Baja Mexico - Cabo San Lucas, Magdalena Bay

Tip of the week 

Inshore - This time of year we see a lot of action early in the mornings as well as the low light hours in the evenings. People tend to over look these time periods. If you want some great action get up and on the water early or fish a little later in the day as those "magic" hours can be great.

Offshore - have a few different rods ready from 8wt. to 12/14wt as you never know what you might encounter as far as species and size of fish. It never fails you will be running to a destination and you run into feeding fish on your way. You need to be ready for anything before you leave the dock.

Seven-day forecast 

Excellent fishing in Baja and will continue to stay excellent all summer long!!

Week of October 6th, 2014

Hi All,
This last week the fishing has continued to stay very consistent and productive. Went out a few days and found some great dorado, tuna and marlin from the boat. The beach is also staying solid with sierra in the morning and some great ladyfish and mid sized roosters. The water temps are continuing to drop and with it the marlin bite will go into full swing. The fall is the main season for some of our best fly fishing for bill fish. We currently also have a lot of sail fish and striped marlin in the area and they are willing to take the fly. Our best action for marlin will be in later October and November.

The Reel Baja will be running our " Fly Fishing for Marlin 101? schools over in Magdalena Bay starting the first week of November. We will then run the package through the second week of December. The Reel Baja does still have a few openings for this awesome experience so please call or email for information. Currently we are offering a "live aboard" package based on double occupancy of $3,200.00 per person for a three and a half day trip.

This trip is like no other and you will truly experience some incredible fishing. We are staying out on the boat and that allows us to stay on the fish! This means you are able to fish from sun up to sun down if you wish. We have even fished in the middle of the night in the past as well. You should see the dorado congregate under the boat at night as they are attracted to all the bait and lights from the boat. Please remember this price includes all flies, rods, reels, meals, and drinks. If you have ever wanted to catch a marlin on the fly, then this is your trip. This fall is shaping up to be one of the best we have seen in the past couple years for marlin. Again, the trip is based on marlin, but we will be targeting plenty of other species as well, like dorado, wahoo, and tuna.

Tight lines,

Must Have Flies
