Acklins Island Outback Lodge
Located on the northern end of Acklins near Lovely Bay, Fedel's Outback Lodge is the perfect place for hardcore anglers who want to experience the great wading for bones that Acklins offers. Fedel's offers both fully guided and DIY packages, as well as a mixture of both during your stay
Acklins Island is one of the most remote, beautiful and pristine areas left in the Bahamas. There are miles of creeks and flats which offer some of the best bonefishing in the Islands. Bonefish on Acklins love knee to ankle-deep water and tail readily on the flats and in the vast creek systems which offer incredible wade fishing opportunities.
Fedel, the head guide and an Acklins Island native, has been fishing the waters around Acklins since he was 12 and still loves every minute of it. Fedel is an accomplished fly angler and an outstanding guide who has been guiding the flats of Acklins for 18 years. Anyone who has had the pleasure to fish with Fedel will tell you he is a knowledgeable, patient guide who is passionate about the sport. When not guiding the flats of Acklins, Fedel spends his off season in New Mexico with his wife Erika.
The lodge, which is a short walk from a beach where bonefish cruise by regularly, accommodates up to 6 guests, two per room. All rooms have comfortable beds, AC, satellite TV, microwave, fridge, wireless internet and a full bathroom. Water in the lodge is filtered by a reverse osmosis system which ensures safe drinking water and salt-free showers. Cell phone networks are available on the island, and a land line phone with a low cost code option is available at the house as well. The lodge has a large open air patio, as well as close access to a beautiful ocean side beach.
The dinner menu is made up of fresh locally caught seafood such as conch, fish and lobster, as well as chicken, with traditional Bahamian fixings. Lunch is packed to take on the water, and includes a sandwich, fruit, chips and snacks. Traditional american breakfasts are served.
