The Fly Fishing
Here at Andros South, we pride ourselves on employing the best professional guides and investing in the best possible gear to ensure your trip exceeds your expectations. Your enjoyment and safety are our top priorities.
You will find that our guides know exactly how to fit the experience to your skill set and your fishing objectives. You'll also find that our top-notch equipment ensures your safe, comfortable enjoyment of the bounties of the South Andros flats.
South Andros is flanked to the east by The Tongue of the Ocean, a deep-water trough that drops to more than five thousand feet not more than a mile offshore. Along the edge of the drop lies the third largest barrier reef in the world. South Andros Island itself is riddled with innumerable tidal creeks and inland flats, all home to hundreds of thousands of hungry bonefish.
Variety is most definitely the spice of life here on South Andros. There are miles and miles of easily-waded white sand flats as well as hidden, unspoiled mangrove creeks peppered with large singles and doubles. Inland lakes fill up with eager schools of bonefish on the change of every tide. Expansive ocean-side flats attract bruisers from the deep (no, that's no shark - it's a bonefish, mon - cast now!). Remote, rarely visited cays are home only to schools of bonefish numbering in the thousands. The diversity and size of the fishery mean a completely different fishing experienceevery day of your trip.
Location, location, location. No amount of preparation, equipment or planning can replace the natural bounty that a productive, unexploited bonefishing location delivers. South Andros is, most definitely, the location for bonefish.
South Andros Island is widely known as the Bonefishing Capital of the World. With the island's endless, diverse flats, the opportunities are boundless. You want to fish to giant schools of hungry bonefish? No problem. Have your sights set on casting to large tailing bones? We can make it happen.
Expect to fish to schools of bonefish that average 2 to 4 pounds, with larger fish always swimming with the school. You will also have many shots at tailing and cruising bonefish ranging from 5 to 10 pounds plus. These opportunities will come while wading hard sand and marl flats or being poled along in one of our fully equipped flats skiffs. We're not big on keeping score, but expect some days where you lose count of the number of bones you hook and land.
If you grow tired of catching bonefish during your stay with us there are other fishes to target. Large, aggressive barracuda are plentiful and hungry. If you have never experienced the explosive strike of a "cuda", be prepared for your heart to stop. If you've never had the chance to tackle a shark on a fly rod, be prepared for your arms to fall off. Finally, through the week you may find the opportunity to cast to willing jacks, tarpon, permit and snapper.
Andros South is excited to offer an exploratory bluewater fishing program that allows guests to sample the great fishing available in the Tongue of the Ocean, just to the east of South Andros Island. Depending on the season, dorado, tuna, wahoo, king mackerel, ocean barracuda, sharks and other species are available.
Anglers use a variety of techniques, including fly fishing, using live bait on spinning gear, and trolling. Bottom fishing for snapper and grouper can also be a great option. The fishing platform is a 25-foot power catamaran captained by Rosewell Rahming, an experienced local captain. There is an additional charge for each day of bluewater fishing.
The offshore fishing near South Andros Island is a phenomenal resource, and yet is virtually untouched. Join us for some fun in the deep water! Please contact us for more information.
