Ascension Bay World Record Permit Fishing
As far as fishing lodges go, Casa Blanca Lodge Yucatan is definitely first class. The seaside rooms are large and well appointed. There is an abundance of staff. The food is an excellent combination of Mexican, Mayan, and American dishes. The service is great. The water is drinkable, as it comes from a reverse osmosis system. We rate Casa Blanca Lodge Yucatan as one of the top lodges in the Caribbean.
The lodge has a fleet of new custom designed Dolphin Super Skiffs. All the boats are built for flats fishing and are rigged with poling platform, fiberglass push pole, ample rod and dry storage, and comfortable deck mounted seats. Each captain has a radio for communication.
There are several major advantage of Dolphins Skiffs over Mexican built pangas. The Dolphins are quieter when poling and they are more comfortable under-way. Also, they are nicer to fish out of, and they allow you access very shallow water where the larger boats can not go. Ideal areas for Ascension Bay World Record Permit Fishing.
Casa Blanca Lodge Yucatan accesses one of the finest saltwater flats’ fisheries in the world. Ascension Bay has a rare combination of environmental ingredients which create the ideal foundations for an abundance of wildlife.
The flats of Ascension Bay are surrounded by a series of small freshwater springs and creeks which feed the brackish mangrove estuaries. These areas are used as feeding grounds for flats and reef species.
Along the coast, a complex chain of submerged islands and little cays provide the ideal habitat for a shallow-water coral ecosystem. The coral heads absorb the brunt of the pounding waves, which creates a tranquil setting in the flats, even if the outside ocean is rough.
The Casa Blanca Lodge Yucatan is ideally situated on the south side of the bay. This enables you to reach even the most remote areas of the bay and avoid the daily haul across open waters to the best fishing areas, including Tres Maris and Esperanza. There is an area called “Laguna Santa Rosa,” which is located on the south side of the bay and is a good place to fish, especially if it becomes too windy elsewhere.
