ANDROS - SOUTH - BIGHT - ANDROS SOUTH BONEFISH LODGE

Location

Andros South Bonefish Lodge is located on South Andros Island, in the Bahamas. This is the least developed of the 'Family Island' group. It is 30 miles West of Nassau, the Bahamian capital, and 175 miles Southeast of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Lodge itself is on Kemp's Bay, on the Southeast shore of South Andros, near Little Creek, which connects to the West Coast.

The Fishing

South Andros is riddled with shallow tidal creeks and inland flats, marl flats and mangrove creeks, all with packed white-sand beds, great for wading. There are innumerable keys, shorelines, and creeks that can be fished from the skiffs. The average 'schoolie' bonefish in the area will be 2-4 pounds, but there are much larger fish (5-10 lb) around, particularly over on the island's West Coast, which is about an hour's (depending on weather) boat-ride away. Tarpon, when found, can be 40-100 lbs. An ocean-going Power catamaran is available, at extra cost, to fish the nearby blue holes, the Barrier Reef, or the famed 'Tongue of the Ocean', which descends suddenly to a depth of 6,000 feet. Breakfast begins at 6:30pm, and boats are on the water by 8am. It is a ride of 15 minutes to an hour to reach the most productive habitats and anglers are heading home by 4pm for drinks at the Slack Tide Tiki Bar on the Lodge's beach and a 6:30pm gourmet dinner.

Fly and Spin Welcome!

Getting There

Andros South Lodge is a 20 minute drive from the airport in Congo Town on South Andros. There are several options for flying into Congo Town. One excellent way of reaching this part of Andros Island is by Lynx Air International. Lynx Air flies non-stop flights, multiple times per week, between Fort Lauderdale and Congo Town. Lynx Air's mid-day Saturday flight matches up well with Andros South's weekly changeover. Lynx Air flies from the Fort Lauderdale International airport, allowing for easy connections with flights within the United States, and outbound guests clear US Customs in Fort Lauderdale, which is usually a fairly smooth process. Tickets on Lynx Air can be booked online at http://www.lynxair.com, or by telephone at 888-596-9247. Groups of more than 6 persons may also consider a private charter from Ft. Lauderdale. We work with several charter companies in Ft. Lauderdale, and would be happy to work with you to arrange a charter flight. Once you arrive in Congo Town, a representative from Andros South Lodge will meet you at the airport for the short drive to the lodge.
