December – February: The weather during this time of year is typically very favorable, with low fishing pressure. Larger permit can usually be found seeking cooler water temperatures.

March – May: Spring is the most popular time to fish the Ascension Bay because of mostly sunny days and consistent fishing.

June – August: Summer here tends to be warmer, but less windy! Additionally, there is less fishing pressure because most anglers tend to head towards the mountains during this season.

September – November: This time of year is very similar to the spring season, but you will have to keep an eye out for possible hurricanes.
