CLIENT REPORT: THE FISH OF A LIFETIME IN BAJA

May 9, 2017

CHASING ROOSTERS IN BAJA

Yellow Dog client Josh F. recently returned from a trip to Baja with Pursuit Anglers, where he reported the fish of a lifetime, among other successful angling pursuits! Here’s what Josh had to say:

“We had an absolutely fabulous time in Baja with Josh and Pursuit Anglers.

Fly fishing off East Cape of Baja.

Per the attached, I caught a “fish of a lifetime” on the first day – a “grande” 40-lb. rooster that I sight cast to from the beach.  It was a 25 minute battle that went 250 yards into my backing. The fish was released unharmed.

I just missed another one in that size class on the last day too. Caught a number of other ones and some nice tuna.

Josh is a consummate guide and is intimately familiar with the area and all about the fishing. Couldn’t have been better!”

Thanks, Josh, for sharing your story and images!

Here’s a bit about our East Cape Baja programs:

The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is one of the world’s great big-game fish destinations. The East Cape area of the Baja Peninsula is without a doubt the best place to target roosterfish and numerous other species while fishing from the beach or in a panga. This is definitely not easy fishing, and having the right guides and being in the right areas at the right time are all factors that are crucial to success. By partnering with Josh Martz of Pursuit Anglers and long-time Baja guide Lance Peterson, Yellow Dog is proud to offer the best overall fishing program for the East Cape area. We can easily arrange unique, full-service packages that include accommodations, meals, transfers and all guided fishing.
