Edwin Reyes and Ken Franke (of SAC) organized a hugely successful trip in Loreto for California sportfishing. Thank you!

We joined Sportfishing Association of CA (Ken Franke and Edwin Reyes), venerable Baja photojournalist Gary Graham, and Pete Gray for the Let’s Talk Hook-up radio show which aired on Saturday, June 2 as a live remote in lovely Loreto, Baja California Sur.

The goal? Make new sportfishing friends, experience all the area has to offer for anglers and travellers, and report back on how we can support each other.

Sunrise from rooms are a highlight of a stay at La Mision hotel in Loreto, Baja California Sur.

Loreto is famous for seafood! Especially chocolate clams (at top), fresh cabrilla and yellowtail, and scallops. Ask Captain Art for a review!

It was a quick and easy flight from Tijuana on Calafia airlines that brought us to this seaside town of Loreto where we were welcomed to the gorgeous La Mision hotel for our stay. The ultramarine blue Sea of Cortez is at the town’s front porch and invites one to fish, dive, kayak, snorkel, and enjoy fresh seafood in a stunning location.

WE’ll post more about this special trip and share photos from Gary Graham. But for now,you can tune in to hear all about our adventures, including fish reports, from 7-9 am on AM1090 or download the app and listen anywhere! Show archive here: SHOW ARCHIVE
