I was amazed at the quality of inshore fishing so close to the urban eyesore that is the cancun hotel zone. Fishing with Mauricio was a blast. You can tell when someone loves their job. I had a great time pitching baits under ( an in) the mangroves for tarpon. Also caught barracudas, snappers, Jack's and lady fish. I have... More

I have been very fortunate to have been out with Martin's charter 4 other times in the past 2 years, so when my family and I returned to the Cancun area I immediately booked a 6 hour charter, this time with my 12 year old son. This particular day was hands-down the best outing I've ever had with them. My... More

Went on trip during honeymoon. Jose was my guide and had a great attitude and was a knowledgable of the area, he has the pics to prove he knows what he is doing. We caught around 10 snook quickly and I asked him to go look for tarpon, which we didn't get on any but that's fishing. Had a great... More

October 22, 2015 I went out with my guide Jose and had a fabulous day. Caught over 30 snook, my first Tarpon and a Jack Cravale. I would highly recommend Cancun Tarpon Fishing in the Lagoon. Jose is an excellent and knowledgable guide and passionate fisherman. I could not have had a better time.

Hi, I just got back from my trip to Mexico and I already can't wait to get back there!!! Everything about my trip was excellent but the highlight by far was the fishing I got to do while I was there. I was there for 9 days and got to go out fishing three times while I was there. I... More

Visited Mexico for the first time at the end of September 2015. Whilst on my holidays I always try to squeeze a days fishing in. I've fished Many places and countries. To be honest the majority have been poor and consisted of trolling teasers and lures in open waters and fighting for the rod with 10 other fishing tourists! (... More

Even though I like my baitcasting reels I was not having my best day with the rods i chose to travel with, so he showed me he's technique for spinning... More

We booked a trip to fly fish the flats. We were eaten alive by mosquitos, literally bite hundreds of time in a matter of 20 minutes while fishing in the mangroves. We asked if our guide for the day Israel had bug spray, he did really answer. We asked to be taken somewhere else and our guide Israel said there... More
