Topic Review
Linda Advanced Secrets Of Tuna Fishing, says:The Parable of the Fishless Fishermen Fellowship: The fishermen were oruusrnded by streams and lakes full of hungry fish. They met regularly to discuss the call to fish, the abundance of fish, and the thrill of catching fish. They got excited about fishing! Someone suggested that they needed a philosophy of fishing, so they carefully defined and redefined fishing, and the purpose of fishing. They developed fishing strategies and tactics. Then they realized that they had been going at it backwards. They had approached fishing from the point of view of the fisherman, and not from the point of view of the fish. How do fish view the world? How does the fisherman appear to the fish? What do fish eat, and when? These are all good things to know. So they began research studies, and attended conferences on fishing. Some traveled to faraway places to study different kinds of fish with different habits. Some got doctorates in fishology. But no one had yet gone fishing. So a committee was formed to send out fishermen. As prospective fishing places outnumbered fishermen, the committee needed to determine priorities. A priority list of fishing places was posted on bulletin boards in all of the fellowship halls. But still, no one was fishing. A survey was launched to find out why. Most did not answer the survey, but from those who did, it was discovered that some felt called to study fish, a few to furnish fishing equipment, and several to go around encouraging the fishermen. What with meetings, conferences, and seminars, they just simply didn’t have time to fish. Now, Jake was a newcomer to the Fisherman’s Fellowship. After one stirring meeting of the Fellowship, he went fishing and caught a large fish. At the next meeting, he told his story and was honored for his catch. He was told that he had a special “gift of fishing.” He was then scheduled to speak at all the Fellowship chapters and tell how he did it. With all the speaking invitations and his election to the board of directors of the Fisherman’s Fellowship, Jake no longer had time to go fishing. But soon he began to feel restless and empty. He longed to feel the tug on the line once again. So he canceled the speaking, he resigned from the board, and he said to a friend, “Let’s go fishing.” They did, just the two of them, and they caught fish. The members of the Fisherman’s Fellowship were many, the fish were plentiful, but the fishers were few! —AnonymousAs he was telling this story I saw sorrow in his eyes for the family he has invested his time, money and love into for the past 5 years who have torn themselves apart by making a committee for each new task and then setting goals that they cannot keep because they have yet to come together as a family. Then I saw peace in his eyes when he had finished reading the story, looked up at us and said, I'm resigning and I'm going fishing. ]]>
Daniel Scott, If you are looking for VERY simple but economical, try Plaza Penasco. This is basically a place to sleep on a budget.
Scott Can you do any fishing from shore or do I really need a boat ? I grew up in Florida...used to a spinning real and using shrimp...pretty much the same there ? Also looking for recommendations on a nice little quiet clean hotel room with A/C. I'd rather not stay in a big resort place. I spent a lot of time in central America and prefer the mom and pop local experiences. thanks in advance for your help ! edgenaples2002@yahoo.com
George I am looking for a recommendation on who to use as a fishing boat service.
Any advice?
rich Pat,
Thanks for all your help. I will let you know how everything works out.
Pat HI Rich!
Gosh the fish was great! I fried some sea bass which we had caught in Jan., but I froze them in a ziploc bag, surrounded in h20. They were fantastic.

Ok, I found the receipt for Martine (sounds like marteeen), but he spells it like Martin. Martin Tavarez V. is his full name, and he runs the Margarta fishing tours. BTW, his boat is very plane jane, and so is his equpiment, its not upscale at all, but he did a full length bimini top, and he does have a porty potti aboard. Anyway, his local number is 38 372-47, and best to reach him in the evenings since he is fishing during the day. A USA number is 01152 (638) 3-72-47. This number is what he has printed on the receipt. Of course you will probably call him before you leave and set up a res; let me know if his phone numbers work.
Unfortunately I will not be there this weekend, but I see they are catching some Dorado at 20 miles out. Hopefully I can make it back in a couple of weeks.

Do you know where the dirt ramp is in town, behind the Surf and Sun Dive Shop (which is now also a "Jewelry by Patti store)?
rich Pat,
I will be in RP July, 23rd and stay until the 28th. We will be located at the Palomas resort. If you will be around then, maybe we could hook up and fish. Our condo will be under the name "Lund", but my name is Rich Anderson. Enjoy your dinner!!!!

Pat Hey Rich!
I am in the middle of cooking RP fish at the moment... Will answer you this weekend. Where are you located?
rich Very Happy Pat,
Thanks for the info. It is most helpful. Do you have any more info. on Martine? Phone or contact? I will take your advice and fish from a panga first and see how it goes. Can't wait to wet a line.
Pat Hi Rich,
Ok here we go!
1. The only time I have been able to catch Red Snapper or Large Groupers within 2 to 8 miles of shore is during the winter months, and we are working reefs. You can still catch these now, but you have to travel usually 10 to 50 miles out at this time. As you know, you can rent boats now in Rocky Point, but I do not know the cost as usually I take my own out. You might consider hiring "Martine" who runs both "Margarita 1 and Margarita 2", and let him know you want to go after grouper. I recommend you take along a large ice chest for fish, since they (the Panga Captains) just toss the fish aboard hence they will taste better if in an iced chest. I have also heard good reports from a Panga Captain named Fransciso, and I noticed there is a Fransico listed as a boat captain under the Puerto Penasco website. Depending on when you arrive, you can either make a reservation the day before you plan on fishing, or as you may know, hit he launching ramp by o630 and you can probably get a good trip at a reasonable price. Our trip ran 150 bucks for the 11 mile reef, and then we paid an extra 20 bucks for the filleting. We just caught triggers and sand bass and a few corvina.

When trolling (in our own boat) within 1 mile from shore we would pick up Sierra and an occasional Corvina. Further out, 8 to 10 miles we would get small Dorado. Of course bait fishing at about 5 miles from RP we would catch more Covina, Sand Bass and Triggers. So, I would consider heading out the first day with one of the Panga captains and be specific about catching Groupers, no Triggers or Cochita (there name for Triggers). find the reef they fish at, and then depending on the cost renting a boat for the remainder of the days and head out on your own for the reef you fished the prior day. The ocean had a tendancy to get rough in the afternoon and get calm(er) in the evening. As you know, you will have to make bait for the Groupers. Check out http://www.mexfish.com for more info on making bait.

So, at this time of the year, I settle for catching smaller fish, sierra, corvina, sand bass, small dorado, and triggers. Of course by heading further out, I know that I can hook up with groupers, large dorado, and perhaps sailfish. If you want to try shore fising, use large Kastmasters on on incoming tide and you can hook up with corvina. Hope this helps, any more questions?

Hi Rich!
Have you been to RP before? Will you be fishing with others, wife, girlfriend, etc.? Where will you be staying? Do you plan on bringing fish home, and if so, how far from RP do you live? Normaly I fish RP 6 to 10 times per year and we just got back from a trip there, so I dont' want to bore you with info you already know.

Thanks for answering my message. I have been to RP twice before and I fished both times. My wife and I will be staying at Los Polamas resort. We are 11 hrs away and like to eat what we catch and bring some home. I am the fisherman but others say they want to fish. Won't know till I get there July 23rd. I have all my own gear. Fished in a panga last time and caught trigger and sea bass. Would like to expand and maybe get some red snapper. I have all gear for med. to heavy rods and reels all set up. Any info on who to go with, costs etc. would help. I plan on fishing at least three days.
Thanks Rich
