    You’ll be glad to did, Jon. IMO it is better than the big city of Cabo. No prostitution, spray paint on the wall or any kind of criminal activity. It’s truly an open door community with genuine, friendly people.

    Fantastic trip, but you left out the meaning of your report "Title"?

    All is good. I have never fished Loreto, I have fished Mulege, La Paz, East Cape and Cabo. Still have Bay of LA and Loreto on the bucket list.

    How come no Yo Yo Iron fish?

    Thanks, Corey. I do feel lucky.

    This was my first time back to LTO since 2013. Watching over my dad with a flurry of health issues at 83 took priority. He was the one who introduced me to LTO 25 years ago. After losing him in 2016, it was finally time to return where we made so many memories.

    Here we are on a double hook-up on my first trip! Those are Seeker trolling rods with 50 lb mono. I was beside myself!

    There were a couple guys on one boat on day one that caught 8 fish in about 2 hours on the srambled egg surface iron. We didn't have any yellow iron as this was definitely the right choice. I bought a 4.4 oz yellow Megabait for day two, got bit right away, and my lousy albright pulled and it was over. Back to the dependable macs!

    It's a 1 hour 45 minute flight from LAX, and a 6 minute drive from the LTO airport to town. This should be an easy item to remove from the list, Cory!

    Thanks for the Post...I need to get back there as well. What does a Panga go for a day currently? I haven't been down there in 30 years so I'm sure its changed.

    I work directly with my friend who charges $250 for the day. Through a hotel the same panga will be about $300. If you work direct with the capitan, his tip would be included in that amount. Through a hotel where they will take at least half, so the capitan could use a tip.
    Considering where you're fishing and incredible species, a steal would be an understatement, IMO.
