Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer with a bonefish he caught while fishing the flats around the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas for this elusive and spooky fish.
This past off-season, Meyer and his high school age son Nate fished off Islamorada in the Florida Keys with former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson aboard Johnson’s boat “Three Rings”. Nate caught a huge mahi-mahi on that outing.
Meyer escaped to the Keys before his first season with the Buckeyes, fishing for tarpon, shark and barracuda with former NFL quarterback Mike Pawlawski, who hosts the “Gridiron Outdoors” show on the Outdoor Channel.
Last year, while on a vacation to the island of Nevis in the Caribbean, Meyer and his wife were part of a climbing party that scaled the 3,232-foot volcano Nevis Peak, which dominates the tiny island of just 36 square miles.
