Video: Chasing Ascension Bay Bonefish in “The Schug Chronicles”

The Schug Chronicles from Christian Ihrybauer on Vimeo.

A very well made new video from Christian Ihrybauer with bonefish ventures in Ascension Bay, Mexico.

From the video maker:

“The Schug Chronicles is the Visual Mardi Gras of a Day out on Mexico’s beautiful Ascension Bay. Axel Schug and his little ripper Stephen took me out on a Bonefish filled day of laughs, fun, and backing line. Thank you to the Schugs for having me on board and I hope the result is as dynamic and action packed as the day was!”

More on this fly fishing destination:

Ascension Bay, Mexico gets anglers fired up for several reasons. Among the reasons most frequently referenced are permit, bonefish, tarpon, and snook. Of course you can mix in several other critters, but at the least, dreams of grand slams and super slams often bring Ascension Bay’s fish-rich flats to mind.

What’s more, this region is rich with culture, history, and natural resources. Anglers chasing Ascension Bay fly fishing fantasies typically fly into Cancun then trek south several hours. In doing so, anglers pass through Tulum and local ancient Mayan ruins. While history enthusiasts, dooms-dayers, and tourists venture to the area to see the remarkable ruins, for anglers, this is a very worthwhile stop en route to the final destination.

Visitors to Ascension Bay also travel through the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. A UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site, the Sian Ka’an is the largest protected area in the Mexican Caribbean and is home to an abundance of bird and mammal species as well as endangered sea turtle species.

Finally, the flats of Ascension Bay deliver the species of fish that make for a trip-of-a-lifetime and the beauty that Caribbean-goers fantasize about. White sands and warm turquoise flats. Hermoso.
