If I were to celebrate my birthday with a fishing trip, it would be to the abacos. Not really for the bonefish, though you could spend a day doing that.

You would definitely need to narrow it down a little. Do you want to fly? Personally, I would go to Labrador for brookies; Alaska for the silver run in early September; or British Columbia for salmon/steelheads if I had a week. Catching the brown trout run out of the great lakes is doable over a weekend. Now part of the adventure is seeing the area and it would be a shame if you didn't explore Alaska or Canada

I'm defintely not opposed going to Labrador for some brook trout and not opposed to flying somewhere to fish. Have any experience with any guides up there/lodging? Looking for some specific guides/lodges/fishing locations if anyone has any.

Dear Johnkies:

The fact that Alexa doesn't live here is exactly why I'm asking on this message board to get some suggestions from actual human fisherman who have some experience and not the voice of a robotic woman with absolutely no fishing knowledge.

Dear Cookie,
You really need to provide information. A just want to fish isn't going to get you much. Are you going solo? How long to you want to fish? Are you afraid of the dark? Can you take care of yourself in the woods, in a tent, for a week with the knowledge that the nearest help is a helicopter/plane ride away? Do you want to be coddled, fed everyday.

Assuming you've got it right about entering your "3rd decade on this planet," you're about to turn 20. Go backpacking. Wind River Range or Beartooth Plateau (that'll be lakes) if you have the time and $, GSMNP if you don't. That stuff gets harder to fit in, in many ways, when you start looking at your 7th decade.

If fishing in Alaska hits your radar - get in touch with me. I can provide you several resources of where to find information. I know a great guide service on the Kenai River. Some saltwater Charter Captains out of Seward, AK.

Ascension Bay

Youíll catch endless amounts of bonefish and get plenty of shots at a permit, also lots of tarpon there too

All this can be done on a budget as well

I'll tag along on a trip like this. A bucket list item for me that isn't too inaccessible
