    hey amigos,
    I went fishing this past weekend, it was not the best day, not the best tide, and not the best catches but surely tons x better than a day at the office or a boring Sunday watching TV.
    fishing was slow during most of the day, it was just few moments before calling it a day when we found a nice spot with few hungry triggerfish which are tons of fun to catch and trolling around of one of the Islands gave us two decent fish, a leopard grouper and another grouper (I dont know the exact name), one of the guys caught a Reyna grouper ( a bright incandecent yellow grouper) but we wanted it to returned it alive and since we made the release so fast that I forgot to take pictures of the beautiful fish.
    anyway, landscapes of the Enchanted Islands are always beautiful

    this was our boat at 4:15am, a nice equiped Panga with electronics and a lot of saved points to get you on the fish

    that place ahead was our destination

    a nice big yellow spotted bass, give or take 25" and 8-9#, Baja Special reel got all the action this day

    then a decent grouper bit the pink mirrolure, again Baja Special did it really good

    I have chance to try the Fathom 40LD2 with some nice triggerfish, man!! just love this reel too, I know triggers are nothing against the 2-speed reel but I have chance to test how to move the lever all over the the way, test the low speed, etc. looking forward try it on a bigger fish now

    you can bet that buddy, although that Cabrilla and the small grouper is super tasty on the grill (sarandeado style ..baby)


    totally recomend it, Bebo the owner used to work with tony reyes Sr and Tony Jr for many years, since few years ago he wanted to have his own pangas, he now owns two pangas, one ready for 6-7 persons and one for 4-5 persons, both with electronics and nice fishing equipment (rod & reels), not just 4/0 and jigmasters, good english and knows the golden riff area and gonzaga pretty good, if you want more details send me a PM, I know him from few years now.


    yep, the good fishing starts on Bufeo camp (few miles north gonzaga), there is the big island, the Salvatierra island, then all the rest of the island are to the north pretty close each other, you need to try them all in the same day to catch different fishes.

    Thanks for the report. One question. Where is Bebo located at. At times we don't trailer our boat down from San Diego but still want to hit the reef or the islands. And how much does he charge.

    Bebo is located in San Felipe, he normally take his panga and lauch at Puertecitos ramp to the Golden reef or Islands.
    price depends on the number of persons and place, but not much different than the rest of the panga charters out thee .. send you P.M
