Default Feb 10-22 mexico fishing back with pictures

Happy new year to all. Now that hunting season is over Its time to start getting my surf fishing stuff ready for Mexico. Thanks for others posting tackle they have had success with i picked up a few new lures to try this year. i will be heading down for the above dates to Bucerious and hope to fish every morning before the wife and kids are wake. Last year i fished 9 mornings out front of the resort. With only average success I want to be a bit more adventurous this year and rent a scooter and fish a couple other location within a 30 min drive mostly up near Punta De minta. If anyone is down at that same time and want to get together and fish. Send me a PM or come find me just at sunrise i will be between Bucerious and nueavo vellarta in that open beach area. Some of the new areas I would like to try a ibmight have to hike it so a partner to come with would make a bit more comfortable if something was to happen.

Good luck fishing to all fellow AO members

I am no expert on the area but i have done a bunch of surf fishing and kayak fishing when i am there. There is a couple little beaches with rocks around punta that look great and there looks like a trail going to the north shore of the Punta de mita point. Also a couple spots between la cruez and punta along the 200 highway that a guy could walk into from the highway. The sand beach along the resorts is pretty slow fishing and busy with people walking while your casting guy has to check his back every cast. If you have kids the la cruez marina is fun to jig from and catch small perch fish.

We'll be down in Punta de Mita Feb 6-13. Looking forward to some deepsea fishing. We're two of us looking to share a charter. Looking at a 10 hour trip with y knot charters out of Punta de Mita. Pm me if interested..

I would take one of those and call the whole week successful.

And speaking of kayaks, I am guessing there is a place to rent a fishing yak

I used the biggest 1 3/8 iirc bass pro has a similar lead casting spoon and I think it comes with a dressed hook which is something the slab spoon is missing. I wish the slab spoon came in a 2 and 3 oz version. You can't even buy a mold that is bigger than 1 3/8

A new lure to try is the yo-zuri mag darter it has a weight transfer system that should make it fly quite well
