Dorado

Baja Mexico Fishing

News for 2017, The Sardine run has been reduced naturally and commercially and has taken its toll on this fishery. Mostly in the availability to catch these wonderful Rooster fish and Dorado. For me I'm going to hold off on this one for a bit.. The great Peninsula separating the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez is home to some of the greatest fly fishing adventure yet to be discovered. Every year new areas are pioneered and new fly fishing options are found. The opportunity is endless for the adventure angler; I don't think anyone could cover them all. My first visit to the Baja Peninsula was back in 1985 when Cabo was a pile of unset bricks and Cabo Wabo and Senior Frogs were just beginning. Now a days, I cringe at the thought of driving south to the Cabo Airport. That aside, the fishing, the weather and the views are still pretty amazing. What we do here is plan trips around the La Paz area using two different services that provide two distinct options. One trip we stay and fish right out of La Paz launching from the local marina traveling out to various locations in search for our quarry. This option is best suited for the family style with accommodations equal to the close-in fishing. The service uses American made boats with local captains. We dine out in the town nightly and have much more time in port on a daily basis. The other option is a daily travel to the outskirts, south of La Paz to East Cape and Half Moon bay. Here, we meet up with a group of fishing guides and launch daily on the beach. This is geared towards the hardcore angler looking for a location a little ways off the beaten path. From the launch site, we will commonly travel 30 minutes to an hour back to the bait and start our fishing there. The fishing
