Rick got some really nice sized Bone fish , and a Huge jack, but more important that the entire trip went without a hitch.
This is my 21st year taking people into the Yucatan and for the complete package its hard to beat Excalak . The flats , back lagoons , between the worlds second largest reef and the lodge are all super fishy places to fish each day.
The program is to fly into Cancun Sat. night , Sunday, Van down 5 hours to the end of the Mexican border to Excalak , a small sleepy fishing village on the Belize border. Fish Monday to Friday , drive back to the airport on Sat. and now with the direct flights from Seattle to Cancun , we can fly out on the 5 pm flight and be home before midnight on Saturday and have Sunday to get it together for your week ahead.
The cute little hotel offers a great restaurant , Bar and very comfortable suites. WiFi is also available here. Food is local and fresh , staff are amazing with Ed at the wheel .
The guided days are from 8 am to 4 ish each day and most days you can order any fishing situation you desire. Like ...Permit in the morning and Bones in the afternoon ? The fish are Snook , resident Tarpon , Bones over 5 lbs , Permit , Jacks , Cuda , Snapper and other odd species. Fishing can be done by walk and wade or from the boat , taking turns on the bow sight casting to fish targets all day ! I like to book the group and then request my guides for the week according to individuals needs and abilities . Its the kind of trip you book again and again . I am headed out to the O.P. for steelhead season and I am excited...but can not wait to return next November and again in February ! Tight lines and good times
