Howard attends to the details. He is an American manager and
has been managing the lodge since it
opened in 2002. There is absolutely nothing
pretentious about the lodge. We won't crack your pepper for you and
you'll not find a mint on your pillow.
Mars Bay Bonefish Lodge is a small lodge situated on the
southeastern tip of Andros that affords anglers a short and easy skiff
ride to pristine flats teeming with unpressured bonefish. The lodge
itself is located on a flat large enough for a dozen fishermen. Mars Bay
is the end of the road. To go any further south you will have to hop in
a boat. That puts you
ten miles closer to the best fishing grounds on Andros than the nearest
lodge. What does that mean to you? No less than a ten mile shorter run
over rough open water and an extra hour fishing each day. You can expect
to encounter everything from large schools of two to four pound tailing
bones, classic sight casting to schools of five to twenty fish in the
five to ten pound category, as well as shots at cruising doubles and
singles exceeding ten pounds!
You will be on the water early and back safely in time for dinner. At the
end of the day if you still want to fish or practice your cast you’re
welcome to step out onto the flats in front of the villa and fish till
dark. We catch bones there on a regular basis. You will
find the accommodations clean and modern; the food is great, the
equipment reliable, the guides excellent, and the beer ice cold.
Please book early as most dates are booked a year in advance.
|What to Bring
See other Items
You could ask any guide on Andros what the single best fly is and
each one would tell you something different. The point is….the
fish aren’t selective. Bring the usual suspects, charlies,
clousers, bitters, shrimp and crab patterns, etc, in white,
pink, and tan.[more tackle]
