Fished with Gordo Banks Pangas out of San Jose Del Cabo and the fishing was excellent! Started out the morning with fresh dead sardines and catching moonfish for bait. Took maybe 30 minutes and we had 15 or so, so off we went.

This was the first fish on the live moonfish.

The girlfriend wanted a picture with the amberjack. After awhile she got it up and the fish takes a big crap on her!

All the bottom fish took the moonfish as bait. Looks like a pancake but silver. I think the real name is a lookdown or something like that. Everything else took the dead sardines.

Dutra -
what were you using when you caught the wahoo?
trolling live bait - lures? we'll be out with Eric's crew in a little over 3 weeks -

    HAving never been to Cabo, what would a day fishing on the pagas set a boy back? Do they have tackle or do you bring your own? Having caught my share of AJ's I know they are tanks. I've caught bucos of 40-50# fish but never one like your 79#.

    Thanks for the replies. No fish were caught trolling. Tuna and wahoo were caught on dead sardines drifting. Snapper and amberjack were caught on live moonfish we caught in the marina. Capt Jesus on the "Katie". By far the best ive ever fished with!

    The panga with Jesus is $250 plus bait. They have the tackle but you can use your own if you want. My back hurt like hell at work today!
