Just got back from my annual long range down in Baja. Offshore water temps were down and weather was up some but we found a couple pockets with decent grade Bluefin. I got this BFT to bite a sardine on a long soak. The fish was 73lbs and was landed with an Xrodz 40lb Stick and a Fin-Nor Marquesa 2 speed with 40lb test. Dodo's and YFT were plentiful and mostly football sized but the boat picked a few keepers. Wahoo conditions were favorable down south but we never found them on the troll. Turtle Bay, Baja was 72 degrees and full of birds, dolphin, whales and bait. Yellowtail fishing was wide open for 2 days. I pulled out the jigging rod and a smaller Marquesa 16 and killed many YT on a new Shimano Flat Fall butterfly jigs - I forced our bait loving deckhands to believe in the iron. Unlike the useless Waxwings these new Flat fall Jigs are the real deal. The Bluefin, Yellowfin, Dodo's and Yellowtail took them on a cast on slide and vertically jigged on bait stops. If you ever get weary of the same 20-30 lb albies year after year I highly recommend heading south to pull on some big yellows and BFT.
