Stafford Creek Lodge

Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon fishing in the Bahamas

Stafford Creek Lodge is owned by Prescott Smith, son of legendary Andros guide, “Crazy” Charlie Smith. Situated on the peaceful and beautiful Stafford Creek, the lodge is in the ideal location to fish an amazing amount of water on the east side, north, and north west Andros. Beyond just spectacular bonefishing, Prescott has unlocked one of the Bahamas consistent Permit and Tarpon fisheries. If you’re looking to get a Grand Slam in the Bahamas, Stafford Creek is one of the few places that can make that a reality.

Stafford Creek has a staff of hand picked guides, all trained by Prescott to be experts at utilizing the tides, weather and time of year to get the best fishing for bonefish, permit and/or Tarpon. These guides don’t “watch the clock” and fishing days start early, allowing optimal fishing hours on those flats. Guests at Stafford Creek Lodge fish from comfortable, high performance Maverick, Action Craft, and Hughes flats skiffs with 90-115 hp Yamaha 4 stroke engines.

Anglers staying at Stafford Creek Lodge will enjoy convenient access to the famous bonefishing grounds of the Joulter Cays, the west side of Andros, countless tidal creeks and lakes that pepper the island, and the local east side flats. Guests are driven to a number of separate boat launch sites, including Red Bays and Conch Sound, which allows angers access to more remote water.

The two most well known fisheries are the wading angler’s paradise, the Jouters and the land of the giants, Andros’ Westside. The Joulter Cays are made up of about 50 tiny islands spread over a 125 square-mile sand bank and is a must fish for anglers who enjoy stalking bonefish on foot. The channels that run though the Joulters keep bonefish on the flats during all tides and make it a Permit hotspot. The remote Westside flats accessed from Red Bays are some of the world’s best flats specifically for targeting big bonefish: There are very few other places on earth that offer bonefish this big and this unsophisticated. The eastside flats and creeks have smaller fish in schools or medium to large bonefish cruising in doubles and small groups.

Individual guest cabins accommodate anglers in spacious quarters. There are three cabins for a maximum of 6 guests, in one-of-a-kind rooms with local Androsian touches, such as bed frames made of local hardwoods. Each room has two queen-sized beds with down feather pillows, a spacious bathroom, air conditioning, ceiling fans, rod holders, wading boot drying racks, a mini refrigerator stocked with sodas, lemonade, and water, a coffee maker and fresh coffee, a hairdryer, basic first aid kit, boat towels, bath robes/wraps, and an alarm clock/radio.

The cottages also have a sliding door that opens to a creek-side private deck with a view of Stafford Creek and a screened-in back door that opens to the yard, which is lined with fruit trees and tropical flowers attracting migratory and residential birds.

Although Stafford Creek Lodge is for bonefishing enthusiasts, other activities are available upon request such as diving or bird watching.

Stafford Creek Lodge has a well-trained, full time chef who creates excellent meals designed around fresh seafood and other local ingredients. Breakfasts and dinners are served in the main lodge; lunch is packed in a cooler and eaten on the bonefishing flats. Conch fritters and other hors ‘deouvres are served with post-fishing cocktails.
