Yes. Saw some on the surface a couple weeks ago
There was a small hotel in the middle of town that's clean. Contact Polito for information about it and fishing

Sorry about your experience and thank you for taking the time to post.
Most definitely. Imo, most game fish ( yt, btf, yft, dorado, wsb, ect) are opportunistic feeders and will readily take chunk bait.
Thank you for taking the time to plot the data and offer some analysis. Like you stated, this data was derived from 2018 and may be entirely...
Wtg!! Great report
Yeah. Strange, unsettled weather for sure. We were coming back from Candaleros and we hit pockets of cold air, then hit pockets of...
Nice report, Juan. What's the water temps at Candaleros area and southern end of La Guarda? Was there on memorial weekend and temps were around...
You can call your bank for pesos. Chase and other banks provide that service. Last time I asked, it was 18/1 exchange rate from Chase
Fill out the visa online. Once you cross the border, park and walk into the Aduanas building on the right. Walk all the way to the far right and...
Excellent all the way through! Thanks again, Jerry
IMO, you are good to going to need a heavy dropper loop setup. I fish 100 to 200 lb leaders on a makira 20 and a broomstick.
Hey Bob, how ya doing? Are you able to fish soon? I gotta head down there to redeem myself haha. Got a little gulf grouper that went 15lbs so I'm...
Awesome report, Jose and cool meeting you guys. You guys definitely killed it.
Mucho kudos for your kind act. I'm doing my part and setting up Lilo up with some buddies, too. It's been a while but can't wait to fish with him...
Likewise. Cool meeting ya. You guys got my buddy all excited about spear fishing haha.
Drive was smooth and uneventful as the road is much improved from previous years. However, there were delays ( south and north bound ) just south...
I fished it a few years back. Went on a big party boat and caught bone fish, bay bass, and a few trigger fish. IMO, it was just to "pass the time"...
Best wishes to you and a speedy recovery, Cory.
We're heading down there and fishing with Pedro from Cangrejos on Labor Day weekend ( leaving 24, fishing 25, 26, returning 27th )....
From reports from captains there ,it looks like good fishing on big yt cabrilla and baqueta grouper. Look up Igor Galvan on FB. Hope this helps...
I'm planning on going soon and need a report. Anything happening down there yet ? Thanks in advance
I go with Juan Pollo dinner deal. Comes with chicken, salsa, tortillas, and beans n rice. Toss in a couple serrano chiles and wash it down with a...
I may head down in the next week or so, not sure yet. If I do, I'll Pm you to set it up
Thanks, Juan. See you in Gonzaga in March
Hey guys, does anyone know if Javier is offering the fishing /hotel specials he did in years past ?
Glad you had a great time but, imo, you rushed it and missed out on the true Baja experience.
Next time you go, make sure to allocate more time...
lol that's awesome!
60 lb setup for trolling with rapala x-rap magnums in sizes 15,20,30

