I found a little rocky spot in about 2 feet of water, removed bait tank and rods, opened hatch, removed steering cover, found broken steering line. Located extremely frayed broken steering line, reattached steering line with good knot. Re-routed steering line thru hull, secured line, tied knot, DONE!


Ya know it seems that if my mirage drive doesn't break, something else does....But at least my mirage drive didn't fail me this time...and if it did I was ready. I put together a little tool kit for just this type of scenario, lucky I learned to have one ready from my last Baja experience.

Either your gps is lying or mine is. I paddled it and fished it. Paddled/trolling motor. I have fished it a couple of times. My navionics track says 2.8. What did yours say. Or did you just look at it on google earth. I should say 2.8 to the reef where at low tide it kinda breaks. Did I physically land on the island no. But 2.8 to maybe 2.9 is accurate. Thanks for the tide and wind advice cause fishing by myself in Baja I would have never thought of that. No I am not on a TEAM.. But I have fished once and I stayed at a Holliday Inn.

Awesome trip guys! Looks like a blast. Have you guys thought about BOLA? I go every early oct and water gets deep between shore and islands and great fishing and diving as well.
