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 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.

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 to ensure that everyone is having a good time."
