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 is 50-100 feet deep is a really unique opportunity. For example on Cape Cod, most of the time when fishing from shore I casting lures into less than 10 feet of water.
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 while fishing in a boat not far offshore at all from where this rocky outcropping is located.
I discovered the rocky outcropping a few days ago, and I feel it holds great potential. The video below was filmed during my first trip at this spot. I am casting a TA Bomb Popper when a hard fighting jack crevalle smashes it right on the surface!