Thanks for the great report Dave. Looks like great times. I may head down there this coming weekend. Who can I fish with if all the pangeros are...
I want to rig up some rapalas for wahoo and am in need of your advise because I don't have a clue. Which type of wire do you prefer for...
Hey guys does anyone know of places that sell dry ice from tj down to Ensenada ?
Congratulations!! Great report...
Rapala X-Rap Magnums kick ass and catch just about any type of predatory fish. I would try different sizes ( 15,20,30 ) on 60 lb line max, at 3-5...
True. Climatology is very difficult because their calculations are subject chaos theory ( butterfly effect), which introduces legit uncertainty...
Indeed. There are lots of 'experts' on this site. Some of you guys dismissing scientists should tell your doctor how to do his s/her job. SMH.......
I'm in need of contacts in Abreojos. Can someone help me out with contacts for gorilla or rigo Zuniga? Also in need of hotel...
How much do they weigh?
It's a panga. Dude was prolly just playing around with this post
Thanks but bola is too hot for me.this time of year I may head down in November We'll stay in touch. Might go to ascuncion If wahoo go off.
Fished the 6, 240 and caught 8 yt,1 yft, and tons of Bonito. Most fish were on trolled rapalas, feathers, and cedar plugs. Most of the yt...
Thanks for the great report. That heat is unbearable at times. What kinda alleviated my suffering in the past was to bring a small soft cooler...
Hey guys, anyone selling pouring torpedo sinkers from 1-6oz?
Congratulations on a bad ass fish. What type of gear did you guys use? I'm debating between a mak 30 or mak 50.thanks
Awesome...you must be stoked
Awesome well written report. What a pleasure to read Thank you for taking the time.
You made some excellent points! However, regarding albacore precence, it may be due shifts in migration or overfishing I don't nor does anyone...
Looks like a great time! Can't wait till the heat subsides , I'll head down there again
Imo, if you seriously want to target grouper, it's a good idea to go super heavy- 200+ lb leader or heavy wire and 40+ lbs of drag. Use a medium...
They are opportunistic predators and are caught using a variety of methods which mimic their prey base. As such, they do in fact bite trolled...
Awesome! Congratulations on that badass fish. I have yet to catch anything like that Have gotten a lot of small ones in San Ignacio but I'm still...
No way. Enrique Daggett told me a story of a guy who did that.... might have been you. Did you think you were stuck on a rock?
Awesome catch! I had the same experience on a Tony Reyes trip. Hooked a yt on a yoyo which got inhaled by a grouper. I was fishing a makira 10 on...
Yeah I'm with Derek on this one. They have some crazy teeth and bite through 80 like nothing. I've seen others and have been bitten off by em on...
I got back on Sunday and the red tide extended all the way to Barnabe.
Nobody can predict how remnants of the storm can effect roads, especially...
Coolio... . I be down
Yup. When dropper looping there, I bust out the heavy gear (120 as well) . Last year we fished 80 and didn't stand a chance on several fish. More...
Haven't fished with him in a loooong time. I think he does mainly LR now.
Wow. Nice fish, Derek. Never got anything big from bola myself. Best thus far was a 25 lber with Enrique as well
Hey Copper. Nice glad you got em! We were the two dudes at the border. Our buddies were stuck in the x-ray place haha
Here's the 29 lber Pedro caught. It bit a little colt sniper right next to the boat.
The fish bit better in the morning and seemed to slow down...
Awesome. Hope you guys kill it. I usually do a few trips a year to bola, once in June then October or November. Can't stand the blazing heat there...
Fished with Enrique first day....great guy!
It's in there but not as bad as the rest of the place. Hope conditions improve for you guys.
Went to Barnabe and experienced the slowest fishing ever, ending our day with 1 yt, 2 trigger fish, and a tiny pinto bass. The water was 68...
Grab some fresh dead at an Asian market for $4 a lb. There ya go..
I'm still heading down with a group of 6. Leaving Thursday, fishing three days.
Condolences to the slained. May justice be served on the fucking animals responsible
Thanks for the great report! Were the fish up on top or down deep? Any word on the grouper and cabrilla? We'll be there on the 7th. Fishing with...
I'll take them. Pm sent
What's the weight breakdown on them?
Thanks for the bitchen report
Who else do you use besides Vonny's Fleet? Thanks
His brother Hector? Isn't Vonny's fleet the only game in town there or are there other outfits?
Anyone fish Punta Banda recently? I'm thinking of heading down there to fish with Beto again and am in need of some intel. Thanks in...
IMO, for lodging, the Old Mill is ideal because of it's location. It's right where all the action is and makes things way easier and enjoyable....
I like the Baja Catch by Neil Kelly and Gene Kira. Love the stories. I can't imagine what type of fishery it was in those days.
IMO, moon phases relate to fishing by influencing tidal flows, thus effecting current. Depending on topography, the difference between high tide...
Imo, Northern Baja is more for hard core fishermen who don't mind rustic and not so scenic places. For family vacations, it may be a good idea to...
Another captain down there sent me some pics of nice, large cabrilla he caught yesterday btw. I'll be there on first week of June.
What package deal?
Bring sheets, pillow cover, and a change of clothes. Enjoy your trip
More hot water and better toilets. Most boat's toilets are made for midgets. I don't know how the bigger guys even use those things.
I have a buddy who needs these rods Please contact Tim 858-775-2603 if you would like to sell.
Seeker Black Steel 6465H
Different sized sabikis
Torpedos from 4-20+oz
Yoyo and surface iron. Lots of them
Rapala x-rap 15,20,30. Bring several of each
AwAweso. Thanks ffo the repore. Where do you stay when fisfish there ?
Mostly yt and bottom fish so I'd bring 3 setups from 40-60 lb line
Yoyo irons like tsdyt4/0 or shimano flatfall.
I concur. Good boat with a great crew. I'd fish with them any day..
Incredible!!!!Congratulations on the most epic trip ever and thanks for sharing the experience.
Thanks for sharing that awesome trip!
It looks a lot like a fresh water drum. I caught them while finishing for white bass in Texas. They're not native to socal like most other fresh...
If fresh water, it's probably a drum. Family scaeinidae (spelling?) aka croakers
Hey Bob, sounds like a bad ass plan. Try out San Ignacio. The town is super chill and is akin to stepping back in time. Very mellow vibe and super...
I do. Cool meeting you. Yeah, ran into Juan on the water, I'll probably hook up with him next spring in Gonzaga. Fishing was slow but we had such...
I'm in Ontario so that would be awesome. Thanks so much and thanks to all the others who offered, much appreciated!!
October. Dunno know why I put 8, it's supposed to be 10. Thanks for the correction.
Fished both days with Pedro from Cangrejos in Bola.
10/7: Fished locally with the rest of the fleet and experienced slow fishing on baby-sized yt...
According to Pedro from Cangrejos Sport fishing, fishing is good on yt, cabrilla and grouper but bait is difficult to find. Hope this helps
Guys, I'm in need of legit outfits for chasing tuna out of Ensenada. I haven't fished out of there for years and only know of Vonny's fleet but...
Wow. We had to cancel due to the storm. I'm glad we didn't go to bola, otherwise, we'd be assed out. Hope everyone Down there is safe
Hi guys, I'm looking to buy some 80lb spectra. Please let me know if you want to sell some. Thanks
Nice to meet you and congrats on the win!
Wow.... Spectacular report and trip! Thanks for sharing!!
Wow. Epic trip report. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, I felt like I was there, Best report I've ever read. Thank you
Nice. No pics of this trip other than the stuff I cooked as we didn't catch anything out of the ordinary.
