Baja Mexico Hosted Trips and California Surf Fishing
Every summer and fall a few of us from both coasts spend a week panga fishing at Cerralvo Island/Punta Arena area. This is the best area in Baja for fly anglers because of the abundance of small bait, the variety of species and habitats. Pompano, snapper, skipjack, pacific jack crevalle, dorado and roosters and many more keep our rods doubled over. The food is fantastic and the camaraderie is great. trips are limited to ten rooms and single occupancy makes it easy to join up as a solo angler. Your air conditioned bungalows on the beach view Cerralvo Island and Punta Arena. Most importantly, our captains are the best! Our season starts in April and ends in October. Price includes seven nights single occupancy in beachfront suites, three meals per day with all beverages, local taxes, fishing licenses, panga fishing for six days, and unlimited local surf fishing are included. Airfare, Airport/hotel transfers, bait, and tips to guides and staff are not included. A taxi will be waiting for you at the airport.
We return to Magdalena Bay and camp in the dunes on Magdalena Island. We will flyfish from kayaks, wade the edges of the channels and cast into the surf. Our cook will be serving delicious meals and iced drinks at our fully stocked camp. All camping and kayaking gear will be provided. Airfare and fishing equipment not included. Camping and fishing at Magdalena Island on Magdelalena Bay living in another world. Gliding into it using sit on top kayaks is an unforgettable experience. We will cruise the huge estero and it’s tidal river and cast against the mangroves for broomtail grouper, corvina, leather jacks, mangrove snapper, jack crevalle, spotted bay bass, and african pompano. Sometimes we stake our kayaks with our paddles and cast from the flats. Opportunities for incredibly productive surf fishing abound for halibut and California corbina on the Pacific side of our island.
These guiding sessions are offered as an intensive surf fishing lesson, notnecessarily as a catching session. When the day is over you will have a body of knowledge to make you feel at home fly fishing in the surf. Let’s have some fun! Learn to read the water. Find out about equipment, times to fish, tides, flies and presentation, casting in the surf and line control, and the habits of our surf species including: Corbina, Barred Surf Perch, Halibut, and Yellow Fin Croaker. Flies are provided. Stripping basket, rods and reels available! Stayed tuned for scheduled surf clinics.
