Frank Vilorio founded Land of Enchantment Fishing Adventures at Elephant Butte New Mexico in 1994. “The Lake was in my back yard so I took advantage of it and fished it regularly as a kid”. As I grew older I fell more in love with fishing, it became my passion. Stripers were introduced to the 36,000 acre Lake in 1972. With time the fishing took off. White Bass fishing was bountiful. “In 1989 I had a 14 ft. Aluminum fishing boat with a 30 hp motor, I took a friend of mine fishing who is a doctor and he had the time of his life pulling in White Bass”. He had never experienced fishing. That motivated me to get involved taking people fishing. With time I learned the Lake and how to catch and keep bait alive. I learned how to target areas in reference to the species of fish I wanted to catch. Time and patience showed me what worked.

In 1994 I bought my first Center Console Fishing Boat and applied for my guide license and started fishing professionally. I spend over 280 days a year on the water. My skills are “top notch” now. I run a 24 ft. LTS Triton Center Console fishing boat to catch Stripers, White Bass, Walleye and other species. My passion has been working with kids all ages, even the old ones 70-80 years old. Fishing has no age limit.

On the off season, I book and take clients to Brazil (Amazon) for Peacock Bass fishing, Mexico for Black Bass fishing, Alaska for Salmon and Halibut (time permitting). I participate in outdoor expo conventions, state wide banquets to Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Safari Club International, National Rifle Association and such organizations. I have been featured in Hunting and Fishing in the Southwest, New Mexico’s Sportsman’s News and local newspapers. My sponsors include Pure Fishing, Minn-Kota Trolling Motors, Owner Hooks, Shakespeare and Driftmaster Rod Holders. My website is and my e-mail address is I am a member of Striped Bass Association.
