TRIPS

SHORE & BEACH FISHING

The Baja peninsula abounds with opportunities for fly fishing trips from the beach and none better than the East Cape. With miles of open and accessible coast line, the East Cape of Baja is arguably the world’s #1 place to catch roosterfish from the shore. In fact, more world record roosterfish IGFA records have come from the East Cape area and the waters we guide in particular.



Throughout the spring and early summer and again in the fall, large roosterfish cruise the shoreline corralling baitfish into the shallows, sometimes literally chasing them onto the sand. With rooster combs streaking above water and dark torpedoes below, this behavior can turn into an all out blitz and is a thrill to watch and an experience of a lifetime to hook up with.

Predominantly calm conditions and clear water and an abundance of species,make for excellent fly fishing opportunities. Jack Creval, Sierra mackerel, ladyfish, pompano and  possibly skipjack, and dorado are some of the other inshore species you can anticipate while surf fishing Baja.

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.

INSHORE/ OFFSHORE BOAT & PANGA FISHING

The local fishing vessel of choice throughout Baja Mexico is the “Panga”. These 20-26 foot open boat are perfect not only for commercial use but sport fishing as well. A “v” hull and shallow draft design is perfect for the Baja fishing grounds.P1010071 edit_edited-2The open floor plan and lack of overhead obstruction make an excellent set up for fly fishing. The East Cape of Baja Mexico enjoys predominantly calm seas and calm conditions in early Sping and Summer and fall periods. A steep drop off of the ocean bottom creates fishing opportunities for pelagic fish close to shore. It is not uncommon to encounter pelagic species, such as, Dorado, Billfish and Tuna within a mile of shore. The conditions and topography present a unique opportunity to catch big fish from a small boat.

Guests arrive on the beach at 6:00AM and board Pangas in front of the villas. In most instances, bait has been pre caught and is loaded onto pangas and live traps floated in front of the villas. This provides teasing baits for the day with out having to spend time running after it. Guests are dropped off on the beach in front of the villas after the fishing wraps up in the early afternoon.
