South Andros Island Fishing
South Andros Island has long been synonymous with the largest bonefish in the Caribbean. The south end is vast, with intricate creeks and interior lagoons, which provides no shortage of opportunity to deliver a big bonefish on any given day.
Quality habitat makes fly fishing in South Andros prolific and plentiful. Andros is the largest island in the Bahamas chain, which means it houses more unpressured flats per square mile than anywhere else in the country. In fact, these fisheries are some of the largest and most varied in the world, offering you opportunities to wade or fish from the boat on white sand ocean-side flats, tidal creeks, turtle grass expanses, bights and mangrove riddled environments.
This incredible variety also makes Andros Island somewhat of an anomaly. No matter how many years anglers have been returning to the island, there’s always someplace new to explore. Different fly-fishing guides specialize in different areas. No two places are alike on any given day and getting lost in this Bahamian bonefishing trance is a large part of South Andros’s overall appeal.
Great bonefish live here and ever so often guests will encounter the occasional permit or tarpon, so be ready. Offshore and reef species such as wahoo, tuna, dorado, seasonal billfish, snapper, barracuda and grouper also provide good sport and trips can be arranged to mix things up a bit.
For more than 20 years well-traveled anglers have targeted this lodge on South Andros Island. Why? Because it's ideally located within striking distance of the island’s south and west side fisheries, while also offering anglers exceptional diversity across endless miles of flats in adjacent creeks and lagoons. For best-in-class fly fishing for bonefish in the Bahamas, South Andros is it.
This lodge consists of an attractive plantation-style manor surrounded by tropical flowers and palm trees, idyllically situated on the east side of South Andros Island. The ocean-side property offers a beach with hammocks, a communal fire pit and a view to die for. These prime logistics also mean no boat trailering. The guides will conveniently pick you up each morning and deliver you to great fishing.
Upon arrival, you’ll be treated to plush ocean-side accommodations that go above and beyond the Bahamas' status quo. This lodge has a team of veteran fly fishing guides, focused on delivering an exceptional experience by providing you with quality services and a quantity of fish. Relax in style when your day’s done with five-star cuisine and services, a top-shelf bar, fully stocked fly shop and a lodge designed for ultimate comfort off the water.
This trip is situated amid palm trees and spectacular ocean vistas on the east side of South Andros Island, Bahamas. Andros is the largest of what Bahamians call “the Family Islands,” and remains one of the least developed islands in the archipelago. This laidback setting delivers a fly-fishing dreamscape divided by inland creeks and large channels, called bights.
The lodge is a five-minute boat run north or south to Deep Creek and Little Creek. These ocean cuts open up to vast interiors of inland flats, scattershot with more than 120 square miles of small cays, mangrove habitats, connecting channels and vibrant bonefish populations. Little Creek, depending on the tides, connects to the island’s west side, which can be reached by flat skiffs in about 45 minutes. There you’ll find some of South Andros’ most impressive bonefish — adults that can push over 10 pounds.
The southern flats, also about a 45 minute to an hour run depending on ocean conditions, feature some of the least explored angling opportunities in the region. Think endless, wadeable flats, abundant bonefish schools, spectacularly mysterious blue holes and no competing boats or anglers in sight.
