Cuba Flats Fishing: Best Tarpon Fishing Ever, Grand Slams, Super Slams
“Best Tarpon Fishing I’ve had in 30 years”, reported veteran tarpon angler Richard A. about his trip to Cayo Cruz. It started the first minutes into the first morning. After a short run from Avalon Fleet I, Richard hooked and landed an 80 pound tarpon within minutes of stepping on the casting deck. First cast! And the action never let up. Richard and his partner jumped or landed dozens of tarpon ranging from 30 – 100 pounds over the next 6 days.
“I had a Grand Slam [bonefish, permit, and Tarpon] before lunch. Landed a snook an hour later (Super Slam).” Doug A highlighting his first day fishing on Cayo Largo.
“The fishing was what I dreamed it would be – our group had 5 slams [4 grand and 1 super], which could have easily been TEN! Not too shabby.” Bruce A.
“It was impressive how the permit rushed almost every fly they saw – didn’t matter if they were singles or in small schools, they rushed the fly. Permit, bonefish, tarpon, snook, shark, ‘cuda, multiple snapper species, jacks, box fish, lady fish provided constant action for 6 full days of fishing.” Scott T.
“Terrific Fishing – So much sight fishing – loved watching the entire take as a tarpon inhaled the fly. Great variety too: Lot’s of tarpon 70 lbs and up, Permit in schools and on rays, a big jack and a secret snook spot [that we’ll see again in 2017!]. Anne just missed getting a super slam, landing a tarpon, bonefish & snook on her last day.” Bill V.
Many clients spent multiple nights in Havana and raved about the food, the sights and the warmth of the people. Other clients flew privately to skip Havana altogether and focus on the fishing. In all cases, the “Cuban Experience” overshadowed even the best fishing and almost everyone returning from Cuba talks about a “special trip”.
This fall, US airlines will begin flying direct from the US to Havana, and other regional Cuban Airports. However, more convenient access is just one piece in the puzzle. We’ve learned a lot about Cuba from our personal trips and our clients reports.
Thinking about Cuba? Give us a call or send us an email – we’re looking forward sharing our expertise to give you the “Cuba Experience” of a life time.
