Hi San Carlos Anglers.  My Name is Jamie from Salem Oregon.  I am an avid angler forever and have been fishing Albacore tuna, Halibut, Salmon for 30 years here off the Oregon coast. For Albacore I started off trolling clones and cedars and throwing swim baits when the tuna would cooperate. August of 2015 I landed a 80lb Opah 30 miles out of Depoe Bay Oregon it was a incredibly lucky catch!!  Now we jig Shimano butterflys and live bait fish almost exclusively. I stumbled across San Carlos fishing forums several years ago and have enjoyed reading all the great posts! My better half Kim and I are planning to visit San Carlos. We will be down for the Music Festival and are staying a couple of extra days. I am looking forward to visiting your beautiful community  :D:cool:Tight lines Jamie

Hola Jamie, I moved to Sahuarita/Green Valley, a town between Tucson and Nogales about 5 years ago. I moved from W Salem. Brought my boat and took it to San Carlos. I have since sold it to a friend down there but I still fish there a lot.
I was fishing with Fernando about two weeks ago. We fished for a while and then got caught in a storm that made me feel like I was home fishing out of Depoe, Little Italy or Newport. I mostly fished out of Newport. It was raining hard and blowing that afternoon but it doesn't hardly ever do that in San Carlos. Rainy days are rare. I was on Ifish, still am, as Seasick.
I would highly recommend you contact Fernando as he will take the time to show you the ropes. He always seems to get the most and biggest too. My avatar is on one of his boats with "Ironman", the skinny guy, I am the fat one. 
I find it nice to not worry about going in the ocean and freezing to death but instead you have to worry about not getting sunburned. 
A lot of your gear will work down here. Have fun and you will really love the beaches, water and sun and food. Guymas is about 10 miles away from San Carlos and also has some nice motels and restaurants. I used to see opah out of Depoe once in awhile and some sun fish. Lots of whales here too. Lots of dolphin and fish stealing fur bag sea lions. I am sure you can feed the seals some yellow tail at the "island" like the rest of us.

Very Nice, and pleased to meet you Seasick. Any help always appreciate. After 30 years I will be retiring from the USPS in November. Thought San Carlos might be a great option for a Tunaholic :) Getting very excited out visiting San Carlos as we are hovering around 40 degrees and just coming out of a freezing rain event...

I still have a daughter in Salem and a son in Newberg so I get to keep up on the weather. Still using the air conditioner in the car here.
Tuna not as "hot here" as you might think. But still there sometimes.

Hola Fernando, I made it down and got a chance to fish on the "Catch Alotta".  I was with Mike a week ago Saturday(2-11) at White Rock. We saw you there on Bullshippers boat. I was able to jig up a nice Yellow Tail!! Tight lines !!
