Anyone can be an amazing fisherman in La Paz, Mexico! / ¡Alguien puede ser un pescadero increíble en La Paz, México!

Thanks to all that time in the gym lifting weights, I can pick these 2 Yellowtail without issues. /
Estaba feliz que tachara una cosa en mi lista de cosas por hacer antes de morir. ¡Pesqué 2 Yellowtail!

Fishing in Mexico is always a grand experience. I’ve always had good times and they get better over time because every time I go, it’s always something different. But on this trip, I managed to hook and land 2 fairly big Yellowtail! Yup, I got lucky but that’s the beauty about La Paz, Mexico. Anyone can eat and piss crap fishing and catching nothing, then make plans for Mexico, fly out there, and then all of a sudden turn into a superstar fisherman! That’s what you call having the elixir of fishing magic and best part is – there is no pill or liquid to down. Just go is the magic ingredient.

Of course, I had to work for it but in any kind of fishing, I am always willing to do so because this ain’t socialism or communism where even if you fail, you still get something. Hell no! Not here. Only the men willing to risk it (and it ain’t that much either by the way) can going to catch the fish!

Besides, why wait until I was “retired” to do this? It doesn’t make sense as I read an article where people were more disappointed and regretful of the things that they didn’t do, not about the things that they do. Well, all I can say is that I’m achieving my dreams, little by little, but at least, I’m going forward! So push on!

Siempre la pesca en México es espectacular. Una persona quien no puede pescar muy bien en su propia ciudad en la que uno vive, va a caerse en un balde de mierda y después, va holerse muy bien como flores. ¡No, en serio! ¡Les digo la verdad! Un pescador malo puede pescar como un campeón o una campeona.
Pesqué y atrapé 2 yellowtail en el mismo día. ¡Que suerte soy yo!

Claro, tuve que pasar todo el día pescando y pesqué dorados (ya pesqué muchos en el pasado) y un amberjack (un tipo de pez) pero yo opino que lo valió todo. Es mejor que yo haya ido allá porque nadie no sabe cuando hoy es el último día de su propia vida. Ahora es siempre mejor que “mañana, mañana, mañana“ porque “mañana“ significa “¡jamás!“
