Our guide staff is comprised of some of the most skilled and experienced guides in all of The Bahamas. Each of them grew up fishing the waters of Andros Island, hence possess intimate knowledge of the waters that our bonefish call home.
Our guides know each and every acre of flats as well as every nook and cranny of the mangrove creeks. They know the tides, they know the fish and they’ll know exactly where to take you as conditions change. You’ll be shocked at how quickly and easily they spot these elusive bones. Even if you’ve never bonefished before, they’ll likely have your reel singing many times before the day’s end. And if your guide suddenly changes direction while poling get ready; he sees a good fish and he’s working to put you in the best possible position for your shot.
A day on the water with one of them is like a day out fishing with a good friend, one who will work tirelessly to put you on fish and entertain you with stories about the islands.
We take our fishing and safety equipment very seriously.
We have top-quality loaner rods and reels available for your use. If you break a rod and need to borrow an 8-weight to target bonefish, there’s no problem and no charge. We’ve got 10-weight fly rods available for encounters with barracuda, as well as spinning gear, which can be great for windy days, or those cases where launching a pencil poppe across a flat sounds like a good time!
Our boats are all equipped with poling platforms, captain’s chairs and plenty of storage. Our guides carry safety equipment like SPOT Satellite GPS Messengers and tool kits, as well as backup fishing gear like pliers, extra tippet and flies.
