Review the June trip report: 2013   (10) More Trip Reports

Dorado average 5-30 pounds, but 40 pound dorado are common most years, and fish over 50-pounds are available at times.
Join Mark Bachmann and Patty Barnes for an adventure in bluewater fly fishing.  Loreto, Mexico has long been regarded as one of the best Dorado ports in the world. Striped Marlin and Pacific Sailfish compliment your fly fishing menu along with Pacific Bonito and highly prized Rooster Fish.  The scenery is spectacular, featuring a starkly rugged desert contrasting with dark blue water.  The weather will be hot and and your clothing will be skimpy.  Fishing periods start at daylight and end in the early afternoon, allowing for lots of leisure time around the pool or walks into town.  There is also plenty of time for what may be the best of all Mexican traditions, the siesta.  As with any trip of this nature, the "destination operation" has a great deal of influence on your enjoyment.

Roosterfish average 5-30 pound, but 50 pound roosters are available at times.

We have chosen the most practical accommodations and the most experienced fly fishing guides in the area.  You will be provided with a spacious air conditioned beach front room at Hotel La Mision.  Guides, boats and fishing logistics are provided by Baja Big Fish Company.  In this trip all of the bases have been covered and all of the tricky details are dealt with.  
Mark & Patty with skipjack tuna, June 28, 2009
Skipjack tuna average 5-15 pounds, but pull very hard for their size.
Items such as Mexican Fishing License, bait for chum, lunches, water in the boat, are covered in the package price.  You show up at the Loreto Airport with your fishing gear and luggage and a nice lady will be waiting with a couple of very large vans and and a crew to transport you to your hotel and your room.  Mark and Patty will be there to help you get settled in and show you around. That evening there will be a group meeting to orient you for the fishing that will occur the next morning.     Loreto Weather Report.

2009 group having dinner at La Pinta Desert Inn...
For a couple of meals, each angler might keep a fish for the chef to prepare a family style feast. This program has been very popular.

To give you as much individual freedom as possible, ground based meals are not provided in the packages.  Hotel La Mision has an excellent restaurant and bar on the property.  There is also a wide variety of other restaurants within easy walking distance.  Cab service is secure and inexpensive.  Shopping, sight seeing  and diving is available for the non-fisher. Hotel La Mision features first class rooms and a spacious pool.

Big, roomy 26' Super Panga boats with Bimini tops are provided.

What can you realistically expect for fishing?  Many of the fish in the Sea of Cortez are very large and can be challenging. If you bring only one outfit make it a #12 weight with 300 yards of backing.  Take the time to learn how to cast it with flies that range from 3" to 9" long.  If you haven't fished bluewater before, expect that there may be a learning curve.  Also expect that your guide will be coaching you during your entire trip.  Your guide shouldn't have to teach you how to cast.  He should spend his time teaching you how to make practical presentations.  The rewards can be incredibly large.  This is a big boy/big girl arena.  Hope you can join us.  This group is limited to 12 anglers.
