Bahamas Bonefish

Looking to do some fishing later this month. Can anyone refer a guide service to me? I appreciate all advice. I'll be staying at the Atlantis and will travel to other islands in the area.

Which Island is the Atlantis located?
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you

New Providence.

Well I've been ogling the southside flats which are lame in comparison to Andros or other islands but for a $5 taxi ride you should find some fish on tide changes I would think.

My first choice would be Acklins just because I have fallen deeply in love it that place along with 7 other clavers... but Andros is closer and has more flights and is a mecca for the angling traveler looking for a guided trip.

Exuma has the charm of Peace and Plenty and some huge bones to boot, if you had three days I'd do barraterre one day, the airport flat one day, and the south end around Crab Cay the last or something to that effect.

Abaco has a great reputation for big bones and is best fished with a guide, as is Long Island's Deadmans Cay where the best flats are off the shoreline.

If you had one island hop from Nassau and want a guided trip Andros is your best choice. Personally I would take the chance to extend my newfound love affair with Acklins and spend a few days there, but Andros seems best for what you seek.

It's hard to go wrong in the Bahamas for bonefish!

Look into an early-morning flight to Andros and hook up with Bradley Mackey, aka 'Bonefish Bradley'. He is probably the most skilled and hard-working guide on Andros. He can meet and drop you off you at the airport

If you've bonefished before, there are some spectacular flats within walking distance of Andros (Fresh Creek) airport. P.m. me for details, but I hesitate to suggest this if you are new to bonefishing, as it will likely end up frustrating.

Juro, have you actually BEEN on those southside flats???
