Went fishing with my two sons - stayed at Hotel Palmas de Cortez and fished with Francisco. We stayed inshore for Pargo, Cubera Snapper, Roosters, Groupers, etc.

We caught BIG Cubera Snapper (live line Blue Runner @ 200 FT near Cabo Pulmo - North Border), Small Tuna, Grouper, Pargo, etc.. Our guide Francisco was solid, speaks English well and grew up in Los Barriles, so knows the area very well and has many good spots. His Panga is in good shape and keeps it clean. Also, great attitude and demeanor and liked to work with my twin sons, 15 years old. He picked us up at 6AM sharp on the dock in front of Hotel and we were always one of the first boats on the water. You can call Francisco or WhatsApp him at +52 624 119 1968

Double hook up at same time on Groupers (10 oz Jig & Live Blue Runner @ 600 FT) - Great eating!

Nice work right there. What did the big Cubera take and on what line class? Those things are total tackle-smashers. I've come up short more than once on those beasts!
Live line Blue Runner no weight at 200 FT with Accurate Boss Xtreme 600, Calstar 40-80LB Rod, 80LB Top Shot, Owner #8 Hook. Yes, need quality tackle to get them to the boat.

Nice! That's the right gear to get the job done, and you still need a little luck and a good pangero. And it's still a tug-fest. Congrats once again. 8-)

It’s really great that you took your young lads to the East Cape. You are making memories that will last a lifetime I’m sure.

    I'll be there Sat. Sun, Mon 8/6 to 8/8. I've been to Mexico over 100 times and I haven't been there now in 20 years. Staying at the Palmas de Cortez, fishing off a cruiser and this is a free ride. Oh Yeah.

    Guessing you released that big cubera ... but just noting here that I personally have stopped keeping them and probably will stop keeping all snapper. They grow so slowly. I fished in Panama a couple of weeks ago, and the cubera fishery is super strong (fish like OP's on poppers at the shoreline) and the conservation will keep it that way. No captain will kill a cubera there.
