Surf Fishing the Mexican Desert: This is NUTS! (Pt 2)

Surf Fishing the Mexican Desert: This is NUTS! (Pt 2)

Today we are at a very, very remote beach here in Cabo San Lucas and we’re lucky enough to go with a family of locals. This is going to be awesome. Now we were here the other day on ATVs and we met this guy, Anselmo is a he was working at the the ATV place, Cactus ATV, he saw all my fishing rods and we really hit it off with fishing so today we met up, and uh, he took us back to the same beach and we’re going to be doing some fishing for for whatever bites, this beach is really good because it’s very isolated and it’s not fished too often so all the fish here are very powerful and strong, it’s going to be a good time. I’m going to be using the Super Salty Squid, shrimp, just come here and watch. [music recorded live in Mexico] [Brendon laughing]
[Erin] What’s going on? [Brendon] We’re in a minivan and we’re going down this really sketchy dirt road that, uh, we’re trying to get to this special beach here that we know there’s a lot of good fishing and we’re following this local who we met in, uh, the ATV store– in the ATV uh…
[Erin] Tour. [Brendon] The ATV tour. He’s showing us how to get–how to get to the spot, and there he is. [Erin laughing nervously]
[Brendon] Holy crap! [Senko Mom] Whoo….
[Erin] Oh my gosh…. [Erin] Now getting out is going to be another thing… [Senko Sister] She’s so cute…
[Senko Dad] Can we park here? [Anselmo] We’re still going. [Senko Sister] Oh.
[Senko Mom laughing] We’re still going! [Anselmo] We’re still going, this is the worst part right there. [Senko Dad] Ok.
[Senko Mom] Okay, we kind of were— [laughing] [Senko Mom] We are like, “where are we going?!” [laughing] [Anselmo] We’re going to go over there and we’re going to take this trail down like this– and we’re going to go over there.
[Senko Dad] Okay. [Anselmo] Where the rocks are.
[Senko Sister] Okay. [Senko Mom] Alright, we’re still going he said… [laughing] [Senko Mom] What if the horse runs into us? [Erin] They don’t look too concerned at all
[laughing] [Erin] Except fot that last one… [Senko Mom] How much longer? [Anselmo] Just over here. [Senko Mom] Okay. [Senko Dad] Yeah… you told me that 5-10 minutes ago… [Anselmo] But they were Mexican minutes. [laughing and clapping] [Senko Mom] Loco, loco! [Brendon] “They were Mexican minues!” [laughing] [Brendon singing] We made it to the rocks, there are many people there. [talking indistinctly]
[Anselmo] You know but here, we’re right here it was a little bit longer but… [Senko Dad] Is the bait in there, Sam? [Senko Sister] What bait? No, it’s in the car. [Brendon] I’m using the Super Salty Tentacles here [grunting] pretty tough… Do we have scissors? I’m just going to cut little bits of it off… [Senko Dad] There ya go! [Brendon] Ooh… Whoo! Ferocious! Trigger fish. Oh man! [Anselmo] That’s a nice one, buddy. [Brendon] Fun! They’re strong… [Anselmo] They are. [Anselmo] Careful, the horn. I’ll get you some pliers. [Brendon] There. [Anselmo] You got it? [Brendon] He bit on the Salty Squid, too. Yeah. [Anselmo] ‘Cause they fight nice. [Brendon] Ha ha. Gonna keep him and try him out. I’ve heard tile fish is very good to eat. [Erin] What’d you get? Oh, wow. [Senko Dad] Pompano! [Erin] What do you call it? [Anselmo] We call this Palometta. [Erin] Palometta…
[Senko Dad] Same thing, right? Pompomento, pompoetta… [Anselmo] Fry it.
[Erin] Mmm. [Anselmo] Cut, fill… and throw it on the oil. [Erin] Yum. [Anselmo] Uh huh, si, that’s how we do it. [Brendon] Any more bites, Dad? Bites? Yeah! Nice! Yes, another one. Man they are strong fighters, okay? They’re really strong fighters. –and they’re also really sneaky fighters, too! Feisty fish! I’m just re-tipping it with squid. Oh my gosh. Must be a ray or something. Pretty sure it’s a ray. Woah-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!!! Ha ha! I got a balloon! Oh my god! Ha ha ha ha! Ahh!! [Erin] What?
