Default Baja East Cape, August 2019

So this was our first time to Baja and I’ve had my eyes on the east cape for a long time. The quieter scenes, open beaches and freedom to roam was very appealing but above all things we were attracted to, it was the Roosterfish that truly brought us here.

My wife Danniella and I stayed at the Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort, a family owned operation in Buenavista, about 45 minutes North/Northeast of the San Jose Del Cabo. The staff there is amazing. You’re treated like family throughout your stay and they really go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a great one. The food at the hotel Restaurant is outstanding as well and they’ll prepare your catches various ways.

We brought several travel rods with us and hit the beaches both on foot and by ATV every day of our stay. Fishing from the sand and exclusively using artificials, we caught and released several Roosterfish, various species of Snapper, Grouper, Jacks and more. It was light tackle paradise. We mostly threw Topwater poppers, jerkbaits and spoons as well as mixing in fly fishing periodically. We did a lot of running around on the ATV and between combing the beaches searching for cruising Roosterfish and exploring the trails along the East Cape, there was never a dull moment.

We fished two days aboard the “Nath&Mich” with Captain Omar Sandez. The first day we mostly trolled and then did some Roosterfishing in close. We caught many Dorado up to 35lbs or so, a 9-10ft Hammerhead Shark and had a close shot with a big Roosterfish. It was a very action packed day. Our second day with Capt. Omar, we started out gathering big live baits and then ran a ways to Omar’s favorite spots for BIG Roosters. While slow trolling live baits we took turns throwing a big popper and were rewarded with a nice Dorado right on the beachfront. It was about noon when we got the bite we were looking for and after a lengthy battle, Danniella landed a true Pez Gallo of a lifetime with a weight pushing the 100lb mark!!! After quick pictures she was revived and safely released.

It goes without saying that we will be back. The beautiful landscape, friendly atmosphere and open access to world class fishing makes it a very complete package.

Here's a few highlight pictures
