Water Cay Bonefish Lodge
Easy to reach, yet remote and virtually unfished... could there be a better combination? The vast area surrounding Grand Bahama Island's Water Cay has been largely forgotten because of the damage caused by past hurricanes and the lack of road access to the area. We have always known the habitat that surrounds Water Cay to be an untapped treasure and we have tried for years to resurrect this area by encouraging existing outfitters to fish the area. Having had little or no success, we are now doing it ourselves! So if you have a weekend or a week, come to Water Cay and experience a bonefishing bonanza that is very easy to reach!

Ragged Island Lodge
If you were to look for the most remote spot in all the Bahamas, you would look no further than the Jumento Cays which terminate in the south at Ragged Island. This collection of beautiful little cays and cuts have no scheduled air service and there is only one settlement at Duncan Town. Here, 60 isolated souls live a subsistence lifestyle counting on the sea's bounty to get them through. For the right angler, Ragged Island and the sprawling Jumento Cays to the north, offer a heady brew of unfished angling opportunities making it a light tackle angling paradise.

The Villas at Crooked Island
Bordered by a pristine blue water reef just offshore, the spectacular northwest corner of Crooked Island has a sleepy "out-island" feel. For adventuresome anglers, The Villa's provide budget-minded anglers with excellent bonefishing opportunities in Crooked Island's most remote areas... and a comfortable base to return to each evening after another great day on the flats.

Abaco Lodge
The Marls of Abaco... mention these two words to the experienced flats fisherman and be prepared to see his eyes light up as he begins a discourse that usually begins with “A maze of seemingly endless turtle grass sand flats...” and often ends with “virtually unexplored and unfished.” Opened in 2009, the Abaco Lodge offers the best way to fish this fantastic area.

Swain's Cay Lodge
For anglers who want to fish the South and Middle Bights of Andros, the best spot to be visit is Swain’s Cay Lodge. This beautiful lodge is located on a long white sand beach and is within easy striking distance of each bight. From Swains’ Cay you can easily fish the ocean-side flats, as well as, both the South and Middle Bights... on consecutive days if you choose! And not only does Swain’s Cay offer fishing to satisfy the most diehard of fishermen, it also offers amenities to please their non-angling companions and spouses.

Big Charlie's Lodge
For anglers wishing to fish the North Bight of Andros, the best spot to visit is Big Charlie’s Lodge at Cargill Creek. In 2009, Charlie Neymour and his wife Fatiha moved their lodge operations from Behring Point to this new facility in Cargill Creek. Charlie and his hand-picked team of guides is one of the best guide cadres in all of the Bahamas. They, of course, fish the North Bight which encompasses a huge and prolific area in itself, but they also have great access to the productive ocean side flats that run up the east side of Andros, as well as excellent access to the wild West Side of Andros.

Grey's Point Bonefish Inn

North Andros Fly Fishing
In the Joulter Cays, the flats are mainly hard, white sand making this area an ideal spot for anglers who like to wade. We feel the best way to access this are is with North Andros Fly Fishing located in Nichol’s Town. Comfortable accommodations, great guides, good equipment and delicious food make this spot a sure winner.

Deep Water Cay was founded in 1958 by two men searching for the very best place for world-class bonefishing. Sportsman, avid fisherman and renowned fishing guide, Gil Drake, and avid angler and editor of Field and Stream, A.J. McClane, started this lodge on the small private island off Grand Bahama. Deep Water Cay is where generations of anglers have come for the legendary flats fishing and to take their places alongside their fathers and grandfathers and some of the world’s most famous anglers. Some of the Bahamas best guides are at the Cay too, descendants of the original guides and legends in their own right.

Here, Bill Howard runs Mars Bay Bonefish Lodge and provides visiting anglers the best lodge-based access to the southern tip of Andros and the fantastic creeks that lie in between. Grassy and Hawk's Nest Creeks are within easy reach and the legendary flats of Jack Fish Channel, Water Cay and Curley Cut Cay are within a 25-45 minute run from the lodge.
