Wild Wide Waters

Late August & September is usually the peak of the hurricane season here in southern Baja but fortunately, we haven’t been too badly affected thus far other than such much needed rain in recent weeks. In the Los Cabos area, we have had the most of that rain just this last week with Hurricane Kay which followed close on the heels of tropical storm Javier which brought a little more rain to the Baja a week before. For those of you that might have visited earlier in the summer, you will not believe how green the desert looks right now, absolutely stunning & really incredible just how quickly the rain transforms the landscape here. As far as the fishing goes, this time of year can be complicated due to these storms pushing up big swell along the coast and you’ve kind of got to be patient waiting for those lulls in between when you can get out and cast a line off the beach. During this time of year, I find myself doing a little more bait fishing than normal targeting smaller species for the pan particularly some of the snapper which are excellent eating & good fun on lighter tackle. Looking ahead with much anticipation to October which is when we start to go after Dorado from the beach with lures so can’t wait for that. Tight lines you guys!!
