Andros Island Bonefish Club - The Bahamas

Located approximately 150 miles southeast of Miami, Andros Island is the largest island in The Bahamas chain, yet it remains the least populated. Andros Island Bonefishing Club (AIBC) is located a mere 100 yards from a productive, wadeable flat where bonefish are frequently spotted tailing in the nearby waters.

Andros Island Bonefish Club Fishing

Sightcast these world-famous flats for trophy-sized bonefish. Here, you'll find some of the best saltwater sports fishing in all the world and more fishable flats than any area of the Caribbean. These waters are renowned for incomparable sheer numbers of bonefish - in large schools averaging 3-5 pounds. Trophy-sized bonefish exceeding 10-pounds regularly test anglers' skills. The occasional and elusive permit and the resident tarpon found cruising the deeper creeks on the west side attract many serious anglers to the Club.
Barracuda are also available and can be found on the flats most of the year. Jacks, snappers, and sharks are often encountered on the flats while stalking bonefish, permit, or tarpon. Having a rod rigged and ready to cast will greatly increase your chances of hooking these fish.
Boats:  You'll fish from 16' to 18' Dolphin Super Skiffs with poling platforms, 90 to 140 HP Yamaha outboard motors, and a spacious casting deck. The boats are roomy, fast, and comfortable.
 Shawn Leadon, owner and head guide, leads a staff of English-speaking Bahamian guides known internationally for their skills and extensive experience on the Andros and other Bahamian flats.
Equipment:  No fishing tackle is provided. A detailed list of what to pack is in our confirmation packet. Rod rentals are available. Fly rod rental is $35.00 per day
Spin rod rental is $25.00 per day
Fishing License is not included in the package, $20.00 per week + 12% tax.

And an additional fee of $100.00 fuel surcharge per day.

Late winter - January and February are the best months for big bonefish. It is possible to catch tuna and wahoo. There are lots of barracuda on the flats.

Early summer - May and June: Bonefish, tarpon, and barracuda are plentiful. Winds are calmer, and afternoon rain showers are possible.
Late summer and fall - July, August, and September: Morning fishing is best for bonefish. Flats heat up quickly. This is a great time for landing high numbers of tarpon on the west side of Andros. This time of year has the calmest winds, except for the possibility of tropical storms.

Brad Staples' Recap:

"I very much enjoyed my time at Andros Island Bonefish Club. Everyone was really nice, and the fishing was good. During our week-long stay at Andros Island, the fish were very aggressive and really good size. This is a great destination for easy travel from the states. Andros is a family-run operation, and they work hard at making sure that everyone is having a good time."
