Shanny Newbold Pinder joined the Coastal Angler Magazine team the summer of 2010. She always bears a huge smile and loves a good time.
In addition to distributing the magazine across North and South Bimini, Shanny ensures her dad, Bonefish Ebbie, submits his inshore fishing forecast every month! And, when her dad and mom are off island, Shanny ensures Ebbie’s Bimini Bonefish Club, which is comprised of five guest rooms, waterfront restaurant and bar, store, docks, and fly-fishing guide service, run smoothly and proficiently.
Shanny grew up in Nassau, but now considers Bailey Town, Bimini home. She’s the mom to a spirited poodle, who recently became a mom to four puppies and who also likes to ride in Shanny’s golf card to deliver the magazine.
Based upon the length of Eleuthera (110 miles; 180 km), there are two distributors who lend their support to ensuring the magazine can be found from Harbour Island and Spanish Wells, all the way down to South Eleuthera: Darrin Sands, who is also a real estate professional with Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty in Spanish Wells, and Al J. Curry, who you’ll find above and below the water at Ocean Fox Cotton Bay Scuba Diving and Deep Sea Fishing out of Davis Harbour.
Darrin Sands was born in Nassau, but moved out of the city to Spanish Wells in 1975. He was involved in the lobster Fishing industry for 30 years, gaining extensive knowledge of the trade and the archipelago of the Bahamas. He joined Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty in 2006. Darrin is a private pilot, who in his free time loves island hopping and IT consulting. If you’re looking to buy or sell property on Eleuthera, Darrin is the man to call!
Al Curry is the owner of Ocean Fox Cotton Bay at Davis Harbour in South Eleuthera. He is a certified PADI instructor. Al, and his wife Janice, are from Houston. The couple fell in love with Eleuthera when visiting the island on vacation and later bought a house to spend their retirement. Retirement didn’t last for very long, Al bought a diving and sport-fishing business — Ocean Fox Cotton Bay, and now spends his days showing others some of the most beautiful spots of Eleuthera. Like to fish? Call Al. Like to SCUBA dive and snorkle? Call Al. (And tell him Coastal Angler Magazine sent you.)
Team Grand Bahama
Alice Frances is the Coastal Angler Magazine ‘woman-on-the-ground’ on Grand Bahama, responsible for distribution and spreading the word about the magazine, among additional responsibilities. Alice stepped into this role when her husband Paul, who was also a radio personality on COOL 96 FM and known affectionately on Grand Bahama as “Crazy White Man”, became ill. With great sadness, we share Paul passed away, but Alice continues the Coastal Angler Magazine tradition on Grand Bahama, which Paul so passionately embraced.
Team Nassau / New Providence
Terrance Roberts is the Coastal Angler Magazine representative for Nassau/New Providence. Terrance was born on New Providence and when not working he loves riding, socializing, fishing, baking, traveling and meeting people from around the world.
Terrance distributes Coastal Angler Magazine across Nassau and New Providence, he is responsible for identifying new distribution locations, and he ensures magazines are delivered to the airport and mail boats for delivery to other Bahamas islands. He is also the person to see on New Providence if you are interested in advertising in the magazine!
Terrance is detail-oriented, a go getter, and very personable. We’re very fortunate to have him on the Coastal Angler Bahamas team.
