We came, we saw, we...

...kicked its ass!

Well, we sorta kicked its ass. You never truly kick his ass. In the end, if there was a scoreboard, Mr. Rooster would have one in the win column - par for the course on the Sea of Cortez. But when you walk away from the Moldy Chum Baja Field trip with everyone able to hoist their very own cocks, it's an accomplishment. One with mayhem, gut splitting laughter, and smiles across the board.

Jeff DeBrown's The Reel Baja rolled out the red carpet and delivered a second to none experience. And, with jedi presence of Justin Crump and Kate Taylor, the waters off the coast of Los Barilles were boiling with all kinds of en fuego-ness.

Rumor has it pen will ink the pages of one of our favorite industry rags soon, so we'll spare the literary dogs-breakfast. If pictures are worth a thousand words, then someone should have War and Peace on their hands with this shit...


We arrived at night to this scene.  It was clear we were in a special place.  Aaron Otto Photo.

Morning came fast and guess what?  Still special.

DeBrown had us dialed on bugs.  Aaron Otto Photo.

Crump had something up his sleeve as well with this sardina pattern.

When running down the man we found you gotta watch your step.

Sometimes it was best to chase them with four wheels - after a quick stop for cerveza.  Aaron Otto Photo.

 There was a lot of staring into the blue - searching.

But we eventually hooked up.  Matt Jones Photo.

...and brought some lbs. to hand.  Aaron Otto Photo.

Same time, same place next year.  If it's half as good as this year, we're in business.  Jeff, Kate, and Justin really delivered a world class experience.  Please visit Aaron Otto Photography and Matt Jones Photography for many more excellent pictures of this trip.

In the meantime, we still have space left on our Kanektok Field Trip - join us for another killer time.

Incredible! Nothing like fishing for those big cocks in the sun! More pics please!

The pictures are all doctored and the fish are just replicas (albeit quite realistic). The above is all just a desperate marketing ploy. We caught nothing, the weather was terrible and we cried ourselves to sleep every night after eating nothing but stale peanut butter sandwiches. All the beer was warm and flat and nobody has even heard of a margarita there. Not one of us was spared from the evil swine flu (Baja has the most cases anywhere in the world). Next year they predict the jackrabbit flu will be even worse and that Portuguese Man-O-War will take over the beaches. Do yourself a favor, stay home, take a ball peen hammer and sandpaper to your feet and hands, it will be a much more pleasurable experience. Don't even THINK about going to that god forsaken place...

I'll NEVER be the same for it, thanks again for a trip of a lifetime Eric, Justin, K8 and Jeff. See you all next year if not sooner.

You know, if you had advertised that you were going to be fishing with K8, you'd have had about 3 times as many applicants. Just sayin'.....

Looks like an awesome trip! Congrats....

I caught a bluegill today and drank a wine cooler. :( Wow that looks like fun.

You guys should think about ditching the elitest hype. I saw you cast, and you wouldn't have been able to cast over my boat. You couldn't sling one over if we were twenty feet from shore! Its because of douchebags like you that these beaches are becoming more and more like our Western rivers, full of egos and teeming with losers like yourselves. Word of advise......stick with trout, and keep your egos and whining on the stream, and out of the salt!
