Default Anyone fishing or going to Mexico anymore?

I been hearing all over and friends of mine that live down there that are getting ready to move from there that the crime rate is so bad everyone is staying away and to risky to go there anymore.Sounds crazy but seem 100% true.Who would take there family to this place to fish like back in the day.Everyone seem to going to Panama and Costa Rica.Seems like all the people in mexico wanna rob everyone once they get there.

How is this different than say Chicago, or any other U.S. city?

Can't wait to go back to my Mexican home. But it is an island, and has been called one of the safest in the world.

Some Islands are very nice. Is it South of Rocky Point?

I go to Mexico on a regular basis. It is just like any other country/city, stay away from the bad areas and you are fine. I have never felt uncomfortable or threaten when I go. I typically go to Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco, Cancun, and Puerto Vallarta. I love the food, culture and people down there and won't stop going just because you only hear about the bad things that are going on in the news (just like here in the states).

Pierre, the left says this and other hateful crimes have been happening here and abroad since the beginning of man and that you just didn't hear about it due to the lack of access to social media, via cell phones, comps, etc. etc. etc. So, live your life and don't be afraid. Good gracious and take some of those hot lures you're buying and go catch a fish

well for one the cops in most cases actually do a legitimate investigation and are not threatened or coerced to turn a blind for fear of them or their families heads falling off for some coincidental reason.

Brah, I don't even like tacos and they don't like me! Very gassy and very odiferous.

Don't like!

BUT, Rocky Point and the great Cave is worth risking the crime and tacos!

Right, which is why there is no crime in Chicago.

I spend a lot of time around Rocky Point, have several friends, money goes a long way, beer is cheap, girls are friendly, it's what the Key's were about 50 years ago, very relaxed

I exclusively use handmade lures, some from Dulcy, some from a local guy. Lwpeirrat, didn't you say you sold lures, how about some pics, for $12 I might give one a try. Got anything rainbow colored or with a lot of pink in it?








But that wasn't the point was it lwpierrat? You seem to be a slow learner. Trolling will cost you a lot around here. If I'm wrong about your intentions, my apologies, but I really think you are just poking the bear with a stick. Didn't Whit and Dulcy school you all ready?
