Cabo?
Anybody tie any jigs for the south Baja? I just got back from San Jose Del Cabo and I'm going back again in Feb. Love it!.

Everything I read said large lures from the beach. Turns out the best thing was smallish spoons, about 1/2 oz. All the Canadian guys were casting 2" hoochies with a bubble. Next trip I'm bringing bubbles, a few hoochies, a few small spoons, some flies and some small jigs.

Bait is 1-3" flat side herring or sardinas. Any ideas for jigs? My guess is they'll be small and behind a bubble.

Its hard to bet a 1/2 to 3/4 oz, 4" spoon in the surf. 1/2 oz buck-tail jig white with a red thread body is killer also...

RE: Cabo?
Swimbaits work really good. You fishing in the estuary? Try the East Cape too.

Jigman,
The bigger spoons of about 4" never had a hit. Small 2 1/2" Krocs and 2" Champs had all the action. I think I have some 1/2 oz heads to tie some up, thanks.

LedHed,
We were staying in San Jose Del Cabo, is that East Cape or farther north? Didn't fish the Estuary inside the turtle refuge. What kind of swimbaits?

When we fished Baja, we'd us big plastic swimbaits on bullet head jigs, ganjons (sp??) of 3 hooks tipped with anchovies or squid, and big bucktail jigs bounced along the bottom.

For hair jigs, thing east coast stripper jigs.

East Cape is around the corner going up the Sea of Cortez - lot of retired Americans live there. North of there is La Paz some more excellent fishing. About 280 Kilometers on the pacific side is Bahia de Magdalena (Mag Bay) - if you like fishing Cabo (Baja) - you have to fish there - one of my favorite palaces - ever!
Use to be some mangroves you could fish... Using small 2 & 3" swimbaits (any color) and the bullet head jigs in white. Trolled Rebel broken backs too. You gotta upgrade the hooks!

Saw a no fishing sign in the estuary and river last week.

Got fish but the bite was sunup to 8am only for me. Lots of Jacks and Ladyfish.

RE: Cabo?
Yeah it is. Wish the surf was a little less there so I could use a light walleye/bass rod there.

Went to Akumal Mx one time. There's a barrier reef so it's all sight fishing for Jacks in knee deep water. Good fun with 1/8 jigs and a light outfit.