[Brendon] It’s spraying water! Look at that! It’s spraying water! Oh my gosh. okay, uh… I need pliers. [Erin] Wha–! [laughing] [Senko Mom] Tickle, tickle, tickle… Yeah! Awesome, nice one.
[Erin] Oh, that’s a nice one. [Brendon] Man, these guys are strong. They like the squid. That’s good! If you guys want to try a pack of this squid for yourself, it’s available in the link in the description below check it out! Look at it’s teeth. Look at that trigger fish. [Erin] How did we do today? [Anselm] Pretty good.
[Erin] Not too bad. [Erin] Oh. A lot of trigger fish.
[Anselmo] Yup. [Brendon] It’s getting dark, guys, and we’ve got to find our way out I want to give a big thank you to this family that took us out we had a great time with you guys, fishing is like a universal language, we don’t have to speak the same language to understand how to fish together and this is a classic example everywhere we go we’re able to connect with someone through fishing and that’s amazing. Our job here at Senko Skipper is to help as many beginners we want to inspire, we want to teach so if you’re here watching this welcome, thank you for watching, subscribe, like, and go to for more help. See ya, guys! [car makes horrible grinding sound]
[Erin] Oh… [Senko Mom] Good job.
[Brendon] Good job. [Senko Dad] Alright, it’s over, Johnny. [Brendon] We did it? [Senko Mom] Can I breathe now? [everyone sighing] Ohhh!!
[Brendon] We made it? [Senko Mom] Yes!
[Erin clapping] [Brendon] Yes!!!
[Erin] Alright, Mr. Mike! [Senko Mom] Alright, Michael! [Brendon] That should have been a piece of cake, we were just all being so dramatic. [Brendon] Hey, guys, what’s up? So we’re doing this thing where we give you guys a quick update after our episode as to what we’re doing, uh, where we’re going from here, because a lot of times, I don’t think you guys realize, the episodes that you’re watching were recorded around mid-July so you guys aren’t really getting the full view of like what’s actually going on with us lately um, so that’s why we want to introduce this segment. Anyways, so our announcements today: our meetup is going to be in Baltimore, MD uh, around the dates of August 20th to the 31st, we haven’t really settled on a date exactly yet, um, I have a location in mind that supposedly has a lot of fish there um, and the premise of this meetup is we’re going to be testing our brand new bait no one has ever tested this before– minus–minus Tommy Tek, Tommy Tek, he caught some nice fish deep sea fishing with this, but we’ve got our new bait called the Super Salty Sacs, and I’m not going to show you too much of it but I’ll let you know: it smells great and I think it’s going to work really well. Um…
[Erin] Tentative date for that meetup is probably August 26th tentatively! We’re not quite sure yet. Okay, so we–it– the date right now is probably going to be August 26th. Um, but that can change. Keep up with us on our Facebook Community Group if you want to learn more about that um, and be updated about that because that’s where we communicate a lot Senko Skipper Fishing Community it’s a private group, but I’ll let ya in. Um, next announcement: we’ve got our new knot tying book that is available on our website, um, basically it’s about what knots to tie and when to tie them um, certain knots go really well with certain lures, certain knots go really well with certain rigs, and I teach you exactly how to tie each of these knots and also what to tie it on and a description as to why it’s the best knot for this lure or this rig, but this is available on it’s digital copy and you can print it out and bring it with you wherever you go um, and final announcement, we’ve got a lot of squid! and we’ve got new bags! Look at the new label! Our new stickers. They look pretty good. and, I mean, the squid looks pretty good too, look at that. So this is all available at that’s it for today. So you saw all the fish that we caught with Anselmo and his family, next week we’re going to his house, he’s invited us to do a catch and cook at his place and it’s going to be really fun uh, stay tuned for some local flavor.

