Went down to Santa Rosalia for Thanks giving weekend to fish. The drive down was pretty smooth till you get to Cantvia they were doing road work I would say about 3 miles of dirt road till you hit pavement and after that the ride was very smooth there. I did not have any problems with thieves or the cops. I got there Tuesday at 10am and was greeted in San Bruno by Danny. We went across to San Marcos Island were I would spend the next few days at. In the evening I was asked if I wanted to get a tour of the back side of the Island and I jumped on it. Danny ,Irwin and myself each take a fishing pole just in case. The Island is pretty big and has some really nice sandy beaches on the back side as we are getting to the west side of the island we see the birds going crazy on the top of the water Danny guns it to were there birds are the yellow tails are boil hard on the bait these tails are better grade 25 to 40lbs. We cast into the boils and we have triple hook up I hooked a beast on 60lb test and the drag is on the reel is close to buttoned down it took 150 yards of line in 3 runs fought it for about 5 mins and it pops off. Danny and Irwin get there fish to gaff and were off to chase the birds again. Next stop we get one fish to bite I got lucky this time and got that fish to the boat. We did this a few more times and total was 5 fish. Danny 2, Irwin 2 and myself 2. That's was fun fishing. Wednesday went out made bait in front of Santa Rosalia Marina it took us 10 min to make about 40 pieces of bait we were off to the 110 bajo.The fishing was very slow we only had three fish for the day. It poured cats and dogs Wednesday night. Woke up Thursday and it looked pretty rough as we made our way out we found out it was really rough we made it across to San Lucas cove and made bait for about 2 hours once we had about 20 pieces of bait were off to the 110 there is a total of four boat out there slowly they all start leaving we have the 110 to our self's and we start our first drift over the reef and get bit we did this till our bait was all gone total we got 8 big. On our way back to San Marcos we see a boat that is in trouble it was being banged by the wave on the rocks by shore. So we race over to the boat and I cast my jig over there boat and tell them to put the anchor rope to the jig. I get the rope to the boat and tie it done it took us a few tries to to get the boat off the rocks once off the rocks we tow the boat to San Marcos Island The kids of the boat were pretty shaken up but safe. The prop had fallen off and the current was strong. They were pushed to shore very fast. It turns out that to be Art a fellow bloody Decker that we helped out. So Thursday we caught 9 tails and 1 boat lol. I had to leave Friday the fore cast for the next few days was un-fishable the drive back was smooth no problems and the bad patch of road was paved in Cantvia. A note to all that are bring fish back to the states you will be sent to second revision due to some jack ass bring drugs in the fish so be ready to pull all your fish out of the ice chest.

Great Report & Trip.
What kind of boat is that in the pic?
It is a Boston Whaler. I believe a 20' Guardian (military model), if not then an Outrage.

Excellent report, fish and rescue!

Great pictures of some really large models. Sounded like a really great trip. Picture of your Avert/Fish is very impressive. Hopefully you continue with your luck. You made alot of BD's proud with your helping of another BD'er in distress. Thanks for a nice job sharing.

Great Report. Santa Rosalia has the best yellow's in baja. Looks like you were fishing some rough conditions. I usually go down in late June / early July, but the last couiple of years have been pretty slow, especially on the orado. Based on your report I may have to do a late fall / early winter trip to try it out.
