      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Fishing Acapulco

Recommended Posts

MJCatfish

I'm lucky enough to have a wife who is going to a conference in Acapulco the first week of December. Oh, I'm also lucky enough to be able to go with her. grin.gif I do plan on fishing while down there and was wondering if anyone had any good guide or charter service recommendations.

I've done some saltwater fishing in the Florida Keys, Tampa area, and Hawaii, but never in Mexico. I like to fish more hands on rather than take turns cranking in a marlin, etc. Anyone know of any good resources? Any tip at all is much appreciated.

I'll most likely be bringing some fishing gear with, but probably nothing heavier than heavy bass, light pike-type set ups, unless I hear from here otherwise. I do enjoy shore or pier fishing saltwater as well.

Thanks!

MJ

Have not fished Acapulco, but have fished in Zihuatanejo (sp?) Sailfish is king in this part of the world. If you will be there more than a couple days I would recommend going to the docks when the boats come in-5:00 usually, and see who has fish. Do this a few days and a pattern emerges. Usually a few boats do better than others. Then talk to the fisherman who come off these boats to see who had the best experience with their captain / crew. Book with this guy. Usually they are only booked a day or two ahead.

Obviously you need to be in town for a while for this to work, but it works great. The day I caught my sailfish there were only 3 caught by the whole fishing fleet.

Check out as many boats as possible. Try to get a deal if you want the boat to yourself, they're Mexican, they will deal.

Another tip, learn a few basic phrases in Spanish. The locals you deal with, although most speak English, realy appreciate it.

Good luck and have a great time!

MJ; I fish cabo and Mazatlan frequently (leaving for cabo Oct 10th!) and read a lot about the area, but Acupulco just doesn't come up much. I don't doubt sails would be the main target, and imagine dec might still be good, but they like warm water and thats getting pretty late. See if you can find a couple "fish timing charts". I don't put a lot of stock in them, but it's a start. Hanging out at the docks is great if you have tons of time, I've never had that luxury, plus, where I've fished, if the bite is good the better boats are booked in advance. good luck, let us know how it goes.

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
