GRAND SLAM LODGE, YUCATAN
There are not many fishing-focused destinations in the Caribbean that offer the high level of comfort and accommodations that Grand Slam presents to guests. We promise that some guests will have a difficult time getting out of the bed each morning to go fishing, due to the comfortable mattresses, high tread-count sheets, and oversized pillows. This is not your typical fishing lodge when it comes to accommodations!
Whether you are seeking a well-balanced trip that offers a diversity of flats species, or if you want to focus on hunting permit in one of the top permit fishing destinations in the world, Grand Slam Lodge can accommodate your needs in a professional and comfortable manner. If you want to focus on the area’s plentiful bonefish, then there are wadeable bonefish flats located only minutes from the lodge. You can also opt to take a longer run into the larger area lagoons and expansive backcountry system for tarpon or snook. And then there are the expansive permit flats located all throughout Ascension Bay and the Boca Paila lagoon system – home to some of the most productive permit fishing in the world.
Best of all, the lodge’s location allows the guides to position anglers on protected flats during challenging weather conditions, as the inland characteristics of the famous flats of Ascension Bay and the Boca Paila lagoon provide plenty of areas that can be regardless of the conditions. What does this mean to an angler? It means that you do not have to live and die by the tide charts and the moon phases for your next trip! The experienced guides of Grand Slam can typically find your target species any time of year and offer a wide variety of fishing scenarios.
One of our clients just got back from Grand Slam Lodge, take a look at his great report! Thanks, Jeff!
I want to thank you for all your help coordinating my family’s recent trip to the Grand Slam Lodge in Mexico. We had a great time, and that lodge really is as nice as it looks in the photos (in fact, the rooms are probably nicer). The staff, the guides (Danny was our guide), and Miguel were all very professional. I also really appreciate your responding to all my many questions leading up to the trip, since it was the first non-US fishing trip I’d taken with my son (who loves to fish) and wife and daughter (who do not).
The flats were a bit slow while we were there, which the guides attributed to some cold and rain that happened the week before, and to a hard wind that mucked up the water a bit, and I was definitely responsible for my share of blown casts. Unexpectedly, the trip was made not by bonefish but by the several big barracuda that my son caught on spinning gear. He caught a couple near the mangroves, and on the last day we went out to the reef, which was gorgeous and a very cool place to fish. It would be worth a trip out to that reef even if the flats were fishing better. We did manage several bonefish, and although my son can’t yet cast a fly rod very well, he was thrilled to reel in a couple bonefish on one. I’ve attached a couple photos. I think my son wants to live in Punta Allen.
Thanks again. It was a great trip and all the arrangements that Yellow Dog made (lodging, transfers, etc.) worked out very well.
