Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge

Ascension Bay is one of the most pristine fisheries in the hemisphere and is part of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Grand Slam Fishing:

Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge

At Ascension Bay, there are miles of coastline, shallow flats and lagoon systems for the fly angler to explore. Good flats fishing is just minutes from the Lodge; the best spots are a 20-to 45-minute boat ride. Target permit and bonefish with a variety of year-round species. You’ll find rolling tarpon in the lagoons, making this one of the few places in the world where a Grand Slam is possible. Hook a snook on the same day for a Super Slam and then wind down at Grand Slam Fishing Lodge, a five-star lodge. Reef and offshore fishing are also available.
There are crystal clear flats with one to two feet of water that a lot of smaller bonefish call home, plus three-to four-foot-deep flats where bigger bonefish and permit roam. There are also restricted channels for longer fights since the fish can’t run and tire out, deep holes for lurking monsters, protected areas when the wind kicks up, and a 70-mile reef for migrating game fish. All fishing in the biosphere is catch-and-release. Trips to Boca Paila Lagoon can be made at no added charge.
