GENERAL INFORMATION FOR ASCENSION BAY BONEFISH CLUB
All good fishing camps reflect the character and personality of their owners, managers and employees. We have been fortunate each season to have most staff members return, some since the club began. It is part of the reason that Ascension Bay Bonefish Club continues its successful tradition as one of the premier flyfishing destinations of the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.The other reason is our passion for the sport of flyfishing which has brought us together as a team. We are dedicated to providing you exceptional, intimate service. This is helped by keeping our club small with only five to seven anglers per week and by having an almost 2:1 staff to client ratio. Our size not only creates great attention to detail, but allows each angler to have their own guide. Our customer return rate attests to why we are one of the best-operated lodges in the Tropics.
Ascension Bay Bonefish Club is a small, private house virtually at the Caribbean's edge. Bedrooms are large and airy, with overhead fans and electricity. A full bathroom with hot-water shower is standard for each bedroom. Some are en suite while others are located just across a narrow hallway. Screened windows provide views of the calm, flat ocean and garden as well as cross ventilation. A combination lounging-dining room and its adjoining patio are the natural focal points of the lodge.
Traditional breakfasts, with some local Yucatan flair, consist of cereal, eggs, bacon, ham, juices, toast and coffee. Box lunches are prepared for the fishing days and typically include sandwiches, fruits, desserts, ice water and other beverages. Varied meals served family style (both American dishes and local Caribbean / Mexican favorites) are tasty, healthy and always ample. They include fresh meats, seafood, chicken, vegetables, fruits and delicious desserts including the famous flan and homemade pies. Bottled water is used for drinking and ice.
Guides and Boats...
Any fishing lodge is only as good as its guide staff. We are very proud of our guides and their knowledge and mastery of this intricate fishery. The ABBC guides have studied these waters for years and have learned well. Our fishing successes and repeat customers attest to the knowledge and professionalism of the ABBC guide staff. ABBC uses two guides per boat. One senior guide handles the poling and the other stands with the angler to point out the fish. Both guides are constantly probing the flats for fish so that our anglers actually have two experienced pairs of eyes in addition to there own. We utilize 21' custom fiberglass boats that have plenty of storage and a clean front area with a very stable casting platform. While not glitzy, your impression of them will be elevated as you experience the simple functionality and productive results these crafts allow us. Boats are like custom tied flies, some are designed to hook fisherman, some just to hook fish.ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AT ASCENSION BAY BONEFISH CLUB
In Cancun there are the typical resort activities of shopping, swimming, sunbathing, and nightlife. However, at the lodge you better like to eat, fish, and sleep. Part of the beauty of the Yucatan is the remoteness.
SEASON AT ASCENSION BAY BONEFISH CLUB
This is tough. The Yucatan is a year around fishery that only falters because of weather issues. These weather issues usually occur from July through October. So November through June is pretty "prime time". I know anglers who swear that June is the best, others say February. As always, the best time is when you can get away from the cold of winter and the stress of work!!HOW TO GET TO ASCENSION BAY BONEFISH CLUB
Fly into Cancun, Mexico. You will be met and transferred by van to the lodge. It is a three hour van ride to the lodge. When you arrive, you can relax with a cold and tasty beverage or explore Punta Allen on the Mexican Yucatan.
