The Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico is one of my favorite regions on the planet. I have traveled here more than any other destination and know the lodges intimately. There are over a dozen options for tarpon, bonefish, permit, and other saltwater species and all have their own nuances. The weather is almost always warm, although the winter can be mild with average temperatures in the high sixties to low seventies in December through February. It occasionally rains, though usually only briefly. US dollars are accepted at all locations and the electricity is 110 at almost all of our fishing lodges and hotels. The flyfishing is fantastic but I always suggest being open to using spinning gear for the reef species and barracuda.

FISHING GEAR FOR FISHING IN THE MEXICAN YUCATAN

The fishing lodges in the Mexican Yucatan are many and varied.  Some provide all the tackle you'll need, while others don't. Here is a list of some saltwater gear you may want to consider bringing along with you:

7-8-9-10 Weight Flyrod
Fly reel with 150 yards of 30# dacron backing and both a floating and at least one sink-tip flyline for the nine or ten weight.

Medium action spinning rod and reel with 150-200 yards of 10-16# monofilament fishing line.

The guides at our Mexican Yucatan fishing lodges will have plenty of flies but sometimes it's good to have a few of your own.

BASIC FLY LIST

  • Yarn Crabs #4-#6 - Tan, Brown, Olive, Mottled
  • Gotchas #6-#8 - Tan, Pink, Pearl, Combos
  • Asst. Clousers #2-#1/0 - Chartreuse/White
