    Headed down in a few weeks, Pangas off the beach. I am taking 20-50 lb. outfits, Mono and Spectra,
    hooks, sinkers, Sabikis.

    What else do I need to take?

    I hear the Corbina are biting?

    Do they use Strip baits?, live bait?, spoons?, jigs?, Plastics?, Gangions?

    Thanks again !!!

    Best advice is to keep driving south.

    You won't need #50 in San Felipe... :D But, this is a good time of year for fishing there when the wind don't blow. Gonzaga has been good recently for big Sierra and Yellowtail. It's only a couple of hours south and would be a great side trip. Plastics, Crocodiles and cut bait all work well...

    I hope still be on time before you coming to San Felipe (I live here)..
    first check my thread here.
    http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/threads/san-felipe-fishing.540526/


    as I said on that thread, I usually fish on gonzaga area or midriff area islands, but in some seasons fishing is plenty of fun here too, no really need for 50# lines, but I say bring one if are planing to do bottom fishing, with some luck or bad luck you might catch a blue shark or a big mantaray, those need strong lines to bring them up.

    for the rest of the normal fisheries like sierras, and grouper on the Konsag rock, I usually fish with 65# and 50# PP with 40# mono 30-40yds leaders, and I use the same setups for trolling, casting or bottom fishing, my "big" combo is a penn fathom 40 with 80# PP and 50# mono leader or a penn 320gti any of them on a cheap big5 special 30-50lb rod and my mild/light setups is a saltist 20 / calcutta 400TE on a muskie 7.6ft 30lb rod, If by chance I lost the mono leader on the calcutta or saltist 20h I go straight 50# spectra when casting only.

    for grouper, triggerfish and big cabrillas you dont want to give them chance to take line and go back to the rocky bottom, if that happens you better forget about that fish, so, use your drag bit more tightened that normally.

    cut bait of small squid and mullet, 4/0 and 3/0 hooks, 2oz and 3oz Krocks, your choice for trolling lures with big lip, and mega bait kind of jigs are your ticket.

    Totoabas.. not much a mystery ..

    the mystery fish is "vaquita marina" kind of a cetacean or small whale very rare to spot on
