Magdalena Bay
Offshore Fishing

From October to December of each year, gigantic bait balls congregate miles off the coast of the bay, creating one of the most amazing shows the Pacific Ocean has to offer.

As mentioned, the main predators of the sardine include the Striped Marlin, Dorado, Wahoo & Tuna, which work as a team to the corner and push the bait balls to the surface from the depth of the sea, a situation that takes advantage of the earwigs, pelicans, and seagulls that attack from outside by launching themselves like rockets on sardines as part of the food chain.

At this moment the sardines move from one place to another trying to survive and it is the moment when they start trolling in our boats with quality equipment, for this reason we must be very attentive and prepared to live the moment they are hooked in the trolls and a power struggle begins between the Fish and the lovers of sport fishing, these are the last minutes or hours of life of the fight of the King of the Pacific "El Marlin", the dorado or another fish that will touch you witness live.

DORADO

Dorado is a very popular fish in the Pacific Ocean. "The goldfish is the prince in sport fishing considered like that in all of Baja California Sur." In other places it is also called the Dolphin fish or Mahi Mahi. El Dorado is a bait eater, taking flies and poppers easily when in the mood to eat. They are strong fighters in fly tackle, usually showing numerous jumps followed by strong runs. Typical school-size fish run from 8 to 12 pounds and can add up to hundreds of fish. Bulls (mature males) run large in the East Cape, often weighing more than 70 lbs. Fly fishermen have caught more than 50 pounds.

Moscas: La clave para la selección de moscas es hacer coincidir el tamaño y el color de la mosca con los alimentos naturales que se comen. En la mayoría de los casos eso significa imitar a la sardina. Este pequeño pez cebo es generalmente de dos a cuatro pulgadas de largo y blanco bajo el olivo, o blanco bajo el color tostado.

TYPE OF FISHINGROD WEIGHTREELSLINES
Calm days, for Dorado, who is in schools of small fish, small flies are thrown9A good quality saltwater reel containing 300 yards of 30 lb backing is recommended. Large spools have a decisive advantage in line recovery speed and also maintain a constant drag pressure. As a note for all species, we typically set the drag at between four and six pounds of pull, then support the edge of the palm during the fight to vary the pressure on the fish.A full-length line is a good all-purpose line for Dorado, it's easy to cast and easy to handle. Draft heads or integral sink tip lines in Class IV to Class VI sinking rates are an ideal selection for all offshore species. These lines offer maximum backing capacity, with minimal belly formation on the line while playing fish. High density sink lines are a must for most tuna fishing situations, knowing that both species are often available at the same time and in the same location.

Marlin
"The Marlin fish is the King in sport fishing considered this way throughout Baja California Sur"

For many fly fishermen, the Billfish is the ultimate challenge on a fishing rod, an endeavor that is the teamwork of the local Captain, local Guides and the Sport Fishing lover. Despite the apparent complexities of fly fishing for billfish, it is not necessarily an elite sport and with an experienced and competent team and the Guide can be expert and / or beginners alike is enjoyed. Just for the show

For small to medium fish, on the beach9-10Small and medium-sized fish are often found feeding on sardines and small needlefish. The same selection of flies that worked for dorado and tuna also works hereA clear midline is the best line for roosters and covers all applications, including popper fishing. Floating lines are adequate in most cases, but will lose some distance and control in crosswind situations.
The large roosterfish.10-12They prefer larger foods such as mullet, ladyfish, mackerel, and seahorses. Sometimes the ballyhoo moves towards the shoreline creating incredible feeding frenzy. For these larger fish we threw in large bucktail tails trickers, dreadlocks, clousers, clouser-hoos, folds, and marine habits in sardine, ballyhoo, or mullet colors. A mullet pattern with a spun deer hair head has proven to be very effective for large roosters on the beach and on the pangasius. In all cases, the size of the fly should match the natural food source, and the largest patterns are approximately 5 to 8 inches long.

Tuna

One of the most fun and extremely exciting fishing is that of tuna both in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, from the small and peeler skipjack to the powerful yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares).

For maximum pulling power, tuna is probably tougher than any other fish commonly caught on a fly rod in the Pacific Ocean. The fight begins with an incredibly fast first run that goes well on the back end. After the first run, the tuna tends to deepen and circulate under the boat.

Tácticas: las tácticas para el atún toman dos formas principales: apaciguar a los peces de la estructura profunda; y encontrar peces alimentándose bajo marsopa.

For small to medium fish.9-10The same flies that work for Dorado are effective for tuna, perhaps with an advantage given to the smaller flies that have flash and movement when caught in the dead drop. Clouser magic and Marabou-laced Clousers are our favorites.Lines: Our favorite lines are fast-sinking firing heads or full-length integrated sink tips in the 400 to 800-grit range. Intermediate sump lines come into play when pursuing schools of fast-moving surface-feeding tuna with porpoises.
