almost all the Mexican lakes covered in trees the accuracy
of your casting can play an important role in your success
rate. If your from a part of the country that is covered
in snow all winter and the only fishing you get to do is
through the ice, your casting could be a little rusty. Even
if your local lakes are frozen solid you should try to get
in at least 15 minutes a day of casting practice. The practice
will go along way in keeping you out of the trees and in
the water where the fish are.

I can't stress enough the importance of proper tackle maintenance.

should be lubed regularly and drags checked often
the guides on every rod to make sure that none of your inserts
are cracked or missing. A good tip is to use a q-tip to
check the guides for cracks or rough surfaces.....the cotton
on the q-tip will stick to any cracks or imperfections in
all your line before departing to Mexico!! We recommend
at least 17 pound test for all baitcasting tackle. (I like
to use 12 or 14 pound when fishing crankbaits because the
baits tend to swim a little deeper) If you are using spinning
tackle I recommend 14 pound monofilament or one of the braided
lines like Spider Wire. Line heavier then 14 pound mono
is just to stiff to cast well from a spinning reel, the
braided lines are much softer in the heavier line test weights.
your hooks or use a good quality chemically sharpened hook
on all your baits (this means changing the treble hooks
on all your crankbaits and topwater lures ) We like to use
Owner or Gamakatsu hooks. If your spinnerbait hooks are
not sharp take the time to touch them up with a file.
