    I have to think that the next evolution of long range will be Mothership trips to Cedros in purposefully built/modified craft. If Cedros is a port of entry, no need to stop in Ensenada. And since you do wnter a foreign port, no need to be US flaged.

    The Polaris Supreme used to have skiff trips to Cedros. I think he carried four. Mostly for calicos. Maybe he will start doing them again.

    I'm not talking mothership with its own skiffs, I think one that brings rich American clients down to be services by local pangas.

    Think about it, no flying in puddle jumper, unpack once in your stateroom. Rig up atuffbon the way down, quality eats.

    One could even do longer trips that use other locations with a local fleet of pangas. The variety of fish might be limited and the offshore tuna would not be an option, but the ship needed is much more an off the shelf kind of thing than a sport fisher. An older yacht or oil crew boat

    This is all about politics!! its not about fishing!! The seals eat more yellowtail every year they we could ever catch with rod and reel.. There is a group located at Cedros that has connections in Mexico City that got the the new rules put in place. Just watch for a new operation not with Pangas but with very nice american built boats..AKA parkers,gradywhites. you know what I mean.. I heard the sportboats might get a chance to return with a mexican guide or a fishing out of there local pangas.. The locals are all in favor BUTTTT . the group with connections believe with out the sportboats the can dramatically increase there new business..Of course there running under the Umbrella to save the Yellowtail..

    Have you read the wording of the closure or are you just basing your post off of hearsay?

    The wording is pretty transparent in that it mentions the closure is just as much to protect the interests of the local business owners\residents as it is to help the fish populations.

    Of course it says it's to protect fish populations....it would be awkward if they just acknowledged the new regulations were created to keep the Americans out.

    Currently as Cedros, Natividad, Benitos as part Mexican bioshere are off-limits to American sportsfishers. We are hoping SAC will be able to resolve this? I can't help but think that part of the entire Mexican action is tied to the dispute that began in the San Quinten area between local fishermen the San Diego Fleet.

    Kiss cedros goodbye. They have closed it off to long range boats. You can drive there or fly there. There's already too many outfitters and gringo outfits also. Fishing is good, but when it's dead, it's really dead. The season is short.

    As more and more bait is depleted, the seals will become a problem.

    I think the fly in option will be the best way to fish cedros.

    Is Chester's within the biosphere?

    Ok The closure affects size and as I have been told it is not even in effect yet and also Long Range Trips will do skiff trips to Cedros as well Bit Again they will cooperate with the operations on the Island

    Like almost every cruise ship in the world. I cant think of one that is US flagged, but I dont hear people ranting about safety.

    We do a great job at a lot of things in this country but thinking no one else doea anything well or good is just bigotry.

    I will be doing a fly in trip in August and will see what the locals have to say about this.....I had heard the last time I flew in that this was going to happen and I didn't think the locals had the horsepower to pull it off...guess I was wrong.
