Grand Slam & Campeche , Mexico
May 8-18, 2018
There are many places in the world to fish in saltwater, and most of them are pretty exciting. Over the years we've spent lots of time in Mexico and we love it as much now as when we were just starting out.
While most of our early fishing took place on the Yucatan Peninsula fishing the flats for bonefish and permit, a few years back we discovered Campeche for baby tarpon and we have to say that it's hard to get it out of our heads. Part of the reason is simply that we don't want to! So, we have combined the best of both worlds. We'll start out with 4 days fishing at the lovely Grand Slam Lodge, at the very end of the road (and we mean that literally) in Punta Allen. This fairly new lodge features accommodations like you've never seen at a Mexican fishing lodge! (It's a great tropical destination for non-fishing partners.) At Grand Slam we will fish for bonefish, permit, snook, and the occasional baby tarpon. At the end of four days, we will transfer by boat and comfortable van to Campeche Tarpon Bay for another four days of exciting baby tarpon fishing. In Campeche our group will stay at the Hotel Ocean View, literally a couple minutes from the boat dock. Our days will start early in the dark with amazing sunrises as we ride to the lagoons, edges, and mangroves for baby tarpon. By mid afternoon, we're heading back to the dock and thinking about a cold beer, a snooze, or a swim before going into town later on for dinner.
While the ultimate experience would be to travel with us to both destinations and eight days of fishing, we realize that sometimes that simply is not possible, so we've billed this as two separate trips. Do one or both, you choose.
Detailed information and prices are included in the itinerary. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We hope you can join us.
