I am heading there in Friday to fish into next week. We are headed to Gonzaga but I can't seem to find any GPS coordinates. As far as shore fishing if you to Rio Grande (it the store on the side of the road heading to Gonazaga Bay) they can tell you of some good spots.

WE are leaving on Sunday. Gonna stay at Tano’s camp at huerfanito. As for shore fishing, looks for a way down to the shore on the road south of puertecitos and go for it.

Just came back from Gonzaga on Wednesday. Decent action on Sierra Mackerel, Triggers, football YT, Cabrilla, Corbina, some decent pinkish rock fish - not sure what they're called.

Huachinango. Red snapper or at least that’s we thought they were. We just got back yesterday. We’re able to launch 4 days in a row. My buddy killed it. Me not so much. Fish just didn’t want my offerings seemed like all in all great trip. That’s my bud with the cabrilla

Those are the perfect sized pargo to gut and scale and just fry up whole. Tastes amazing... When we would invite our captains to dinner they would fight over who got to suck the fish eyeball out - they loved eating the eyeball- nothing goes to waste!

If someone has a good panga captain in Gozaga or Puerticitos can you PM or post it on the open thread? Maybe captain, contact info,and price if it's not asking too much...might run down next week depending on the wind/weather reports.

Also for a Panga, go to Rancho Grande and ask for "Chicken" or "Pollo".
He answers to both. He runs a tiller drive, bare bones panga. Bring all your own gear. He knows the area well as he is usually a scallop diver. Super nice guy, speaks little english, and gave us fun day last year. I think we paid him $250.

There is a great panga captain in Puertocitos his name is Nadie His house is at the north end of the runway. He is great! He is reasonable and very experienced.
