Baja Peninsula?

Flying into Cabo on 10/16/15 and renting a car to explore the Peninsula for a week with a strong desire to do a day or two of fishing. Don't have the cash for an 800+ day of off shore but would like to pay someone to take me out for a shot on mahi or tuna on the fly.

Doesn't need to be anything fancy but am slightly overwhelmed at random google searching and am looking for any first person suggestions on where to go/who to fish with. I'm pretty flexible on locations but probably will not be in Cabo proper for much time at all.

On the off chance someone lives there and wants to take us out for a day I'd be happy to trade some AK intel or give you a place to shack up for a visit in Anchorage or the interior.

If anyone has fly or gear tips that would be great too. I'm mostly a trout fisherman and Southeast Alaska steelheader. Not much ocean time under my belt.

Thanks,

Matt

The real nice thing about Baja are the roosterfish that you can hunt visually from shore, but this is not easy fishing. They are hard to spot and when you finally spot one, you must pray for them to be on casting range. I spent 5 days there and have a few shots on them, but no fish landed. Still, the visual worth the try. There are guides that can take you on a ATV and cover the beaches from La Ribera to Cabo Pulmo trying to spot fish from shore. These are beautiful, calm water' beaches. Another option is to try to negotiate a Panga at the Marina in Los Barriles or LAabera. Talk with Bill White from Cabo Pulmo Eco Palapas, he can hook you up with some cheap Panga there.

Let me know how you did after.

When I was there Baja Anglers gave me the name of a panga captain who knew some about fly fishing (there aren't many who do). I set up a half day with him for like $150. We found jacks and assorted other fish and teased up a rooster close in then headed out farther to look for dorado, tuna, and marlin. We found dorado and wahoo. Pretty cool fish on a fly rod, and we did a lot of fishing for just a half day. You'll need to bring your own fly gear if you go with a panga, just make sure you have a reel up to the task with lots of backing (gel spun). Also be sure that he knows exactly what you want to do or you might end up trolling for marlin or something you hadn't bargained for. Next time I'm down there I will rent a kayak or SUP and chase near shore fish like jacks, roosters, sierra, ladyfish, and pompano.
