    Afternoon fellow BDer's,

    Short report for last weeks fishing last week in BoLA...
    First part of the week was a little slow due to the green water and the fish had been hammered by the fleet hitting right out front for days on end. So the fish scattered and when we found the biomass it was south, especially on Thursday and Friday. Those days were what a jig slinger lives for.. WIDE OPEN YELLOWTAIL ON THE SURFACE IRON. For 2-3 hours in the morning it was full speed, all you want yellows. These fish were gangster too, straight 24-36# fish with bad attitudes and intentions. Many boats missed the bite getting bait. All flavors of jigs were working but the Blue OCT-10 was the best performer for me, including one beast I could not stop with 22# of drag and my thumb clamped down on the spool. He straight up dogged me.! 50-60# leaders here as the fish are not shy. Was changing leader 4-5 times per day as we were fishing close to reefs. If you want the hot bite that's going on right now, skip the bait and go throw the jig. No pics as everyone knows what a yellowtail looks like and I was busy hustling...

    Hopefully the info will help someone. I should also add we were fishing with Pedro and Cangrejos Sportfishing, our home away from home. Give them a shout if you need/want to fish in one of their Pangas.

    Roads are in nice shape with only a little wait time south of Ensenada. Military checkpoints were simple and fast. Road crews were out in force fixing the potholes.

    Viva Mexico..!!