Yep, was cool talking with you guys. No dorado. The water has been warm enough for a while but their migrations are erratic like many pelagics so...
Fished 7/20 with Enrique and had limits of yt in about an hour. Fish were caught on live mackerel on dropper loops at the south end of La Guarda...
Great report and glad you had a great trip!! I'll be heading down tomorrow and fish with Enrique Thursday. I noticed a Bonito in the picture, were...
I'll be there tomorrow night. I've got Enrique on Thursday!! Can't wait to get back down there, a month is too long in between trips for bola haha...
Lol. Fish huggers smh....
I'd rather get get information from fellow fishermen because landing reps don't always provide legit Intel
Has anyone been on the freedom lately? How's the bunk room? Fished the boat a couple times last year and they had a problem with the AC or fan so...
Thanks Derek. I was gonna fish Sq this week but it seems fishing has been slow all year there with no signs of improvement. I may head to bola...
Thanks for the heads up. How's the cabrilla or grouper bite? Thanks and hope you slay
I drive down. Takes 14 hours with stops from Ontario. Depends on how you have going with you but pangas are from $300-$380 per day plus tips and...
I would do three Baja trips. I'd spend a grand each on two trips to bay of LA and the rest on a trip to San quintin. I used to do overnight to 8...
Great idea. Can someone post a picture of this setup? Thanks
Awesome! Variety and a trophy grouper to boot. Congrats...
Congratulations on a catch of a lifetime!!
Wow. Sorry to hear about your ordeal and glad you're back safe. I have always planned for these types of scenarios by putting most of money in my...
Ask for Domingo and Juanchys.
Have fun. According to Martin, the surf fishing is good at La Gringa. Good way to spend a couple hours in the evening
Awesome report. Enrique and his brother Alfonso are a blast to fish with. We had a great day in spite of conditions.
Likewise, cool meeting you guys. Yeah, conditions were nice at the island and the fish were corralling large schools of bait. I had a blast...
Fished with Martin at the south end of La Guarda for limits of yt from 10-14lbs average. Fish were up top and feeding aggressively so...
Their population is healthy so keep your limit if you want, it is legal. If you do choose to release them, the larger fish tend to be the proven...
Live or dead. If they're hungry, they'll eat it
No hook restrictions so make yourself several with various size hooks. I usually tie 5 hook ones.
You'll be fishing anywhere from 40-500ft so...
I would go with the following:
1. yoyo iron set up with 50lb line
2. A bottom set up with 50lb line and rock fish gagnions
3. A trolling set up...
The fish species that occur at the lowest level of a body of water. Think bass, rockfish, grouper, corvina ect
They work on a variety of benthic species so bring them
Bonito is totally underrated as a food fish and makes for killer sashimi, poke, ceviche and spicy tuna. Prep it properly upon capture by simply...
South America. I'd do the Amazon River and all its tributaries. You get to fish for a variety of neotropical species and take in an eco trip here...
Good for you! I've been thinking of that for years but have yet to pull the trigger. I've been doing 10-14 trips per year over a decade and have...
Sounds like a great time. Yeah, it's a shame that some of our border agents can be real ass holes at times. Upon entry at our border, I've been...
Congratulations on your first bluefin! Single speed Torium? Wow, you da man!
Congratulations on a trip of a lifetime!!
I've never had any issues over the years and well over a hundred trips.
They're still great. I had the USA made ones and now own the China made ones. Both are good. I'd get the gel inserts however, makes a huge...
Congratulations and great job! Welcome to BD and thanks for the awesome report
Go again. With 30 baits drifting throughout the water column, it's simply a matter of luck so you may be the guy with multiple trophies on your...
Excellent report and advice. Thanks..
Absolutely Leslie, Sq is the only place where we've never had a bad trip, irregardless of the fishing.
Great report Gabriel. We fished there this past weekend. Slow on exotics but we did manage some rockfish. The water was 64 at the 15 and 6 and it...
I spoke with my guy down there and he said he saw Dorado by the 240 while commercial fishing so you may want to bring some cedar plugs and...
Just got back from Guerrero Negro. Slow fishing but like your perspective, good people, good food and a great time. Great report BTW...
Bring your own squid. I usually get mine from the Asian markets. 99 ranch usually has good quality. There's a burrito person who sells coffee and...
Per reports from a captain down there. Lots of reds and no yt as of Tuesday
Doing good Bob. I'm doing my post-grad work so no more monthly baja trips. Got a trip targeting bsb in santarosaliita this Memorial weekend...
What's up Bob. There's a fish camp North of the hotel. We hit up an old pangero dude to take us out for the day. You could also try asking the...
My condolences. I fished with him and his son, Edgar a few years ago. Good guys
Awesome quality product and legit seller. Thank you!!
No boats or captains operating from colonet. There are a few guys who would run to colonet from Camalu but that was a one and done experience for...
That was freaking awesome, thanks for posting!!!
Back problems my ass. You just suck at fishing :)
I'll take it
Pedros pangas. You could make reservations via old Mill. You can get a panga for $220. It'll fish two comfortably
Lilo actually gaffing fish instead of missing them is new to me lol. Congratulations on an awesome trip. I was down there over the weekend and it...
Awesome report!!! Thanks for taking the time
They're a type of squat lobster so I bet these taste pretty good. Too small and too much work imo but probably good as a soup base. Can't hurt to...
Awesome... Congratulations, dude!!!
The fish are in the bay so you won't need gps for the bay fish. You'll see a flotilla just trolling around so head their way. We had one bite the...
I owned a star drag cedros I bought new. The drag wasn't precise throughout the drag range and it didn't produce enough drag. Took it in a couple...
Go down to the beach and hit up the guys by the pangas. If you stay local, you might get croaker, corvina and weird looking eels. If you get out...
I've seen squid, mackerel and sardines but it's sporadic so I wouldn't count on it.
Color might matter if you're targeting neotropical fish which may be able to see a broader color spectrum. Most fish are dichromates and cannot...
Yes but it ends 5/15 according to Angie
IMO, they form high concentration congregations and feed heavily in preparation for spawning anywhere from January to October. but like most...
Went to Erendira and Camalu this weekend so I thought I'd give yall a heads up regarding the road. It's open as far as Camalu but many businesses...
Damn... Hope this gets resolved soon. I'm gonna be on spring break soon so I need that road open. Mucho thanks for the heads up
It may be fry being swept via currents and establishing tiny little populations where conditions permit
You can get a great solid reel for that line class in the Daiwa sealine series. Solid and cheap. Win win....
I went there last Wednesday around 3 and was looking for some 40lb but all that was left was the stuff I didn't need like the lighter stuff
Brand new reel never had line on it. same thing you would get if you bought retail with everything else except it's not $230 plus tax
I have a brand new Calcutta 400B for sale. Never had line on it and comes with box, paperwork and everything else. $180 cash or shipping on you...
IMO, the rigs I bring would pretty much cover anything you can expect to catch in Sq. However, if tuna and Dorado are in the mix, I'd bring my...
I usually go with:
1. Makira 10 with seeker 665H with 50lb topshot for yoyo iron

