Tarpon Caye Lodge guides know that your best shot at a Permit will be during the four hour period surrounding a high tide, i.e. as the water comes on to the flat, peaks, and then recedes. We will plan your fishing day around these peak windows of opportunity. If high tide is at 6:00 am, you can set your clock for 5:00, grab a cup of coffee and a muffin, jump in the boat with your guide, (who is also staying at the lodge) and be on a flat in five minutes for the best opportunity on a permit! This is an approach to fishing that is unique to Tarpon Caye lodge. Most operations will have the guide pick you up at a set time, and return you at a set time, regardless of what is happening with the tides. This is fishing the clock and can be very hit or miss. At Tarpon Caye it is not uncommon for our guests to catch their first Permit before our competition has even fueled up their boats! Then when the tide goes out it is back to the lodge for a delicious brunch, a siesta on your private deck hammock (or more fishing if you're so inclined), then when the tide returns you are back to the boat, often fishing while enjoying a beautiful Belizean sunset!!

Target Fish: Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish


Campeche Tarpon. The Yucatan Peninsula extends like a thumb into the ocean. The Cancun(east) side of the peninsula is on the Caribbean Ocean with its extensive network of large bays and sandy beaches. Its flats are home to bonefish, permit, snook and tarpon. The Campeche (west) side of the peninsula is on the Gulf of Mexico with extensive mangrove forests, creeks and small lakes. The predominant gamefish here is the baby tarpon. A species of small snook is present.
The term “baby” tarpon, although not especially accurate, differentiates these tarpon from the big brutes with which we normally associate the name tarpon. It is convenient to think of any tarpon under about 40 pounds as being a “baby tarpon” while those larger than 40 pounds as being a tarpon. The baby tarpon in the Campeche area range from about 5 to 20 pounds.
Except immediately following major storms, the Gulf of Mexico in the Campeche area is shallow and crystal clear. With few exceptions, that means most of the baby tarpon fishing is sight-fishing. The exceptions are fishing in the dark, casting into heavily shaded areas of the mangroves or fishing deep rivers during low tide. In most instances you will see the fish before you cast, and it isn’t uncommon to watch the tarpon inhale your fly. Controlling your reactions while observing a fish swim to your fly was a real challenge for me.
The Campeche Tarpon boats are the best in the region, specially suited for fly fishing and for navigating shallow waters. The comfort that they provide guarantees that at the end of the day of fishing, you and your lower back will be ready to start again the next day. Our guides are individually selected and native to the region. They are not only respectable people, but also experienced fly fishermen, which gives them the precise vision needed to be able to position the boats for perfect casting. They will recommend the best fly depending on the time of day and the climate conditions. They expertly read the tides, which is of utmost importance in shallow water fishing. They know fly fishing english language and are personally trained by Alejandro.

Target Fish: Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish


Pesca Maya lodge started operations in 1996 with our Fishing Lodge in Ascension Bay Quintana Roo Mexico outfitting anglers to catch bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook. through the years we gained reputation among fishermen all over the world, which not only made our anglers come back year after year, but also bring their friends and families too. Now Pesca Maya offers you services for fishing and lodging all over the Yucatan peninsula. We take you where the action is: wether you want to catch giant tarpon, sailfish, blue or white marlin or dorado / mahi-mahi. In Ascencion Bay there are hundreds of square miles of crystal clear flats where it’s common to see bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and jacks or barracuda in the same day, all year round! Sight fishing for bonefish in skinny water, wading over a white sand bottom, look for permit in shallow flats just two or three feet deep or fish from the boat in a mangroove lagoon where tarpon are rolling. You will find the consistency of bonefishing, the exitement of fishing for tarpon, the thrilling challenge of fishing for permit, the nice surprice of jack crevalle or fishing for snook and the fierce strike of “cudas” on a clear flat. Fishing for permit in the so-called “permit Mekka” of the Caribbean is the ultimate dream of the avid saltwater angler. Read more on Ascension Bay fishing in the US fishing magazine “Saltwater Sportsman”, in American Angler. We can go south and be in Ascension Bay in 15 minutes, or if the wind blows too hard, we can go north to Boca Paila and find flats surrounded by mangroves that help to protect. Both places are well known for its bonefish, permit, tarpon or snook and barracuda abundance. Wind protection is one of the great advantages of this area. Unlike Bahamas , here we can fish for bonefish 365 days of the year. Of course in Tulum and all the Yucatan Peninsula we get very windy days, from South East, East and North, but we can always find protected flats or lagoons where we can see and cast at bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, jacks, barracudas, Spanish mackerels, and other species. You certainly have to bring tackle for all these species and at least 3 rods to be ready anytime. After reservation we will send you complete tackle list.
