The Reel Baja's Tip of the Week

On the East Cape you need to pick and choose your days. Early mornings are best. In Cabo you want to be patient. The fish are moving around a lot. Once you find them then you can dial in a little more and be successful. If you do not see fish in one spot go back and double check it later. You will be surprised.

The Reel Baja

5-Day Outlook as of 9/6/21

We will continue to have good fishing here in the East Cape as well as on the pacific side including Magdalena Bay.

Techniques & Tips as of 9/6/21

Inshore - This time of year we see a lot of action early in the mornings as well as the low light hours in the evenings. People tend to over look these time periods. If you want some great action get up and on the water early or fish a little later in the day as those "magic" hours can be great. Offshore - have a few different rods ready from 8wt. to 12/14wt as you never know what you might encounter as far as species and size of fish. It never fails you will be running to a destination and you run into feeding fish on your way. You need to be ready for anything before you leave the dock.

Current Conditions as of 9/6/21

We will continue to have good fishing here in the East Cape as well as on the pacific side including Magdalena Bay.
