ABOUT US


 

With over 30 years of fishing the east cape of Baja Mexico we have come to call the area our second home. The incredible amount and variety of fly fishing opportunities has kept us coming back every year. Throughout the years we have camped, traveled, fished and explored  Baja Mexico and established close friendship with local families. This experience has given us insight into the fishing, lodging options, and the seasonal changes,  culminating in our ability to offer some of best fly fishing experiences possible. Whether you are looking to fish in the lap of luxury or camp and explore the remote and pristine beauty of Baja Mexico we have a trip for you.

ABOUT AREA

INFO COMMON TO ALL GUIDED TRIPS

Baja Mexico’s East Cape is one of the most productive blue water fly fishing locations in the world. Gentle seas, fair weather and a precipitous drop of the ocean floorarea-map-large Baja

make this the perfect setting for fly fishing. Add the incredible number of migrating pelagic and resident species and you have a recipe for great fly fishing.

Fishing can be excellent year round. After the storms have past, conditions are best for fly fishing in May, June, July, and again in October. Once fair weather settles into the area, an abundance of bait attracts migrating species like roosterfish, jacks, dorado, billfish, tuna and wahoo. During the summer, you can anticipate all kinds of different species. However, if you have a specific quarry there are certain weeks when your chances are better.

SPECIES

Dorado and roosterfish tend to be the predominant target species for fly fisherman. Although both species are in the area during late spring and summer and fall months, some times are better than others. During May and the beginning of June, large roosterfish migrate into the area and will aggressively take a well placed fly. As the season continues, larger roosterfish move off to deeper cooler water and become more cautious. 10-15lb roosterfish continue to be abundant throughout the summer months.

Once the summer progresses and hot weather sets in, Dorado (mahi-mahi) appear in greater numbers. Any floating structure has the potential to hold fish. Commercial sharking buoys set by local Pangueros are frequented by fisherman and a handful of live sardines can get the party started. A fierce take and acrobatic displays make this one of fly fishing’s top sport fish.LRP1350512

Though Dorado and roosterfish get a lot of press, there are numerous other exciting species to target such as marlin, sailfish, tuna, skipjack, bonito, jack crevalle and pargo.

IMG_5676 (2)Surf fishing from the beaches also has some excellent opportunities. Jacks, roosters, sierra, ladyfish and pompano cruise the shore looking to corral bait fish into the sandy shallows. Sight casting, teasing fish in with spin gear or just blind casting in a probable spot will get the job done. A shore blitz is not an unlikely site.

Fisherman are transported by Jeep to local beaches up and down Baja’s East Cape in search of bait fish schools and roosterfish. Sight casting and teasing rooster fish from the beach is the pinnacle of saltwater fly fishing. Anglers should come prepared and be able to cast at an expert level. Whether you want to camp on the beach, or stay in the lap of luxury, the fishing is world class. We have tailored several different trips to suit anyone’s needs.
