Hi - am new to this forum but it has been so useful to me in trip planning, i registered just to ask this question from you all! Fishing guide? We're going down for 9 days for the first time at the end of November to San Pedro for my husband's 40th. He's interested in 2 fishing trips - a fly fishing trip in the flats and a full day reef fishing/snorkeling/lobster beach bbq trip. We've communicated with Steve at fishingsanpedro and he's offered up Clifford and Erick, but we want to see if folks have recommendations for an excellent guide/boat for either trip we want to do. We had heard good things about Bicho but Steve said Bicho doesn't fish anymore. Any suggestions and contact info would be appreciated.....thanks in advance!

I liked Clifford the last time I used Steve.

thanks for the info - Capt Jeff, we've loved your reports. i think we may do 3 trips instead of 2 based on all your info on how great pete graniel is... one all day snorkel/bbq/fish with clifford & eric, a half day of fly fishing in the flats (can you recommend a good guide for that?), and a half day of fishing with Pete or Abel!

We have used Clifford and Eric our last two visits and will try to book with them again in January. Clifford's beach BBQ was excellent. In my opinion, as a daily lurker on this forum, any information you get from Capt. Jeff is as good as gold.

oh Capt Jeff - i saw on one of your posts that you did Seaduced for an all day snorkel/bbq - do you think we should do that instead of trying to fit fishing into an all day snorkel/bbq with clifford & eric? maybe keep fishing separate and go with Pete Graniel for a 1/2 day? he sounds great.

psaseattle: re: flying fishing-don't know Steve's flyguys, but suspect he has some. Generally recommended for flying include Abel(mentioned by CJ), Manuel Azueta, Daniel Espinosa, Erlindo Graniel, and Abbie Marin. You can book most direct or through your hotel.
