el Acro Hawkfish

My daughter Jess and I  had the unique opportunity to “walk” to el Arco (the Arch) from the SolMar beach this past trip.  I say unique because the Arch had sand around it for the first time in about 15 years.  This only happens on severe tides and only once in a blue moon or so. This small stretch of beach is adjacent to “Lover’s Beach” that you can get a water taxi to at anytime of the year.  I took along a fishing rod and a few lures just to say I have truly fished at lands end in Cabo San Lucas.  I was rewarded with several Hawkfish and Pompano that rarely, if ever, see any lures.  They are one of the most spectacularly colored fishes in all of Baja and have “fleshy” pectoral fins which they use to grip the rocks in the heavy surf areas in which they call home.   JJ Slater was along for the trip and shot some cool video of the excursion!
