Andros Island is one on the most notorious destinations in The Bahamas and has developed a reputation worldwide as a fantastic fishery for a range of species and especially bonefish. It is the largest of 26 inhabited Bahamian Islands and home to Andros South Lodge. Whilst it is considered a single island it is actually made up of hundreds of small islets, cays and three main islands connected by a series of mangrove estuaries. There are three main bights that split the major islands that provide a gateway between the east and west side of the island.
It is the myriad of tidal lagoons and access to the sheltered west side and the expansive east side flats that make Andros one of the finest bonefishing destinations on the planet. With a wonderful mix of smaller schooling bonefish through to big singles and doubles cruising the ocean-side flats, this is a bonefisher’s paradise.
The lodge at Andros South proudly claim that they are not a luxury lodge but far more a lodge for people who love fly fishing. The accommodation is comfortable but casual, the service is excellent, the food is good and the focus is on fishing.
The fishery on South Andros is huge, varied and productive. They fish in four parts of the island; tidal creeks on the East Side, hundreds of small keys off the southern tip of the island, the West Side which is known for large fish, inland ponds and creeks in the middle of the island. Some areas tend to hold large groups of fish while others are home to larger fish in smaller groups. It is our experience that first-time and experienced anglers alike have a great time on the flats of South Andros. There are lots of opportunities for both wading and skiff fishing, depending on your preferences and the conditions.
In 2021 the lodge replaced their old skiffs with a new fleet. The new fleet of skiffs have already taken many anglers on successful flats fishing quests throughout the 2021/22 season. Following from angler feedback the lodge have further improved the new skiffs by adding lean bars on the casting deck to make for an all round more comfortable fishing experience.
