March 16, 2019 - Start of the trip.
2PM: All clients will need to transfer to General Aviation Terminal located approximately ten minutes from the International Arrival Terminal. The night before you are scheduled to take the air charter to the lodge, you will be contacted at your hotel by a Casa & Playa Blanca representative. The fishing lodge representative will tell you what time to arrive at the General Aviation Terminal to meet your air charter to the lodge.
From Cancun, Casa Blanca will provide an air charter, which will fly you directly to the lodge. The flight takes approximately 50 minutes.
After the plane arrives at Punta Pajaros on the Casa Blanca airstrip it is a short trip via boat and truck (1.5 miles) to the lodge where a cold beverage awaits your arrival. There is a short walk from the plane to the boat dock so change into your boat shoes before departing Cancun. Your baggage will be transferred by the lodge staff and placed in your room. The boat ride can be wet so dress accordingly or pack your rain gear on top.
There is no guided fishing on the day you arrive, but feel free to wade the flats around the lodge or fish along the beach. On the day you arrive, after dinner, lodge staff will provide a general orientation explaining daily schedules and lodge policies.
March 17-20, 2019 - Casa Blanca Lodge and fishing days
Fishing: The schedule at Casa Blanca revolves around breakfast from 6am to 7am then departure at 7:30 am. The skiffs at Casa Blanca are located directly next to the lodge so at the conclusion of breakfast the Angler has a short 2-minute walk to the skiffs waiting at the beach. Return to the dock between 3:30 and 4pm.
The Flats: Each morning your guide will stock the boat cooler with twelve complimentary soft drinks, beer, and water. Casa Blanca is known worldwide for providing excellent fishing to the big four flats species. Casa and Playa Blanca are surrounded by a unique fishery that provides the angler possibilities to target Permit, Bonefish, Snook and Tarpon in a single day.
Boats: Casa & Playa Blanca provide 16-foot, Dolphin flats skiffs equipped with Yamaha 4 stroke engines. Each skiff is designed to accommodate two fishermen and a guide. Each is constructed with a forward casting deck, tandem passenger seats, rod holders, a poling platform, angler storage in the bow and safety equipment storage in the stern. Lean bars are available by request be sure to communicate any lean bar requests with the Fishing Host. The fly rod holders are constructed with bungee cord so it is recommended to keep the reel cover on your reels while in transit. The holders do tend to bounce thus possibly causing abrasion or breakage in extreme conditions.
Guides: The guides at Casa Blanca are an extremely knowledgeable crew. The guides bring with them years of experience fishing the waters that surround Punta Pajaros as well as a friendly, can do, attitude that is unrivaled by other parts of the Caribbean. The language skills of the guides range from fluent to efficient at Fishing English. If at any point communication becomes frustrating please speak with your fishing host so the lodge team can work out a solution.
