A monthly Baja fishing report by Gary Graham -That Baja Guy
MONSTER FISHING BY FOOT
Los Cabos and monster fish have been synonymous for decades. Recognized as one of the top 10 places in the world to land huge billfish along with Volkswagen sized tuna, plus IGFA record breaking dorado, wahoo, and many others. All pursued inshore and offshore aboard everything from trailer boats to tricked out mega sportfishers.
Baja beaches primarily known mostly for swimming, surfing, and sunbathing, offer, another option for many anglers is monster fishing by foot from the shore that delivers an equally unique fishing experience providing its own brand of monster fishing.
Over the past several decades, fishing tackle manufactures have met the challenge producing and impressive array of fishing equipment specifically for beach fishing.
That has revolutionized the local beach fishing here for both locals and visitors alike looking for a fishing adventure that doesn’t require a boat ride.
Monsters are in the eye of the beholder. Some are truly huge fish, others may be a personal best, or a new species caught. All memorable moments that will remain in an angler’s memory for a lifetime.
Baja beaches are a welcome venue for those craving their own monster that for one reason or another prefer not to leave dry land.
