I'll be going to Cancun next Month (May) is there good fishing over there? What species?
Tackle recommendations?

I'll appreciate the feedback,

look up Roberto Navarro and JLC Fishing on facebook, they run ~1hr south of Cancun(Puerto Aventuras) and focus on jigging/popping -- catch lots of AJs, Jack Crevalle, blackfin tuna, groupers, bottom fish etc

else most others are going to troll and do mediocre on your standard pelagics

good variety during springbreak. Big poppers a must.
Thanks, good to know, I’ll contact this people. And yes I would prefer doing poppers, stickbaits and jigging instead of just trolling. I plan on bringing my own gear, last times I travelled and fished didn’t like using the rental setups besides I use mostly spinners and rentals are usually old penn or tdl conventional reels. Not my favorite.
