braids for Spinning reels
I'm new at running braids, I want to try running a top shot of 110 yds of 65-80 lbs braid on a jigging rig. Is there a braid that's made or better for spinning reels or for jigging? for now I'm going to run 50 lbs mono backing and 65-80 lbs braid to 60 lbs mono to my jig. I fish no deeper than 150 ft and target grouper snapper etc and A.J's up to 60 70 lbs. Home port, I fish the sw gulf

THE TYPICAL HOOT
The buzz of reports that a few nice yellowtail have been landed on the East Cape has locals excited. The largest problem is that strong north winds typical of this time of year are keeping anglers on the beach most days.
Tired of watching the wind blow we took our annual camping trip to Mag Bay. This is the time of year on the full moon and new moon that we experience extreme tides.
La Paz is our first stop where we load up on supplies for the week. Then it is up highway 1 toward Ciudad Constitucion. Turning off the highway we head toward the water down a washboard dirt road for about 20 miles until reaching a small fish camp. The pangeros there work mostly at night for shrimp and crab and we are able to buy all we want. Just past the fish camp is a tiny naval base. Past the base the road leads us to a beautiful deserted beach where we can camp at the waters edge.
Mag is about as close to utopia for an outdoorsman that I can imagine. On the low tide there are areas where we can harvest a bucket of chocolate clams in about an hour. On high tide fishing the mangroves is always action packed for a variety of species. That is not to mention sighting hoards of different birds, whales and porpoise close up.
Baja sunrise is just the best
It didn't take long for Jennifer to hang the first small halibut
This crab in the mangroves thought it was camouflaged
A whole tree full of Frigate birds were checking us out
A small grouper can be fun on light line
We landed between 80 and 100 spotted bay bass everyday most of which were released
An abandoned pier at Isla Santa Margarita is not so abandoned.
Nothing better then fresh clams on the barbecue
I got tired of eating clams, shrimp and crab but never get tired of the gorgeous sunrises
A snap shot of our camp before we break it down
This was the rig I used for several years. The friends we travel with would always have a pool betting on what kilometer marker I would lose it. It even surprised me but we never did.
I did succumb to peer presure and this is our stealthy looking new rig.
The trip wouldn't be complete without a flat.

A bizzare fish tail
Our week started out with strong winds and angry seas. It was so rocky 'n rolly I didn't pack my cameras, for fear of damaging them. That didn't stop Brent Kison and Phil Bidarn from fishing on Jen Wren III for three days. During that time they released one bill fish or more each day, caught a fish locker full of dorado and even a wahoo. On their last day they added 8 nice 30 pound yellowfin tuna to the tally. All the action came just a few miles off shore near La Ribera.
Finally the seas have calmed and yesterday I fished on Mi Corazon with owner Andrew Hughes and a couple of his buddies. We fished in shore between Punta Colorada and the light house and witnessed dorado in a feeding frenzy. Andrew also landed his first sierra of this season.
Yesterday, I captured the images below.
Every morning I look out my window and pinch myself.
First sierra mackerel of the season. Winter is on it's way.
"No legs" Greg bags a dorado. This guy is incredible. He is a double amputee and gets around better than most guys with all their appendages.
This bait got chewed. Maybe a trigger fish got to it?
Needlefish don't normally chew big chunks out of a larger bait
Check out this bizzare tail
This dorado must have had a close encounter at some point in its life. I wish it could tell the tale of what happened to it's tail.
Fishing the East Cape with Mark Rayor

East Cape, fished out?
For the last couple of weeks fishing has been the slowest all season. It seems whenever fishing slows down folks are always asking "has this place been fished out?"
I have spent more than a 100 days a year on East Cape waters for the last 21 years. I have no scientific data or access to any studies that have been made regarding this. What I do have is a memory like an elephant and can recall what I have personally observed.
My first visit to Los Cabos was in May of 1973 when my wife and I stayed at the Palmilla. My main objective was to catch my first marlin. At that time a single engine cruiser went for $100 a day. It seemed like a fortune but I ponied up for a days fishing with high expectations. At 2PM we had not had a strike and the skipper informed us it was time to head in. As he turned the boat that direction a marlin appeared in our lure pattern and I landed my first ever marlin.
Later in the 70's we returned to the Palmilla. I eeked out another marlin but never saw that wide open fishing others talk about.
My first visit to the East Cape was in 1986 and there after returned once or twice a year. During my visits I was always able to land a marlin and on some trips a dorado or tuna or two but never found that red hot bite.
In May of 1991 we moved to Buena Vista full time. Some times we would catch big fish and sometimes we would pay our dues. It wasn't until July of 91 we had a 5 billfish day. 2 strippers, 2 blues and a sailfish. We had 9 strikes that day and finally experienced that "WFO fishing".
Back then the fishing boats were very primitive. There were no GPS's and only the better equipped boats had VHF radios. Others used CB radios that would not reach out very far or had no radio at all. In those days there was only one telephone on the East Cape. Communication to the US was very limited and it was almost impossible to get timely fish reports. When reports did filter to an American fisherman the talk was always about the good days. That is what everybody wanted to hear about.
So back to the burning question. Has the place been fished out? No, it has not. We still have good days and slow days. It has been that way for the last 30 years. That's fishing! I am observing more vigilance than in the past. Catch and release is promoted more than ever before. The Sea of Cortez is one of the richest and also most resilient bodies of water on this planet. This slow period will end as fast as it came. Soon the fish will show in numbers one more time and it will be game on. In the mean time the real fisherman will keep trying and enjoy their experience on the water.
Posted are a few random images captured this season I have not had an opportunity to share.
