Author Topic: Off to Cancun to do some fishing..

I leave monday and I am taking 3 rods with me.. two ocean rods with bait caster reel, tons of lures and steal leaders, I am also taking my salt/fresh 8 weight fly rod with a bunch of flies.. and some braided steal leaders..

Anyone fished the shores, docks or lagoon before? I hear the bridge by the pirate ships is a good spot in the morning and evening..

I guess not.... oh well, Im gonna have some good fishing fun! see ya when I get back!

Good luck man, take lots of pics. What are you fishing for down there. Make sure you dont catch any land crabs haha. Have fun.

Lol... I will be fishing for barracuda, baby tarpon, jacks, whatever I can get to bite!!! I will be sure to post pics when I get back.

The GF and I just got back from a beautiful week in Cancun and the fishing was great! We stayed at the Barcelo Costa Cancun on the Bay side.. I didn't fish as much as I would have liked to because there was so much to see! We did book a guided fishing trip through the Lagoon and it was an awesome experience! Our guides name was Rodman Hunter and he runs Fly Fishing Cancun, he's an american born guide in Cancun and Honduras with over 25 years experience. I highly recommend booking with him if your looking for an awesome time with no language barrier. Perfect english!!!! His tips to fishing the lagoon were great, the boat was 10 years old and still looked like new, all of the gear was in perfect condition and ready to fish. I took my own rod and flies and all the fish I caught were caught on this set up!!! The Tarpon was about 3-5 lbs, the other fish in the pics are Snapper. We saw a few Rays and Crocs while fishing the Lagoon. Rodman also took us to the senoras, fresh water springs that feed the Lagoon... these 5-7 foot wide holes coming out of the earth are almost spooky, he said you can swim in through one side and come out another.. no thanks! but neat to see.. Enjoy the pics!

The sun was scortching!!! so you had to cover up well on the water..

The Tarpon I cought on my 8 weight Dragonfly w/ Kamloops MC 7/8 reel and Rio line using a popper.

one last shot..

Rodman Hunter's web site
I highly recommend him and cant wait to do it again!!!

I didn't get into the big ocean this time. I had never fished a Lagoon before so it was on my list of things to do... A few years back I went deep sea fishing in Mazatlan, I liked the idea of fly fishing in a Lagoon, and it was well worth it!
