East Cape, Baja

Leaving tomorrow for a short trip to the East Cape of Baja, Mexico. Will post a report and pics when I return. Hoping to get a roosterfish this time--they eluded me last year. We'll be fishing the beaches and from pangas.

Just returned from our second annual trip to Baja, Mexico, to fish for roosterfish, Dorado, marlin, tuna and whatever else swims.

We had great fishing for roosterfish along the shorelines with a fly rod. The dorado fishing was slow, though we managed to get some on the fly rod. The tuna were scarce, and we did have an exciting day casting to marlin that were following flies and the teaser. We also caught some ladyfish and other smaller jacks along the beaches.

Will add more pics as I process them.







Nick's beach rat worked well!

Notice the pelicans. We probably landed a dozen or so of these! They don't fight real well. . .
Along certain beaches they would attack our flies and sometimes you just couldn't get the fly away in time. We'd reel them in and the guides would simply unhook them without much effort.

Wow - that's always been a dream trip for me Vince, thanks for re-igniting. What a spectacular fish... gawdy but ballsy looking at the same time.
