Jack Crevalle Blitz! | Surf Fishing Report From Mexico

Ryan Collins

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!

    1. That’s good to hear!

      Are you catching them from shore or from boat?

    1. They tasted great. Lauren makes a nice little recipe with them. It actually tastes and looks like steak tips! Here’s a link https://creativelydelish.com/cajun-crevalle-jack/

    1. The locals are very, very good with the hand line. They are also superb with the cast net. Every single day there are guys at the beach cast netting and they throw perfect “pancakes” every single time.

      The jack tasted great! Here is a link the recipe which Lauren uses https://creativelydelish.com/cajun-crevalle-jack/

  5. fun! did you bring the fly gear this time, or just the flies? i see your teaser.

    1. The teaser worked great, and yes I did bring my fly gear. I tried fly fishing yesterday afternoon near an inlet where a freshwater river dumps into the ocean, but no luck. I will try again!
