There’s rarely a day goes by when I’m not asked, “When is the best time to fish…” insert favorite Caribbean destination here.

The answer is sometimes a tough one to give, especially when the answer is unexpected for the inquiring angler. For instance, you might often hear me answer this by saying, “Ascension Bay? I would go in August.” The normal response is, “August? Isn’t it hot?”

The answer is definitely yes, but when this same question is poised to many of the guides in this region you’ll find them to respond similarly. With one of the only negatives being that often temps are 3 – 4 degrees hotter than the spring, for the most part the benefits of the summer season greatly outweigh the negatives. Bookings in the Caribbean from June – September can often enjoy the following benefits:

  1. With many anglers choosing to avoid the summer heat or simply too busy to get away in the summer, the availability at most operations is very good.
  2. Consistently warm conditions. tropical rains, and unpressured flats keep fish very happy.
  3. Summer rates provide discounts at many operations.
  4. The most experienced guides that normally are booked or requested in well in advance and often available in the summer.
  5. Summer bookings avoid any possibility of a cold front that may affect fishing.

With regard to the heat, many operations will alter their fishing schedule to get you on the water early to avoid the mid-day heat. Give Dylan a call at 800-552-2729 to discuss any of the below discounts or the summer time season in the Caribbean.
