cabo on the cheap
at the dock everyone will want to take you out fishing in the panga. buyer beware.
what i did on the cheap was rented horses to ride on beach with wife. guy gladly took 50 american to use the horse to ride on the beach alone for 3 hours while he flirted with my wife.
i had great fun with my songle hander 9w and throwing albie flies and clousers from the surf at breaking fish and nervous water. the drop off is pretty steep from shore and a pretty good rip going. mid day i rode the horse to pods of fish. got off, RETIED THE HORSE to drift wood or rocks near by. no roosters but great fun running down the little man with jacks to 10-15 lbs. traveled bout 5 miles away before wondering what was going on with my wife and teenage gaucho. good fun, relatively cheap and never fished from a horse before. could have ran into roosters but as others have said, the east cape is better bet. if ya wanna get serious with it i would recommend teasing with spincasting poppers and dannys. tough to do both and fly with one horse and alone. cabo is fun butt $$$ to get a guide who doesnt chunk or troll.
