There is still one free bed available AND looks like over 20 fishermen so we should be looking at a payout of $500 US DOLLARS.

You guys should do well, the halibut up here seem to be biting and the pressure is much less in Baja almost always.

I'm trying to figure out how I can make this trip...

I have lots of questions, but I'll hold off until I know I can go.

Hope you can make it. About time we met. Tight Lines.

Looking at the list of folks that are fishing this Tourney, I suspect there are a good number that have never fished Bahia San Quintin for halibut. I have spent about 10 days on the water there and have had what I consider very good halibut fishing almost every day, but I'm by no means an expert. I find it quite different than the traditional Southern California halibut fishing, mostly because of the conditions. The tidal currents rip in the bay. It is almost like fishing on a river. The further you get from the mouth of the bay, the worse the current. Secondly there is copious amounts of floating eel grass and ribbon grass that float in and out with the tides. I find it extremely frustrating to fish with anything other than lead head and plastic combos. One can usually sabiki up some smelt and sometimes some macs but I have found it impossible to fish live bait because of the current and weed conditions. Even with fishing artificials you will end up with a wad of weeds on every cast. But if you try to hit the holes in these mats of floating weeds you will find that you will only be snagging the weeds on the retrieve and you will be able to work your bait on the bottom for a bit before having to retrieve it. I try to use as little weight as possible but unless it is slack tide, 3/4 oz is probably as little as you can get away with. The locals generally use scampi or other curly tailed grubs for their halibut fishing. Bring plenty if you choose to fish this way because the bass are plentiful and voracious. My best fishing has been close to the weed beds in 5 to 25 ft of water. The deepest water I have found has been about 50 ft. I have never had a bite in the deeper water but there have been 50 lb halibut jerked out of the area they call "the hole". Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Great advise Rossman. The currents can be treacherous, I recall getting tired just paddling across to the other side.

Dusting off the resume as we speak..

Any tips for taking the san ysidro sentri entrance and then the toll roads down? Looks quite confusing but with detailed directions should be fine.. How much do the tolls usually total one way? As well, what's the kayak storage situation like down at Don Eddies? Sorry if this has been covered in previous posts I couldn't find much in re. to this..

Thanks!

There is no Sentri entrance going South (as far as I know) - going North though - for me the biggest stress of going through San Ysidro is finding my way through the maze to get to the Sentri lanes. It is a total mess of turns, loops and confusion.
Do yourself a favor and go to the BajaBound.com website, then click on "Before You Go" in the upper right. There you will find a bunch of Photo directions, the Toll road and Sentri lanes being the most important for us. Print them out, study them and have them available on the front seat next to you while you are driving. Finding your way to the Toll road is easy, then it will cost you about $6 - a few bucks at a time through the various booths along the way. I always bring $1 bills for this, as well as a bunch of quarters ( a few booths are $1.50) - if they have it, they will even give you the change in U.S. coins - otherwise expect to be getting pesos. Each booth lists the toll in pesos and U.S. currency, so its easy.
My last trip to San Quintin I got lucky on the way back, and ended up behind one of the Baja 1000 chase teams who seemed to be taking every initial turn I was following, so I just followed them (as they had obviously done it a ton of times).

Kayak storage - the top of your car maybe? That's where mine was when I wasn't sitting in it...

Don Eddies is a safe compound, car parks in front of your room.

Here's what to expect at Don Eddies - kayaks on trucks to the right are in front of rooms. I will be sleeping outside in my hammock just to the right of where this picture was taken.



Here's what it looks like out at the point near the mouth of the bay:



And here is what I am most looking forward to - ( a nice halibut would be a bonus though)...

Sure was last year. If everyone shows up who said they would should be $400-500 in the pot. You can still sign up and fish, just show up at Don Eddies on the evening of the 23rd and put your hard earned money in the kitty. Hope to see you all there. Tight Lines amigos, remember the mexicans won last year.
