The Sea of Cortez, also known as the Gulf of California, is one of the world’s great big-game fish destinations. Known for its great diversity of species, anglers will have a chance at a number of once in a lifetime trophies. Striped marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, skipjack tuna, wahoo and bonito are all commonly encountered when fishing the offshore waters. Not to mention the giant blue and black marlin that also roam the Sea of Cortez. And although the offshore action is enough to keep some anglers busy for a lifetime, Baja’s inshore and beach fishing is a fly-rodder’s paradise! On the inshore and beach, you’ll find good numbers of Jacks, ladyfish, sierra mackerel, snappers, pompano, yellowtail, and the ultimate prize, the roosterfish. All of these species can be caught from a boat or directly from the beach. The waters of the East Cape provide a unique and challenging fly-fishing environment you won’t find anywhere else on Earth.
Epic tuna bite continues on the East Cape! Here’s a big one from last week that battled us for damn near an hour on light line. 🎣💪🏼😅. #pursuitanglers #fishing #fishingbaja #yellowfin #tuna #sashimi
Fall roosterfish in Baja, doesn’t get much better! Found this big girl in a school with 4 of her best buddies! #roosterfish #baja #fishing #pursuitanglers #losbarriles #pezgallo #grande #fish
Was lucky enough to fish with one of the best guides down at CXI. Teingire, aka “English” is a world class fisherman and guide to say the least. He put me on big GTs everyday of the trip. Having a great guide pays off big time, end of story! #flyfishing #cxi #pursuitanglers #fishing #geet #listentoyourguides #hatchoutdoors #seewhatsoutthere
Big tuna on topwater is hard to beat. The way they launch themselves at the lure or explode out of nowhere is incomparable. We lost over a dozen lures and fish this day as we tried to find shark free areas, but finally managed to get a few nice ones on the deck!
