Gary Bulla Baja Mexico Rooster Fish and Dorado Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing Baja Mexico Waters Since 1993

Why do my clients return to La Ventana and fish with me year after year? Some have been angling these waters with me annually since 1993. I don’t offer a high end luxury resort or the bustle of tourist attractions. I offer an adventure. Our anglers stay in a small beachfront hotel with private rooms with AC and full baths and the sound of the Sea of Cortez lapping on a secluded beach. They fish with a small group of 9-11 fellow anglers, as individuals, buddies or groups and a family of Baja’s finest fly fishing captains. Our lodge is informal to make you feel at home. It is on the beach, and very clean and comfortable with maid and laundry service. There is no bar bill at the end of the week. Beer and soft drinks are included. There are no restaurant tabs. We have incredible cooks that are constantly being queried for their recipes. We make each other drinks from our own stash of wine and spirits. I often have a local archaeologist speak to us and answer questions about Baja prehistory and Mexican history. We are always looking for ways to make your stay more immersive in the local culture, history and natural surroundings. The friendships formed are enduring, first being welcomed into their lives and in time becoming an integral part of our angling family.


I first met the Lucero family in 1989 and have fished with them every year since. In that time they have become excellent fly fishers and guides. They are finely tuned to the sea and the wind and innately understand the waters and the fish that have been their life and livelihood for many generations. Once you set foot on their panga, their intention is to lead you to the most promising spot and connect you with the fish. But they don’t just give you ”shots”. They understand and love the art of fly fishing. They are skilled at casting, stripping, fly choice and knots and will guide you as any really good guide would do anywhere else. This may be your first time wrestling roosters, dorado, skipjack tuna and other strong fish and we do our best to help you towards a successful trip. Unlike other outfitters, we try to pressure our fishery as little as possible. That includes not over harvesting the bait schools and taking only a few gamefish for food. The captains understand that this fishery will be left to their kids. Our goal is to make this a really fun trip, with only the best folks in full support of that week-long journey into discovering the richness of the Sea of Cortez, the beauty and tastes of Baja Sur and it’s wonderful people.

Our season in 2021 went extremely well, with a great bait supply and lots of big rooster fish all season long! We encountered dorado every week, but they were more sparse than other years.Thankfully, they were large for the most part. We also landed many marlin on the fly, mostly in July, which was a dream fulfillment for the lucky anglers. We even had a few doubles.

Baja Fly Fishing Rooster Fish

20 miles out to sea and we ran across thousands of these “agua malas” or jellyfish. My phone took a picture of itself too ...

Daniel got a beautiful marlin teased in by Captain Luciano. ...

We got a couple of good fish today! #patagoniaflyfish #roosterfish #flyfishing #baja ...

Last cast! Isn’t that how it usually happens? ...

Another incredible day with my old friend Captain Valente Lucero. This fish was estimated at 75-80 pounds. It doesn’t take hours to land a rooster if you put significant constant pressure on them. Twenty pound class tippet and a 10 weight rod is a perfect combo and even one this large can be released within 30 minutes without a long revival session. Thanks for a another great day amigo! ...

A lucky day with my talented captain Efren yesterday. To land a rooster like this requires teamwork, boating skills and intuitive understanding that he brings with him. It’s all about challenges and fun. The comraderie just cements the memories of these wonderful days in the richest fishery in the world. ...

Our lodge at Baja Joe’s with the Milky Way. Thank you Evan Thibodeau! You are amazing! ...

First day of my right coast family that is back for the 17th time. We landed six nice gallo even with white caps and wind! They have skills! ...

Roosters are swimming in my brain. Only a few months to go and we’ll be on the water casting like our lives depend on it to these amazing animals. ...

A great day a couple of weeks back with Captain Efren. Check out the few spots left for 2022! ...

My boat partner Brian scored a couple of nice gallos today. A hug, kiss and adios! ...

Occasionally you have to break out the gear to feed the gang. Captain Valente Junior put us on the mark and taught us how. Greg was rocked six times before landing this big cubera snapper. Leonarda knew exactly what to do with it! ...

Hello Olaf! ...

Captain Fedelito got me into another nice rooster this week. No matter how many I’ve landed, the thrill of wrestling and photographing these beautiful animals never lessens. @patagonia_flyfishing, #roosterfish, #baja, #flyfishingphotography, #catchandrelease, @scientificanglers, @sageflyfish, #itsallhomewater, ...

Letting go is fun. ...

Wild times, great fishing and lots of fun this week with @kayflyfishinglodge, Lily, Jose and gang! ...

@9_lane Hugh scored a beautiful Gallo today! Ten weight rod, released immediately. ...
