Baja 2009

Baja Beach Fly Fishing 2009 - Roosterfish“The Year of the Grandes” – PLURAL!

The trip began as usual – mostly…

We got into plenty of the typical “fun” fish off the beach, (Ladyfish small Jacks, etc)…

We found some junior Roosterfish, and we had daily shots at some monsters.

The highlights, however… were that Dad finally got his true Monster Roosterfish, I got a new personal best Grande Rooster, and Brandon picked up a nice Rooster on top-water…

Dad got into his huge Roosterfish late one afternoon, just as the day’s sight-fishing was coming to an end…

Nearly a mile down the beach later, bruised abs, and the most worn-out I’ve seen my dad in a long time…

We landed it…

Fish like this deserve their own post, so check out the full story at Dad’s Grande Roosterfish.

The following afternoon was slow. After 2 hours of limited shots I decided to change-it-up and headed off on my own for a spot a few miles down the beach…

It was a good thing we had radios and ATV’s or these pictures would have never happened…

On the last morning we got into an awesome ladyfish bite. The fish were 100+ feet out which was well within range of our 2-hand beach rods…

Gotta love the ladies

After getting grabbed on nearly every cast fishing sub-surface, Brandon finally took the initiative and swapped to a floating head and a top-water fly…

…while I took the opportunity to get some video and verbally abuse his casting skills (hey, that’s what brothers are for).

Karma rewarded him for my taunting and he ended up nailing an awesome little rooster on top-water.

Check out the short video…

On the way back to the beach house that evening we stopped at a non-descript spot for some last-light blind casting where we found a fiesty little Jack…
