hell yeah really looks like it
roberts rangers, shallow diving Rapala xrap, bomber saltwater badonk - a - donk, gt ice cream, madscad, etc.
time for a new wife
this is hilarious.
what a world we live in.
chicks that fish
chicks that are single
let me guess your favorite show is rachel maddow
i cant believe some people dont like smoked fish. its the only way i can eat yellowtail now, that or raw. have to try dehydrating sometime
what time do the boats leave for an overnight trip?
$206 at the moment
volaris just opened up flights to pvr from phoenix, its pretty cheap flights. any recommendations on a cheap hotel and panga? ive stayed at the...
i need to get on this trip someday sounds awesome.
i was wondering if something like a 2oz crippled herring with an aftermarket ring and hook would work. But they’re 3” long
what an incredible trip
ive shot lots of coyotes with 7mm, no cares given.
i just leave them. some guys skin them and sell them but desert dogs here even in winter arent really worth anything
Just extra protein
i love seeing your reports over the years. you got the blue steel pose down.
It’s a fishy boat

is pissing in the pool not an american jackhole move?
ive done good with pencil poppers in the sea of cortez
how long does CG inspection usually take?
how dare he enjoy himself on a fishing. the nerve of that guy
Im kinda new to posting here, but you’re kidding right?
anybody use VMC's?
PC culture is strong in here i see
Hopefully they get Venezuela cleaned up in my lifetime
i thought this thread was about the pacifica
but did they come in with any bluefin?
too free? This America dang it
I make piss poor money and I don’t want to give mine away either though.
I thought there was good money in construction
i bet he feels pretty small right now.
he was an ego maniac.
the xrap long casts 14s come with singles, i switched my other regular xraps 14s to singles a size smaller, i just think it looks cleaner and i...
can you target them but release them? i was reading a scuba diving story recently and they said theres lots of big ones
NO WAY!! was such a nice rig.
did they say why they hate their kids?
very nice larry.
because the feel the fishing is worth the price but the parking cost is a rip off.
if i get a chance to try that, ill pass on that
this you bro?
you have facebook? message this man
whats the problem?
this is a national problem. youll have the same problems with that here.
totally screwed. lakes got golden algae. you can go and maybe grind up a fish at canyon but not likely. apache totally shot from what im told.
never. but ive been thinking of trying to go out and try the cattle boat thing sometime. i go to mexico, the people are nice and i know my money...
i just want to release them. i wasnt sure if that was even a thing when it came to big tuna.
oh ok, good stuff.
wtf maybe i want to get a new job
i have to ask what do you do at age 22 to be able to afford that
ive been reading guys come home with hundreds of pounds of meat from a long range trip. i only want like 40-50 lbs at the very most. sounds like...
you should get your own boat.
why pay money to go fishing if you dont get to keep the fish
kinda want to book with them now theyre due.
what is the going rate of renting a heavy rod. i messaged a boat and they said 100 for 1.5 day boat
if he is, you can trust him to refer you to someone who will also try hard to get you bit
any pics of the girl?
yes several times and just about everyone here will tell you to fish with him. he's good, and he speaks perfect english. message him on facebook...
go with jaime
are you going to expand on that or nah?
No release on the golden eh
i thought they were like the most prevalent species in southern california?
I see a lot of reports of guys catching calico bass but don’t see many posts about cooking them. Are they any good to eat or just average
the bite in the estuary south of town is going pretty good for corvina id check it out. theyre catching grouper also off shore
wow what a great trip.
seriously the next drop after I caught the grouper I used the same Mardi Gras looking rig and caught this dink yellowtail
Cabrilla. Got me rocked up but he came out.
A golden grouper on the slammer 3 and penn rampage jigging rod
Gulf grouper. Dude it was slow so I thought whatever I’ll try something different. A 2.5oz bucktail with a swimbait trailer in about 140ft
Slammer 3 6500 with 30lb mono
you could hire arturo. you could also have a ton of fun fishing out of the zodiac.
looks like ill be there the 15th and 16th
You were catching bluefin while I was watching brother where art though on tv. Kinda ironic
Does anyone verify that they’re actually released?
i wanted to go that weekend but i guess arturo is booked so i have nobody to fish with.
i looked up that seagaur knot. looks easy af
cuz im broke and wanted to save $50 but i guess i better get it.
is a uni to uni knot ok for mono to floro
i have no experience i just read the reports. i was thinking of going in a couple weeks and i havent seen anyone mention using mono.
this was my...
instead of using a floro leader or is that just crazy talk
Wow that fight must have been insane
i quit fishing with a certain captain down there
that wouldnt have scared me. maybe the next captain will keep you way off the rocks and way off...
