Join us for 6 days and 7 nights at Playa Blanca Lodge, June 24 to July 1.

 

Join hosts Jarid Malone and Baron Boyette on Gordy & Sons inaugural destination excursion to Playa Blanca Lodge in Mexico. Playa Blanca, strategically located on the north end of Espiritu Santo Bay, is one of the world’s premier permit locales. Its diverse ecosystem provides anglers with unrivaled access to bonefish, snook, tarpon, trigger-fish and the coveted permit. A grand slam is truly within reach at Playa Blanca.

The adventure of a lifetime awaits you, but only 4 spots remain.

 

June 24-July 1 allows us to take advantage of the new moon tides, upon which permit are more likely to feed aggressively during the day. Permit schools, tailing singles and cruising pairs are all common in Espiritu. Anglers will fish from Dolphin Super-Skiffs, which allow guides to employ a more stealthy, maneuverable approach over the traditional panga-style boats often utilized in Mexico. Guides will occasionally anchor and approach on foot with the angler if permit are spooky, however, 80-90% of fishing is done from the skiff. Unlike Ascension Bay Lodges, fishing pressure is nearly non-existent at Playa Blanca due to its remote locale.

 

Anglers will fly into Cancun on June 23rd and depart for Casa Blanca the following morning via private charter.  After a short 45 minute flight, we'll take a short panga ride to Casa, and then a 30 minute safari-style drive to Playa Blanca. Upon arrival anglers can relax at the lodge/beach or wade a nearby flat for resident bonefish. We'll fish for six full days Sunday-Friday and depart for Cancun on Saturday morning.

When you arrive at the Playa Blanca Fly Fishing Lodge you'll be greeted with hot towels & cool margaritas. 

The  accommodations at the lodge live up to the beauty of the natural surroundings with well appointed rooms and spacious walk-in showers, fine food and service from locals who who live and work at a place the ancient Mayans called, "Where the sky is born".
