We are headed to Ensenada on a buddies boat and plan to fish one of the days. Can anyone tell me if there a live bait to purchase or are we limited to what we can scratch up with Sabiki? We will likely plan to look for offshore for YT and BFT, but depending on how timing we may want to fish more local. I've pulled as much info off of Fish Dope, but also interested in any other info you are willing to share. We have FMM and Mex License squared away, I believe that is all we need since we will not be fishing Coronado's. Thanks

Lots of years ago Gringo Mike had a bait barge in front of the central harbor. I don't have any recent knowledge.

I was there two months ago and the bait barge is not open. You can find bait inside the break wall and south along the beach.

I'm in Ensenada on my boat and going out tomorrow. The last few days have been nice and weather pattern appears to be settling down, finally. No live bait for sale but you can make macs at the breakwall. If you want to run out 35 miles offshore and tag along with the SD boats you can maybe get into some tuna but nothing near shore.

Bottom fishing is great right now, banda bank, north end of island and up by the gas plant.

PM if you like, we are dialed in down here,
