Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge

Ascension Bay Bonefish Club has announced a new partnership with Grand Slam Fishing Lodge. oth ABBC and Grand Slam Fishing Lodge have operated in Punta Allen, Mexico. After 30 years of independent operations, ABBC has now joined forces with Grand Slam for the 2016 season. The guides, boats and equipment from ABBC will now operate out of the beautiful lodge facilities of Grand Slam Fishing Lodge
Although stalking cruising permit and tailing bonefish is the primary quarry, the variety of fish in the bay year-round provides plenty of fishing challenges. You’ll find rolling tarpon in the lagoons, making this one of the few places in the world where a Grand Slam is possible. Hook a snook in the same day for a Super Slam and then wind down at the luxurious Grand Slam Fishing Lodge. Reef and offshore fishing are thrilling, too.
There are crystal clear flats with one to two feet of water that a lot of smaller bonefish call home, plus three-to four-foot-deep flats where bigger bonefish and permit roam. There are also restricted channels for longer fights since the fish can’t run and tire out, deep holes for lurking monsters, protected areas when the wind kicks up, and a 70-mile reef for migrating game fish. All fishing in the biosphere is catch-and-release.
