In 2009, after years of planning and construction, well-known Andros guide, Captain Andy Smith, opened one of the most beautiful, most exclusive small lodge operations in all of the Bahamas. Impressively well-situated on its private island in a very remote location in the “North Bight” of Andros, the Broad Shad Cay consists of two bedrooms, the main dining room and lounge, and a wrap-around deck offering unbeatable views of the surrounding waters. This one-of-a-kind destination is situated equidistant between the east and west coasts of Andros. Since the tides come from both coasts, this location allows anglers to fish optimum tides throughout the day with minimal running time in a boat. Small and exclusive, Broad Shad offers a great location, first-rate accommodations, and the opportunity to learn the subtler aspects of flats fishing from Andy Smith and his expert team of guides. Capacity is limited to four guests per week.

Lodging Details
A boat transfer is the only way to access the lodge. There are no other lodges or fishing operations (or any buildings for that matter) within 20 miles of Broad Shad Lodge (except Andy’s father’s old lodge, the historic and now-closed Bang Bang Club). If you’re looking to get away from it all in a quiet, isolated setting with a first-rate fishing program, then Andy Smith’s secluded setting is hard to beat.

The lodge was completed in Summer 2009. Andy and his brother Benry built the structures on the island themselves, and the craftsmanship is meticulous. The beautiful coral rock masonry that characterizes the exterior of the lodge is impressive and aesthetically distinct. Two spacious bedrooms are well-decorated with all-new furniture. Each room features air conditioning, showers with plenty of hot water, and great views out every window. The deck is the ideal gathering place for post-fishing beverages and provides a great place to relax each evening. It overlooks the North Bight, where the sunsets are nothing short of spectacular. The small flats in front of the lodge are perfect for wade fishing and stalking evening tailers. The main dining and sitting room is adjacent to the guest rooms and deck. This common area features a satellite TV, maps, comfortable couches and chairs.

Food and Beverages
Bahamian-style meals are served at Broad Shad Lodge and include fresh, local seafood that is 100% prepared and cooked to your liking. All meals can be altered, and specialty foods can be imported to satisfy your tastes. The all-inclusive bar is well-stocked with top-shelf spirits, beers and a variety of local rums. Andy’s wife, Sharon, is the lodge manager and is always available to assist you during your stay at Broad Shad Cay.

Typical Length of Stay
Trips and packages of any length can be arranged. All trips are entirely customized. Call Yellow Dog for details.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Broad Shad Cay is a fishing-focused lodge that sits on a small, remote island with nothing around it but beautiful scenery and healthy flats. The second-best reason to come to Broad Shad Cay, right behind the great fishing, is to experience the Bahamas in complete privacy at its natural, unspoiled best. The lodge has the entire cay to itself and when there, you’ll feel like you have all of Andros to yourself. Free of roads or vehicles, Broad Shad, boasts a network of manmade trails, eco-friendly scenery, and a giant hardwood deck facing the sunset. Sit back and relax, and let nature do the rest.

Internet / Communications
Internet access is not available at the lodge. Some U.S. cell phones may work throughout the Bahamas depending on your service plan. However, cell phones will not work at Broad Shad.
