Anyone in Cancun March 12th-21st want to go fishing

9 posts in this topic

I will be near Cancun, actually Isla Mujeres in March for a family trip I will be booking two days of sail fishing with a boat I have been on a few times before. Want to know if anyone will be there and would want to come fishing and split a trip?

Lots of hook ups and a lot of fun. 20 minute ferry ride from Cancun to the island then fish from 8:00 - 3:00

let me know if you want to go!

Timing is everything. I'm going on jan 30th. but can you tell me who you used and how much it was. Any other help also. I've never tried fishing in cancun yet, didn't think it was a real hot spot. Good luck

I'm going to be down there Feb 9th - Feb 16th and that was one thing we plan on doing. We rented a house in Puerto Morelos which is abotu 20 miles south of Cancun. People I am going with went fishing down there last year and said it was a blast so I am really looking foward for this trip.

I have fished with The Keen M This boat is owned by an American who lives on Isla Mujeres a small island off Cancun google KeenMsportfishing $900 bucks for the day (not cheap, but well worth it, they fish hard!! fish from 7:00-2:00 back in time to hang out on the beach with family but still get a good days fishing!. cool.gif

We run out about 10-40 miles and troll ballyhoo for sailfish.

Last year we did stop trolling after a few hours and bottom fished caught a lot of hard pulling fish. snappers Amber jacks etc...

Big waves are the norm this time of year! If you think you may get seasick dont go! sick.gif

Dont know much about south of Cancun.

I have also spent a couple days with a guide in Cancun, fishing the bays and canals between hotel zone and airport.

Small (5-25lb Tarpon, snook, and sharks) a lot like bass fishing. If you bring your own gear you can fish off shore and do ok, top waters, and spoons for barracudas. small 1/8 oz jigs with Gulp! shrimp catches everything. >>>>

Nice pics swampbuck:) I just read a report one of the saltwater websites saying the KeenM caught 15 sails today, with the bite just starting to pickup. Feb-march is high season there from what I've read, is that when you've gone? Never been on the atlantic side, I've fished Mazatlan and Cabo on the pacific side extensivly, where we chase striped marlin instead of sails. It's all good:)

what site is that? I would like to check it out.

Yes March is the best month to go.

I fished Ixtapa last year as well.

Bigger sails and a chance at a Marlin there.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
