Bahamas Bonefishing – Abaco Lodge and Bair’s Lodge
￼Abaco Lodge and Bairs Lodge offer the best flats Bahamas bonefishing, superior equipment, finest accommodations and gourmet food, so why consider anywhere else? Excellent dates are available at a reduced price on Abaco and Andros Islands, the two best bonefishing islands in the Bahamas. Charter and commercial flights available.
To reach Abaco Lodge, you only need to arrive at Marsh Harbour Airport, where you will be whisked to the lodge. Call the Trek office for assistance in arranging your flights into the Abacos. Once you reach the lodge, you will be in Bahamas bonefishing paradise.
Abaco Lodge will house eight anglers in single room, air conditioned suites located on the Marls side of the Abacos between Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay. Amenities include a well stocked bar, dining room, swimming pool and incredible views of the setting sun.
Using Dolphin Skiffs and 4-stroke technology, the best guides on the island will rotate your visits to include the short runs to the Marls that hold schools of bonefish from 2-6 pounds and pairs of fish to double digits. Cruise or trailer boats will be utilized to reach the outer cays on the ocean and bay sides. The idea in the Marls is to be well positioned, especially on the outgoing tides, when the fish come out of the mangrove and into small creeks that become a bonefish highway. Some larger pairs of fish can be seen and stalked by either poling the flats and creeks or wading. In addition to bonefish, you will also have chances at permit and small tarpon.
The lodge is located directly on the beach, on the east side of Andros just south of Congo Town.
Anyone who has fished South Andros the last 15 years or so has heard of Bair’s Lodge. Originally owned and operated by Stanley and Andy Bair, they took a beautiful small cottage on the ocean and turned it into one of the most popular Bahamas bonefishing lodges. The Bairs sold their little operation in 2003 to an Argentine company which operates some of the very best fly fishing lodges in the world. Today, as always, Bair’s Lodge is top of the line for bone fishing.
Bair’s has a maximum capacity of 12 anglers, as they recognize the vast potential of the South Andros fishery. Places like Deep Creek, Little Creek and Curly Cays are well known to the stable of great guides at Bair’s. The best thing about Bair’s is that you always have a place to fish, because you can run in the creeks in bad weather or cruise south to large amounts of fish on calm days. Bair’s has recently purchased a new 18 foot Dolphin Skiff with new a new Mercury motor that will allow anglers to reach their favorite flats quicker.
