Just wanted to share some of the still from our Baja shoot. We fished Abreojos/La Bocana in Late Nov and had some stellar fishing for both Broomtail and Gulf groupers (and 10 jillion sand bass).

We have been taking pro photogs with us on the shoots and coming back with some amazing stuff. I'll also try and post these as we shoot them from the road going forward.

The first of our Two Part Baja episodes will premiere on Jan 31st and the second episode on Feb 14.

We hope you'll watch.

    I swore I would never own a two stroke again. Then I ran them.

    The G2's are fire breathing monsters. They have torque like the old Opti 2 strokes but they are better on fuel than most four strokes.

    The guages, tech and controls are all cutting edge.

    And..... Zero Maintenance for 500 hours.

    I'm sold on them.

    That's what I want to hear!!!!!!!!!

    Why the brass nuts? I hear people trailering their rigs down there all the time! Am I missing something? I know there can be shady areas and those long stretches can be nerve wrecking, but am I missing something!

    I don't think he was saying the people in Mexico are to fear as much as the actual road. It's a difficult drive even when not towing a boat. Add my little rig behind you for white knuckles and then install the brass balls for a triple axel. I would imagine no less than at least (5) "Oh Shit" moments with something that big swinging behind you on that magical, two lane, ribbon of asphalt leading to paradise.

    I wasn't there but did see some of the footage taken by GoPro stuck to the side of the boat going down the road. Less than an inch between the big rig and the boat more than once...

    Thanks guys.

    The road has never been better. I would NEVER have tried that trip 10 years ago. We rolled with a pilot car and I've been towing down there for over 20 years. If you're towing a normal 8'6" boat, GO FOR IT. This beast is almost 40' tip to tip and 10' wide. Not for the squeemish but do-able under the right conditions.

    Glad you guys like the show. Wait till you see this Baja stuff. New episode next Sunday and we'll release a new episode every OTHER week until July.

    I remember 20 years ago driving to Rocky Point and the highway back then. In some areas the bridge was washed away and you had to trailer down in the riverbed. Some parts of the highway was American grade though!! Until you get close to your destination and then I guess they say fukit you drive it you build it!

    The road can handle it if you pay attention. The Dina's from hell got their swerve down pat. That turn off you made before getting to San Ignacio can be full of vultures and I gotta wonder where you launched. There is a usable ramp in the vicinity of Guerro Negro. Did the range of the boat allow you to make to Cedros?

    So there's only been one show so far right? I was pissed on Sunday thinking that either someone deleted my show, or something else had priority over it in the recordings.

    The second show is on this Sunday right (1/31)? I'm going fishing Sunday, so I'll be sure to watch it Sunday night.

    Correct. New episode 1/31 and every other week thereafter.
