When in Mexico

Recommended Posts

I haven't fished down there in over 10 years now, every year I say I am going to do it again but never get out.  We fished in the big bay north of Cancun with spinning equipment and jigs, had a fabulous time.  Wife absolutely kicked my butt, which our guide loved since I was talking about all the fishing I did back home.   Caught Sea Trout, Barracuda and a few others.  Really enjoyed it.

Swimming tip for the resorts if you want to see the fish:  Spray Cheese!  You Tube it, definitely works.

Next time we do it, we will bring some of our catch back and have one of the seafood restaurants cook it for us.  Normally go to Akumal in October, plenty of opportunities abound down there......

Snook just love topwater plugs. Tarpon will eat them too. Little bait fish & shrimp imitations are effective too. They will run the trough within a couple feet of the beach if you want to sight fish for them..

Look at the inner bays on the north end of Cozumel and you can mangrove fish for all 3 in knee deep water.  All of them will run the beaches, especially in the summer months.  Outstanding Jack fishing on the northern beaches of Cozumel year round.  I should have knocked that off my fly rod list since I've netted a bunch for others but I've never caught one.

Heading to a place between Akumal and Tulum end of Feb. Gonna spend a day or two on the water. Fished Cabo a couple of years back. Wife had a Striped Marlin on but lost it at the boat. Every time I have deep sea fished it's been during the winter which is not the best time most places in the northern hemisphere. But it sure as hell is the best time to get the hell outta'  the cold up here!

Would you let us know how that goes?  That must be only a few minutes from where we stay (Gran Bahia) in Akumal.
