Pleasant Bay Bonefish Lodge
Fly Fishing Trip or Lodge Details:
The Pleasant Bay Bonefish Lodge is located 25 minutes from the South
Andros Airport (Congo Town) in the southern section of the island and is a
short distance from some of the finest bonefishing on the planet. Literally
hundreds of square miles of bone-white flats offer guests unlimited
opportunities to challenge some of the largest yet most cooperative bonefish
anywhere. Each day, guests select to fish nearby creeks or the vast ocean
flats of the South and West Coasts. Breakfast is early, dinner is late, and
in-between is some of the best fishing imaginable. The lodge is peaceful,
air conditioned, very clean and comforting lodge, where excellent service
THE FISHING: Regarded as one of the more scenic areas on the island, the
South Bight has deeper channels and, as it is closer to the ocean, is home
to some of the larger fish in the area. Bonefish are fewer in numbers here,
but, with its combination of bone-white flats, turquoise and emerald waters,
fishing “The Bight” is a most memorable experience.
Just moments from the lodge, Deep Creek quickly opens to a 6-mile wide
bay dotted with dozens of small islands, or “cays”. This area is the perfect
spot for those wishing a longer day on the flats and, as it is a more
protected area, is the place to be if wind is a factor.
Again, just 5 minutes from the lodge, Little Creek is not only a
productive fishery with limitless wading opportunities, but also connects
guests to the infinite flats of the West Coast. For those seeking more
fishing time and the option for a run to the west, Little Creek is the
For anglers wishing to cast to a school of bonefish an acre in size, a
visit to the South and West Coast of South Andros is a must. In and around
Water Cays, Curly Cut, and Grassy Creek it is not uncommon to see hundreds
of bonefish in one dark mass swim closely by. This region is regarded as the
place to be if sheer numbers of fish is the goal for the day. The ocean
flats of this area stretch from horizon to horizon, and fishing pressure is
almost non-existent. Although requiring a 45 minute boat ride, a visit to
this area should be included in your week.
Fishing is good all year long. February and March are good, but obviously
many people are looking to get away from winter conditions. April, May and
June are excellent. July and August means hot weather. September weather is
quite changeable. October, November and December can be excellent.

HOW TO GET THERE: South Andros is approximately 200 miles southeast of
Miami, and 57 miles southwest of Nassau. Western Airlines and Bahamasair
each have morning and afternoon flights from Nassau to the island that last
approximately 15 minutes. For groups as small as six persons, we strongly
recommend a private charter from Ft. Lauderdale, at approximately the same
cost. Approximately one hour in length, a private charter is a great deal of
fun and a most scenic experience.
Upon your landing, we will have a van transport you to The Bonefish Bay
Club, a short drive from the airport. South Andros is quite easy to reach
and East Coast residents can depart early in the morning and, by using the
private charter, be on the island early afternoon of the same day.
