Looking for a great tropical escape for this winter? La Pescadroa is a great place to spend a week in January or February. I was just checking flights during those months and had to share to try to help with ideas to beat the Winter Blues. There are some amazingly cheap flights, Delta from Dulles, Delta from Richmond, American from Dulles, American from Richmond. If you’d like to spend a week this winter with your toes in the sand and a fish on the end of your line? It’s only a phone call or email away.
La Pescadora, located just south of the small fishing village of Punta Allen on the Yucatan Peninsula, is one of the best fishing focused lodges in the Caribbean and not to mention one of the best values in destination travel fly fishing. With direct access to the famed fisheries of Ascension Bay and the surrounding lagoons just a few minute boat ride from the lodge. La Pescadora offers guided fishing on some of the best saltwater sportfish habitat in the world.
Situated on a beautiful beach, your room is only steps from the boats and a turtle grass flat that holds bonefish and permit. The lodge features a beautiful open floor plan with exposed exotic hardwoods and an intimate feel. Each of the four cabanas, two on each side of the main lodge sleep two, are well appointed and air conditioned.
Upon arrival you will receive a warm welcome by the lodge staff with hors d’oeuvres and a tropical beverage. After settling in you will meet your guides that will help you setup your rods, reels, leaders, and go over your fly selection to ensure you are ready for the following morning and week. 7wts for bonefish, 9wts for permit and snook, and 10-12wts for tarpon are the weights of choice.
La Pescadora uses 24 foot pangas staffed with two guides. Pangas are the perfect boat for this part of the world. Providing plenty of room, a smooth and dry ride if conditions get choppy and a stable casting platform. While your head guide is on the poling platform scanning for nervous water/fish your second/Jr guide will help ensure you are ready when the opportunity presents its self.
Any given day the flats and lagoons could hold a SUPER grand slam (bonefish, permit, tarpon & snook). Even though this feat can be difficult to accomplish, Ascension Bay is one of the best places in the world to achieve it. The various species of fish can be caught in abundance and large sizes. In particular, the permit fishing at La Pescadora can be sensational with many fish caught in the upper teens to 20+ pound range and tarpon well over 100 pounds.
As you can tell from the number of people viewing this trip and both of our hosted trips full, this is one of our most popular. If you’d like to experience this amazing lodge and location, give us a call. (434) 977-6882.
