Lying in the shadow of the Cancun, Isla Blanca is one of the Yucatan’s most overlooked fisheries.  It resides a short distance north of Cancun and is home to all “Grand Slam” species.  The diversity that this fishery offers is remarkable... from gin clear flats with tailing Permit, to hundreds of miles of mangrove lined channels filled with rolling Tarpon.  FISH ON!
