    Hey Baja, when I look at the current/final leader board on the official IGFA site, I see that the team from Mexico, "IGFA Offshore Champions 2010" got moved from 3rd, to a tie for first. Any insight as to what happened there?

    I think they have arrived?????

    Capesquan. Hard to say exactly, but if I understand it correctly what SHOULD happen is that the fish will hold, or build for the next couple months around some of the outer banks, Golden Gate and Jaime Banks being the a couple of the most popular. As the bait fish gather around the banks, so the...

    Nice trip, great photos! Congrats on the hoo especially. Sorry to hear about the boat theft. We have one down there and I always worry we'll show up and it will be gone. Three years so far no problemos.

    Great news ( I think) about Mexican Fishing Licenses

    I usually just buy mine in the marina the first day of fishing. Quick, easy and with cash. But thanks for the links, may buy mine on line this year.

    Baja Pirates of La Paz - October 4, 2010

    It would be nice to see more catch and release practiced down that way for all the reasons already mentioned. As for who is to blame, someone has to step up and say "we don't kill marlin here!". When we fish Quepos Costa Rica, they just don't allow it. Pretty clear upfront, they don't want you...

    Yeah, good point Karma. I actually checked in with Picante while I was there, thought about booking on one as my 24' boat couldn't take the whole fam damily. Given the quote, I decided to pass. They were proud of the fact that "we're the highest cost boats out here". Justified it by saying they...

    Hey PSW. You mention not wanting to go out on an "older Bert", but thought I would mention a great ride out of Cabo. Renegade Mike runs a 31' Bertram out of Cabu San Lucas. If you want to see what can be done with an already classic boat, check him out. He recently rebuilt a 31' top to bottom...

    Geez Jaydog. I know the real estate biz in tough in San Diego these days, but ease up a bit. Not like the guy ran over your pooch or something. I'm sure if he'd been acting anything like your characterization, he'd have paid the piper.

    Garmin Satellite Module - Buy or Pass?

    Thanks Gordo. It was an epic day. First three hali to the boat, 70, 75 and 94 lbs on three rods. #5 miles offshore in 600 feet of water... Followed it up with 6 lingers all over 20 lbs, and the 30 black sea bass. 425lbs of fish when all was said and done.

    Garmin Satellite Module - Buy or Pass?

    Thanks guys. I guess I can look at it as a money saving purchase. $29 a month for real time weather and surface temp info will likely save me enough fuel to pay for the service because I won't be wandering around looking for warm water! (really honey, it will save me money!)

Truth is I don't think I'll use the satellite portion, so any thoughts as...

    Yep, I agree with that. Swiftshore isn't quite as deep, maybe 450-500 where we fish, but drag a couple sharks up from that depth and you know you've been fishing. And like you say, plenty of chickens there. We fish deeper water, usually 600 ft. plus, and do well, but we decided against going up...
