Great, thanks bob, youre too generous. I just put in my requests today for the time off. Hopefully ill catch you guys before you leave and you can help orient me. It will be my first time in Baja, other than on cruise ships...

My friend wants to bring his boat, its a boston whaler. I think it might be a little small but he insists itll work. Its a 14 or 15ft I believe. Is this suitable for this area?

I gotta start reading all your old reports to figure out what to bring and buy!

Small whalers are fine, bring gas as it is not always available, beach launching can be tricky, you might want to launch at the pamp at Papa Fernandez. Or the back side of Alphonsinas.

Bob's in Kentucky and isn't due back untill tomorrow. I believe thats why he hasn't set up a separate sign up thread for this trip yet... You should expect to see it up by Sunday at the latest, or knowing BOB he'll be checking in tomorrow night if he gets in at a decent time.

Missing Paddle

I left a Bending Branch Angler Ace paddle at Bob's place and it has gone missing. I'm thinking someone took it by mistake. Please PM if you happen to of taken the paddle. I can meet somewhere and pick it up.

Weather warm, high 90's humidity over 50%, winds under 10mph. As to what to bring??? Bathroom working, Fish cleaning table needs light for your night cleaning adventures, maybe something to plug into the generator. I should be there, it not you know where to find the keys.

Makobob,

I am in for the New Year's trip to Mag Bay. I've never been, but have wanted to for a while. I have fished the La Bocana and Coyote estuaries near Abreojos and has a blast.

How long are you thinking for this trip and what are the dates? 10-14 days? It's about 800-850mi from the border, so 2 long days to get there.

Let me know if you need any help planning. A place to stay or at least shower a couple of times in Mag Bay?

Best regards,

Tim

Tim, I have been asking BWE members for any local knowledge on Mag Bay for a year. No one seems to know much, any input would help.
My plan for this trip is, spend New Years at our place in Gonzaga, on morning of 2 Jan 2017 I will leave my place at day light and drive thru CoCos corner to CHAPALA.b People can spent New years with me OR meet me at Chapala before 8 am on the 2nd. From there we book for Mag Bay. I would expect to fish Mag Bay area for a full week before coming back to San Diego. It would be nice to have youalong.

Puerto Adolfo Lopez Mateos seems to be a popular access spot. This is where some others access the northern part of the bay. You can launch and fish from there and there are also dirt roads leading north and south to explore further.

Further south and getting into the larger part of the bay is San Carlos. I believe this is where the sardine processing plant is.

There are a couple of hotels and restaurants in each, and even some Airbnb listings for houses!

I will do some research and see what I can find.

www.garybulla.com has some info and offers paid tours.

YES lot's of great info for YAKERS. I looked this over 3 times in the last year, it helps answer many question. Did you notice his call for fins to help control yak without much paddle use. Would be rougher for Hobies but it does make sense to be able to back out of mangroves on hook up. I would also want a stake out pole as used on the east coast along with an anchor.

WINDS are normal most afternoons so must be taken into consideration. Camping areas will be very important. Hope others are looking into some of this and trying to do research to make this the trip of a lifetime. Tight Lines.
