Ensenada Fish Report Great Day Good Fishing 4/18
Left Saturday 4/18 on a cattle boat out of Sergio's Sportfishing. Weather was beautiful with calm seas and little wind.
Thankfully I brought all my own tackle as the loaner poles had seen better days and all were set up for bottom fishing. We headed to the Northeast side of Todos Santos Island with frozen squid. En route we came across a bunch of birds. Captain says throw iron so I threw a small blue and white Tady on a Curado 300 and inshore Terramar. Hook up!! Line goes out. I was running 12lb as the boat was mainly targeting reds and bonita. I thought I hooked a big Bonita and I was kind of embarassed cause it took a while to get him up to the boat. When I got color I realized I had a yellow!!!
First one ever. He took off again and eventual came back for a successful gaff.
We fished for the rest of the day as the winds picked up and the sun came out. Two more yellows were landed and more schools were seen but didn't want to play. We also got 7 good size Bones with numerous decent size reds.
6 people on the boat, beautiful weather, my first yellow, friendly knowledgable deck hands and captain, all with a hot chick. Can it get better? I think not.
I have to say I was overly impressed with how geniunely the deck hands and captain fished. They were always moving chasing the tail with enthusiasm and smiles. They really made my first trip out of Mexico a memorable one!
I also want to Thank Jay from ensenada.com for being so helpful. I sent a PM telling him how hesitant I was to book the trip online. He left his number and told me to give him a call. I did and he assured me everything would work out and it did. I booked hotel and charter and not one problem to speak of. It was a pleasure meeting you and thank you for what you do. You helped to make my trip one of the best trips I have been on period!

Metal is not for everyone these days :-)
Yep, the yellows are starting to pop in this warm weather.
You can now see first hand that Baja is not the war zone that you hear on radio and TV these days in so-cal.
Let's keep in touch and I'll invite you and girlfriend to go out on Selena. Albacore should be showing up around the first on June.
Thanks again for the props mang.
Baja or Bust
Get in the Tuna!
