What do we mean by:
“Fish the tides, not the clock?“
Tarpon Caye Lodge is surrounded by miles of some of the best fishing flats in the world.
Nothing gets the heart racing more than spotting and stalking a school of feeding Permit up on a flat with their tails in the air! But Permit are spooky fish, and they will not leave the cover of deep water to feed on a flat at low tide, the water is just too shallow.
Our guides know that your best shot at a Permit will be during the four hour period surrounding a high tide, i.e. as the water comes on to the flat, peaks, and then recedes. We will plan your fishing day around these peak windows of opportunity. If high tide is at 6:00 am, you can set your clock for 5:00, grab a cup of coffee and a muffin, jump in the boat with your guide, (who is also staying at the lodge) and be on a flat in five minutes for the best opportunity on a permit!
