Join us March 17-24 for our hosted trip to The Palometa Club!
Earlier this fall, we visited perhaps the best destination in the Caribbean for permit, and the waters of Ascension Bay didn't disappoint. Over the course of a week, our group caught several of the elusive flats fish based out of The Palometa Club in beautiful Punta Allen. It was so good, we're going back, and you could come with us.
George Costa of TCO Fly Shop in Pennsylvania is our host for a March 17-24 trip to the tropics, and the $4,500 double-occupancy rate remains one of the best saltwater fly fishing deals out there, especially when you factor in the quality of the permit fishing. George is a seasoned angler and a gregarious host. You'll enjoy chasing bonefish, permit, tarpon and snook on this weeklong adventure with him, and you'll get to enjoy the legendary hospitality of The Palometa Club's experienced staff. Additionally, the club's guides are among the best in the business — if there are permit around, they'll find them. The rest? Well, that's up to you!
Ascension Bay is on the Caribbean side of southern Mexico, situated along the Yucatan Peninsula. You'll fly into Cancun, meet your shuttle and then ride with your fishing buddies south through the throngs of tourists hustling to the beaches of Playa del Carmen, Akumal and Tulum. And then you'll leave all that madness behind when you board a skiff at Boca Paila and motor south across the emerald-green waters of the bay to remote Punta Allen and the perfectly situated lodge that faces the clear Caribbean.
The Palometa Club has been recently updated, and it features a wonderful outdoor bar and patio area, cozy indoor gathering spaces, well-appointed rooms and big, private bathrooms. But the real appeal, of course, is the fishing. Ascension Bay is a fish factory for trophy permit and big and plentiful bonefish, as well as tarpon, snook and barracuda. Anglers will have their choice of species to pursue every morning when they meet their guides.
And, if it all falls into place, you might be among the lucky few in the fly-fishing community to hoist that permit flag into the tropical breeze at the end of a great day spent on the water. If you're interested in joining George in March — one of the best times of the year for big permit on the flats — just let us know, and we'll get you squared away.
Opportunities like this don't come around very often. Here's your chance. Don't miss it!
