierna, a long-time and good friend of the Guy Harvey organization, as he describes what it's like to fish and live off the land like a local. There's a lot more in this issue, such as a tribute to some of the best photography we've ever published, some recipes and a controversial take on profiting from public resources written by Nick Honachefsky, editor of GHM's Complete Angler. Once again, as I review the pages of this issue, I must commend all of the fine writers and photographers for another outstanding effort. And, before I go, I should mention that you can join me on our "Conservation Cruise" aboard the Norwegian Escape, which has my artwork all the way down its 1,200-foot-long hull. I'll be onboard painting, speaking and generally having a great time during the week of October 21-28, 2017. Please come along. Go to for more info. Fair winds and tight lines.
