Headed to San Quintin for labor day to do some fishing with Capt. Juan. We crossed the border at Mexicali Friday morning. Stopped to get our tourist cards at the immigration office. It was business as usual except for masks. Took 15 minutes. My wife's mother didn't have her passport because she had to send it in with her renewal application, that was sent in February. So we had her wait in the truck. More on that later.
We arrived in San Quintin around 3 and checked in at Don Eddie's then went to the beach south of town to swim and watch the sunset.

Day 1
My daughter and I met up with Capt. Juan at 6 Saturday morning and jumped in his Parker and headed out to catch bait. I was immediately schooled by a 9 yr old on making bait. Off we went to the 240 to try for yellowtail. We had a double hookup, I farmed mine and Isabella caught hers.

It was her 1st yellowtail, she was stoked and so was I
We moved on for some bottom fishing and caught some of the usual suspects

Day 2
This time my wife also came with us. After making bait we headed to San Martin island to try for some Halibut with no luck. Then headed to Ben's rock and trolled around for a bit for no love there. Eventually we ended back at the 240 and found some big reds
