Surf trip description:
careful fishing off your surfboard, one day in january many moons ago i was with some good people on a drive to cabo. we stopped to camp at a place to surf many miles from 1 down a pretty long dirt road,5 of us in a van 12 surfboards 4 windsurfers 1 beach cruiser,1 mountain bike,2 fishing poles 10 gallons of gas, 1 gun, 28 large bottles of pacifico 2 cans of beans 24 tortillas,so the day has started off right we surfed head high warm waves in the morning maybe 4 cars camping in the zone, i surfed my shortboard had fun, so the afternoon comes we are starving only living on pacifico on this leg of the trip and having limited supplies due to the fact i always like to stop at little food places and support the locals when i travel in baja, so i decide i am going to go fish in the lineup due to the fact i had seen fish jumping in the morning session, so i grab my freeline longboard and my fishing pole with a crocdile lure and paddle out. casting 2 times a seagull comes flying around. i think to myself this is a baja seagull and must be starving, i wonder if he thinks this is a minnow not a lure, so i cast again sure enough the son of a bitch thinks it is a minnow and bamm! i have landed a seagull on my lure the damn thing swoops down hits the lure snagging his wing and flys off, well he ain't flying far cause me frickin drag was tight so i reel the stupid bird in and i try to get the lure off his wing and he fockin bites me. i pissed now so i grab the bastard by the neck and rip the lure out and throw that dam thing 15 feet thinking i am so hungary i should have kept him and ate that flying rat.I look over my shoulder gathering myself and a fish jumps 20 feet from me so i cast in that direction and slam FISH on. pulling me and my board in circles i reel him in like this ain't no thing until i get it close to the board and it rams my board i was like shit picking my feet out of the water not having and clue what kind of fish it was i circles it fights i am going what the fock am i going to do know i am 100 yards from the beach with i nice fish on, i am going to throw my pole but i think twice about it and decide i am not doing that just then i turn around and a set wave is coming 6 foot faced was so i paddle with one arm holyshit i catch the wave and belly it all the way to the beach with the fish still on i reel it in and bring it back to camp with 4 surfers about ready to have a bean tortilla lunch it was a 31 inch bonita fish tacos where on mmmmmhhhh starving with only beer in the stomach that bonita was great we pigged out.. tired and lazy nite sets in remember it is january so we are sucking down pacificos laughing about my bird to fish story and in the distance we hear the biggest loudest piece of junk car i have ever heard to this day, comes for our camp crap banditos so we chat with the 2 men and they demand gas i had already gave them a rash guard and surf stickers all over his beat up barely running ford ranger, i think no problem there is 5 of us and 2 of them, wrong 3 of my surf buddies grab 3 chairs and say come on guys lets go to the beach and walk off i am stunned and so is my friend that owns the van, so we stay i was not leaving the van for 2 banditos to pillage what were my friends thinking, scared?? So now it is 2 on 2 they follow us around the van not letting me and my friend talk to each other i was trying to get my knife and my buddy wanted his pistol that was to well hidden they demand more gas, by the way my friend speaks no spanish and has never been to mexico and has no idea that they are banditos but has an idea that something is not right, they walk to there truck giving us a minute for me to get my knife,they return with ski masks and gloves on and demand i lighter i snap and yell ensidollor ensindolor i think it means lighter in spanish grasping my knife, there eyes got really big and and they say Jose is loco, laughing and they walk back to the truck and drive off into the night with only parking lights...
