MEXICO FISHING TRIPS
The issue of taking fishing equipment into Mexico as carry-on luggage has been questionable for a few years. It now appears that they are enforcing it at most airports. We are advising our clients not to carry on rods, reels, lines, etc., when flying to Mexico.

The brackish waters of Los Petenes are perfect for baby tarpon, snook, and barracuda. Excellent numbers of acrobatic baby tarpon. You'll stay at the Ocean View Hotel in historic Campeche. Join Brad Staples' Hosted Weeks in 2022.
Ascension Bay offers miles of coastline, shallow flats, and lagoon systems for the fly angler to explore. Good flats fishing is just minutes from the Lodge. The deluxe beachfront Lodge is open year-round with peak fishing from March through June.
Sadly, Holbox Island Fly Fishing Lodge closed in 2021. Ascension Bay is world-renowned for its seemingly endless saltwater flats. Target permit, bonefish, and tarpon. Take a 30-minute boat ride to Holbox Island, then travel by golf cart to your beachfront lodge.
Lake Baccarac was stocked in 1978 with Florida strain largemouth bass and is the number one lake in Mexico for ten-pound-plus bass. A 19.10-pound largemouth bass was landed here, setting the Central American record. The Lodge overlooks the lake.
Lake El Salto is a 24,000-acre reservoir (at full pool) in the foothills of the Sierra Madres, less than 90 minutes from Mazatlán. It’s not uncommon to catch 30 to 60 largemouth bass in an afternoon, many averaging between four and seven pounds. Stay at Club El Salto.
Lake Picachos is Mexico’s newest and hottest largemouth bass lake, thirty miles east of Mazatlán. The Lake is very brushy with heavy cover and a spinnerbait angler’s paradise. The Lodge is open year-round, and each angler has their own bedroom with a full-size bed.
Scorpion Atoll, the largest reef in the Southern Gulf of Mexico, lies about 70 miles off the north coast of Yucatán. The Atoll is a healthy habitat for above-average size permit and bonefish. You'll stay on a 42-foot sedan bridge liveaboard with up to four anglers and crew.
"Scorpion Atoll is an amazing place. It is one of those destinations that you need to experience before it gets popular. We all felt that this trip to Scorpion Atoll was the BEST Bonefishing trip that any of us have ever experienced."
