On South Andros, our guides often refer to big bonefish as ‘blackbacks.’ Why? Because big bonefish, like the double digit critters we all dream about, often appear much darker in the water than smaller bonefish. Sort of like this beauty caught recently by Andros South guest, Dennis Poulin. Nice work, Dennis! More From South Andros Bahamian […]

We really like throwing flies to barracuda at Andros South. They’re big, aggressive, and amazingly fast. They also have a mouth full of razor sharp teeth, which we think just adds to the excitement.
