    Surf Fishing in Puert Vallarta

    If you ask this same question on Mainland Mexico forum, you'll get some great replies. The surf / inshore fishing can be excellent for roosters, jacks, snapper, grouper, snook, pompano and some fish that you've never seen nor heard of. If possible, rent or borrow a kayak to improve your odds...

    Premier 4/28 Trip Rocky Point Rockfish

    Thanks for the report. It sounds like a good trip for some of the bigger rockfish. The Premier is a great boat and they do a good job of putting fish in the bags in less than ideal conditions. Today, Sunday, the water is brown and the wind is blowing, so the local surface fishing is still on...

    2nd opinion on guides

    What the guys already said is right on: length in feet + 1 = 8 or 9 guides + tip. I use similar rods I already have for a starting point. Almost all my rods are three to four inches from the tip to first guide so I usually get that one right. Most of my rods are about the same distance from...
