More info about Holbox
Holbox is an incredible island but world class fishing is only the start of it!
Epic Tarpon fishing combines with one of Mexico’s most awesome beaches to create an unforgettably romantic vacation in the sun. While fishing is has been the main draw, the sun, beach and island vibe is definitely world class.
Summer season is prime time for the giant Tarpon migrating just offshore in shallow, sandy water. During the winter, Baby Tarpon are the the main target (October – March) plus Jack Crevalle and Snook are present year around as are Cobia, Snapper, Corvina and Barracudas, making for a great “grab bag” of fly fishing.
One of the world’s top fly fishing destinations, Whether spin or fly, Holbox will quickly become one of your favorites. Your guide will be waiting for you in front of the lodge at 6:00am each fishing day. and you’ll run “up island” a short distance offshore the beuatifiul white sand beaches until you find the fish and begin the day sight fishing in clear ocean or mangrove.
It is a classic fly fishing scene and with the supervision of our good guides, you will have the fight of your life. Afternoons will be spent wading the flats and poling the Mangrove Lagoons for babies, juveniles and Snook. Whether your gunning for the big boys or enjoying a lazy day casting to the babies, you’ll return to the lodge around 2:00pm.
