Over $700 for 2 fish, and a surly captain.
We booked 2 days of fishing in advance of arrival from slick owner. The first day we were picked up on time but were told "no bait today". We spent all day long driving in circles trolling lures. Not a single bite. About 3 hours into it the Captain told us "no fish today".
Back at the hotel we talked to some people who went with the other fleets (Mosquito and Tailhunter) that HAD bait. One boat had caught several large Dorado that day.
The second day Baja Pirates was 30 minutes late picking us up. Same surly captain, but this time there WAS bait ($25 extra, read the fine print). We caught 2 medium Dorado in the first 90 minutes (lots of fun). Inexplicably the Captain had enough and we spent the next 4 hours using the artificial lures with no results.
The Captain of the other Pirate boat caught his own bait for the clients (at no charge). They caught several fish, so maybe we were just unlucky. The other clients were happy.
Our experience was very bad. There is no excuse for not catching fish in a place like this, especially when the other fleets are hauling them in.
