A Grand Slam Destination

A Grand Slam Destination

This unique composition of species make it one of the best places in the world for a legitimate shot at the "Grand Slam" which occurs when an angler lands a Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon all on the same day.

Each morning starts with a wonderful breakfast at 7 am that always includes fresh fruit and fresh squeezed juice. As soon as breakfast is over, the guides arrive and after a very short walk to the beach. Lunch is served on the boat, and you will fish 8 hours each day.

This trip is an unbeatable value and the guide quality is spectacular. You will fish from very nice 23' Panga boats, and you will have 2 guides per 2 anglers. This means that while one guide is on the deck poling the boat along the flats looking for fish in the distance, the other guide will be on the casting deck working hand in hand with the anglers spotting fish nearby. It is the ONLY way to fish the flats, and fairly exclusive to this outfit. Wading is done with a 1:1 guide to client ratio.

The food is excellent, and the accommodations are very nice, very clean, and comfortable. We don't want to over sell this trip, but for about half the price of the famous resort rates, you are getting more service here, especially since it is personally hosted by one of our guide staff.

The Red's Hosted Experience

The Red's Hosted Experience

A Red's team member will travel with you and help make your experience the most efficient, rewarding, and best adventure we can. We're there to aid the lodge in coordinating ground transfers, assigning guides, meeting angler expectations, and helping problem solve should any challenges arise. Your host will mentor as necessary, work with the lodge's head guide to coordinate guide pairings, and make group wide decisions that best serve all Red's customers.  

The lodge is located in Punta Allen a few hundred feet off the water, within a 1-2 minute walk of the guide boats. Rooms host 2 people per suite, and each suite has its own bathroom and shower. You may request a single room for an additional charge. Dining is in the lodge's own restaurant on the first floor.

There is most often internet access, and we have an emergency contact number that you could be reached at if need be. Cell phones do not work down there. Just as well. If you absolutely need to stay in reach, bring a satellite messenger or phone.
