As I have been doing most of this winter went up the beach north of mazatlan about 7 miles and fished the corvina. Was very good saturday and sunday witth fish to twenty pounds. I fished just past the surf line in a float tube. Very fun getting spun around and trying to handle a twenty pounder from the tube!I fish with swim baits, bucktails, and spoons with big swim baits better for the larger fish.

We can also fish from the boat of course, but when I go solo I prefer the tube.

You can contact me at or see our website at for accomodations and fishing info.
