Casa and Playa Blanca Fishing Report Nov. 8-15

The most idyllic weather week of the season so far, and the fishing reflected that. Every day with just a hint of a breeze, sunshine, little to no cloud cover. The ocean calmed to the point where multiple schools of tarpon could be found out in front of Casa Blanca within casting range, permit teaming […]

Casa and Playa Fishing Report Nov. 1-8

One of our favorite weeks, the annual Couple’s trip hosted by Jackson Streit out of Mountain Angler from Breckenridge Colorado. Some stout winds out the Northeast to start this week, which combined with grey skies to make permit fishing extra challenging, though that didn’t stop angler Terry E. from catching a solid fish on her […]

Despite some impressive visits from the Mayan Rain God ‘Chac’ this week, the fishing was quite productive, with 20 permit caught  between both lodges, plenty of bones, tarpon and snook as well.

A pretty special week overall, with many records set. Veteran permit hunter Joe Dudra brought home his 150th Casa Blanca permit, a beauty of a fish. Eleven year old angling prodigy Johnny Duty managed a Grand Slam and a Super Grand Slam, certainly a lodge record and possibly a world record. A close second, his […]

Some new faces this year to complement a group that has been coming for 20 years. A bit of a rough weather week with scattered showers and stout winds, but memories were still made. Lots of chances at permit, quite a few of them tailing, with one brought home to make for a Grand Slam, […]

One of the biggest success stories was young angler Reid M. on a father and son trip, who caught not only his first permit but also managed a grand slam in Ascension Bay with guide David. Safe to […]

A good week overall. Fairly stout winds out of the east made for challenging conditions, but anglers rallied. Fly Water Travel’s Dylan Rose managed two nice permit, among them his first. Total permit tally for the week, 7. Fishing for other species was consistent. The big bones are back in their old haunts, and tarpon […]
