Years ago I started making some surface lures, like the Sharky and plastic soft baits. A few years ago I met Ruben who started making casting jigs which he called Rubylures. Today Ruben and I only fish with our handmade lures/shads and the results are really good. We make all our stuff by hand, work together and have a lot of fun catching fish with our handmade lures. I also did some comparing tests in the past and I must say that price/quality/availability in Mexico only 1 brand has a spot in both our tackle boxes besides our handmate stuff : the excellent Stephen Janssen lures which also do their job and sometimes make the difference.
Rubylures isn’t a commercial brand and we really don’t sell our handmade lures, although to recover our costs (material/paint) we offer from time to time some items. Just send us a message via whatsapp +52 1 954 159 0357 and we’ll see what we can do. The purpose for both of us is to fish and fish and fish and…….
Casa Blanquis offers a new experience in AIRBNB: kayaking the Mexicoast in the quiet “winter months”. Ruben from Casa Kalaniand I personally supervise this activity in and around the bay of El Puertecito. We have 2 Ocean kayaks, 1 KAM Kayak and 1 Herritage red fish 14 feet kayak. All 4 sit on top and unsinkable. Fishing equipment is brought by the customer but can also be rented on site if desired (except fly fishing equipment). Non-AIRBNB renters and clients of Casa Blanquis or Casa Kalani can of course also rent these kayaks, feel free to send a whatsapp to
If you love nature, bird watching or cruise the tranquil waters of the Manialtepec Lagoon and spend an evening explore the glowing, bio-luminescent waters Casa Blanquis can recommend you a dedicated young man : Sulen Martinez from Viajes El Colibri (Chuki for friends).All my guests/friends were very happy with his guiding, for more info just give him a call or send a message to his cell phone.
We (Ruben and I) love the lagoon, it’s a peaceful environment and even when the fishing is bad we enjoy this little paradise every time. Just scroll in my youtube video channel to find some short (fishing) videos about Manialtepec lagoon. Enjoy !
July brought the usual swells (big waves) but half July it became a bit calmer with less wind and some fish close to the shoreline
Also the Manialtepec lagoon revived and some nice snook (robalo) and a lot of catfish was caught on Rapala like 5 cm. lures .
With the Texas rig I could catch some nice jacks and a few snappers. Not the big boys but nice fish, good sport on the light Xzoga seabass rod. Also the Rubylures did their job. Still no rooster for me but the hunt continues. The new Sharky lure does his moves and some day a big boy will snap it for sure.
Rare catch this month : a big wahoo with Levi (SurfandFishing Charters) . Wahoo loves “cold” water and not the 30° C temperature we have now but exceptions or surprises are always possible. Enjoy the short video
