Andros Island Flats

Andros Island Bonefishing Club

Andros Island Bonefishing Club (AIBC) sits 100 yards from a productive, wadeable flat where bonefish are frequently spotted tailing in the nearby waters. 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 numbers of bonefish - typically found in large schools with an average weight between 3-5 pounds. Trophy-sized bonefish exceeding 10 pounds test the skills of even the most seasoned anglers.
The Club is also a haven for those seeking the elusive permit and the resident tarpon found meandering the deeper creeks on the island's west side. Barracuda are also available and can be found on the flats most of the year. Jacks, snappers, and sharks are often encountered while stalking bonefish, permit, or tarpon on the 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." - Brad Staples
