Mangrove Cay Club

Bahamas >> Andros Island >> Mangrove Cay
Fishing and Species
Andros is known for amazing bonefishing with a vast amount of habitat. The fishing ranges from a maze of creeks and interior flats to the seemingly infinite flats of the south end. There are large fish and there can be good numbers as well. Fishing is a mix of wading and fishing out of the boat. The guides can lean toward what approach you prefer, depending on the tides and type of flats. They use well-powered Dolphin skiffs.

Andros Island is the largest of The Bahamas’ islands and is mostly uninhabited and unspoiled, protected from development by its shallow water shorelines and lack of natural harbors. It has been called the “Bonefish capital of the Bahamas and maybe of the world”. Mangrove Cay is an island on the east coast of Andros, easily accessed by a short flight from Nassau, Miami or Fort Lauderdale. They fish the north, middle and south bights and the wild west side of Andros. They have all seasoned, licensed captains and real flats skiffs to cover this broad range of waters. The Andros bonefishing is legendary for good reason. The flats and creeks are very prolific and offer some big fish that you may mistake for a barracuda.

Each of the four cottages at the Club is divided into two suites, separated by a thick soundproof wall. All are a short walk on a sand path from the main lodge. The suites have high cypress ceilings and ceiling fans, an air-conditioned bedroom, a sitting room, an oversized bathroom and a private porch overlooking Middle Bight. They accommodate a maximum of 16 guests, a comfortable number to ensure high quality service and personal attention.

On the outside wall of each suite is a rod rack that holds four rods and a convenient freshwater hose for rinsing off rods, reels and other equipment. Both outside and inside the entrance are hooks for wet clothes and gear.

The sitting room is furnished with a sofa and chair and some small tables, providing space for laying out tackle and equipment.

Iyke has been the chef since Mangrove Cay began operation ten years ago. Most of their dinner menus are based on fresh local seafood. Fishermen pull up at the dock with their catch to allow Iyke to make his selections. Lobster, grouper, snapper and conch all make regular appearances. They do a lot of healthy cooking by limiting fried foods, serving most seafood grilled or poached and using only fresh fruits and vegetables. This will allow you to save room for the indulgent deserts.
