48hrs ago the beach in front of our rental condo here in Mexico exploded with a big blitz of jack crevalles pushing baitfish right into the surf.
I first caught glimpse of the mayhem from atop our condo, where I had a birds eye view of the jacks chasing some sort of bait that closely resembled peanut bunker.
After watching the blitz I hustled down to our room to grab my fishing equipment. Within a few minutes I was on the beach amongst a crowd of locals who were reeling them in fast and furious. My wife Lauren would even end up reeling in a couple!

I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
