Greetings

Just joined, have a Cabo 40 Sportfisher, taking it to the Bahamas for a couple of months...before any of the big winds pushes us out.
Posted a couple of items, and appreciate the advice and information.
Spent decades taking a trailer boat down to Baja, so this is new for me. And the Atlantic is very new.

Welcome Caboman!
It is a great forum & I have learned a great deal since we have people from all over who sail/power many kinds of boats. I saw you said you caught every kind of fish in Baja. We were the ones that left them- we caught only 1 fish when we were there. LOL! Luckily, we could support the locals in villages by buying fish! 
Hope you enjoy CF!

Thanks, next time you head to the Sea, send a note, I will make sure you are on the fishing spots.

You got it!! Although buying fish from the locals was great-kayaking to the beach to get dinner... & far less messy.

You said you spent time in Loreto I love Loreto. It's a wonderful town. Wouldn't mind retiring down there. Or anywhere right now-it's Friday 

Re: Greetings

Loreto, back side of Carmen, best fishing day ever...13 marlin caught and released in less than 5 hours. Amazing.
The north end has some of the best yellowtail fishing in Baja. And Catalina, lobster practically climb into your boat at night...
But nothing beats the roadside stands, along the beach just north of Puerto Escondido, and having fresh chocolatas clams and a cold beer.
In New York they charge you $90 for three of those clams...and you get a dozen and a beer for under $10, under a palapa, 20 ft from the bay...oh my.
I hope the Bahamas are 1/2 as good as Baja...but then I am headed that way.

Sounds awesome! We were also at Isla Carmen. I think we were there before the season. It was beautiful though. Must be deeper because the water was quite cold. We will try harder next time. We had lobsters in Bahia Santa Maria that were the best I've had. I'm sure the Bahamas will be just as good-maybe in different ways. Hope you have a great trip to the Bahamas- Enjoy it!!
