Q&A: Best Tarpon Lures for Veracruz, Mexico

Posted by Hogy Lures Staff on


I would really appreciate your recommendation on your favorite lures for big tarpon. In Veracruz, we have tarpon from 100 to over 200 Lb.

Thanks for your kind answer.

Location: 2 miles from the beach in front of a River,
Depth: From 40 to 70 ft
Water Clarity: Clear water

Best regards,




We have a tarpon lure kit that would be perfect for targeting these fish near the surface:

You will be able to cast these to rolling fish off the beach. The long profile of our baits will closely imitate the cintilla (ribbonfish) very well.

I would also recommend picking up a few 1oz  – 3oz Barbarian Jig Heads:https://shop.hogylures.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=8000076E-1345683248

And rig them on the HDUV 9inch JIggin’ Eel in Herring Flake:https://shop.hogylures.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=80000A47-1396308866

The kit includes our top colors and hooks for tarpon fishing near the surface. The jigging lure and eel tail are for jigging near the middle and bottom. I’ve had very good success for tarpon with all of these lures.