if a captain puts me on marlin, 40lb grouper, and pargos in the same day he can call me whatever he wants.
wow great fish, im jealous.
maybe it shoots in 3 shot burst so one accidental pull is 3 shots.
honestly i think the whole situation is sad
the 6.5 needmore
one of 2 things happened
1. he was doing stuff he shouldnt have been doing
2. this didnt happen
i was just down there fishing sunday and monday. have fun
be easiest to just tough it out and right hand reel
wow that is a bad ass old ram. thanks for sharing
congrats what was the weight on that big one
how come they all use dtx minnow and not x-rap
i could kill it in PL with this.
i hope arizona never gets like this.
this was great.
the good stuff. Talica, avets, stella, etc.
the show kicks ass
why didnt you check your zero after missing a couple times?
fuck cattle boat fishing.
love my penn slammer 3 6500
there is a cement ramp, never seen anyone use it. arturo can launch you from the beach for a small fee. i camped in a vacant lot there one weekend...
how deep were those groupers
mainly going to be sierra's
you can bring 50lbs in a cooler and about 10-20lbs in your carry on.
ive fished with jaime the last three or 4 years in mid to late may and weve done good. i think this year im going to try and go around the first...
theres a lot of people that wont spend money in CA for a multitude of reasons
think its been $85 the last few times i went.
i always just walk out and get a private cab, probably pay too much but they get me where i need to be fast.
marlin, yellowtail, pargo, small rooster, sierra
how much are the cheap pangas in pedasi?
nice bull, private land hunt?
making me want to go to hawaii just to piss off the OP
sounds like they wanted a little mordida
really? i havent seen many except little pangas that will take you out 1 mile to catch triggers. i saw theres a big boat that takes people out but...
is it possible to fly to mag bay and is there charters there?
does kastking suck that bad? i have it on my fathom 25n but ive only fought fish on the top shot for the most part
I brought mine in carry on both ways had no problems, with line on.
Das it mane.
True we didnt catch shit that night. Was wondering why you ran in, makes sense now
Was the Mexican ling cod a fine spotted jawfish?
If it was ultra safe, everyone would be there
What a tank.
My friend in az just booked Jaime for Saturday I think but Jaime will always refer you to someone good, don't trust the coyotes in the marina
They got them at minervas in Cabo
good to know thanks.
is it ok to use or is it crap? i dont know many knots but i can tie that one. never had any thing really big pull on it though
His phone number: 011 52 (624) 137 3800
Or message him on Facebook "jessica sportfishing"
haha yeah and i most definitely did not go to the back room at splash, mermaids, and lord black, While I was there. I didn't go to the massage...
Did the yearly trip with my buddy and fished with Jaime and his friend Chris. They worked hard for us as always and we killed fish (marlin and...
They have them at minervas in Cabo San Lucas
youre mistaken, the roads are terrible and the pressure is high. nice fish though
im talking about pulling the line out while the reel is in gear and the spool feels like its lopsided. its subtle but you can feel it thumping...
I got it set at like 13lbs. I can feel it the whole time from 1- strike
This is my first lever drag 2 speed so idk maybe this is normal, but when you pull the drag you can feel like a thump, like something is lopsided...
not you the guy that says panga are no fun
sounds like youve never been there ever
lol he's just kinda wild and loud and i can picture him being a general pain. i was thinking there must have been a time over the years someone...
a guy i know says he booked a spot on a 15 day boat and im thinking someone will want to kill him by the time its over
i need a boat to ride on the 28th if anyone has a open seat
let me know if you want to split the boat those days im fishing with him the 12,13,14
4 people would be a lot for vics panga.
Looks like they've been catching some according to pics I've been seeing online
you motivate me i just ordered 2 gt ice cream to take to CSL in may.
Dude that's bad ass
word. ive been hitting puerto lobos way north on the other side but you can see that angel island really easy. just wondering if any bill fish up...
oh i see.
just curious if they ever show up
i appreciate that i will hit you up.
im thinking of renting a quad and fishing the beach, sounds like fun.
I got to CSL every year and ive been to east cape once 22 years ago. i want to do some more beach fishing thinking EC would be better for that or...
wow so cool, is that a lund?
jaime of course
jaime. he has spinning set ups.
ive been going to cabo san lucas the passed 10 years i like it because the short flight from phoenix and the cost of everything once im down...
you CA guys think way different.
i get it, but thats just kinda of a crappy world to live and fish in. cutting off a fish just because it crossed an imaginary line during a fight.
