Just back from an amazing trip to Bahia de Los Angeles. We had no idea all hell would break loose in the states as we left but yikes, it certainly did! Headed south down Highway 5 and after a quick hello to Captain Juan Cook in Gonzaga Bay (we also saw Juan on the Cortez our second day with his gang of Cabrilla Hunters!) , we continued on and yes, finally, FINALLY the road is complete to Chapala. If you have driven this road over the past 25 years like I have it has mixed blessings...but until the next hurricane comes and rips it up it is stunning. Fished three days with Captain Joel Prieto Jr and he put us on the fish...big time. First day was some Yellowtail in the morning near Isla Perdida and then went a bit further for some Sawtail Grouper. Came back to the reef in the afternoon and it was Lake Cortez...no wind...clear blue sea and birds crashing and Yellowtail everywhere on the surface. Since we had very little live bait everything was casting and irons...but every cast was a strike, a fish, or five of them following it back to the boat. Second day headed north for some Huachinago and caught a few smaller ones and a freezer filling amount of Gold Spotted Bass. Final day was some nice Baqueta near Las Animas and then more yellowtail in the area of the first day. Three calm days in spring on the Cortez...who would have thunk it? Many thanks again to Joel and his first mate Jesus...definitely a trip to remember.
