Tony Reyes and the Sea of Cortez deliver again

Heading back to the Tony Reyes one night last week after another awesome day of fishing we were talking about what color the sunset was, and how you would describe it to someone, we came to the conclusion that pictures or descriptions don’t really do it justice, you have to be there to really appreciate it but here is kind of what it looks like.

The other thing you have to experience in order to really understand is a week aboard the Tony Reyes for some of the best fishing you will ever experience, the 27 anglers that were on the annual Steve Enright charter were very excited to get the experience under way, as usual most of the faces were familiar with a few new additions and few subtractions, Ted Windom who had been a regular on our charter lost his battle to cancer a few weeks before our charter and was and will be sorely missed, he was always a joy to fish with and be around, he brought an infectious joy for life and fishing that spread to those around him.

Tony Reyes Trip Report and Fish Count for June 3rd-8th, 2011

June 11, 2012 – 6:52 pm
        Tony just returned from a six day trip fishing in the Midriff Islands.  Wide open Yellowtail and Cabrillas between La Rasa and Salsipuedes Islands.  Yellowtails were boiling on the surface eating bait.  Light jigs casting on the surface were working very well.  In San Francisquito area they spent two days fishing because the fishing was wide open.  Nice weather calm and cool with occasional fog which is normal for this time of year.  Live bait was tough to catch.  Cabrillas are still biting on jigs like the salas DX, green and yellow is the best color.  Mirror lures orange, pink and blue are working very well.  Overall it was a very good trip.  The road to Mexicali to San Felipe has some construction and all anglers are reminded to obtain a free seven day visa at the border prior to the trip.
Limits            Yellowtail        up to 35lbs.
350                Cabrilla           up to 20lbs.
201                Bass                up to 4lbs.
2                    Pargos             up to 15lbs.

Hot off the press guys!

Fishing with Tony Reyes!           5/27-6/2 2012
Fishing with Tony Reyes is simple the best! Tony’s trips are a great adventure, the best in fishing, and a great value.
   We had a week of cool weather and virtually no wind! Each of these trips is composed of a core group that knows each other a bunch or soon to be friends. We fished and explored the Sea of Cortez together. We saw many Osprey, thousands of Terns and Gulls and Sea Turtles were commonly seen. Fin whales, Killer whales
Pilot Whales and Dolphins were almost constantly in view. These trips are great “ECOTOURS”.
          Yellowtail to 33-lbs. were caught, many of the Cabrillas taken weighed 20-lbs or more. Even an early Dorado pounded on a trolled plug! This is a good Dorado season sign. We are all come home with a ice chest filled with frozen vacuum packed filets, all part of the trip. If you want an adventure of a lifetime, have one of these trips.
