On July 26, Deep Water Cay guest Kevin Smith caught this 12.25-pound Bonefish, with his guide Meko Glinton, to cap off an epic four days. On the first day of his trip, Kevin had landed six bonefish up to 5 pounds, which made him very happy. Then Day Two produced eight bonefish, including two 9-pounders. On Day Three, he caught just two fish, but they were 7 and 9 pounds respectively. And then, on his final day on the water, Kevin landed nine bones, including the monster.
