Not all fishing trips are all about fishing. Gonzaga Bay getaway was a blast with friends Chris and Gary while staying at Bob Kamoo’s “Casa Pescador” bayside rental trailer. What a view and so convenient. Right at the ramp. We had a great captain with Juan Cook, had our fish filleted, vacuum packed, and frozen for the trip home by Juan’s wife, and enjoyed fantastic yellowtail sashimi and cocktails at sunset, and dinners at Papa Fernandez Camp … and what a monster breakfast! on the way home today in San Felipe. I highly recommend Kamoo’s place and of course our Capt. Juan. The best…Pat McDonell
Our spring season is in full swing with roosterfish, amberjack, yellowtail, sierra mackerel, grouper, mako, and thresher sharks, some decent mahi catches, and still, some marlin are around
The week’s highlight was the wahoo that anglers hooked into while trolling closer to Punta Gorda or Cardon. Not the typical season for these highly prized pelagics, but it proves that you can never really know what might happen. These fish prefer warmer waters, but the bite was sporadic daily, and slow trolling live bait was the best bet, particularly the elusive chihuil. We saw one monster 79-pound wahoo landed and several others over 50 pounds, so of the handful brought in, they were of impressive size.
The season’s opening trip was terrific in Laguna Ojo de Liebre! There were many whale moms and babies and mating trios to see. Of course, they were still a bit shy, but we saw a bit of everything – breaching, spy hopping, courtship, and those cute little newborns! I’d say we saw about 30 whales in front of our camp.
