Follow Christopher Collins as he chronicles his week-long trip to the breath-taking waters of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Many Florida Sportsman members know Chris from his posts as NoSlack on the Florida Sportsman forums or may have seen his name pop up in the magazine. The journey starts on February 14 and lasts until February 20, when he flies home to Southeast Florida. During his trip to Mexico, he will experience its exceptional sailfishing. Chris hopes to highlight his trip by fishing the “baitballs,” a unique scenario when sailfish packs actively corral baitfish into a tight ball and take turns picking off the stragglers.

Isla Mujeres: A Day of Relaxation

In Isla Mujeres, sailfishing is no doubt the name of the game, but the days usually end early. So what to do with the rest of the day besides consume rum drinks? After a good morning, like the previous days, we came back and set out on the “town”. Not to mention that, we also chartered a local panga style boat to take us out snorkeling for the remainder of the evening. Talk about a beautiful place, when your out on the rig everyday fishing is is hard to take in the full effects of the atmosphere. Here are some pictures from a day of relaxation in Isla.

Gin clear waters!
