INSHORE TIN BOAT FISHING WITH REBEL FASTRACS
Nov. 24, 2006, Torrance Eddy, Buena Vista, Baja Sur, Mexico:
From reading the East Cape fish reports for the hotels here, it is obvious to me that those anglers are not slow-trolling Rebel Fastracks because I catch five to ten fish per 4 hour outing while they are just over one fish per angler for an entire day.
All of the fish below were caught with 5.5 inch silver blue and silver black Fastracks. And I see no difference between the productivity of blue vs. black.
On Wednesday, East Cape shore waves were about two feet at dawn. So, I waited till about 10 a.m. to go out.
This time I decided to fish the deep, 100 feet plus water between here and Hotel Rancho Leonero.
Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., I boated 4 sierra, including 1 27 incher, 1 giant needlefish, one Jack Crevalle about 20 pounds, and one 12 pound skipjack.
That Toro, or Jack Crevalle, just about spooled the 20 pound line on my Jigmaster fishing reel. That's two Toro in just over a week.
The two bigger fish were caught in a pretty heavy chop with a brisk wind while flying fish were going in all directions to avoid the bigger fish below.
I have two Mexican friends where one likes Skipjack and the other likes Toro. With the two nice Sierra in the boat at the time, I released the needlefish. I'm going out fishing again on Sunday.
