    On a working excursion to Baja Sur, I had the opportunity to slip away and fish with long time friend Capt Rubin in some mixed near shore areas off the northern MagBay region.

    He made bait, medium Sardinas in seconds with his trusty cast net and we were off. Working hard bottom and rocky structure in 77.7 degree off colored blue green water we were treated with sightings of hammerhead shark, leaping marlin and hard pulling Groupers.

    In two four hour days of fishing we landed 8 Grouper of various sizes. I'm looking forward to fishing again soon with one of the most knowledgable and friendly waterman in Baja. Thank you Rubin for the amazing adventure and friendship.

    The fishing was truly amazing in size and scope in 45' - 60'. Also l landed world class Kumamoto Oysters to round out the feast of Neptune.

    Nice fishing Rory. We are going to start doing a few grouper specials if there
    is a demand for it but so far every one wants to chase the wahoo and tuna.
    Did you get these the same day I saw you. Next time down stop by for a
    beer have people interested in property in Scorpin Bay. Are the oysters from
    Steves farm look realy nice. Bob magbayoutfitters.com

    Sorry I missed you Bob. Your new Delta looks to be a really nice fishing platform for heading to the offshore banks down there.

    The Grouper fishing isn't for everyone but boy do the results taste good and the strike is an amazing experience.

    My schedule was pretty tight this trip and I was hoping to check out your sports bar in town & share some tacos . I'll see you in a few weeks and would love to check out the new rigging your putting into the vessel.

    No problem just the 3 probably use the Fuego 26 boston wahler with 2 140 suzukis
    other option the Aguila 40 modutec and do a 2.5 day live aboard then you could
    fish for grouper and wahoo. Sleeps 5 so not sure if you have a couple of friends
    that could go along with you if not we can work on some pricing that will make
    you happy. Also have secured parking and a house we rent. PM me or
    email [email protected] thanks Bob

    There is one top Grouper guy in the area, everyone already knows Ruben makes his living amongst these giants.

    The rigging is also key to success. I lost one that straightened out a s.s. forged 14/0 J hook.

    My guys are planning a run after seeing & tasting the results.

    My 2 cents worth, the grouper are getting smaller and smaller each year. How about a self imposed limit on the catch......
