    Hey I know a lot of people here go south to fish Bahia de Los Angeles.
    I’ll be panga fishing a couple days, leaving Thursday to Monday, but I like shore pounding in my free time.
    Any off beaten path cool spots to shore pound in BOLA?
    Whatever Advice you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

    yea driving through Mexicali. Seems it might be a little smoother going through that route on a Thursday but the fallback plan is Las Vegas lol

    Take a few 5/8 oz. Krocodile spoons with you for shore pounding. Great for surface boils if you happen to see some.. Or, cast out as far as possible and let sink to bottom then kinda rip it off the bottom and retrieve at a medium pace while twitching every so often. Let sink again and repeat etc.. Triggerfish will chew up your swim baits, but those work as well.. good luck down there, sounds like a blast. ( bring frozen squid with you, if you have the means.. also shrimp.) Squid will catch a variety of misc fish down there..

    It has been 35 years since I was there, but we were robbed! Do not leave your camp unattended.

    The fishing was amazing. We only fished for big spotties! Every cast! Just drop and yo-yo a Krocodile. We saw some amazing YT boils but could never get on them. Every day we would see pick up trucks with their beds completely full of Yellowtails.

    Health filters in Mexicali and then again in the long stretch before San Felipe. If operational you will need to show proof of residency to pass, or get turned around. It's a crap shoot whether they will be open or closed, these filters are in addition to the military check points...

    But if you do get through, the road is in the best shape it has ever been - and since my trip in March they have even started paving the pot hole jungle just south of San Felipe.