I'd say PV, it's got the rest beat by leaps and bounds in every regard
I'm looking for tady 4/0, Salas 6X, 6X Jr 's and shimano butterfly jigs. Lemme know what you have.
Just to clarify. There is a a stipulation that requires two days fishing in order to get the free rooms.
Well, thx bud but I'm pretty set on the Hercules. I'm looking for a couple older 9/0's for my captain who's a Mexican pangero who fishes rf...
Wtb a few Penn 9/0's and a Hercules 7H. Lemme know what you have. Thx
Wtg!!! Glad you guys slayed 'em. We got into' em pretty good as did everyone else. I lost around 10 jigs to sea lions, snapped line ect but it...
Hell yeah.... Thx for heads up
IMO, it's not necessary to waste floro. It couldn't hurt but it wouldn't improve your odds either so I'd go with 50lb mono. No need to get all...
Whoops, just noticed that :) I'll be heading down to SQ Friday so I'll let ya know upon my return. Gonna fish Sat and Sun, hopefully some yt...
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Turtle Bay several hundred miles below around Asuncion?

Misconception? I hope I'm wrong but I don't see how any biologist would argue against that. At 100 individuals, I...
It may be commical to you but it is in fact happening. Blanket statements like yours never hold up. you see, it all depends on the fishery,...

