Fishing, Xcalak, Yucatan, Mexico

Porgy of an unknown species. We went fishing with spin casting gear on a half-day charter. It was a little rinky-dink, with small hooks, a small piece of lead, and chunks of herring as bait. However, it was fun and we caught 25-30 fish and nine different species. It was interesting to see the fish I had seen so many times snorkeling, but here they were in hand and out of the water.

 

Xcalak is mostly known as a fly-fishing destination for bonefish and permit.