When it's windy is fishing from the shore possible
ive done it numerous times. ive wrote down that i brought fish, never even had the slightest hassle.
jaime's panga is pretty sweet your old lady would probably like it.
heres an idea catch your own, release it, then pat yourself on the back
oh damn i guess i should have read the story...
i think fishing with jaime on his nice panga is the way to go. this is his email [email protected]
what does flipping rod around and reeling backwards do?
Would the 7500 with a 7 foot heavy...
Word. what size penn fierce, 5000?
right on dude thanks. yeah ive read about the following the line thing and watched numerous vids on youtube. thats kinda why i keep going back and...
Good stuff. it would be cool to have my own setup or 2. All the 1.5 day boats are pretty good right? I can't really go wrong on any boat I book?
I've bottom fished private boat in a puerto Penasco when I was a kid a few times and trolled in Cabo on charters a lot. Been to San Diego on...
i want to go over there and fish for tuna and yellowtail, would something like a 1.5 day boat be legit for a first timer or i should i start with...
I'm sorry I'm having a heck of a time trying to post pics.
Fished Saturday night with Jaime, my buddy caught a Sierra and about a 10lb cubera. Talked to a random coyote and went on a cruiser yesterday,...
Hammered the roosters today, they were everywhere. Jorge said we landed 11, a few came off, plus 4 big toros, 2 skipjack.
It better be calm tomorrow I'm getting up early to fish
I had a great time last May, wahoo, Marlin, dorado.
Today I got on a cruiser since the pangas were shut down and we caught 1 Marlin.
I'm staying right here at the Tesoro. Think my buddy wants to hit mango deck for a little bit right now, if we can't chase stripers we might have...
You guys would be ashamed of me, went out Friday evening/night we caught 1 cubera 10lbs and 1 big Sierra. Then I went boracho, was too hungover to...
I'm fishing with him tonight, Sunday, Monday, I wanted to fish Tuesday but he said he was booked! Lol. I'm staying in CSL
leaving saturday morning
heading down there in 3 weeks
awesome, i really want to go there and try it
looks like im going 2 weeks before that, which is good for you because the bite is always better after i leave lol
ive fished that weekend a couple years ago, saw tons of tailers was a lot fun. you fishing with Jaime?
Have you ever fished with Victor?
never met him but kinda wish i would have. it sounded like he lived the dream big time
Probably sucks for you guys down there but up here in Mesa Arizona we can't wait to get a little wet tomorrow
He's always put me on fish.
You killed it. A pleasure to fish with Victor? That dude is like fishing with my angry dad.
Fish with Jaime on his panga
Hope you guys get some wahoo.
sorry the pics are sideways. been eating so much fish.
Thanks for all the pics
How far is it to gonzaga bay from Phoenix anyone know? Looks bad ass there
Im Jealous. Here is the one we caught 8 days ago with Jaime laying in his cooler.
Nice dude I fished with him the previous day and caught 1 lol. He told me you guys spanked em the next day. Boy they are some good eating
good choice on the boat. doubt youll get a yellowtail its warm water now.
Thank you, my freezer is looking really good right now. Cabo San Lucas.
fished with victor 1 day, Jaime for a day and a half. Woke up late another day I didn't have a charter but Jumped a random panga and went inshore...
right on, im fishing with him next week.
i booked victor santi for the first day. hopefully the weather is worth a shoot. looks like it might be windy
i kinda want to fish with that jaime dude, how do i get a hold of him? i searched the forum and came across his number but i couldnt figure out...
i was looking at that.
are the van wormer resort boats any good?
well i used google and one dudes page said 400 a day for super panga, i thought that was pretty steep?
i searched the forum and saw that victor is recommended. i sent him a message from his website.
im thinking of booking a room at the playa del sol, its cheap. anyone been? can i book a panga guide on the side myself or do i have to go...
i wasnt planning on it, but id be down to fish it if its going on when im there. i just wanted to get me and my dad some fish to pull on mainly. i...
thinking about heading down there in 2 weeks. preferably for marlin but we'll fish for whatever is biting, any blues being caught?
does jaime have an email?
this is what I want to do. cool trip dude. how much skill does it take to fish from a kayak if you've never done it before and what gear? I was...
so basically no matter where we go we cant lose for the most part. right on guys thanks
i just went on their website, ill check it out. trying to go down there with my dad and do just that.
im planning my yearly southern Baja trip, thinking about taking off soon. im intrigued by rancho leonero. I gotta ask, why are they twice as...
its not the cabs that get old, its the staying at PB that gets old lol
just take a cab to the marina, $15 from the sunset. its a rip off I know but that's the going rate.
good god I read through some of this and wonder if anyone of you guys even hunt
hope you didn't drop one of those fish in vics boat, dude will trip out hard.
would smash ^
right off the arch? nice fish
i thought that was a homerun?
