Yellow Dog’s Jim Klug and Ian David just returned from a trip through the Yucatan, with stops that included Scorpion Atoll, Isla Holbox, and Isla Blanca. One of the most exciting takeaways from the trip was time spent at Miguel Encalada’s new Fin Chasers operation in the Isla Blanca area. This is an easily-accessed program that is based out of a small boutique, beachfront hotel that delivers the intimacy and feel of a high-end fishing lodge. The program is located less than 45 minutes from the Cancun International Airport, making this the ideal location for a quick trip with very little transfer time required. Whether you’re looking for a short weekend escape or a full-week fishing package, this is a fantastic option. Isla Blanca is located 35 minutes North of Cancun and is the gateway to the Mar Caribe Biosphere – an expansive fishery covering that stretches north from Cancun all the way to Cabo Catoche (the line where the Caribbean meets the Gulf of Mexico).
This beautiful fishery provides year-round opportunities for juvenile tarpon, snook, permit, occasional bonefish, and access to offshore migratory tarpon during the summer months. With an expansive system of sandy flats, mangroves, and back-country lagoons, it is hard to believe that the Isla Blanca fishery is so close to Cancun and the large resorts that are found throughout the area. Packages of any length can easily be arranged, and guests can arrive and depart on any day of the week, at any time of day. And did we mention that all fishing packages include SINGLE OCCUPANCY accommodations at this beautiful new ten-room hotel?
