Hi everybody,

I am trying to gather info for a possible trip to Ascension Bay this summer. The trip would probably be for 5 nights around either the beginning of June OR the middle of June. I have a couple of questions I was hoping you all could help me out with.

What is the best way to go about setting up trips down there. Book with one of the lodges and do a multi day package with guide included ? OR just book a room down there and try to book a guide seperately. The latter was very successful for me in Belize but I am wondering how I would contact the guides down in Ascension Bay?? Can you get a hold of them and make plans ahead of time?

Is middle June still good fishing or is it just unbearably, ridiculously hot?

I could be content casting to bones for forever but would also like to have some shots at Permit and maybe Tarpon as it getting to late in the summer for the Tarpon or is middle June a good time?

Thank you all for help. I became hopelessly addicted that first bone I caught in Belize !!!! Now its time to feed the addiction

Hi Jon,

I was down there in December with a group. If you seearch the forum you will see a report not to far back.

Ascension has great species diversity and you will see plenty of Permit. June there is also the chance of a big tarpon as well.

I will PM you some trip details.