I fish with victor
he is hardcore, you can count on him trying to put you on fish. he can be asshole, but I...
common dolphin, always thought it was called a porpoise?
fukk! that ladies delts are killer.
$2? ive been paying $3 in cabo for like 6 years now lol, my ass is still bleeding.
ya you gotta be rich to catch fish right?
damn, hawaii sounds like it sucks kind of. the locals are just pricks or what? i went there once but was just a little kid.
you guys have never been on Instagram have you? if you have search #cabo #eastcape. stuff like that, you'll see plenty of locals keeping multiple...
nice dorado mate
i just came into say that i admire all you hard ass's that fish through sea sickness. i dont get sick, but ive seen friends turn green and it...
sounds awesome. flight prices are killing me now. its crazy, round trip from san diego or lax is 325 bucks with a layover in phoenix. non stop...
right on, its ok for bringing ladies too? theyll be a couple of wives and 2 kids going also is going to be sitting around while were fishing. is...
i dig it.
if youre staying at the pueblo bonito blanco or rose, your best bet is probably walk down to the jetty at the marina and fish from there with the...
nah dude ive been fishing my whole life, but mainly walleye and bass. my dad had a boat that he kept in rocky point when i was younger, but havent...
word, thanks guys.
is that ghetto or what? im kind of a beginner wondering if its legit to fish straight mono is poverty as fukk or can you get away with it?
anyone know of a house to rent on the beach that would sleep 8 people?
right on dude thanks. i think im going to try and fish with him.
My Dad wants to put together a trip, short notice probably be the first weekend in June. Are there houses on the beach to rent in Las Barilles or...
fair enough, i just know vic gets bit. jaime has to be easier to fish with lol
victor santi in CSL.
thanks for sharing
best tasting fish in the world imo
ill be there in 6 weeks, hopefully somethings chewing.
yep thats is. had a blast hucking that think and watching them explode on it. got a rooster on it too
"jumpin minnow" thank you. thats the lure i was using last year. been trying to find out what it was. i knew it looked like a rebel though. going...
thanks guys. so you all like iron or rapalas for them? i fished off a panga last year and was using a little topwater bait the panguero had rigged...
or can you get away with straight braid? probably a dumb question, just wondering.
my friend is getting married so ill be down there for the second week in april. i know the bite will be good at lord black but what about the...
thanks for the report dude, youre a funny guy. those trips look like a blast, i want to try one sometime.
specifically from the surf. or surf fishing in general, when would be the best time for that? or is it always pretty decent?
i saw a guy walking through the marina in cabo san lucas on sunday with a some little yellowfin, 1 was maybe 20lbs
ya, i booked him off the recommendations from this site and im glad we did. funny guy too. and we ran a long long ways in that panga
just got back from a few days and nights of partying and a couple days fishing in cabo. bought one of those groupon vacations, 4 nights at wyndam...
im just going to pretend i didnt read that and keep imagining groups of marlin 1 mile from the arch lol. im there in 8 days, we just want marlin...
wow, man i can not wait to get there. just seeing 100 marlin in a day had to be amazing.
haha, YES! im there in 12 days, hope they stick around
let me know if you want to split a cruiser 3 ways one of the days.
heck we might be on the same flight out of california. im going with my friend who will also be trying for his first billfish. hope its on fire.
im fishing the 1,2,3 of june. im just going check the reports everyday till i get down there and decide.
sick. 3 weeks im there
thanks for the detailed report.
nice, i havent heard of that one. i'll look it up the location
wow, i want to hit that sunday buffet but im planning on fishing the 3 full days im there.
what about this place las mariscadas i see on tripadvisor? any good?
i know right where that gardenias is at, just never been there. cant wait to get down there.
ill be staying at the wyndam but im down to cab some where to. i will check those reccomendations you mentioned. I'll be at Lord Blacks to sample...
the last few years ive gone with friends and done the all inclusive deal. which is ok and all, but i like hitting the local spots. Any favorite...
bought a groupon for my trip next month. 4 nights at wyndam for 299 bucks, im going to split that with my fishing partner. how do you beat that?
i also ate there, we brought tuna and it was the best ive ever had. the way with with capers, delicious.
not my first time but my firend thats coming with is a beginner saltwater angler. hoping to hook up with marlin anyway. that spearfishing sounds...
