I'd say now through December is usu best.
It's often a half season or so late here compared to elsewhere.
Last morning and we fished down the line to the E. Slow start but we had a couple hours of yoyo around baitballs. We both got rocked and had...
Found some tail.
3 carbon copy 37in fork and 2 others spit hooks. 100ft
3weeks but it ends Tuesday. All the boxes ticked except for a wahoo but...
Going down the line tucked in tight today. Anything outside the islands has got wind. The partys over for the pelagic hunts right now. Maybe...
I see you didn't mention bonito. You are in luck! Lol
I hope it's all sorted out for ya by the time you arrive. My dad got a hog calico on the...
Well it was bound to happen. One of those bonito turned on the afterburners and morphed into a solid 20# class yellowtail.
Super mixed up sea...
Yes. All over. I'd show you the GPS from above San Pablo to below San Hipólito but I'd have to redact too much. The yt are pretty absent...
Today was a different tack. We decided to hug the shelf in that 76+ water and look for a hoo or two.
Just after we put out the lures working...
Well we broke the duck.
Swell is a little large and the launches are clogged w the pangueros boats but we made it out and first found a patty w...
The one w the major 5ft dorsal I didn't get a close enough shot
Not dropping down but the halis are wfo from shore on an incoming tide. I caught a few CA legals (22+in) the other day on krocs and kastmasters...
Well someone put my bonito reports to good use. On the way outside today we spotted at least a half doz baby makos finning along and a couple...
I will add the bait and bonito extend to off San Hipólito but I shook it up a bit and got a log cuda on the jig too. The bay was 68 in the...
Yeah they like those too. My dad says maybe we should try for a line class record bone.
"But do you really want to spend 30min on one?"
Still here so I'll add to the thread. My dad and I have covered some water in the tinny w only a couple down days and I can confirm from Punta...
I'm in Asuncion visiting my dad and we've been searching for the summer pelagics in his tin boat. No luck so far finding the right ones beyond...
A few short years ago in the times of milk n honey, super mega el nino and the blob, we also had drought. W drought there isn't runoff of poop...
Coincidentally it's in my sig.
And since on mobile there are no sigs:
"What possest [sic] a farmer like you to set foot in a boat beats me."...
So good Juan! Thank you for all the fotos of fish. You scored con Sr Duran. Do you know another name for the bachocho? Is it a grunt? Thanks...
Yeah but the fish...
If the experiences match the website Im good. Thank you.
Any recent Southwest experiences w rod tubes to PV from OC? Are they still 5050 on the $75 rod tube charge each way?
Thanks for that. Sick shot w the reflection in the hull.
Ive seen yellowtail doing this at the Coronados before, but I never heard tuna doing it too.
Good report Steve and Eclipse sounds like theyre on...
Yes La Jolla is unique and close w a pop of homeguard yellows and others.
No not the 1010 but Ill take that beer on the inner banks thanks. If...
This is a perfect Cliffs version. It is not better on mobile. Give US the choice on what looks best on our device(s). You will never have it...
Cool trip. Thanks for posting all the pix. Especially Juans/Sharis of the dinner party. I see a rare pic of my dad in his environment.

