Here in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, there is a 100 yard rock outcropping from which I can cast poppers into depths of more than 100 feet of turqoise water.
Being able to cast lures into water that deep is a really unique opportunity. For example on Cape Cod, most of the time when fishing from shore, I am casting lures into water of less than 10 feet.
There is no telling what species of fish one might encounter when fishing a spot surrounded by such deep water! In fact we caught mani mahi while fishing in a boat not far offshore from where this rock outcropping is located.
The video below was filmed during my first trip at this spot. In the video I am casting a Tactical Angler Bomb Popper when a hard fighting jack crevalle smashed it right on the surface!

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!
