All about Blue Marlin

Ok guys, we are getting closer to the blue marlin season, so I wanted to share this video I found on the Sport Fishing TV. Very interesting.

Thousands of squid hit Cabo San Lucas.

This little guy was caught by simply dipping a bucket into the water, Rebecca,caught 15 of these guys, the crew was thinking about keeping this one as a pet but then decided to release him along his 14 brothers as he was probably not going to make it in the live bait well.

It may be the thousands of squid that we have on the area whats slowing down the marlin catch, but, aren't they cute?

Another great Tuna catch.

Yesterday, our 28ft Uniflite Andrea went fishing 24 miles straight out from the Old Lighthouse and they found a big school of tuna, the anglers, Kate Everhart from Westminster CO, and Jeromy Edler from Sterling CO, ended up with 26 yellow fin tuna between 10 to 15 lbs and a very nice 30 lbs Dorado.

It seems like they are getting closer!!!!

Yellow fin finally shows up!!!

Yesterday some of the boats caught yellowfin tuna.

C-Rod had 21 of them between 15 - 20 lbs and the Yahoo caught 4 from 20 to 25 lbs, both of them were fishing on the pacific side at Jaime Banks.

Hopefully this is the start of the tuna run we have been early awaiting.

BBQ fish recipe on the grill

I think we are missing some great recipes so I wanted to share some with you, Im a BBQ fan and the BBQ Pit Boys from YouTube always have something good to offer, In the video I want to share with you, they are using Striped Bass, we dont havethem in Cabo so I made this with yellow tail and it was awesome, I tried it once with Dorado but the skin sticks to the grill even if you oil it a little bit.

Check it out.

Mi experiencia en el mar.

Estimados compañeros,

Este pasado Sábado 11 de Abril tuve la suerte de salir de pesca con familiares y amigos.
Esto fue trascendente por varias razones:

Fue una de las primeras actividades recreativas que tuve con gente querida de hoy y ayer.
Luego, me dió mucho orgullo evidenciar la calidad y profesionalismo en el servicio que nos dieron
El capitán Nicolás Winkler y su marinero Abraham Castro.

Pero permitanme contarles desde el principio.
Al modo de la familia mexicana nuestra salida era a las 8:00 am, la cual pasamos a las 9:00 am
Al inicio le pedí al Capitán Nicolas que una de nuestras pasajeras tenía Diabetes y no queríamos
una pesca muy seria ni muy lejos. Él dicidió que sólo buscaramos calamares enfrente de la bahía, porque
sería una experiencia agradable para mis invitadas.

Salimos y nos paramos como a unos 800 metros frente al Arco con dirección a la bahía. Tan pronto nos detuvimos
la tripulación se dió a la tarea de buscar calamares usando los famosos yo-yos. Pasaron no más de media hora cuando
pico el primero que fue de aproximadamente 30 Libras de peso; no habían pasado ni 10 minutos de este cuando cayó
el segundo y luego otro y otro mas....
Entre todo el alboroto yo veía al capitán saltar del Flybridge del barco a la zona de pelea con una agilidad que yo perdí hace
20 años, a la vez que Abraham pacientemente ayudaba ya fuera mi amiga que vino del Distrito Federal, como a Danielita de 11
años de edad a sacar un calamar casi de su estatura. Poco después estaba yo entretenido peleando con otro calamar que al final
resultaron dos, uno se había comido al otro de tal manera que en el anzuelo sólo quedaron los tentaculos del primero.

En total fueron 5 calamares de excelente peso, un Jurel de Castilla y dos Sierras, todo eso en menos de dos horas.
Después la tripulación nos llevó de paseo para el lado del faro viejo.

El viaje fue todo un exito gracias al increíble servicio que recibimos de parte de nuestros compañeros Nicolás Wnkler y Abraham Castro, un buen equipo

Mil gracias

Camping in Baja

Hi anglers,

This time I want to share with you my camping trip to Playa La Perla in Mulege.

Its Easter for you, and Semana Santa for us, so the kids are out of school and I needed to find a way to get them tired...really tired, so, we went camping.

There are several spots in Baja were you can camp, my personal favorites are Mulege and Cabo Pulmo on the beach and on the mountains, Boca de la Sierra and Cañon de la Zorra, the last two are great if you go after the first rains, as the water will be running down from La Sierra de la Laguna and you can swim in the arroyos.

Mulege is between 6 to 8 hours away from Cabo and its a beautiful road to drive, however, make sure you bring a PSP or have a dvd player or get ready for 6 hours of "are we there yet".

Here is the map from Cabo to Mulege if you take the San Jose highway, it will take a little longer to get there, maybe 8 or 9 hours as you want to stop on the little towns between San Jose and La Paz, like Miraflores, Los Barriles, and you have to stop at the Cactus Forest.

Here are some pictures of the trip, this time I took the short road and went towards Todos Santos, they fixed the highway from there to La Paz and its 4 lanes now so you can get there in an hour or less if you are a maniac like us or one hour and a half if you are a decent driver.

This is the sunrise about 20 minutes from our destination.

This is our destination, as you can see, there were a few campers already, the little huts are optional, they cost 60 pesos per night and they include water for washing dishes and take a quick shower, there is a rustic toilet for the ladies and you can go find your own firewood or the locals will sell it at 3 pesos per log.

The place is very safe as the locals keep watch and if you need to go to town and get supplies, you dont have to worry about leaving your stuff there.

Here are a couple of shots of the same beach from another trip when it was not too crowded.

Here is a closer look at the hutts, usually, you can sleep right on the sand but this time was a bit cold and quite windy so we had to set up a tent.

If you decide to go there some time, if you wake up really early, right when the sun is rising, you are almost guaranteed that you will see dolphins swimming right on the bay, unfortunately I couldnt find the camera so I owe you guys that picture, also, if you bring your kayak, you can get right next to them and play with them.

You can also bring your rods and fish from shore, there were people catching some sea bass and if you have your snorkel gear, you can get tons of clams and mussels.
