FISH BEYOND THE HORIZON

 

an experience to remember

The destination fly fishing selections we offer are a result of our own experiences. Not only have we been on these excursions, but we can also help guide you or your group travel as a ReelFly hosted adventure. For 2018/2019 we will be offering two destination trips. The first is a journey to Ascension Bay, Mexico. Guests will stay at the Grand Slam Lodge located just north of the little town of Punta Allen.

description

For avid fly fishermen, it doesn’t get any better than the GrandSlam Fishing Lodge in Ascension Bay, Mexico. Just an hour’s drive south of Tulum, is a pristine fishery in the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve. It hosts some of the biggest permit in the world and enormous schools of bonefish. With tarpon and snook on hand, it’s one of the world’s best places to go for a Grand Slam or Super Slam. The lodge provides a private guide for each angler. Fly fisherman will find the expansive flats of Ascension Bay a thrill. You can try reef and offshore sports fishing too. Off the water, live the luxurious life in one of 12 beachfront villa rooms, complete with air conditioning, king-sized beds, satellite television, wrap-around deck and locking rod racks. After a day on the bay, cool off in the pool or have drinks delivered to you at your Bali beach bed. Dine on fresh-caught lobster and fish for dinner, then enjoy an aged rum and a Cuban cigar while swapping fishing stories. The accommodations are plush, the service is excellent, the food is spectacular, and the margaritas solve any problems you may think you have!

The fishing is done out of 23-ft. panga boats which are stable in the shallow flats, have a wide casting area on the flat bow, and a poling platform at the back for sighting fish. The permit in Ascension Bay are among the largest in the world ranging from 16lb to 30lb. The bonefish range from 2lb to 8lb which put up a tough fight, often changing speed and direction. Bonefish make up for their size with volume – the schools in this area are large, sometimes up to 100 fish. Additionally there are young tarpon in the bay year-round in the 5lb to 30lb range. You'll find schools of fish rolling in the cool holes of the lagoons and mangroves aggressively looking to eat. Large migratory tarpon up to 70lb or 80lbs are in the bay during the late spring and summer.