Random radio call:
"Anybody know how to get these puddlin tuna to go?"
"Chunk em up!"
So I did.
Thanks to steveooo for the...
I just caught bones and green jacks on a kroc. Both were a bit large to mess w a sabiki full on the yak. Most will destroy your sabiki anyway....
You can drag a belly strip (of bonito) too, to locate them.
Get it. You get the auto insurance right? So what happens when you get in an accident and youre not in the country legally? That insurance...
Alright you made your point. Now what about white seabass? They're CROAKERS! !
Not that it should matter in this thread but canned jurel is jack mackerel not yellowtail jack.
Tasty w crackers n smoked cheese bait.
Threw a 4" BigHammer at some boiling bass on straight tied 40#spectra right along shore (Cedros) and ended up way out here in the bottomless....
Thats what the doctor said too. Once a day is healthy.
Considering how hard Dana gets hit I was stoked to get that big momma there. Personally...
^Them's fightin werds, Marshall!
23" off DP, today. And still off DP, tonight.
You may not want to take up kayak fishing. Yahoos have been doin that for decades. Im afraid Ive just gotten used to it. It has improved though...
Don't forget all the "good" the MPAs are doing. Theorhetically there should be infinite 10"-12" (5 years of new MPA) unmolested calicos since the...
Any rashes or swelling?
I've had a bad dose of YFT processed in La Paz. I'm not a very allergic person, like some with histamine responses...
I was wading just N of La Fonda catching BSP's and got to be about shin to knee deep on the gently sloping beach. When I went to turn around to...
You mean to tell me I just now learned a chihuil is just a jive jack mack?
What a slut.
Sounds like only a units issue.
14C is 57.2F, which I would believe.
I'm with ya, Nardo. F 'em! Kayaks are supposed to be self sufficient. Tie off? WTF? Better stick to the bays and harbors if you can't handle...
I found this pic a long time ago and I'm sorry I can't give any credit to the photog. It leads me to believe that yes, they sometimes do:
RIP Qualifier 105.
Thanks John for the many years. I took my first 5-day on the Q, and got to fish and catch at the 'lupe. I appreciate your...
#2 Ribera Cabrilla. (aka Panama Graysby)
Did one get away?
Coney Island Whitefish
Thanks for catching the sarcasm.
Why not Steinbeck Island?
But I still wouldn't want dfg to tell me what it was, if you know what I mean.
That looks like a canary r/f to me. Probably better you didn't let a dfg verify that.
No issues. We were all on the beach already and rigging when the park ranger came and opened the gate. All he did was smile and wave. It was...
They get bigger. :rofl:
Way to supplement the protein when groceries are getting more and more expensive!
BTW, nice screengrab from the mast...
I'm envious, but not too proud to beg.
I've been on a few of these trips. You need gear you can throw all day, day after day. You will catch a lot of fish. Also you need a reel that...
Great report. Sometimes I read a report and say "I gotta do that!". This was one. Thank you.
Was the shuttle from La Paz included? I 2nd...
Cedros, 45#, took a 4" Red Calico Hunter BH w/ 1/2oz head straight tied to 30# powerpro. AbuGarcia reel, 6-15# bass stick.

^AKA Ribera Cabrilla
The googley eyed fish is a type of grunt.
Top report. Thanks!
HO-LY crap. The planets are aligned and 2012 is close. I got one too. I'm scared; the end is near.
I'll take 3.
Great day. Couldn't ask for flatter conditions. And a bag o fillets ta boot.
Nice ID job, too! But this is a jack mackerel not jack smelt...
Gringos aren't allowed to take crustaceans or mollusks in MEX.
unibutter the hooks.
En Ingles, that fish is a pomfret.
Captain Kurt caught one a few years ago. I stole the pic (from BD) at the time because I didn't...
Interesting. I can't find anything. AFAIK, it's size limits that is the issue. Like baiting a 'cuda. If it's 28", you can retain it and could...
Every year's different, obviously. Last year a friend and I baited up at the point and went out W as far as the Dana Pt buoy then bent...
I think the council should be dealing with the water quality more. The frequent sewage spills and outdated sewer infrastructure, not to mention...
This is the only current SMR (no take) in Laguna Beach at this time.

