    Default 10 Days in Play del Carmen

    Ok guys and gals, I'll be in Playa del Carmen for 10 days June 15 - 25 this summer and I wondered if anyone had any advice for fishing the beaches. I'm definitely getting a guide and heading down to Ascension Bay at least once, but I'd like to be able to fish on my own, too.

    Any pointers and/or advice?
    Cheers,
    --Rob

    I don't really know what to tell you since I have not been there.

    Maybe get a kayak and look for inlets to fish. I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't find some cruising snook or juvenile tarpon.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Why are you going to Ascension bay while you are a ferry ride away from Cozumel and which is also cheaper btw in terms of guided tours.

    We do plan on getting a guide on Cozumel, but don't the guides on Cozumel take you to Ascension Bay?

    Do you know of any good spots north of Tulum? Is the surf fishing any good just north of PdC?

    Sorry I don't have any advice for you, but I was in Cancun for vacation with the family a few years ago and hired a guide one day. I think it was Isla Blanca where we fished. One of my more memorable days of fly fishing, a bunch of baby tarpon sight fishing in the mangroves and a permit on the flats. Enjoy, I'm jealous...

    Have a look at this link

    Get in touch with Nacho from the link. He is very reasonable price wise and will put you on the fish. Do not hire any of the guides at the ferry terminal as they will take your cash and promise you the world but they will not pole.
