2017-2018 MAG BAY UPDATED

LEAVING 26th December 2017 and RETURNING 6-7 Jan 2018

This year MAY BAY for Christmas New Years. As of now it appears that Baja_Traveler and myself will each truck down giving us 2 4X4 trucks for safety, I know I will have room for another angler with gear. Kai and I plan on bringing our Solo Skiffs to increase our range and for scouting and safety considerations. We will do lot's of flyfishing and light tackle fishing. Depending on weather we will consider an off shore trip for exotics

ANYone else interested it doing this trip?

Still interested. Would love to make it happen.

We will see if there is any interest in the trip, if there is hopefully someone will propose a set of dates. 2 days drive both ways so I would suggest 12-14 days. You could make it shorter but that's a lot of driving.

Still waiting to hear from those who said they were going for the New Year. Tight Lines.

Well, at the job I'm currently on they will expect me to be taking off from Christmas to New Years again (if I'm still there, and I should be). If it happens then, I'm in - With a Solo Skiff on the roof!!

OK Kai, I ordered MINE this morning, looks like at least two solo's going. So it is gonna be wet in the afternoon's as the wind always comes up. I think there is room for the sleeping bag, cooking gear and maybe a camp chair for overnight trips. Let the good times roll. NEW DREAMS coming.

UPDATED

BUCKET LIST TRIP, I will be going on 70 for this one so I will consider this my last big trip, last chance effort to reach Mag Bay. Light tackle and Flyfishing, I will target Bass, Grouper, Halibut, Snook, Pargo and more Bass. There are also corvina, yellowtail, wahoo, and others in the area. For me I expect it to be a trip if a lifetime. Baja_Traveler and I be bringing our Solo Skiffs for added security and safety.
I hope YOU will have a chance to join us on this treck thru Baja. Tight Lines.

Hi Mako Bob,

Sent you a p.m. regarding your solo skiff. To be on topic: I'll be down that way Christmas of 2017/New Year of 2017.

I've fly fished a beach south of there and caught small snook out of the rocks using clousers- super fun.

I will watch this thread and if we can meet up- it'd be great to fish with you and your group. I may have contacts for pangeros who understand fly fishermen and where to take them.

Bob,

Yes, we did go and it was great. We took 12 days and made a stop in Asuncion and fished for a day on the way down and back just to break up the drive.

Great calico fishing in Asunción as you already know... but you want to hear about Mag Bay!
The first day we barely made it to our beach spot before dark. I will give you all of the location details before you guys go (If I'm not with you). It's about 7 miles of dirt road north of Lopez Matteo's (no 4wd needed).
The first day we fished straight out from camp and caught some small spotties, small corvina, and a couple of small broomtail groupers. Fun day and great conditions!

The second day we went further north and added halibut, pompano, and some sort of Jack species. Also some nice broomtail grouper for light gear (8-10lbers). Also, the corvina were nicer as well... maybe 20"ers.

The third day we fished south and found a deep (30'?) hole with current pouring in from the boca. We fished here with nonstop fish every cast action for almost two hours. Corvina, pompano, and jacks were very aggressive and were literally fighting each other to get to our lures. This was a spot none of us will ever forget. Top water, poppers, crocs, kastmasters, Lc's, everything was working! After that we drifted along some channels along the mangrove islands and found some mangrove jacks, and several very large corvina (one measured at 28"). Also saw something huge come out and take a swipe at a hooked pompano (I'll bring some bigger lures next time!)

This was our best day of fishing, but we were beat from a averaging almost 20mi/day. Didn't even feel it with the fishing being so good, but standing up straight after all day was rough. Two revos and one guy in a paddle kayak. My legs felt fine actually as it was an easy pace with lots of time stopped fishing, but sitting for all day got me a bit. I used to think the couple of guys that yaked to Catalina from Long Beach were crazy, but now i am thinking about doing it sometime.

Tons of great/cheap meals, met some cool people, and had a great time overall. I subscribe to the "bs without pics" philosophy, so I will be writing up a more complete report with pics of fish, meals, some great sunsets, our beach camp, etc.

I am REALLY looking forward that report and pictures!

I'm thinking that this summer I will have to concentrate on accumulating new fishing gear in addition to my fly outfits for this trip.

YEP, pictures and locations fished would be AWESOME. Camping spots too. Need to catch a snook again, last one was in Panama in the 70's. This trip will be open to others who feel the need. Dates not set yet but will be Christmas, New Years time.

We will discuss actual travel fishing plans as we figure them out. I would prefer to travel straight to Mag Bay and fish hard the whole time in 3-4 different locations, FIRST 4 will decide. Meals will be group type like our Gonzaga trips.

Awesome to hear you guys will be down there at that time- I'll be dropping off my girl in La Paz on the 30th of December and then am "free" until around January 4th.

If you guys know where you'll be I'd be up for meeting up with the crew- and I'll have my (new to me) pro-Angler with me.

I'll have to jam for the border to be home (Imperial Beach) by 7th.

When concrete details are known - please keep me in the loop!

And I'm freaking over the Mag Bay report that's being posted right now on this site- getting me fired up!

We plan on being back on the 6-7th of Jan. Would be good to finally hook up with you. This is a bucket list trip for most of us. Tight lines.
