If you're interested in fishing from shore I can let you in on a few of the better spots to fish, what's bitin' what's not.....

I'm going down in mid March. What should I use for bait fishing from the shore?

Your best bet is to pick up some fresh squid from the fish market in Old Port. This should only set you back a couple of dollars.

If you prefer to use artificial bait or lures, small silver spoons will work, also any type of lure that looks like a baitfish (sardine) of about 1 1/2 inches in size.

But you'll probably get the most action from the fresh squid.

GOOD LUCK

Seadwellerr - just wondering what success you people are having up North? Here in Mazatlan it has been a terrible year for fishing from shore. Since October we have landed about seven corvina among the three people I fish with. We still go from 6 am until about 8:30 but are getting rather discouraged.

Last year in early April, we were mostly catching triggers with spoons from shore (near the estuary). Same story with the squid? The only bait we tried was mussels or clams and that seemed to catch mostly sting rays.

BTW the triggers made very good ceviche, if you change the lime juice frequently.

O.K. here is one of the local tricks that I was shown about 10 years ago when I first moved here to Rocky Point. At first I was a little skeptical, but I have tried it, and have had quite a bit of success.

It's actually quite simple as well. It involves using a peice of very shiney chrome tube about 2 or 2 1/2 inches in length, and the diameter of, Oh let's say an auto radio antenna. (the guy who showed me this technique swares that he didn't break the peice of antenna he gave me off of someones car).

Anyway you just slip your line through the tube and simply add your hook on the end of the line so that the tube slides over the shaft of the hook. You can add a couple of split-shots for a little weight. But only add enough to help cast your line out farther, you don't want it too heavy, so that it sinks. (you can use treble or single hook)

Now you just cast and jig your line back in. It takes a little practice to simulate the right speed of the little silverside bait fish that run up and down the coast during the spring. But once you do find the right action, the Corvina (Sea Trout) can't get enough of this tube.

I would fish from my kayak not far from shore in the area from Manny's Beach Club and around the point to the lagoon at the Vina del Mar Hotel. Usually with the most success in the afternoons between 3:00 and 6:00. This area is also one of my favorites for spearfishing with my Hawaiian Sling. (spear fishing while snorkeling) I have caught and or speared Pargo, some small Grouper, Rock and or Sand Bass and of course the ever present Finscale Triggerfish here as well.

There is one other trick, but that involves the use of explosives. I AM ONLY JOKING ABOUT THE USE OF EXPLOSIVES!!!

Thanks for the great tip! I'm sure that I have some old antenna pieces around somewhere (an old transitor radio or two in the garage, most likely). I'll let you know how it works out.

Shrimp are OK bait sometimes. A little trick I sometimes use is to cut a long triangle out of a fish's belly meat, with a little weight and use it like a jig or a spoon.
