In 'Open Water Mexican Mix' we have more action from Henry's trip to Mexico's Pacific west coast, this time out in open water in search of a mix of game fish. He's a guest at the Punta Mita resort and the waters around here hold a wide variety of exotic species, all capable of growing to formidable sizes and with the ability of putting up a great fight. Its great fun boatfishing for a day, when you're not quite sure what you're going to catch, especially if you're using light tackle. First up they hit a feeding shoal of African Pompano, these are beautiful looking members of the Jack family with petrol shades of sheen coloration and one long spine extruding from its dorsal fin. The all tackle record for these is just over 50lbs or 22kgs. Next up is a slightly bigger proposition, cue a screaming reel and a massive battle as Henry boats a lovely Roosterfish. These fish migrate up and down a 300 mile stretch of America's Pacific coast and grow to twice the size of the Pompano. In his tip of the week Henry shows how he ties his braid to his mainline using a Double Uni knot and Dr BBQ Ray Lampe shows how to make the most of your catch with a smoked Pompano pizza.
