Assuming covid-19 allows, I am considering a fall trip to Bahia de los Angeles to fish from my kayak. I am looking at an early October trip. Any information that could be provided will be greatly appreciated.

Should I stay at the Villa Vita? At this stage of my life I enjoy a shower, bed and AC after fishing.

What can I expect to catch from the yak in early October? Keep in mind that I am an old man and cannot paddle long distances. I will likely stay within a few hundred yards of where I launch.

Thanks,

Paul

Gets very windy at times, don't chance it, head home or find a cove, sometimes the winds will persists for days. Stay safe and enjoy the fishing. Carry extra water.

Weather and wind can change FAST there, carry a few extra items on board in case you have to over-night on one of the islands. More than a few have paddled out in AM glassy conditions and never returned when a westerly suddenly reared its ugly head. LA bay is kinda the "Bermuda Triangle" for kayakers .......so to speak.

My advise.. bring a tent & sleeping bag & cooler.. see what the weather has in store for you & enjoy.. maybe a fisherman will tow you down the coast and you can work your way back, love MX! Found a hungry grouper one time

Yellows on the surface between Smith and la Gringa (AWESOME). Lots of spotties, cabrilla, triggers etc. Weather can be great or a disaster. That is a transition month and the winds from the west can come up in an instance. ( I saw a toyota with a high camper get pushed over on its side because of the winds that time of year.. Sounded like a hurricane coming down the canyon!) Back in the late eighties or early nineties, a whole group of kayakers died when the 60mph winds come up suddenly as they headed to Smith island. Please take these wind warnings starting in Oct seriously. A wind ap might save your life. Did not mean to be a downer but that is the first thing that popped in my mind regarding Kayaks in Oct/LA Bay.

Thanks to all for your comments. I have heard stories of LA Bay's winds and will stay very close to the beach!
