Philster -

$500? What's the best time of year? Pls tell us more!

I have been intrigued with Baja since Bob Veverka's article...

Bajaclave anyone?
Dude, that sounds awesome. You mean it's $500 per person for 3 days for the fishing, the room and food? Or $500 per day? If it's the first I may even be able to afford it. Sounds like too good to be true somehow. Tell me it's not...

All prices listed are per person, double occupancy for the entire trip. The $500 one is the high end joint. Air conditioned, top flight american motel accomodations, with 150 tv channels via satellite. Even a nudie channel You can do it for half that easily. I'm doing five nights all inclusive, four days in the boat (take off from the beach in front of the hotel), and one night is in a suite (all they had) for $1,400 as a solo tripper. Group booking can be less For Late summer Dorado fest check www.bajabigfish.com Awesome lady, great site.

Three basic seasons. Talking about what's really hot. It doesn't mean the species not listed won't be there.

Spring: May/June Awesome inshore for jacks, roosters, sierra mackerel, grouper, cabrilla, etc. Some skipjack action. East Cape mostly. Storms can keep you off the water if you go too early

Late summer: July/August Dorado Dorado Dorado! Some yellowtail (DAMN TOUGH FIGHTER!), Inshore fish also. Around Loreto is best. Fished have moved north from the cape. Storms can be an issue. More from the perspective of messing up Dorado cover, but can push you off the water.

Fall: East Cape again. Dorado all sizes, but big solitary bulls around, gotta look for them, Yellowfin (football to VW size), Sails, Marlin if you like the whole tease thing. Wahoo a slim possibility. You would have to dedicate the whole trip and maybe not see one.

Excited

I am getting kind of excited about this. Probably not going to Alaska next year. This will fit my new schedule. Where would I fly into from the east coast? Do you think Southwest goes there?

Thumbs up

East cape is looking "muy interestante" amigos - especially with deals like that!

Could be very interested here!

We stayed in Cabo San Lucas (1998 ish) which was very nice for non-fishing wives - you could even drink the water. Beaches were unfishable from shore due to serious Dumper surf - we're talking something the size of a house rising out of nowhere about 30 feet of the shore and hitting the beach - something to do with no continental shelf on the Pacific side.

For spring and fall, flying into Los Cabos (San Jose del Cabo) is cool for the east cape, or you can go into La Paz. I VERY MUCH RECOMMEND LOS CABOS! Lots of delays into La Paz. For late summer in Loreto, you fly into Loreto... One shortish strip, left to right for take off, right to left for landings, try not to pass directly behind the idleing engines when you "deplane" onto the tarmac

Alaska, and United definitely go into Cabo, I would assume southwest would have some flights. A buddy flew in from Huntsville Alabama once. Don't recall the carrier.

For Loreto, you usually have to fly to Los Angeles, and connect to Aero California which is actually a mexican airline. Good one too. Better food, and hot young "stews". Shows you what a lack of anti-discrimination laws can do Just joking guys, I'm creeping on 40 and out of the job market at the moment. I support us "old folks" being protected... But they are cute

Cabo San Lucas is no place for a fly fisher to be IMO, unless you want to go on a cruiser ride and troll. For the east cape stick to "Punta Colorada" north to La Paz. Lots of great "resorts" of varying expense up and down the coast. Don't want to violate any anti-commercial rules (really don't, I think this site is B*tch*n' and want it to be strong sponsor-wise), but if this thing gets serious, know that there will be tons of options and price ranges.

Hardest choice is time of year. That dictates location to a great degree. Much like anadromous fish, the pelagics come in by way of cabo, move up the sea of Cortez (a giant bay) during summer as the water warms, and move back out as water cools in the fall. Not true off all the species, but true enough to plan your trip that way.

flights

I must be doing something wrong because all I can get is flights for almost $2,000. Brutal. Even on Hotwire all I get is $965. Maybe I won't be going.

As a test, I found $796 from atlanta in june... didn't know where you would fly out of. try the airlines themselves. I saved over $100 on my flight (310 instead of 435 I think) by going directly through Alaska instead of the online travel sites.
