Spent the weekend down in Loreto with a nice group of friends and family last weekend. Weather was absolutely epic and the little town is as clean and charming as I remembered it over 15 years ago. The trip was just 3 nights but it was full of memorable activities. Anyone looking to get away to a gem of baja and be able to keep the lady at bay with a gorgeous resort in a charming little fishing town should take note and try to make a trip in the future. Loreto and La Mision hotel will not dissapoint. Think of awesome fishing, diving, snorkling and a 5 star resort with amazing service and staffing for a fraction of the bill. This place is a baja paradise and very easy on the wallet, best of all they were able to cater to all of our groups needs. Flying in Hotel la Mision, one of the baja's best kept secrets... LA MISION Saturday morning we had a group fishing trip. After friday night we lost a few anglers but 6 of the total group of 17 woke up with dreams of screaming drags and perfect conditions. After watching a memorable sunrise we headed out to the marina, which was just a couple hundred yards from the hotel. We split the 6 anglers over 3 pangas and headed out around 8am. sunrise over the cortez The marina was nice with a really good launch ramp for private boaters. The view of the hotel from the water We were able to get great bait which consisted of a healthy crew of "caballitos" aka big eyed skad / google eye's for 20 bucks from a local panguero. We got about 15 pieces of bait for 20 bucks.. after that we made the run in perfect conditions to Punta Almeja about 30-35 miles north up the beach, I partnered up with my buddy Kat for the trip, the wife stayed back getting massage and tanning at the hotel We made our 1st drift and got into a great bite from the 1st drop Here is Kat with a nicer model More Hamachi carnage I got my limit in about 45 minutes and began drinking beers and talking smack to the other panga guys. We ended up with limits for 6 anglers in just under a couple of hours, we were back at the marina by 11:30. Everything was cleaned,vac packed, flash frozen and brought back to share with our respective families. We brought a couple fresh one's back to the hotel as well and had them make sushi rolls, ceviche and hamachi plates for us. The hotel restaurant did an excellent job with that. trio of fresh catch assembled by the hotel's kitchen excursion to coronado island (about 7 miles from marina) All in all a fantastic weekend with great fishing and activities...