WTG, Josh!! Glad you guys got into 'em. I fished with you on a 1-1/2. I was the dude with the ninja mask.

i'll take the 50 lb spool.
lol. Really dude? ok, i'll stop arguing with you because you obviosly know everything
Do yourself a favor and stop running your mouth about shit you don't have a clue about. Thousands of scientists have been studing this for decades...
Hit up Jose Pedro Torrest Felix on Facebook. He's a captain there and would be able to give you the most reliable information. Saw some pics of...
Blood coagolates quickly so I always make a slush by mixing seawater with the ice. Simply pull a gill and drop him in the slush. A couple bags of...
Pedro's is legit and Lilo is a fish killer who works knows his shit and works hard for you.
cool. I was the dude with the ninja mask .it was kinda slow at the 240 so we left to try deepwater codding but the current was ripping so we went...
Nice. Glad you made it safely and had a good time. We fished both days with Lilo. Slow for us this time as we went 2/3 on schoolie yt and a...
awesome...WTG and thanks for the great report!!
yep. Gonna be heading down and fishing a couple days. we'll be at the OldMill.

At least he had the pleasure of having you as a friend all those years and enjoying the awesome times you guys had. I bet he and his family are...
Niiiice. thx for sharing!!
Congratulations on the ling. That thing could have gone close to 30lbs if it were in pre-spawn condition.
I need 40 line mono. Looking for larger amount so met me know if you have some you don't need. thx
Be prepared to do all three and add dropper loop to it as well. Fish change their feeding behaviors so be prepared to it.
around 4x3 im guessing. its a big rack
I'd go with Captain Juan all the way!!
That's basically what a Lucanus jig is except yours doesn't cost $5000 but catches just as much or even more than theirs
At that weight it's heavy enough but I think it's too big for some of the reds and you'll end up losing many fish you would otherwise catch if you...
IMO, that will not be effective considering you 'll most likely fish 300+ft around Colonet. Bottom fish are not picky and will hit almost anything...
IDK about that. I was jumping on the Excel couple years back and needed some line added onto a reel last minute. Doug the owner proceded to add...
nope, all rods still here

