Casa Blanca Fly Fishing Lodge, Mexico
Flats fly fishing in Ascension Bay, Mexico
Casa Blanca Fly Fishing Lodge, Mexico offers exceptional fly fishing with outstanding flats fishing in Ascension Bay. It’s a superb destination to cast your line for bonefish, permit and tarpon.
Grand Slam Opportunities
The bonefishing is testing among the mangrove roots and the sand flats. Their size is a little larger than the rest of the Yucatan due to the proximity of the ocean reef. The permit fishing at Casa Blanca may be the very best in the world. As many as 56 permit have been caught on the fly in a single week.
Another week, guests boated ten Grand Slams (permit, bonefish and tarpon all in one day). The majority of tarpon are natives that remain in the area throughout the year. Ascension Bay and Espirito Bay’s tarpon should be considered an added bonus since the numbers found in these waters are fairly limited. There are plenty to cast to in order to complete a Slam, but you should not consider Casa Blanca or Playa Blanca primarily as a tarpon destination.
Every Room Has a View
The Casa Blanca Lodge sits on a rocky point known to the locals as Punta Pajaros. The actual lodge was the former staff quarters for coco plantation workers. Every room has a view and layouts differ to accommodate various needs.
All the comforts of home await. Mahogany shutters open toward spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, tiled rooms have air conditioning and spacious baths. The main lodge features a fully stocked bar, an imaginative menu, and friends, old and new, swapping stories about the day’s fishing. The house specialty is fresh seafood, lobster, snapper or conch, caught from the nearby palancar reef. Chayote, jicama, habaneros, the native fruits and vegetables are presented to please your eye as well as your palate.
The lodge also boasts a 100 yard concrete pier and under lights at night you will find cruising tarpon and permit here. In fact, some of the best fishing happens right off the pier.
“We had a fantastic trip! Playa Blanca was beautiful, the accommodation spacious and comfortable, the staff wonderfully friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. My wife had a thoroughly relaxing time and the fishing was brilliant.” M.A. – London
Casa Blanca is located on an island paradise in the middle of Ascension Bay on the Yucatan Peninsula. The area surrounding Casa Blanca is wild, virtually uninhabited and extraordinarily beautiful. There are miles of shallow bays, secluded mangrove-rimmed lagoons, white sand beaches, and dense coastal jungle. The lodge is reached via a 45 minute charter flight from Cancun and a short onward boat trip.
