Andros - Two Boys Inn

We're planning a trip to Andros in March or April of next year.

Now we're trying to decide where to stay and how to do it. One option we're looking at is to rent a cottage and contract for an independent guide about 1/2 the time and the rest of the time DIY fishing.

The other option is to go to:

(non-sponsor link removed)

VERY affordable.

Does anyone here have experience with this place?

Good or bad?

Other low cost options (a $3000+ a week lodge is out of the question)

Willi

Andros might not be the most DIY friendly choice in the Bahamas but there are several who have experience in that on this site hopefully you'll get some info from them.

We've done several trips to Acklins which is a very affordable option and really great for DIY. If you'd like to join the group this year let me know. Others like Eleuthera, Abaco, Grand, etc... which are hospitable. I would not recommend Exuma for DIY either.

BTW I had to delete your link to the non-sponsor site per our policy.

Do it. The Neymours' are a priceless experience on North Andros and those prices won't last. One good thing about our present economic stress. It has affected the guides in a BIG way. Maybe bargain for a DIY drop off at Big Wood Cay (after a few days of guiding) on the right tide. Just watch out for the Dingos (wild dogs) DIY from the car is best done somewhere else in the Out Islands. Do Acklins for DIY and a little guiding if Andos is too pricey. Charter a flight from Fl. to Fresh Creek via a dive lodge on No. Andros instead of the Nassau connection if you go there. PM me for more info.

DIY

Aside from Andros, which is a flyfishing landmark, Abaco is supposed to offer some cheap options. I can't remember the place but it was $1,200 with kayaks included. They dropped you off at a new place each day. Non-fisherman were less. I don't know if Josko ever posts anymore but he had a guide that he highly recommended on Andros and he's spent a lot of time there. Acklins is of course way over fished at this point and has no fish on it at all-just do a search on this site of previous trips.

I had good luck on both Exuma and Eleuthera as far as people being friendly. I fished with a guide, Reno Rolle, on Exuma for 2 days and he certainly provided a lot of good DIY advice for the other days. FYI-we caught fish with him and did a lot worse on our own. I'm jealous-have fun.

Juro, I may be interested in joining the group to Acklins. Can you please fill me in on the details , dates , cost, number of people in group etc.

Dates are flexible but usually do at least one of the trips later in winter - Feb / Mar time frame. I will let our host and sponsor reply with quotes.

He can accommodate 10 people in style. Here is a thread with some pics from earlier this year...

Juro. Have you ever considered early April. Still cold enough here to want to scoot to warmer climes and less chance of a cold front.

I am typically going to be focused on pacific northwest steelhead by April, although the past couple of years that has not happened - which makes me even more motivated to do it this year!

But that should not stop anyone else. Acklins is far enough out/south such that mid-late Feb / March is not nearly as susceptible to cold fronts like her northern sisters in the archipelago.

Even after an anomaly we had great fishing last trip while people at Nassau complained that they were shut out on other islands by the cold.

But that should not stop anyone from putting an April trip together without me!