felt like i was there reading the story.
well i'll be there the end of may, hopefully its on.
do you suppose that other mark in his mouth is from being released previously?
those paintings in the top pic look amazing
well the pangas will take you just out front basically and you can catch triggers for days. ive never fished on a charter out of rocky point, we...
depends, do you just want to catch fish? or do you want to go out to the reefs and try for grouper and what not
lol, where is your sense of adventure?
i liked the part where he says they were conservative with their off road decisions. then they proceed to bury the truck on the beach
ya he hasnt really done any mexico trips. its going to be a lot of fun for him. bought one of those groupons. 299 for 4 nights at the wyndham, so...
im taking my friend that has never caught a marlin so hopefully we get into one of those. at least see some to throw bait at to give him an...
ok, well im booked. hoping to fish on june 1st, 2nd, 3rd.
i stayed there when it was new in late 90's and didnt have that experience at all. we nailed the sailfish and they were staunch on releasing them....
alright cool thanks. sounds like i'll go in late may or june. taking my fishing partner who has lots of freshwater bass experience, but little...
i bought one of those groupons for cabo san lucas and can use from now till the end of july. are any of those months better than others? or is...
i have flown twice with a rod tube with probably the same dimensions you are talking and was NOT charged extra both times. my advice, pay for the...
i flew back from south dakota this summer with frozen walleye in my carry on. total travel time was like 6 hours and it was still frozen solid...
im guessing its easiest to buy coolers down there and fly them back up with the cost of baggage?
thanks for the report.
thats wild, anymore pics?
nothing but problems for me with my 300, ironically ive had no trouble with 400 and worked it a lot harder.
im trying to twist my dads arm to come with me and do this trip. problem is we got a deer hunt same month.
sick report dude. so jealous.
right on, thats a sweet day of fishing
im an amatuer but i dont understand breaking off marlin to catch dorado?
nice dude! do you live in that neighborhood? if so you have too much money
i cant agree more. suprised people are giving you shit for trying to help the guy out. boats that have great looking ad's sell much quicker then...
i totally hear what you guys are saying but this will be good for the people that live down there
my starter stuck on the tracker last weekend but as soon as i get it fixed youre more than welcome to backseat. do you post on the basszone at all?
thanks dude, im in the east valley bu i'll try to make it over that way. if i go in october is it decent fishing? or should i plan for earlier
i was down there 3 weeks ago and caught nothing. threw at 2 marlin and a sailfish
wasnt sure where to post this. experienced freshwater fisherman and ive done a decent amount of saltwater but it was years ago and always off...
well if i release it may die, if i eat it then its dies for sure. but really i didnt mean for this to be a debate. believe me, i totally am down...
i dont think that anyone, especially an expert would say that 100% of released fish live. and BTW they eat plenty of smoked marlin in mexico too....
not trying to start a shit storm, i belive that the fish belongs to the person who caught it and they can do as they please. i just got back from...
who do you usually fly with? im planning on doing this next week with US airways, i called them yesterday and they said they didnt have a problem...
right on. how far did you have to run for the fish?
thanks mike, sounds good. i know it's fishing so you just gotta roll with the punch's. i know i'll have a good time regardless of fish caught.
wow guys, great help. thanks a lot, sounds like i might just try for some in shore. even if the off shore sucks it will be hard for me not to...
bump. im foaming at the mouth to get down there. i fly out saturday morning. fishing and might hit a little squid roe action also.
right on, sounds good
so my trip got shortened a little, i will be there from the 7-11th now . so i should be able to fish at least the 8th,9th, and 10th. from what it...
nice boat, lots of potential there.
one of the better reports ive seen
problem is im just a broke dick, cant afford the cruisers. its true though, since i started fishing pangas my luck has gone to shit.
looks like i'll be down in cabo san lucas, i believe its the 4th to the 11. this will be the third year in a row going in july and let me tell you...
flying from phoenix to los cabos, is there any better deal than us airways non stop for 723 round trip? man it gets more expensive every year.
ok perfect. thank you. i stayed down there last year but didnt even go to the beach much there to check the fishing.
thanks buddy, thats getting it done. a 50lb dorado would be sick.
right on. good luck!
about to head down there on friday. the reports were a little quiet but it sounds like the fishing is picking up, im crossing my fingers. Im...
i will be staying at the sunset beach at that time also. last year i went out with a random a panga out of the marina, the guys name was pedro....
nice work. im headed down to cabo next month. good luck on the unit 1 hunt, im from the white mountains. hopefully that whole unit doesnt burn down.
the mystery fish is a scad right?
