Discover one of the most undisturbed tarpon fisheries in the world
Pesca Maya is now offering guided Fly and Light Tackle Tarpon fishing day trips to San Felipe, Yucatan. Located approximately 2.5 hours northwest of Cancun, San Felipe is a quaint, friendly fishing village at the top of the Yucatan Peninsula where the Rio Lagartos meets the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. San Felipe is a little known and unspoiled area in the Rio Lagartos National Park. Local Tarpon range from 5 to 50 pounds and produce spectacular aerobatics when hooked.
In addition to possessing the world's largest pink flamingo nesting grounds, harboring a healthy population of salt water crocodiles and offering sanctuary to 350 of bird species, these fertile waters play home to one of the most undisturbed tarpon fisheries in the world. It is the fantastic tarpon fishing, harboring vast schools of those beautiful silver kings that keep you fishing all day.
You will target schools of tarpon that have not grown wary of flies. These fish are not spooked as they are in most shallow water locations. You will encounter numerous schools rolling very close to the boat. Fly anglers do not need to be skilled casters to catch the tarpon at this destination while fishing in the open bay. Besides you will have the opportunity to fish mangrove lined shorelines, small lagoons, rivers and creeks, that will challenge the experienced angler's casting ability. At San Felipe, you will fish out of 18' fiberglass skiffs with Yamaha 40hp with our very experienced local guide. For the most part an 8 wt outfit will be perfect on all but the windiest days.
