cancun report

Just back from Cancun – whoo, got to get back to reality!!!! Had a great trip with what happens in Mexico stays in Mexico; except my fishing trip! My wife and I charters Capt Marciano of Cancun Tarpon Fishing Adventure (http://www.cancuntarponfishing.com) and had a great time. We were accompanied by Apprentice Guide Jose who was a blast too. Fishing from a Hewes Flats boat we chased large permit sight casting with no takers – my fault or they just weren’t hungry. Then on to blind casting for snapper, catching moon and mangrove on their baits and tackle as well as my TFO rod matched with a Daiwa Exceler 2000 reel casting DOA jig with 3” CAL bait spooled with Fins Braid. What a blast. Lost what I think was a barracuda (Jose’). Then on to late day Tarpon, fishing live sardines live lined in mangrove canals. You could see them working. First hook-up was on my tackle but short lived. Capt said there’s for you quality line!!!!! They use mono. I am not sure if line gave way or hook knot issue???? Jose’! All in fun. Went to their gear for lack of daylight time and hooked up again getting this one to jump numerous times and boated. Upon release, dock bound to get away from mosquitoes like we have. A great time and highly recommend them if you get that way. They have all tackle so no need to care your own. I just like to try my favorites in other areas.

Took my daughter and Michael rocking before going south and we did finally dodge the wind and find some bait and fish. This was only legal of a few caught/lost. Am hearing rock are still hungry with some nice top water catches as well.
They also made a trip to the Cape last week and got into a load of slot drum. Mud minnows did the job.

Hope to get out this week and maybe try the shad too – will report if I do.

Back to regular hours this week – Wed/Sun 8-6. Still recommend on calling in case I get a trip booked and can’t be here. Come see my new inventory. Also call to check on fishing reports and charter bookings, hoping for a good drum bite this spring along with some trout and hopeful strong cobia year again.

Stay safe – water is still COLD for swimming
