ANDROS SOUTH LODGE - BAHAMAS

Andros South Lodge is located in the remote settlement of Kemp’s Bay on the southeastern shore of South Andros Island. This particular area of Andros is home to an amazing number of tidal creeks and inland flats that provide incredible habitat for hungry bonefish of all sizes. With one of the most experienced guide staffs in the area, you will be fishing this large and diverse habitat in the most effective manner possible. After each productive day on the water, you return to the lodge for cocktail hour at the lodge's "wet-bar" located directly on the beach. When the sun goes down, everyone adjourns to the dining room for homemade meals of local seafood, lobster, chicken, and conch. Cigars, cocktails, and conversation can be enjoyed on the main patio before retiring to your own single-occupancy, private cabana to prepare for the next day’s fishing.

Accommodations and Lodging

Andros South LodgeAndros South is a friendly, laid-back bonefishing lodge that concentrates on providing a fishing experience that is second to none. The lodge is situated on a beautiful white sand beach, which takes full advantage of the consistent trade winds of the Bahamas. After fishing, take a relaxing swim each evening or hone your casting skills on the beach. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and air conditioned, and each feature a private bathroom and a warm relaxing shower. Probably the most enticing fact about the accommodations at Andros South is that each angler will have their own private room. Unless otherwise requested, each angler visiting the lodge will have single-occupancy accommodations - something that is both rare and difficult to find at most bonefish lodges. The dining room and outdoor patio are welcoming and laid back. They are the perfect place to enjoy cocktails, a good cigar, and great meals with friends. If you’re looking for a very comfortable place to spend a vacation fishing, relaxing, and enjoying a quiet island in the Bahamas, you will find all of the above at Andros South.

From fresh snapper and grouper, to lobster and conch, this is fresh fish at its finest. You will enjoy a variety of dishes, with an emphasis on traditional Bahamian cooking. The main dish is always complimented with hearty side dishes and topped off with a variety of great desserts. You definitely won’t go hungry. Homemade key lime pie, anyone? The lodge is happy to take special requests for food – if you’ve got dietary requirements, or just a personal preference, they will work hard to accommodate you. Located right on the beach is the lodge's famous tiki bar, affectionately called ‘The Slack Tide’. This is a favorite spot to enjoy the beach, the breeze and drinks and appetizers at the end of your fishing day.

Fishing Information

Andros South BonefishThe majority of the flats of South Andros Island are very accommodating for wading, and it is not uncommon to leave the boat for hours to fish the expansive flats on foot. With extensive oceanside flats as well as inland creek flats, there are limitless options for exploring the area’s fishing. This diversity means that you never have to fish the same place twice and will always be able to find fresh fish. If you enjoy fishing from the boat there are many keys, shorelines, and creeks to keep you busy with shots at cruising bonefish. The average size "schoolie" bonefish in the area will be in the two to four pound range. The larger single and double fish will weigh in between 5 and 10 pounds.

By 8:00 AM each morning, you will be loaded up in the boat and will be casting at bones within 15 minutes to one hour - depending on the fishing area, winds, tides, and personal choices. After a full day of chasing bonefish you can finish the day with a cold Kalik at the local watering-hole, The Little Creek Bar, while your gear is being loaded up for the return trip to the lodge.

Boats and Equipment

Anglers fish from a mix of Dolphin, Mitzi, and Rahming skiffs complete with poling platforms, 85 HP Yamaha outboards, and spacious casting decks. They are roomy, fast and comfortable. It is recommended that anglers bring all of their own gear and equipment, including rods, reels, wading boots, flies and all terminal tackle.

Non-Angling Activities and Options

Although Andros South is primarily a fishing destination, there is a beautiful beach for lounging, reading and relaxing! Be advised, however, that this is a destination that is perhaps best suited for anglers.
