BAJA or BUST 2017 YOUR INPUT

2017 will probabally be my LAST year to HOST these trips, after that I will be happy to HELP others do it. The camp at Gonzaga will stay open for BWE member use. Looking for members to STEP up and keep this open for BWE and YOUR use.

Time to start the planing process for Jan through June 2017.
This is YOUR chance to set up a trip that conforms with your time schedule. If you have a proposed trip with dates please post here. If possible we will make it happen.

IF YOU do not post I will figure there is no INTEREST and not worry about it. If that happens I will post some of my trips before the end of the year, you are always welcome to join me.

29 April to 13 May. I plan on going to Kentucky this is a private trip and I hope to see Svendawg on this trip. In June I plan on doing the San Quintin Halibut Tourney again. Thanksgiving I hope to spend with Ross depending on his location. Christmas and New Years I will be doing the Mag Bay trip.

15-30 OCTOBER on the FLY will be split into two weeks so more can attend the best time for Baja. ALMOST HALF FULL.

NOW is the time for you to get your sh-t together for next year. You deserve a break, you work for it, plan it out and make it happen. Set up your own trip or join one of mine. Tight Lines.

When are you going to be there for installation of your solar panels?

Is it part of these trips or an special trip for that project?

I will use this thread to post all up coming trips and to post everything I can about these trips, driving directions, recommended tackle, possible weather conditions, any thing pertaining to these trips. By doing this I hope to have all the information for Baja or Bust trips in one easy to find place. You are welcome to post but let's try to keep in on target. Mahigeer please post your equipment list. Walrus could you post your fish caught list? Chuck D how about your tackle suggestions. Thanks guys and BWE. Tight lines.

Directions to Gonzaga

We meet at 5 am at Johnny's Shell station in El Cajon located at 515 N. Magnolia ave. Just off of the 8 at the 67/N.Magnolia exit From there we stay on the 8 to the 98 exit, follow about 30 miles to the 111 and take left to border crossing, San Diego to border 125 miles. From there we follow the Mex 5 thru Mexicali, follow signs to San Filipe, Puertocitos, Rio Hardy staying on the 5 all the way to San Filipe. Another 125 mies. Going through San Filipe take right at sign to Putrtocitos/airport, go about 9 km to sign saying Puerticitos and take a left, DO NOT go to the airport.. From here is is another 95 miles to camp. VADO means dip in road and years ago they could and would take your rear axel out, SLOW DOWN for them. At km 60-65 be very careful. When you reach km 134 you went 100 yards too far. Sign to camp will say Campo Turistico and you take a left. Up until now roads are all good at 60 mph unless posted lower and passable by any car. At turn off for camp it is unpaved dirt road, 15-25 mph but bumpy. Camp is about 1/2 mile from main road. I suggest lowering your air pressure at turnoff on your first trip, to about 20 psi WE have compressor in camp. Follow until you crest hill and go down to beach, Restaurant is on your left, follow to beach and turn left before reaching palapas, follow less than 100 yards to my place, as soon as you pass the trees on your left there are two rows with driveway between them you will take a left up a small incline OUR place is on the left. The sand on the beach can be very soft at times. WELCOME TO PARADISE.

Every one going on these trips should print out a copy of this and carry with you JUST INCASE we get separated

What do you need for these trips.

Your passport or passport card, I carry both. The FFM card issued by Mexico, I carry mine and renew every 6 months. Mexican auto insurance, I get mine every year from Vagabundos Del Mar. NO MATTER what your auto insurer up here says that policy does not protect you in Mexico, it MUST be Mexican insurance by a Mexican Carrier. Mexican fishing license is also needed. All papers on your car/truck, including registration and american insurance, paperwork on your trailer if you are taking one. You may NEVER be checked for most of these but a few dollars and some time might just save you big problems latter.

Any chance of getting a crew to roll down to mag bay for the new year's trip? Tough to get a group to go that far and for that long, but...trip of a lifetime.

Kevin you talking this New years or next new years. For this new years we talked about it earlier in the year and could not get 3 trucks to go. So I made the decision to do Gonzaga and a grand opening on my new place there. For next year I am up for it, we would need your truck, my truck and another 4x4 truck. Driving time is two full days each way, maybe a little more in winter as it gets dark earlier. So one more 4x4 and two full weeks. Let's do it.

(In 2015 have stopped counting how many spotted bass, triggerfish, and ribera I catch so I no longer keep a count of total fish).


Average number of lures lost in a week: 12


Favorite lure: rapala or candy bar twister spoon ( it’s a toss-up, but, I tend to lose a lot less of the rapalas).


Best tip: use wire it doesn’t seem to slow down the strikes, but you have less break offs when rocked or the Sierras are active.

Kevin, I just put it on next years schedule, subject to one more 4X4 truck coming along with us and two full weeks. Should be an AWESOME trip. I will have room for at least one passenger and gear. If I took two we might not have enough space for gear unless I took the trailer. Let's see what shakes out.

Next year sounds good for Mag Bay, and gives us plenty of time to plan.
