Fall can be the most beautiful time of year, regardless where you are. In Southern Baja, what is usually a brown arid desert transforms into a lush green oasis full of life when the late summer rain permeates the dry soil. Butterflies and desert dwellers suddenly appear to take advantage of the colorful blossoming landscape as the desert comes alive.

It's also a more relaxed time of year since the school year has already started and the main summer tourist season winds down. Fishing pressure is next to nothing and the threat of storms has already passed. This year, the fishing in September and October was best described as consistent. Roosterfish in the 20-60 pound class were in most of the usual spots and anchored the action for the Fall.

We had a surprise school of sierra and yellowtail that provided some good action, and tasty eats, for a couple weeks, then disappeared as quickly as the tuna started to appear.

The incredible marlin bite that we had all summer finally tapered off as well, with only a 2-3 being landed by guests in Sep-Oct. 

Dorado made a good showing, with several 30 pound+ fish landed. Tuna fishing was sporadic at best and never really schooled up as they usually do in October.

The sardine schools were plentiful throughout the fall season and continued to spread and reproduce along the Island. The thick schools of sardines we had this season bodes well for another productive and fun 2022 season.

Again, a huge thank you to all the guests who journeyed down to fish with us so this season! If you are interested in booking for 2022 dates, contact us or view 2022 season availability here.

Twenty-twenty certainly had its challenges, fortunately finding good fishing was not one of them. Travel, risks, restrictions and protocols for Covid-19 made it difficult to get clients to Baja. However, those who braved the trip to Mexico experienced some amazing fishing without another soul in sight.

After initial beach and fishing closures due to the Covid pandemic set in place back in March, Mexico opened sport fishing on June 15 and we resumed operations carefully. Despite all of the travel challenges brought on by Covid, we found that the sea was well rested and the roosterfish were plentiful, large, and aggressive. On our first day fishing, it wasn’t a question of whether we would catch fish, it was much more a matter of, how many fish and how big? At one point, we had six roosterfish, all over 40 pounds, raging around the panga chasing our flies.

The fishing started off strong and never slowed down for the rest fo the season and many guests managed to set personal bests on roosterfish in terms of numbers hooked, as well as largest ever landed. We also saw some great action fishing for dorado, yellowfin tuna, and marlin for a good part of the season which continued deep into our fall season in October.

Fortunately, our Covid safety measures held strong and there were no infection incidents among guests or lodge employees. The remote and open nature of the lodge and the increased safety protocols to keep people healthy were greatly appreciated.

Thank you to all those who supported us through such a challenging season! We look forward to getting beyond the times of Covid and safely accept guests again for our 2021 season. If you have interest in securing dates please feel free to contact us, we'd love to hear from you.
