JOINTED REBEL FISHING FROM BUENA VISTA TO RANCHO LEONERO
Dec. 1, 2006, Torrance Eddy, Buena Vista, East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
There is not much going on at East Cape as it's cool and rather windy. On Wednesday night the wind blew really hard well out into the gulf because the surf was higher here yesterday than after Hurricane John. Needless to say, I did not go out. I plan to give it a go tomorrow morning.

For this fishing trip I had some company, Eldon Hathaway. We launched at 6:30 a.m. and trolled Rebel Fastracks through most of Buena Vista at a 20 foot depth.
We caught no fish for almost half an hour. Then we switched to a chartreuse Fastrac and immediately caught a sierra.
After three or four more sierra, I lost a hook tine to a four-pound triggerfish caught trolling at a 105 foot depth and I switched to silver and black Fastracks and headed for home at 11 a.m. with 11 sierra and one large triggerfish in the cooler.
All the sierra were between 22 and 25 inches and averaged about two pounds. All were caught between Buena Vista and Rancho Leonero inclusive.
I don't care much about the number of fish caught except when I have a guest. I get out on the water in my own boat going where I want in nice calm seas in lovely weather. Fish or no fish, it doesn't get any better than that. Fish are icing on the cake.
