arive'd in magbay on 11/1/20 we fish'd the next 6 days on rockodilejohns grady white,with us were jim phelps and larry 'hansome' hansen our local cptn ruben duran,we fish'd neer shore for snook,grouper,gulfys,pargos and brooms moustly small fish and offshore for wahoo a few dodos,look'd for tuna at the always spot but it was blank that day.we did not use baite off shore and use'd live prawns for the snook and grouper fishing,we cought several wahoo,lots of grouper and several snook but we lost more snook than we cought,those fish pull very hard and if youre tackle is not right,you have zero chanse at turning them and on the rock theyll take you.

Juan......I always look forward to seeing you and your crew in Lopez Mateos in the fall and comparing fish and fish stories at the end of the day. With a combination of good timing, good fishermen and a good capitan you always score and score big on a wide variety of species. And then it's back north to your day job finding fish for other folks. Here's a photo of Ruben at his fish cleaning table with one of the lunker snook you caught I think it was a week ago today.
