Beach fishing

Cold morning, at least by my standards. A cold front blew in yesterday, it must be 70 degrees this morning. Bites off, but will keep you posted if we get into fish.

This is what we dream of... Snappers on light bass tackle.

Great day on the water for Rich Sobulvaro, Todd Ludoing, and Dave Adams...

How about this one, I wasn't the Gringo Viejo then.

This had to be early to mid 80s in central Mexican bass lake "Cajon de Pena".. This lake was just south of Puerta Vallarta and my buddy Ricardo Hopkins bought the bass from Mexico City hatchery and had them trucked in. It was great fun to have good bass fishing so close to home ( normally an 12 hour drive north to the bass lakes), that is until the Fishing clubs form Guadalajara found about it.. In the next few years we stopped fishing it, as the bass were getting sores all over their skins, we think it was because of a mine father up stream... But it was heaven while it lasted..

I was young once

This shot was taken mid to late 80s in Alaska... Where has all the time gone? I do have to say, I have been able to fish most everyday of my life, and for that I am blessed. Sill fishing, still living the dream...

Jim sent me this photo of his son Steve with a nice Sierra on the fly... They were just fishing with me a few weeks ago and now they are in the middle of a snow storm...

Off the water for a few days, but will keep you posted on what the guys catch.

A few fun sized roosters for Steve Jost..

Patrick Ma and a nice yellowtail

Flea Market

I took a short cut through the flea market next to the shop. I actually stopped and looked at a few things...It was a lot of fun, especially when you are looking for a few small gifts for your wife and kids...

Jim Snyder just sent me this photo.

This is what he woke up to.. I have always appreciated Cabo, but more so now....You guys can have all that snow, it going to be around 85 today and I am going surfing later...

Looking for marlin

We saw 3 marlin so far. Two completely ignored is, but we had one come in do a lookski. Instead of us teasing the fish, the fish teased us.

Marlin time again

Even though it's slow, we are headed back into the marlin waters. Jims sons want to catch a marlin on 30# spinning tackle. Good luck guys

Last fish of the day and no more juice in on the phone

Ray and a nice Sierra

Last blog of the day. Batteries dead

Rich and his cevichie

Back on the fish

We spent a very uneventful day marlin fishing, didn't see a thing, so we hedged ourselves and struck in for the shoreline. Right away we are hooked up. You gotta love Cabo.
