    Lost at Sea … Any updates ?

    Very sad story. All the times I've been out there, even in a big boat, shit can go south in such a hurry.

    what is catching on the beach, let's hear it?

    Sorry about no pics uploading. I have zero admin rights to fix it. Perhaps Tyler will stroll by and fix it.

    Unexpected

    We took a panga out of San Jorge. Was back in the early 90s. We were fishing in a shallow channel at the north end of the island. Dropped a hand line with sand bass head on it for bait. Line got bumped, gently pulled it up by hand and up pops a great white nearly as long as the panga. He rolled...

    Unexpected

    Why yes, there are. But why it's unexpected is that LARGE sharks are pretty rare around Rocky Point. They've been fished out. Every once in a blue moon Shawno, myself, or others will hook up with a mako while fishing the deep reefs. But they nearly always break off. To my point, in over 40...

    Unexpected

    A really BIG shark. Also hooked into a large great white at Bird Island, but he easily broke our light tackle. At least we got him to the surface and could see him. Another oddity was a cutlass fish and a cusk eel.

    Sea Shepherds

    Sitting off the port. God bless them. They're trying to manage a resource that the Mexicans couldn't. And they know they can't because of that. Meh. Love'em or hate'em, it's a very tough position to be in. In my heart, I believe the vaquitas are history. Sad as it might be.

    Always loved JJ's, but only for drinks! Never touched their food.

    Sewer Lakes In Mirador Area

    Reminds me of the Calle 13 sewage overflow. Once it dried up, everyone was eating that dust in their tacos. I ate, anything that doesn't kill me only makes me stronger, as gross as it might be.

    Best time to fish in relation to tides? March 2022

    Get to da reef before high tide, an hour. Set up, and fish the slack tide until it starts to go out. Sage advice.

    Sliding glass doors

    Aluminum corrodes. From some of the Sandy Beach condos I've seen, the aluminum frames get rough in the salt air and are hard to open.

    Made It to The Big Leagues

    Not a biggie. Use a hole drill and cement it in with MarineTex.

    Made It to The Big Leagues

    They always put the pick-up in a screwy place. Used to have a similar problem until I replaced the pick-up (a brass mushroom) with a clam shell pick-up thru-hull facing forward. That forced water through the pump as I ran...

    Made It to The Big Leagues

    When I'm live baiting, I drop til I hit bottom, then lock the reel with heavy drag and just ping the weight off the bottom as we drift. The rigs you have are perfect. I make my own and use 80 lb. mono to the hook and three ft. of 20 or 30 lb. that runs down from the tri-swivel to the weight...
