Andros Island Bonefish Club

Fishing on Andros Island

Andros Island Bonefish Club offers easy access to the famed Bahamas bonefishing of northern Andros. Andros Island Bonefish Lodge is conveniently situated on the mouth of Carghill Creek at the eastern end of the North Bight of Andros, Bahamas. The fishing lodge is a stone’s throw away from a productive, wadeable flat. Stretching in all directions are miles more of healthy Bahamas bonefishing flats.

The north and middle bights of Andros are comprised of channels and cays interlaced with bonefishing flats, meaning that bonefishing guides can often find leeward fishing regardless of wind direction. At Andros Island Bonefish Club, anglers can expect chances to cast to large numbers of medium sized bones with chances at the huge, double-digit fish that made Andros a famous bahamas bonefishing destination.

Anglers will enjoy an unusually diverse bonefishing experience at Andros Island Bonefish Club. Flats range from wadeable, hard sand to deeper, soft marl. In certain areas large schools of bonefish are common; in others larger singles and doubles are the norm.

An advantage of fishing out of Andros Island Bonefish Club is that its bonefishing guides are all extremely experienced and can use this diversity to the advantage of weather conditions and each angler’s specific bonefishing preferences. Catch and release is practiced while bonefishing at Andros Island Bonefish Club and the guides don’t keep any bonefish.

You may see an occasional permit on certain flats during most of the year, and there are resident tarpon in the deeper creeks on the west side of Andros Island. These non-migratory tarpon, averaging about 30-60 pounds, although fish well over 100 pounds have been landed. Bear in mind, however, that encounters with permit or tarpon are not common in most areas of the Bahamas. The barracuda, jack and snapper fishing, however, can be quite consistent.

 Andros Island Bonefish Club uses seven 16-foot Dolphin Super Skiffs and three Hewes boats, powered alternately by reliable 70-hp, 80-hp and 90-hp Yamaha outboards. All skiffs are equipped with poling platforms for stalking bigger Bahamas bonefish. Operating each vessel is one of Andros Island Bonefish Club’s team of dedicated Bahamas bonefishing guides, including owner Rupert Leadon and his brothers Nelson and Brian. Many of these Bahamas fishing guides have more than fifteen years of experience guiding on the flats surrouding Carghill Creek and Andros Island Bonefish Club.

The lodge itself is a modern, comfortable facility, situated feet from the Atlantic. Built in 1988, the fishing lodge was renovated in 1990. All twenty nine rooms are clean, comfortable and air conditioned.

There is a lounge area (bar) and dining room overlooking the water. Each room has a great view of the ocean and can accommodate up to three people and includes a private bath, personal refrigerator, ample dresser and closet space and a ceiling fan. Several of the rooms have satellite television (although service throughout the Bahamas is very unreliable). Daily housekeeping is provided and laundry service is available upon request. Guests at Andros Island Bonefish Club have access to the adjacent Creekside property and amenities, including an oceanfront swimming pool.

Meals are served in the dining room at Andros Island Bonefish Club. Each morning hot breakfast of eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast, fresh fruit and juice is served before a day of fishing. Guests then hand pick their own lunches which are put in coolers and transferred to the skiffs. Bottled water is provided and soft drinks, juice or Gatorade are available on request.

On your return from the day of guided Bahamas bonefishing, hors d’oeuvres are served. Dinners usually consist of chicken, pork or beef or local seafood including grouper, mahi, lobster (August 1-March 31), fish and conch. After dinner, tasty deserts and fresh coffee are served. A bartender is available to serve you a cold Kalik or drink of your choice.
