Sorry about the high jack but I guess shellfish counts?
I tried the canned abs from Asuncion and I thought they sucked. Tried two different priced cans and a can of caracol. Tasted about the same... Canned... yuck!

Neil Bohanon from the Fly Hutch had "The Top 3".

Steelhead, Tarpon, Dorado.

He only flyfished. Having caught all 3 I would rate tarpon as the best. But I've had dorado days that were better than tarpon days.

I like the lenguado suggestion. It's all so personal. Sometimes you're wading the surf for flatties and swear it's the best day of your life.

It's like that quote -
She: "Don Juan, finally you know what love is"
He: "Not finally. But once again"

Huh?

Wahoo. Fun to catch, good tasting, and yield more meat pound for pound than almost any fish.

Is "black cod" sablefish or black rockfish? I see it in the supermarkets all the time.

We used to catch sablefish off the redondo barge in the 60's, although I wouldn't rate it as a great gamefish. It's strange because Ray Cannon's book says they don't occur south of Monterey.

A great eating fish. We'd bring up 2 or 3 at a time sometimes.

Alaskan Steelhead on a fly. Big and fresh from the ocean. Haven't killed one in years, but have caught lots of them.

One year I was fishing Bahia Asuncion in November. I was Trolling very large
rapalas for yellowtail. I caught a lot of very large Calico Bass.
as we passed the rocky areas.
They were all well larger than 5 lbs. It looked like this was the place
where all lunker calico went to die. As for that 10 pounder you
may want to ask Shari if such a beast exists there. For pound for pound fight Jack cravel puts a real mean bend on the pole.
For table fare I like the Huachinago al mojo de ajo.
Light takle- for good fight and good eats the trigger fish.

I seen the same thing on party boats.I seen a women(a regular) land yellows at Catalina faster with a spinning outfit than people fishing heavier line. same thing.When you pull hard ,the fish goes into panic mode.Like pulling a halibuts head out of the water.
I don't think there is any difference between Cortez yellows or Pacific yellows.It depends on how you fish them.Heck,Harry Kime became well known for fishing Loreto yellows on flyrod.
I agree that fish sense more drag and pull harder but I believe it has more to do with water temperature.
with cold water metabolism slows down and fish become sluggish,water warms up and these fish eat,digest and reproduce quicker. water gets too warm and becomes oxygen poor and fishing suffers. I think this is the difference between SOC and pacific fish.
but of course JMHO;)

That's absolutely true. It's like a bucking horse. Sit on it and he'll buck. Get off and he's all calm. Wild things hate and fear being restrained. It's important to understand this because many people believe that fish fight so hard because of the pain they feel. It has very little to do with that.

Skipjack Joe -
Answer to your question-

Is "Black Cod" known also as sablefish or black rock fish? Black Cod is not really a cod, and is also known as sablefish and butterfish. I do not know about black rock fish. My source for this answer was this weekends ad from Santa Monica Seafood in Costa Mesa, California.

This is great!!! nothing lke a fishin gabfest,all the junkies get together and argue.

So far it looks like the Steelhead fresh and the Dorado salt,we need to do this more often fish reports are fine but pic,s are better,stories we need more stories which reminds me:lol:

Got a pic of one of our members I think I,ll show he doesn't get all that involved,you will see him in the off-road,but on this thread his gone wild which is great,I know one thing he knows the beach!!!!!!!!!! these are beach caught WSB:o


[Edited on 10-15-2012 by baitcast]




Anyone can catch fish in a boat but only \"El Pescador Grande\" can get them from the beach.

I hope when my time comes the old man will let me bring my rod and the water will be warm and clear.

Favorite fish to catch? Well in Oregon I would have to say Albacore, I live in the heart of Salmon/Trout/Steelhead country and I do enjoy catching them but after fishing Baja there just isn't any comparison to the burning runs of a Yellowtail or a Wahoo which by the way are my favorite fish in Baja to catch.
As far as eating goes its hard to beat Wahoo or Halibut~Yummmmm

Sculpin or small calico's. Barely legal, not the bull bass. Eat.

Barracuda roe is a favorite also.

That applies to everything in life find a mentor and save a ton of time,on the cattle boats there was always one guy who was hooking up more than most and always if you looked closely you would find Baitcast real close,I always spent a great deal of time watching these guys,it was always some small thing he was doing different.

We are lucky successful fisherman usually are only to happy to help when asked questions as to whats working,can,t shut some up but I always listened and watched anyway:lol:
