Meet Your Host: Brian Oakland

Brian is the owner here at Got Fishing, and this will be his 8th time enjoying Ascension Bay’s famous saltwater fishery!



Are you looking for a fishing buddy or group of people to adventure with? This hosted adventure is the perfect opportunity to connect with other anglers from all over while enjoying prime saltwater fishing!

This lodge is located in the famed Ascension Bay, which is a top saltwater fishing destination. This location lends itself to new anglers looking to try their hand at saltwater fly fishing, but is also a fine area for experienced anglers to pursue the saltwater grand slam.

On this adventure you can expect 1:1 guided fishing with your own dedicated, experienced guide, which allows for more action in the water.

  • 6 Full Days of Fishing
  • 7 Nights Double Occupancy in the Lodge
  • Transit To and From the Cancun airport
  • Chef Prepared Meals
  • Open Bar at the Lodge

The lodge on this adventure was recently updated (2022) and features six double-bedrooms, a fly-tying study, large dining room, a library / living room, and multiple outdoor patios. Additionally, there is high speed internet for those that would like to use their phones, laptops, or tablets.

A favorite common area at this lodge is “Kaye’s Bar”, which offers complimentary beverages like margaritas, beer, and rum drinks during happy hour. (Many, many fishing stories have been told at this bar.)

Meals are enjoyed “family style” and typically feature local, delicious cuisine like Caribbean, Mayan, and Mexican dishes.

The fishing program on this adventure is top tier.

You’ll find that all of the guides here are the real deal, and they are a major contributing factor to a 60%+ rebooking rate for clients! They have taken a scientific approach to catching permit, and it has paid off – this lodge has landed over 2,000 permit to-date (in the past 10 years alone).

Fly to Cancun International Airport (CUN), where a representative of the lodge will meet you at the airport. From there, you will be shuttled by van to Boca Paila Bridge (which is approximately 1.5 hours). At this location you will transfer from the van to a boat, where guides will ferry to you the lodge.
