Castro's Camp Baja California
Castros is located about 115 miles from the border and about 60 miles south of Ensenada. Castro's is in than town of Erindira. This place brings back great Baja Fishing memories; my dad took me here several times when I was just a kid. What I remember about this place is that the fishing is Amazing. Be prepared to catch a large amounts of white and black sea bass, ling cod, yellow tail, red snapper, halibut, thresher shark, sheep head, rock cod, kelp & calico bass, barracuda and more. Castro's can get booked so call at least 2 weeks before. Castro's skipper's names: Fernado, Jorge, Waldo, Oscar, Poncho, Victor and Conrad. You will need special poles here in order to catch the big fish. The poles recommended are short 6 to 8 foot poles with bottom or rock cod rigs set up, which consists of 3 to five hooks spaced about 9 inches apart. Best line is 20 to 25 pound test, however you can go heavier if desired. Be prepared it is not unlikely to reel up 4 fish at one time. The crew at Castros will clean whatever you catch for only a couple of bucks, which is definitely worth it.
