Fishing report August 2019, Puerto Escondido.

Due to a lack of rain a lot of lagoons closed again and the roosters stay out of reach for the moment. Some  surf spinning days were really good around high tide and all in all Ruben and I had fun.  I tried to find the fish really close in  the rocks with the Texas rig, Ruben (who lives 30 km. more to the north) only used his Rubylures casting jig. Both of us had a mix of good and bad days but we really can’t complain. I changed my strategy and I try to catch a fish in the morning around high tide in my backyard, Ruben starts at daybreak.  I’m still on the hunt for a good sized rooster but close to home now at walking distance.  Unfortunately it’s too dry for the time of the year but some rain is on his way and it only can get better.

Some more info about  the RUBYLURES can be found here.

I had a nice surprise 2 weeks ago : in a big tide pool a snook (robalo) couldn’t resist my softbait, the 8 pounder gave a nice fight and was landed after some “sweaty” moments. This snook ended up in our kitchen and was prepared bij chef José.  Delicious !!!

Things to do in Puerto Escondido : Manialtepec lagoon

viajes el colibriIf 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 !



Fishing report Puerto escondido July 2019

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 .

Jack crevalle on the T-rigWith 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


Dicover our new lagoon experience !

Robalo, de Pacifieke zeebaarsIn collaboration with Casa Kalani, Casa Blanquis offers a unique experience in and around the lagoon of Manialtepec. With a maximum of 2 guests we go early to explore and fish with the kayak, combined with the motorized canoe,the lagoon of Manialtepec. This experience is unique in its kind and allows guests to enjoy the beautiful nature and mystical surroundings in peace. There is angling in the lagoon itself in the vicinity of the boarding point La Alejandria and in the river around Puerto Suelo where a drink is offered. Beach spinning rods are available to search for a rooster or jack crevalle at favorable tide. Upon returning to La Alejandria, guests are offered a lunch. This experience can be booked through Airbnb or directly via an Email to casablanquis@casablanquis.com

The necessary material is available with the exception of the fly rod. Ruben and I are thinking about making this way of fishing available in the future, but that will take a year to go, we fear. Guests can of course always bring their own equipment.

A nice impression of the lagoon and the beach in Puerto Suelo can be found here

Until the lagoon!
