The Weather/Fishing is Hot
I will leave a brief report now and I will give a detailed one when I get back into the states.
After arrival to Puerto Escondido I decided to try a little inshore fishing which up until now I have done very little. I grabbed a spinning setup and hit an area of the bay which has a mangrove area. My pops already had a Wax Wing jig set up on this reel so I toss it at boiling swirls and bait fish jumping all over the place. After about 10 casts without a strike I switch out to a plastic swim bait and on my third cast a small rooster fish in the 8-10lb range charges bait right toward me and when I say right toward me I mean this fish almost swam between my legs, within about 1 foot as I stand in knee deep water. My lure was about 5 feet in front of me just about ready to be picked up and recast and this chicken little jumps all over it. Its game on and this sucker puts up a great fight, with line ripping action. Being a worthy opponent the mighty but mini Pez Gallo won its release from the end if a pair of needle nose pliers I carry. Man I'm psyched and replace the tore up plastic. On around my fifth cast this time I'm picked up by a snook. This fish jumps with violent head shaking action 4 or 5 times and spits the lure. Well after that the wind had shifted from coming out of the south to the north and the bite shut down. Man what a great half hour of fishing it was.
The next day we take the boat out and have a epic, most unbelievable day of fishing. My father has lived here for 10 years and fished the area before that and has never seen a day like this. I have to rest my sore arms, you see even typing is to tough right now. Ha ha
