Fishing and Species
Bonefishing is what most anglers prefer to do, particularly if it's their first time on the flats or at Acension Bay. There is so much water to fish with a great diversity of habitat. If the wind comes up, you can typically get in the lee for casting. These waters are noted for some of the best permit fishing anywhere. There are small tarpon who live in the bay year around due to the abundance of food. Seasonally, big tarpon enter the bay. Snook live in the bay and are in "the snooky" type of mangrove waters. Like permit, they require a deliberate pursuit. The guides all use Dolphin Super Skiffs. It is the perfect craft for these waters. In addition there is the special Tarpon "Honey Hole" that is typically fished 2 or 3 days per week.


Casa Blanca has established itself as one of the world’s finest fishing lodges. Incomparable location, one of a kind fishery, superb facilities, delectable fare, genuine hospitality, outstanding equipment and professional staff are only some of the reasons why Casa Blanca has become an operation to which others aspire.


The lodge sits on the northern tip of the small coastal island of Isla Punta Pajaros in the western Caribbean. Getting there is easy, as it is accessed by a scheduled charter out of Cancun, which is part of the package. It is the only lodge on the south side of Ascension Bay and has as remote and pristine a location as you will find in this hemisphere. The area surrounding Casa Blanca is wild, virtually uninhabited and extraordinarily beautiful. There are miles of shallow bays, secluded mangrove-rimmed lagoons, white sand beaches, and dense coastal jungle. At Casa Blanca you are truly as far from the world and as close to “the way it was” as you will ever be. Each room is spacious and well appointed, and has remarkable views, air conditioning, tile floors, mahogany shutters and spacious baths. Casa Blanca has eleven seaside view rooms and can accommodate 22 people comfortably.


The lodge fishes a vast amount of water from ocean-side flats, the flats and cays of Ascension Bay, and the backcountry mangroves for tarpon and snook. There is a lot of great wade fishing for bonefish and some for permit. Fishing out of Dolphin Super Skiffs is perfect for poling deeper bonefish flats and chasing Permit or Tarpon. This is legendary water for Permit, made famous by Del Brown and others. It also has possibilities for a grand slam. Having said that about the varsity fishing opportunities, I have fished there with first time bonefish anglers who have caught fish and had a blast doing it.


In the main lodge you will find a fully stocked bar and an accommodating bartender along with friends, old and new, swapping stories about the day’s fishing. Margaritas are the house specialty. Drinks are moderately priced and guests are welcome to keep an open tab for the week.


After returning from a long day on the flats, reward yourself with a cool drink and enjoy some fresh ceviche or nachos under the palapa. After a shower, make your way to the dining room to enjoy the chef’s daily specialty. The menu varies from chicken, fresh fish and conch, to lobster and steak. The house specialty is fresh Caribbean seafood. You will always find the day’s catch simply and skillfully prepared. Garnished with native fruits and vegetables, the food is presented to please your eye as well as your palate. All meals are served in the lodge’s waterfront dining room at beautifully set tables by professionally trained staff.


Once you have been to Casa Blanca, and taken the time to explore its vast tropical landscape and experience the exquisite isolation, you will find that it will remain with you long after you have boarded your plane and returned home to civilization.
