So on the 2.75 or 3-day trips it says two full days of fishing from sunup to sundown.. How much more fishing time do you get on a 5-day in comparison to a 3-day
I agree about not fishing able to fish Cedros or Benitos. The 5 day trip is not the same as it used to be. They should make them all 7 day instead of 5 day, Then you have a lot of options.Which boat? 5 days are a weird length without Cedros/Benitos option IMHO. Technically you can fish some Baja coastal spots or our local islands and offshore. Also with bluefin in the mix and real night bites a thing, the concept of “fishing time” is a little weird as it is potentially a 24 hour window during certain times, hence the creation of the 2.75 day trip to take advantage of the first night of fishing rather than traveling during that time like a normal trip would be. Id look at a 5 day as 100% more time on the boat than a 2.75 day, but potentially a lot more travel time than fishing time if they do the things mentioned in the posts above. Most longer trips leave around noon day of departure and get back early the last day. So a 5 day is about one 1/2 day of either fishing or driving, 4 days sun up to sun down of possible fishing time and a 6am arrival on the 5th day. I’ve caught fish on the first day of those trips, but more often than not it’s bait up and start heading somewhere far with day 2 being the first “real” day of fishing.
