Just booked 2 weeks in the Riviera Maya area of Mexico, leaving 25th Feb.

As usual I'll be packing the 4 piece spinning rod and a fly rod.

Anyone been anywhere near?

Any advice, the WSF advice is a bit thin on the ground so anything appreciated.

Not really interested in a charter boat, just shore based.

Ta!

I think you may well need a shore license there (recall reading it on the WSF Intl. section)

Dug out this link http://www.pescamaya.com

May be worth dropping them an email and asking on tactics / gear or even getting a guide for the day?

Just realised that if you are near Ascencian bay you are in for a treat - reputed to be a fantastic fishery!

Check the FAQ's here http://www.pescamaya.com/frequently-ask ... hing-trip/
for lic details and gear to take :D

Have fun! I have to wait until April :(

As far as I can tell Tom, you only need a licence if you are boat fishing.
But I'll check it out further, don't want to get banged up in a Mexican jail :muttley:

If you see them 1/4,3/8 and 1/2 oz wiggle jigs, in tan, pink, and chartreuse and white. The bonefish, and the odd smaller permit love them. Plugs with strong treble (file the points to cutting edges rather than points, keep the points short too, much better hook ups on "old concrete gob" Tarpon. Also found that small tarpon love 3-4" curlly tailed grubs on small jigheads. some 50 and 80lb flourocarbon for leaders will help with the hook up rates as well.

Online shops like BassPro, Cabelas, World Wide Sportsman.
But chances are that you will find them in any tackle shop along the coast in Mexico.
Will find you a link later.
