Item Description

LOWERED OPENING BID!

This superb destination auction item is provided by Deneki Outdoors for two people for 7 nights/6 full days of fishing to South Andros Island in the Bahamas.

Andros South is a lodge in the Bahamas focused on providing the finest bonefishing in the world. With South Andros Island’s endless, diverse flats and creeks, the opportunities here are boundless.

Location, location, location. When it comes to bonefish, no amount of preparation, equipment, or planning can replace the natural bounty that the productive, unexploited bonefishing location of Andros South delivers.

South Andros Island is widely known as the Bonefishing Capital of the World.  You want to fish to giant schools of hungry bonefish? No problem. Have your sights set on casting to large tailing bones? We can make it happen.

Regardless of your experience level, it is our goal to make every trip to Andros South a trip of a lifetime. For anglers from novice to expert, our expert staff and extremely diverse fishery allow you to experience a trip that exceeds your expectations.

Do you want to fish to giant schools of hungry bonefish? No problem. Have your sights set on casting to large tailing bones? We can make it happen. Wade sparkling white sand flats, pole remote mangrove creeks, hike to hidden inland lakes, discover remote cays, explore expansive ocean flats? It’s all right here.

At Andros South, our guide staff possesses the knowledge of the flats and the skills necessary to provide you with the bonefishing experience of a lifetime.
 
Expect to fish to schools of bonefish that average 2 to 4 pounds, with larger fish often swimming with the school. You will also have many shots at tailing and cruising bonefish ranging from 5 to 10 pounds plus. These opportunities will come while wading hard sand and marl flats or being poled along in one of our fully equipped flats skiffs. We’re not big on keeping score, but expect some days where you lose count of the number of bones you hook and land.
 
Most of your encounters with bonefish will be on extensive shallow flats or winding mangrove creeks in 1 to 2 feet of water. The fish will often be moving quickly on the tide and grubbing as they go looking for shrimp, crabs, worms, shellfish, baitfish and small invertebrates. A bonefish’s mouth, unlike that of most other gamefish, is located underneath the head, enabling the fish to easily root around the bottom for food. While you will often see (and cast to) larger schools of relatively easy-to-catch fish, the bruisers will often be traveling in singles or pairs and they offer some of our more challenging fishing.

The following items are included in this auction package:

* Guided fishing with two anglers per boat
* Single-occupancy lodging
* All meals including alcohol
* Loaner fly and spinning tackle
* Terminal tackle and flies
* Transfers between the Congo Town airport on South Andros and our lodge

Special Instructions

If you’re looking for white linen tablecloths, you should look elsewhere. If you’re looking for clean, comfortable accommodations, outstanding service, and the finest bonefishing in the world, you’ve come to the right place.

Our grounds are well-maintained and filled with coconut palms and a variety of other native plants. Our beach is the perfect place to practice your casting in preparation for your next day of fishing.
 
To the south of us are the cottages and homes of some local families as well as a few Spanish fishermen. They are warm friendly folks and you’ll find them to be a wonderful addition to your experience.
 
An evening walk over to the public dock north of the property can be worth your while. This is where the locals head off for a day at sea and return in the evening to clean their catch. Remember to bring your rod, as this is also a great place to fish at night for snapper, barracuda or the occasional shark.
 
The lodge is situated on a beautiful white sand beach, taking advantage of the warm trade winds of the Bahamas. Take a relaxing swim each evening, or maybe a walk or a run. You may even want to wade in with your fly rod and hone your casting while gazing out at azure blue water. There are also hungry barracuda and the occasional large bonefish cruising along the white sand. If you find yourself in need of a longer beach to run on, you can head just north of the marina/public dock and find yourself on a white sand beach that stretches as far as you can see.
 
Our rooms are clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned. Each has its own bathroom, which awaits you with a warm relaxing shower at the end of your fishing day. Did we mention each guest gets his own room? Yes, it is true! No listening to your “good buddy” snore all night. Each room has tile floors and is furnished with comfortable beds and modern dressers and nightstands.
 
Our dining room is welcoming and laid back. It is perfect to enjoy cocktails, great meals and conversation with friends, both new and old. On the dining front, boy, do we have seafood! Many other great dishes too, like jerk chicken and ribs. During your stay you will be treated to lots of fresh local seafood. From fresh snapper and grouper, to lobster and conch, this is fresh fish at its finest.
 
We’re happy to take special requests for food – if you’ve got dietary requirements, or just a personal preference, let us know and we’ll and we’ll cook something up just for you.
 
You will enjoy a variety of dishes, with an emphasis on traditional Bahamian cooking. The main dish is always complimented with hearty side dishes and topped off with a variety of truly sinful desserts. You definitely won’t go hungry here. Homemade key lime pie, anyone?
 
Located right on the beach is our tiki bar that we affectionately call "The Slack Tide." This is a favorite spot to enjoy the beach, the breeze and drinks and appetizers at the end of your fishing day.

The winning bidder will be responsible for communicating and making all arrangements with Deneki Outdoors. Our 2011-2012 season runs from October 15th, 2011 to June 2nd, 2012.  If you’re interested in booking on specific dates you’ll want to contact us well in advance.
