Mexican Drug Cartels almost Ruined our Fishing Trip...

Damn those cartels! We were really looking forward to exploring another area of Mexico and fishing at Sugar Lake but the night before we received information that two cartel groups were fighting around the perimeter of the lake so we had to cancel our plans and move to plan B, El Cuchillo Lake again!
