    Eyeing the late May Baja coast trip on the Tomahawk. Thoughts regarding how conditions and bite is in along the coast during late May. Thanks.

    Wait until summer. Late May is a transition time in our waters.

    Excellent time of the year to fish with light crowds...It will be a trip targeting early BFT and falling back on Baja Coast Yellowtail

    I say go for it! I've fished the Memorial Day Weekend for the past three years, and the fish are definitely there. If they feel like biting is another matter . . .

    We had big bluefin within a dozen feet of the stern of the Condor last year on several occasions, but they were not interested in anything that we threw at them. They would look at you with a beady eye and flip a fin -- you knew what they were saying! I was tempted to go full pirate, put a knife in my teeth and dive in. Then I remembered that I can't do that, anyway.

    But coastal yellowtail and such are always a backup plan, and Eric is always focused on finding fish that want to play. I say GO as often as you can afford to whenever we get an El Nino year, because they are a special situation.
