    Since I suck at bass fishing and needed a little pick me up after my 5th skunk at DVL, I decided to dig up some pics and reminisce about my favorite fishing destiniation - good 'ole Loreto. I'm new to the site so since I haven't posted any fish reports from there, here's a whole bunch of pics from the last few trips:

    PB Dorado. Close to 50 lbs. Got 4 on this trip in the 40-50lb range.

    1st and only fish ever caught on fly - fresh or saltwater!

    It's a good sign when the fish doesn't fit in the hold:

    Biggest bait ball I've ever seen - too bad the "fish" balling the bait up were a school of manta rays:

    This is what happens when the filet knife ends up unsheathed on the bottom of the boat:

    Ready to fish!

    That didn't boost my esteem at all.