    Beautiful family fishing video love it, may I ask how many foot is ur fishing rod n what do you recommend for surf fishing

  2. TomyTek Outdoors says:

    That was really cool he took you back to that spot. It did look a bit sketchy at first. I've caught triggers similar to those in DE. I feel privileged to have been the only one to try the new squid. Thank you for sending me some to test 😃 I look forward to the meet up.


    I would like to see you catch a big 47 inch RED FISH & a 50 foot selfish from the gulf of Mexico 🙂 ?

  4. Roberto Santiago says:

    Dude luv your videos. Alot of great info. It's cool that you take your family with you everywhere which is awesome. Family is very important. Me and the family took a camping trip to capeHenlopen state park de. Me my son and father in law fished on the pier. In 2 days we caught about 29 fish. It was awesome. The Sabi ki rig was a hit. The different kind of fish we caught on that rig were pretty cool. I've got try the baits you use some time. Keep up the good work. Ttyl

  5. Gavin S says:

    My friend gave me some of your squid and I was tossing it out and ended up with 2 keeper stripers one was 31 and the other was 35 on the whole tentacle I might just have to buy some

    Always bleed them out if you keep them, and get ice and salt to keep your catch below freezing

    Which size rod did you use for this?

  19. lakailf says:

    Those Mexican tour guides/homies were cool as fuck! This vid makes me want to plan a similar trip with my family. Senko Skipper/Erin, you guys are amazing bloggers and I love watching your videos. They are educational and extremely motivating. I live in CA and these vids encourage me to get out to sea. Much love!

  20. Luis Lepe says:

    Hey senko skipper Ima be honest with you bro I love your videos but I bought the squid hoping it will help me catch something good but used the whole bag both the tentacles and the chunks of squid I purchased both. They both didn’t catch me anything at all …. I ended up using sand crabs and clam worked better ! I still have the squid and have tried it but no bites so I use other stuff …

  21. Mohd Amirul says:

    The salty squid can you sent to singapore?

  22. Ishmael Asad says:

    I was in the outer banks in North Carolina a couple weeks ago. I was there for a week, and I went fishing on the beach a lot. I used a bottom rig with a circle hook and a 3oz pyramid sinker. I had a long rod with a spinning reel (I think it’s called the Shakespeare Alpha). I went when the tides were high and sometimes even at night (not sure if more fish come in when there’s less light but I tried it). I was using cut mullet and bloodworms as bait. However, after several hours throughout the week, I only caught a single skate. Nothing else. I just don’t get it sometimes why I never catch any fish. Do you think there was anything wrong I did, or does this just happen sometimes?

  23. plim123 says:

    Is there a reel comparable to the saragosa from kastking?

  24. danielafiq 78 says:

    nice fish man he

  25. ladytphoenix says:

    My uncle did the same thing to us he took us off-roading it took us a hour to get there through AZ desert 🌵. He told us it was a short cut which was not it was a lone boulder road. But when we got there the fishing was awesome and we had the whole place to ourselves

  26. amjed oudeh says:

    Liked it before I watch it.

  27. Tommy K says:

    I'm so impressed with how your channel is progressing. You have inspired me to get back into fishing. It's been a long time since I've fished and have came up with every excuse since not to. Now having 2yr and 9m old boys and seeing your family dynamic and interaction with one another especially you and your father's relationship is inspiring. Skipper your knowledge is 1000x sound and you convey each lesson in a way that is both enjoyable and educational. Please continue what you do and wish nothing but the best success. Also b4 I forget please express to your wonderful wife to continue educating and advocating for our planets health. It's reassuring and brings a simple mindfulness solution to an important issue 💪 again you have a wonderful family good luck and can't wait to hopefully meet up in Cali some time. PS also love fishing shows not sure if you do, but the idea of your family fishing with other families of different cultures captivates me. You're a smart man I'm sure you have something in the works already. If not… You should!

    I live in Jamaica n I love watching u guys, n I have a question, how do I get some of those salty squid bait Dat u guys use?

  62. John Vogel says:

    You should have done some fishing for Pacific Sierra. They are a blast to catch and you can get them early on in the morning from the beaches around Cabo San Lucas. You can always find a ton of locals out there early catching them by Playa Pedregal. I go down once a year to visit my wife's family. I live in Ensenada at the top of the Baja and fish all the way down when we take the road trip.

  63. Ben Ben says:

    Where is this location exactly?

  64. brian kim says:
