Baja

Hello All, so the family is heading to Baja for spring break. Flying into Cabo and heading north to La Paz for a few days, then over to Los Barriles and then to Cerritos. I'm wondering if anyone has information on going after rooster fish. What do I need to go after these fish. Can I use a two hander? Was also thinking about a guide for a day, which is probably my best bet. Any info is helpful. Thanks in advance

I was reading up on these. Apparently cabo pulmo area has a healthy population of these fisheable from the beach. They were saying a 9wt single hander for smalker fish (LESS THAN 20 LBS) and a 10 or eleven for the big girls. From the beach it seems like a lit of running and then 2 or 3 quick casts for a chance at a fish. Not sure I would want a 2 hander for this. Maybe a switch would be a good compromise. Just food for thought. Hopefullt someone more knowledgeable will chime in.

Way better than most switch rods would be the surf/beach two-handers. The original Beulah Beach/Surf and the new Opal Surf rod were both developed specifically for that fishery as the owner of Beulah has an operation in that area. No way I'd head that way without at least one of them.

I just got back from Cabo last week. Talked to a guy from Montana who had been fishing off the beach for Roosters. He used a long surf rod and cast large poppers. Showed me some photos of some pretty nice roosters caught the week before. Fishing has been slow but should improve with warmer water. I think a long spey rod with a short heavy shooting head should work. Just stay away from the surf after casting. The beach is steep and the rip was churning when we fished from a boat for Sierras just off the shore.
