Caleta is Spanish meaning “little cove.” The well-known San Lucas Cove has a very productive 1 mile wide by 2 mile long shoreline for fly anglers. The shore is complete with mangrove lined flats and gravel and sandy beaches. The shoreline, both inside and outside the cove, offers ample fly rod opportunities for cabrilla, grouper, spotted bay bass, roosterfish, pompano and a variety of other species. The entrance to the cove is also a popular fishing area outside. Depths reach 1,000' (305 meters) and nutrient-rich currents attract a noteworthy variety of gamefish to the area.
