Chances are it’s already getting colder where you are, so here’s a warming thought: a free bonefishing trip to Andros Island in the Bahamas.

Fishing-lodge operator Deneki Outdoors is holding a drawing for a week’s fishing for one angler at their lodge on south Andros anytime between November 2009 and December 2010. All you have to do is sign up for the company’s e-mail newsletter here. The entry deadline is November 11, when the winner will be announced.

I’ve fished Andros, although not at this particular lodge, and can report superb bonefishing and ice-cold local beer in what’s truly a tropical paradise. Airfare is not included, but because Andros is close to various south Florida cities that’s not too bad of a hit.

I have no particular tie to Deneki Outdoors (No, darn it. I haven’t gotten a free sample.), but thought the offer was interesting enough to pass along here. The odds of winning are certainly better than a lottery ticket. Do be careful, though. If you win, you might actually have to go bonefishing in the Bahamas. Oh, woe is me….
