Baja Sur Trip Thanksgiving

Weather: Perfect! 75-80 degrees. Mild wind the whole week
Water Temp: 70-74

Fishing Asuncion: Calico fishing was slower this time around. Still managed a 5 and 6-pound bass. Guys went offshore and landed a 25lb YT. I know it picked up for them after we left for Abreojos

Fishing Abreojos: Good to excellent on Grouper, Snook, Corvina, and Bay Bass. I brought my bait tank this time and loaded up with finger mullet. It was simply awesome to pitch a live mullet into the mangroves and watch Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, and Snook crush them. Fish were literally flying completely out of the water while trying to inhale the panicked mullet on the surface...

I went 1 for 3 on the Snook.

After living in Florida for two years, Snook is my absolute favorite fish to catch.

Baja Snook


This is the fish that started my Snook obsession!

Until next year Baja!

Cool report Roger and thanks for the photo - was definitely a great trip. Thanks to Rossman for being such a gracious host - if you're reading this, Rossman, I just received your outboard parts and will bring them to you in a couple of weeks.

Hope we can do something like this again, it was a great time.

Absolutely great having you guys down here! This Thanksgiving get together turned out to be the best ever. Simply stellar fishing with tons of yellows caught by boaters and yakers. A few surprises like wahoo, YFT, and WSB. This, coupled with perfect weather and sea conditions. I'll post up a report when the rest of the guys leave.

I will add that all of these species caught, except the wahoo were caught within 1.5 miles of the launch.

Simply awesome! I absolutely have to get down there - saw the picture of your WSB on the Talk Baja Facebook group Ross - excellent!
Snook is a bucket list fish for me, so I have to make an effort to get down to where they live and give it a try...
