Andros Island Bonefishing Club
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 Bonefishing
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 you're stalking bonefish, permit, or tarpon.
Having a rod rigged and ready to cast will greatly increase your chances of hooking these fish.
Fish from 16' to 18' Dolphin Super Skiffs, complete with poling platforms, 90 to 140 h.p. Yamaha motors and a spacious casting deck. The boats are roomy, fast and comfortable.

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. It is a family-run operation, and they work hard at making sure that everyone is having a good time."
