Default Hi from Bullshipper in Mexico

I´ve been here for over 25 years as a permanent resident, so if there is any thing I can do to help you, please let me know.

I have fished the baja a lot, but have also fished the mainland since 1958 when we first landed 8 sails in Guaymas. Big day for a 7 year old.

I know Kino Bay, San Carlos-Guaymas, Barra de Navidad, Manzanillo, San Jose de Cabos, San Marcos Island areas best and have limited experience in Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, and Veracruz.

I keep a 28' cabin cruiser in San Carlos Sonora, my 20' CC Cape Horn as my trailer boat in San Luis Potosi where I live and work, and a 18' CC Seaswirl in Veracruz.

Buena Pesca

Jeff

Hey Bull, how about a rendezvous down your way some time? Shrimp & margaritas sounds great! I'll bring the salt & limes . . .

Hey, did Willie just start this?

I go down to San Carlos about once a month. I fish for anything, except Yellow Tail. I just can't stand to eat them dam things. Bullshipper where are you at now PV?
We're go'in down in 2 weeks for some deep trolling, maybe get a Grupe or something.

Hey Bull,

Will be bringing the 19th HOLE down in June for a couple of weeks maybe we could set up a hookup with a few guys and make a 1st Annual Southern California Hookup and do a fishing rally or just get together for a few days? That will be happening for sure. I fish the 505, 60 mile Bank, 1010 and every once in a while will stay in the Corral in Ensenada for a couple of days to clean up re-charge and re-group and head back out for another couple. How does that sound?

Very pleased with our own little group

It is a 3 day drive for me to get to Ensenada from San Luis Potosi. and airfare is about $700.

You can fly from LA to Vallarta for $255, so fishing there on my 20' might be a better option, as the fish are larger too.

I am going with 2 guys on Feb 9th and will post you on how it goes. Will leave my boat there.

I live in San Luis Potosi now, but have seen your house boat before. When you fillet a yellow tail, cut the dark blood stripe out of the fillet and just keep the white meat. This will really improve the taste about 300%. Makes excellent ceviche. But grouper and bass is hard to beat for the skillet.

If you want MUCH BETTER tasting yellow tail, cut out the triangular dark red meat the runs the lenght of the fillet at the lateral line. Fillet each side slab, take off the skin, then cut out the red which will split the fillet down the middle.

Just got back from PV. Much better fishery and smoother water here than in San Carlos, cheap airline tickets.

Hi Bullshipper,

I am taking my son to Barra for his college graduation gift next Wed. and returning the 6th of Feb. We also have two friends joining us. Plan to fish every day for a week.

Any help with panga guides would be greatly appreciated. Plan on beach fishing if you think a viable option also. I live just south of Oregon on Calif. coast. Albacore is our only offshore fish. Staying at Hotel Barra De Navidad, if in area please stop and say hi and we will gladly buy your drinks if desired.

Kind Regards,
Mike Nolan

Back from Barra. We spent week fishing and enjoying the area. Perfecto is best way to desribe Barra and residents. Carnaval was all week with parades, and singing and dancing in streets.

Fishing was excellente with 16 dorado and shots at marlin and sailfish daily. Warm water moved within 2 miles from beach with zodiac landing sail and mate a marlin approx. 300lb at 3 miles from harbor. Maybe long lines were off for carnaval. We boated small yellowfin at 19 miles was only action on outside.

Floating tarp one day and plastic chair next day accounted for most dodos. Fished with Captain Cocoal for 3 days in panga and one day on Mary Chuy a 36ft. sportfisher.

Sounds like you hit it during a good run of fish. Barra is a cool little town to hang out in.

Glad you had a good time.

I have recently moved here and am amazed by it, starting in Sayulita and moving my way down to Melaque, where I am now and am loving it the more I discover in this little place. Have you been to Puerto Escondido at all, and would you reccomend it?? I have heard of amazing surifng?

I have never been to Puerto Escondido either, but have heard the same reports about great point break surf.

But there is a powerful beach break ( not for ald farts like me) much closer to you.

As you come down the hill from Colima, y arrive at Tecoman, go west to the beach about 6 miles and you will find "Pascuales".

Awesome powerful tubes that rival the Banzai Pipeline in HI.
