    Hey Guys I was fishing down here in Ensenada just before the Santa Ana winds this past week. There was also a horrible red tide. Not sure how the red tide was up there. The red tide made it tough and I had to fish the grass beds in a shallow area which seemed to be protected from the red tide. Caught some nice spotties that way. Once the tide started pouring out of the bay, the red tide cleaned up a bit and so I started fishing a Lucky Craft. Here the video of that day Lucky Craft Came Up Big With A Nice Halibut At Estero Bay, Ensenada

    Also, here is a pic of the nice legal halibut that I got. It was almost 7 pounds. I also hooked a nice 4 pound corvina which fell off as I went to lift it out of the water. :(

    If any of you guys decide to go fish down there take some of your unused saltwater tackle (rods, reels, weights, hooks etc) and stop by Popotla Fishing village on the south side of Puerto Nuevo. There are some kids and adults there who could put it to good use. I see them fishing there with some beat up stuff. Also there's fresh cheap seafood right off the boat and cooked in front of you on fire pits.