Back in my youth in MN, we would catch Rock Bass, which look like a hybrid of the two.
You got a cool life.
WTF? It's early May. It just broke the 60F mark. That's LAGUNA!
It's all wrong, man, all wrong, but so right. Awesome! Stoked for you!
If those dimensions are correct, that comes out to almost 16#. That seems high, but certainly over 10#.
"Talk to me Goose."
Nah, not crazy. Diligent. Actually, when you arrived out there, you passed by me first thing. The skip and I got eye...
I knew I would have some idea who you diligent BB'ers were. You covered some water! I've seen Tight Lines before out there, too.
lean fish and sallow water.
Not to mention raped it up at dusk.
I dunno, I prefer to OWN both my paddles.
This looks more like a senorita.
I never noticed Rizzo's until the last few years. But I've seen them pretty close to shore.
chihuil = jack mack
Sheesh, ya had to ask?
Yeah creepy. Straight outta War of the Worlds.
Effer hit a trolled deep diver.
I assume you had a Mex guide? And you weren't taking them for meat.
From mexfish.com. Not the final word, but more often right than wrong. I...
Which came first, the Humboldt current or the Humboldt squid?
And second, aren't humboldts technically another gringo no-no in Mex?
Man that's nice!
I was guessing (red) crab. Thanks.
Excuse my ignorance, but what is this?
Someone got a cow.
This is the greatest, most exclusive, livin' large pic I've ever seen! What a set-up. Holy carp is right. Thanks for posting.
That bay was paved w/ hali's when I was there in '01.
Although the escalera wasn't there yet.
Thanks for the cool report!
Flyer, maybe? The long rigid part of the wing?
Thanks AC for the time to write it up!
But how many of us still got the Red Ryder?
That's been done too jaydog. Granted I'm not as mobile as a PB, but, heading them off isn't as hard as you'd think. Time just slows down and it...
Once you are out there with yaks strapped to your bow, you're going to say to yourself, "why the F did we bring these stupid yaks?" The added...
It's been done.
Your visibility to others is the scary factor. I know a couple guys went to the 9, and I've done a couple 20mile looks out of...
Only one I ever got was from shore on a cut anchovy. ???
Thanks for the pix!
Vaya con suerte, AC.
That grouper is amazing. We were there the week before (Q105) and with the cold water and whipped surface I would not imagine groupers other than...
Awesome report. I felt the lead-in of the recovered rig. That's amazing!
Well on a yak trip N of LA Bay, up toward Remedios, we put ashore for a stretch and decided to explore some caves. Inside one of the caves was...
I don't know AC, that phrase isn't something I'd hear in Mex, and I would be very skeptical. Liability in MEX? Who they kidding?
This was obligatory for LJ Jackpots back in the day.
I've heard of GSB off the ridge off Mag Bay, but never as far N as the Coronados.
It's a real bass, with calicos, barred, and...
I guess I can dog-pile your non-seabass report with another one. We were on the water, paddling to Little Harbor by 1300 Friday. We needed to be...
Thanks for that. The windswell was big enough that we disappeared now and then. I got better bass inside versus out, but you had to keep your...
It was 27, not hundreds, and we paddled from and to Cat Harbor. We didn't find them either. Which boat were you on?
Biggest midshipman I've ever seen. Cool.

Nice spine, inches from your pinkie. Dude, that's 'CORE!

M/V Santa Rosa, you've brought some sage words...
SO WHAT WAS IT, THIRD OR FOURTH FOR THE WEEK?
I know that's 1/3 the way to double digits, but it should be easy to count.
Too bad yakslam. Missed it by >< that much.
Sounds like a good haul for both botes.
Alright, find the Condom on this chart:

PM sent allerting you of your dad's use of your BD account.
Shame! Probably thinks he'll end up in WON, too, huh?
The other guy was more toward the end if the N jetty. He was torqued across his deck landing a fish and he got his bow pushed over by some chop....
Matt, you just caught a case of the Krab's!
I knew you when costamako:rofl:
Very "Log From the Sea of Cortez"ish. I was really hoping this wasn't going to be a tie-in to kidjurel's nightmare.
I can think of at...
Way cool of you to do the real-time product testing. Those buggers look effective. One question:
What was the fpb (fish per bait)...
Does the odds computation factor in the fact that Arne may have lost his fav rig?
We're too busy watching re-runs of The OC and Laguna Beach.
And staring at avatars.
Very nice, thanks.
The question is:
Does Robert offer white shark insurance?
Teahupo'o = gnarly
Love the bloody bleach bottle.
Talk about paradoxical.
Nice! Hope for all.
But duuuuuude, I'm trippin on the horizon.
Hey whitefish, is that you lying on the deck next to the rail?
That's really a respectable attitude.
But com'on, you were using words never even heard before, weren't you?

We do, but how about some numbers?
And Far Side characters, and Simpson's characters, and South Park characters...

THAT, I can help with.
With IE closed, go explore your HDD and find your favorites.
Arrange by name in their directory(ies).
But the question is:
Why does IE ignore them?
MS just seems to pimp itself with the "e"s.
If so, what's your bookmark for BD look like in the list of bookmarks?
Just wondering, seems a little...queer to me.
Hmmm, me too. But no BET for me.
Dan IS the man and the Audax brought/brings up 'da fish!
Glad you're alive Dan.