Great job Juan!!!!!
How will this affect his operation? Will Lilo still be running trips? thx
Use a short 12-inch wire leader and attach your lure via a ring or swivel in order to impart more action on the lure.
He runs charters out of Salina when weather permits and Ensenada when it doesn't. Great captain and good guy to boot. I could give you his...
Nice. Love fishing with Beto, super cool guy. Congrats on a great trip and thanks for sharing!!
Met up with my buddy,Victor with Campos sport fishing for two days of awesome fishing in La Salina. we fished i[ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]...
It's a sweet ride and the crew rocks!
I'll take em
You got em? how much and when can we meet up? thx
I got the email as well. What a bummer, that boat and crew will be missed.
Anyone have Rigo Zuniga's digits? Help a brutha out please
please lemme know what you got. thx
Depends on how deep you're fishing. I usually switch to Jax jigs for depths greater than 300 ft as the ones I have are the heavy ones ( 8-12 oz)....
You'll have a great time on that awesome boat. I'm jealous!1
Congratulations on the first LR trip and first hoo!
Not much in the way of restaurants and such so come prepared with your own food.
Niiiice. How big were the sierra, Shari?
Thanks for the heads-up. I'm shocked none of the ass-kissing "do no wrong" clowns haven't tried to belittle you yet.
Damn that sucks! I have fished with him before and he's a cool guy. Hope he does something for you guys.
The Freedom is a great boat. Give them a try and see for yourself.
You got ripped off. There's no need to call and complain as the boat knew exactly what they were doing so simply choose another boat next time....
Nice BSB, amigo!!
I need some 5-inch ones and 1 and 1-1/12 oz heads. thanks [email protected]

Great report dude. WTG!!

I'll take em Frank. How would you like your payment? I'll need them shipped to Ontario as well. thx
Need some swimbaits in 4-inch size so let me know if you don't need anymore, thx
Nice! Good job on the lings, amigo
Sick report there. WTG!!!
I fish mainly Baja because of the cost compared to LR. I do about 10-14 Baja trips a year and only one LR trip a year on average. When it's all...
You ever drive down to Baja? You can fish LaBocana or Abreojos and catch the same fish you would on an 8 day for 1/4 the price.
Nobody is whining about it. I simply stated that it is what it is. Those who worked hard and can afford it should do so....good for them. Those...
LR fishing has become an elitist sport and the owners know that so they can charge whatever they want because they have a right to make whatever...
I'm no expert but I have had some success with iron on these fish because I love to fish iron and do so at every opportunity. You notice the...
Great job and thanks for the report
WTG buddy, you're DA JUAN.......
Awesome report there my man. Glad you got the double limits, congratulations!
Sick report, WTG!!
Niiiiice! What does it cost to do one of those? thx
Exactly!! If you have large, healthy sardines and you can get them to swim "correctly" on 50lb then throw the 50lb.
I fish 40lb straight mono ( iron ) on that reel and it worked fine for me on many fish from yt to bft so I would imagine it would work for you as...

Just got back from overnighter aboard the Pacific Star. Got 3 BFT on the 3oz megabaits
Looks like a red grouper. I caught a bunch bouncing megabaits in Cape Coralville a few seconds years back. I suspect you probably got this guy out...
Congratulations and thanks for sharing that awesome report!!
Where's it located?
Nah, it's one of those wooden ones with wheels at the base so you can roll around.
The crew got em at clemente
LOl. Thanks bro and cool fishing with ya!!
I got one that can accommodate 50 rods. Wooden. $70
$570 for a day and a half is a ripoff on ANY boat.

That totally sucks. My thoughts go out to his family.

Rapalas work so bring some x-raps 20's and 30's.all colors work so don't sweat it
We've had more success working them slower rather than faster and have caught mist of our fish going anywhere between 2-5 knots
When you fish poppers, do you rig them with a ring and swivel or straight tie them?
Agreed. IMO, too many guys overwork their yoyo's by cranking way too fast thus causing it to spin instead of kick side to side like it should. I...
Hit up captain Juan. Best skipper Imo and stay at Jardines. Old mill is a good plan b if Jardines is booked. Use Tecate crossing for your return....

Charkbait usually has great deals on reels. Check the weekly specials
No expert but I would go with Mak 15 or Penn International 16VSX
Yep. Pick up a used Penn senator 4/0 for $40, a medium action rod and some 40lb line and you're good to go. Don't have to break the bank for rock...
Nice job amigo. I'll be bringing down some amigos late Feb/early March.

Nice report! Salina is an awesome place to fish and Campos Sports fishing is the shit!! I highly recommend this operation!!
I just did couple hours ago.
IMO, overnights are a waste of time as the fishing time is drastically reduced. You're basically going on a long boat ride to fish a half day....
Awesome!! Thanks for the great report and pics.
Wow!!! WTG Juan
We gotta do it again. I had no idea of this awesome fishery and have unwittingly driven by it so many times so thanks a bunch for introducing me...

If you want WSB, I suggest booking an overnighter out of Long Beach. If you're set on SQ, expect Rock fish and halibut.
