Jan Maizler, a long-time saltwater angler, writer and traveler, recently paid us another visit here at Boca Paila. Check out this article on our Press page about his most recent trip to Boca Paila.
Pat Ehlers from the first-rate Milwaukee, Wisconsin fly shop, The Fly Fishers hosted a group at Boca Paila this spring, and what a wonderful trip it was. Grand slams (bonefish, permit and tarpon all caught in the same day), super grand slams (a grand slam with an added snook!) and great fun for all.
We are already looking forward to Pat’s return group trip next March.
Have a look at some of Pat’s pictures here to get you excited, and maybe you’ll be ready to put together your own trip! Boca Paila is a perfect place for families, a couple of buddies or even a group of up to 16.
What a great week of fishing and fun at Boca Paila. Our guests spent their time on the flats stalking and landing three grand slams (a bonefish, permit and tarpon all landed during the same day) and two super grand slams (a grand slam with a snook added). They all had a wonderful trip and pledged to come back sometime soon.
Let us know when you’d like to come down to score your own grand or super grand slam. The fish are waiting for you! Contact us today.
Boca Paila Fishing Lodge offers some of the best flats fishing variety in the world and getting here couldn’t be easier. Many cities offer direct flights to Cancun and the airfares are quite low right now. The fishing this fall has been excellent and the weather here on Mexico’s Yucatan has provided very stable conditions. In the saltwater flats world, good weather means good fishing, and hopefully this trend will continue into the winter and early-spring seasons.
Plentiful permit and bonefish comprise the bulk of the fishing opportunities during this time of the year; however, the occasional snook and tarpon are available to those that don’t mind challenging themselves a little bit by casting tight to the mangroves with small baitfish patterns.
The flats are rested here at Boca Paila, so the fish are happy, ready and waiting for you. We have seen plenty of permit poking around for crabs, tons of tarpon rolling on baitfish and the bonefish are everywhere as usual.
We are excited to see all of our regular clients back at the lodge this season, and we look forward to meeting all of you newcomers. We have the lodge in great shape, our skiffs are tuned up and the guides are champing at the bit to get back on the water to help you find fish. Contact us today to schedule your fishing adventure here on the Yucatan.
Bonefish Tarpon Trustboard member Jeff Wilson was recently fishing with us. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting Jeff and he had a great trip. We are longtime supporters of BTT – we appreciate the research work that they do to help understand, nurture, and enhance healthy bonefish, tarpon, and permit populations around the world.
