Type of fishing

Ascension Bay and Bocapaila lagoons are world famous flats to fish for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and barracuda and Pesca Maya has professional guides who know them like the back of their hands.

Most of the flats are crystal clear and ideal for wading and sight fishing for bonefish and permit along hard sand and turtle grass areas. If you are specifically targeting permit or tarpon, you will mostly be fishing over soft bottoms or in waters too deep to wade and most of the fishing in these areas is done by boat.

Rain and weather conditions in general may affect the water’s quality and visibility, but they mostly pass quickly with a change of weather or wind direction. Most fishing areas in the Yucatan experience a constant breeze, but wind free days are possible and it is normal for the winds to be calm in the mornings and pick up in the afternoon or evening.

We recommend you practice your casting both into and across the wind prior to your trip, and are able to arrange instruction with one of the Farlows Travel team if required.
