Bahia de Los Angeles

Post by tsunamichuck »

Spent a few days down in Baja, paddling and fishing. Pretty cheap way to chill out on desolate beaches and eat whatever the sea provides. I paddled in the mornings, checking out the islands in the bay and fished with June after 9 or 10 am. Posted some pics in my album http://tinyurl.com/22gj55 and a short clip here http://tinyurl.com/24nhbo

You lucky dog...to be so close to Baja..

Check out our album here ( Chris Sanor & Beth Wallace ) in the photo albums section. I've added a few Baja photos from this last March. We were a little farther south ( La Paz - Isla Ispirtu Santos ) but no fishing for us. Maybe next time.

Chuck,

How do you hold the rod when you troll in the Khats? Would you have to wet exit if you flipped while trolling?

I insert the rod into my pfd. If I capsized, I would likely just let go or get rid of the rod and roll back up.

Will the rod float long enough to recover it?

Don't know and really don't care. Losing a $20 rod reel and $3-4 dollars of tackle is my last concern. :oops: And I would not be fishing in conditions where a capsize would be likely.

Good to know that you are spending the big bucks on the boat and not the fishing equipment. :wink:

I would expect you always fish in calm seas. The only thing that would 'ruffle' your boat would be latching onto a big cobia or something like that. Ever had to fight a big fish in the Khats?

I caught a 4' barricuda this weekend in the LH. I lost my gaff prior to hooking the fish, and was no way going to try and land that fish without one. I waited for a while and then flagged down a passing speed boat. They had a gaff, and pulled the fish out for me. I stuffed it in my cooler and paddled home.
