Got into loreto yesterday and fished today with Francisco with fly fish loreto. Really wanted to catch a rooster on the fly rod. Weather is nothing short of perfect. no wind till about 11:00, then just a comfortable breeze.
never seen so much bait in my life. As far as you can see in every direction sardina. Every bird and gamefish is plugged. Fat and full of sardina. I caught several cabrilla and a few lady fish. Saw one former of yt all day. It came up close and I got two shots at it. Had a follower but no take.

Most yt coming on the dropper loop in 100 plus feet or yo yo. No bueno on the fly.

this is only my second time in Loreto, or Mexico for that matter. this Place is badass. I’m here a week and fishing DIY the next few days, then back with Francisco next week for another go. Saw some small roosters cruising but no takes.

when This bait becomes less plentiful it will be really good here.

Been there a few times with the wife. Great place. If you can find a place that does day trips there's a good one that goes to see a bunch of cave paintings in the moutains outside muleje. Check it out if you have time.

Got six on the fly rod from shore today. All small 1-1.5 lbs. they are fun on the fly. Only wish they were 5-10 pounders. Can’t complain though, roosters from the beach on the fly any size is nice.

    Loreto is great for yellows, they must have been jugged.

    Mixed bad today of stuff I’ve never caught. Triggerfish, pargo, frigate fish?, more cabrilla, trevally and lady fish. All on the fly. YT really slow right now here. Although Francisco managed one on bait. (Francisco had a bait on the DL that got bit). More DIY exploring tomorrow. Stand by....

    Holy shit... just ate. Brought the “ frigate fish” or pinky and a couple cabrilla to the hotel and gave them to the cook. The pinky fish was made into cheveche. The cabrilla was grilled. Told him i would be back in 30. For 32 bucks, I got this and a few Coronas for me and wifey. I tipped him more than that. I’m ready to move here..... fuck it was good.

    Haha, you would probably rethink the move come July/August. Goat Mummy says its hot as balls. ( Wife took this picture along the road up to the mission a few weeks ago, dried goat hanging out on the couch)
    But yeah, fisherman's paradise for sure.
