Our good friends Matt Mohr and Janine Arsenault have just returned from Pesca Maya Lodge in Ascension Bay, Mexico:
“Thanks for the help putting our Pesca Maya trip together. Our first salt water fishing trip went off without a hitch.
The fishing was fantastic. Our guide, Louis, is a master. Where ever he took us, we were on fish. He and his assistant, Miguel (Louis’s younger brother), worked their butts off! We saw so many fish, that on the fourth day, when I was lucky enough to complete a Grand Slam, I thought it was common. Come to find out, it is a rare occasion. Thanks to Louis’s patience and local knowledge, he made it possible.
Janine and I have started saving to return!”
Thanks Matt and Janine! That looks like way too much fun.

This came in from Mark Sprague, who went to Bahia de los Suenos at the end of May:
“So last year was great but this year topped it. I had a tight timeframe to get a trip in this year and James made it work. That is what is so great about James and the operation he runs, he makes it all work easily for you. I was gone from Los Angeles for a total of 55 hours (left Monday at 10 AM and returned Wednesday at 4 PM), We fished the late afternoon bite on Monday and then full days on Tuesday and Wednesday.
You’re picked up by your panga on the beach in front of the hotel with bait already in the boat (maximizes fishing time). James sends his captains out to get bait very early so you’re always the first boats with lines in the water. He also has some other tricks that I won’t disclose but in summary you spend 99% of your time fishing and only 1% running for bait. The other great thing is that the prime fishing area is less than 5 minutes from the hotel.
Now the fishing – we were pretty much wide-open for big, quality Roosterfish the whole time. If you check other reports for Baja at that same time (late May 2010), you’ll see that the conditions were not good. The amount of fish you catch is strictly based on how well you fish because James gets you on the fish. I consider myself a novice but James gets you casting and stripping like a pro in no time. We had multiple double hook-ups each day. We out-fished the bait boats who would try their luck in our area. The highlight for me on the trip was getting the first dorado of the season. We’re fishing for Roosterfish and two streaks come under our boat (remember we’re 50 yards from shore). James yells dorado, I get my fly in the water and after two strips, I got the dorado on. James grabs his rod, casts and hooks his own dorado. Double hook-up of dorado on my last hour on the water.
As I said last year James runs a first class operation, is fun to fish with and has an amazing attention to detail. He knows the waters well and has the best panga captains. He also has incredible equipment (I tried 5 different fly rods he had before settling on a custom surf rod he built) and is not afraid to go through as many flys as necessary for you to catch fish. I know it is his business but I never get the sense that he is worried about the money aspect of anything which is very refreshing and makes the experience even better. This is a great trip for fisherman but also for their wives, husbands, etc. as they can relax on the beach or get in some fun fishing without a lot of hassle.” – Mark

“The service at El Salto was really super!! I can’t think of one single thing that those people had not thought of to do for us. And my very favorite on shore, were the rocking chairs on the veranda where I could sit and read in the beautiful weather. Really a very neat place. A Super Thank YOU Rachel for all the hard work!!!” – Donna Murrill
“My fish went 9-pounds, and Diane’s was 91/2. Both were taken on poppers. The guides said that the longer, thinner body of mine is typical of male bass and Diane’s shorter, heavier body is typical of females. The other picture is the, “Talapia’s Revenge,” – Ray Narbaitz
