Fall Permit at Casa Blanca Lodge, Mexico

56 Permit in One Week!


Doug Schlink of Angler Adventures participated in the record-setting week at Casa Blanca, November 6th - 13th, 2004, when 18 anglers landed 56 permit on the fly and racked up 10 Grand Slams. "The Week" was first documented in Angler Adventures May 2005 Newsletter. Interest in targeting permit has grown tremendously in recent years. Once thought to be uncatchable on a fly, permit are being caught more regurlarly throughout the Caribbean due to the increased experience of guides, new, effective fishing techniques, and innovative crab patterns (like Dr. Ralph Cifaldi's Gyno Crab). Fishing trips like "The Week" don't happen often, but records are made to be broken!

There are a number of reasons I like the fall fishery. First, most of the lodges close or are lightly booked through the summer. The lack of pressure promotes "happier" permit.
Water temperatures during the fall are usually optimum for permit, which take flies better in warmer temperatures. Migratory tarpon are available in good numbers into November. The snook fishing seems to be at its best during the fall. Lastly, the rates for the fall season are considerably lower than during high season.
