On the weekend of Jan. 2 and 3, a couple of long-range boats found bluefin in the 100- to 200-pound class SW of San Martin in the area roughly 160 miles from Point Loma. Seiners were already on them and the bluefin disappeared on Sunday in rough weather. Since then, the fish scattered.
Some say this year has been a nightmare … but this is what dreams are made of!! Pisces 42’ Caliente closed out 2020 with 102 marlin released by anglers David and Nick Brackman over the course of two days. The Caliente headed outside of our regular fishing grounds and was greeted by hundreds of billfish, frigate birds, and bait balls, making for nonstop action from dusk till dawn (just right and then some!).
We are coming to the end of the 2020 Baja fishing season. The North winds have begun to pick up, and the winter weather has arrived.
Que Pasa Baja California Please use a mask and stay safe. As of December 19th, it is mandatory by decree of the governor of the State for everyone in Baja California Sur to use a mask in common areas, streets, and any transport. Together we can keep safe.

I’ll put it to you straight – it’s highly likely this is the largest roosterfish ever taken on the fly! A 100-pound class monster taken by @reamsjeff, his second ever grande….Joshua Martz
Baja Bytes Fishing – Tuesday, December 8, 2020 So the bait balls have disappeared for the most part, which is unusual for this time of the year. The marlin are out there, but we are not able to catch in high numbers. There are still decent numbers of wahoo at the ridge, dorado is spreadContinue reading “Mag Bay Rooster’s Crow”
Wahoo action was located on the grounds north of Punta Gorda to Vinorama, but the action was spotty, and mixed sizes of fish were taken, from four-pound sierra to trophy-sized tournament-contending wahoo weighing around 60 pounds.
No covid here and it’s great fishing so come on down! The village appreciates your business! The yellowtail are “putting on the pounds” in Bahia Asuncion! Colette Palin-Taaning is a rock star and knows how to hold a big fish!
Suddenly, Captain Luis threw the throttle back and we nearly stopped cold. That can mean there’s a marlin on the surface and we were excitedly scanning the sea when he was shouting “Tortuga, Tortuga” and pointing portside. Holy massive Leatherback Turtle!
So what would happen in 2020 of course? A 310-pound yellowfin tuna was landed only three days after the Tournament. The Captain was Francisco Castillo, known locally as “Gachi” and the catch was aboard his Super panga “Regina 2,” a 26-footer. Angler Mike Witoshynsky landed the fish on the outer Gordo Banks close to San Jose del Cabo.
