Espiritu Santo Bay is one of saltwater fly fishing’s most spectacular frontiers. Espirtiu Santo Bay is remote, lying just south of the famed Ascension Bay on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Loaded with bonefish, permit and tarpon, this fishery sees much less pressure than Ascension. Some other species anglers might try their skill with are snook, jacks, snapper, triggerfish and BIG barracuda. Playa Blanca Lodge and Espiritu Santo Bay Lodge are our preferred destinations to experience Espiritu Santo Bay and there are currently rare opportunities to fish with both outfits in 2019.
Playa Blanca Lodge
Located on a ten mile long white sand beach on a small private island in the heart of the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve just south of Ascension Bay Mexico, Playa Blanca is uniquely situated to access the fertile and seldom fished waters of the Bahia Del Espiritu Santo. The fishery centers on sight fly fishing for bonefish, permit, and juvenile tarpon but snook, snapper, jacks and barracuda are also present. Much of the fly fishing is done from 16 ft Dolphin Skiffs but wade fishing is also common. Catch and release fly fishing is practiced for all of the primary species. Playa Blanca also offers numerous activities for non-anglers including guided snorkeling, sea kayaking, bird watching, Mayan ruins, bicycling and windsurfing.

The fishery centers on sight fly fishing for bonefish, permit, snook, and juvenile tarpon, making it one of the top destinations in the world for a super grand slam!
