Benefits of Becoming a Member

The biggest advantage of being a member of the Novillo Sportfishing Association has always been the members themselves. Due to the remoteness of our location, every member will always go out of their way to help anyone who needs assistance on, or around, the lake. The lake is very large and the locals, in conjunction with the Association, have developed a radio communication system that covers the entire lake and surrounding area.

The Association also keeps the membership up to date on the lake level and current fishing conditions through this website and our monthly Newsletter. These include pictures from the members of their latest catches, lake levels, fishing conditions and any news about current programs that might save our members money and/or provide a valuable service.

Currently, our members enjoy discounts for Mexico auto insurance when traveling into Mexico and for termite protection of our homes. We are working on a number of other programs.

Additionally, our members enjoy two parties per year. The first coincides with annual meeting in November and is kicked of with a Member-Member Tournament. The second, is the Annual New Year’s Eve party that highlights a fantastic fireworks display.

NovilloSportfishing Association Membership Benefits

Members of the NovilloSportfishing Association receive several benefits that can enhance their experiences before, during, and after visits to the lake.

Some of the money-saving benefits include;

  • Discounts of up to 20% on their Mexico Auto insurance. Palms Mexico Insurance, (, has partnered with the NovilloSportfishing Association to provide members with a 20% discount on their Mexico auto insurance. Not only does Palms provide the most competitive and comprehensive Mexico auto insurance available, members get to save an additional 20% off of their insurance premium. In most cases, this more than covers the annual cost of the Association membership dues!
  • Members who own/lease/rent homes in San Pedro de la Cueva or Batuc and need termite control services receive a 10% discount from the our local Teminex company. Termites can be an issue for many and these treatments can provide an excellent means of controlling the little buggers. The savings for members can cover the cost of Association membership, making this also a fine money-saving benefit!
