I read about a bite from from Cabo to Mazatlan. Many released.

Heard plenty of great reports here on the cen/so-cal border last few years. Yet to get into them myself.

In Mexico though??? Epic

I heard the strippers in Mexico are biting well on greenbacks slowtrolled down the main channels. There's also a,good topwater bite going on and anyone who can whip a big popper into the midst of large marauding schools of strippers are getting hit on. For fly anglers, the southern strippers are hitting well on the old standby, a Spanish Fly ahead of tequila or Mescal teasers. The action has been so steady that already some Pangueros are starting to cash in and offer combo trips just like up north...offering combo Stripper/crab fishing trips...but unlike US combo trips..they guarantee limits of both strippers and crabs with every full fare.

All kidding aside..Maybe this has something to do with it...

Apparently they're farming stripers in tuna-pen style pens off todos santos, ensenada. Wasnt even aware of that...but it doesn't portend well for the baitfish population. But Cabo and Matzatlan is quite a bit further south than Ensenada with much warmer water. Just curious where you read about those reports of Stripers getting caught in Mexico?

On my daily menu from the fish company, there is a new option lately for MX ocean farmed stripers @ $8.50 / lb. instead of the usual brackish water Texas farmed wiper hybrids @ $4.99 / lb.

Has anyone alerted the Trump administration about these Mexican striper fish? Its a matter of national security!

Pretty sure you misunderstood the report. The report probably said they were catching stripers in cabo. A striper in cabo is a striped marlin not a striped bass.

That actually makes a lot more sense although I guess if they are raising them by Ensenadsa some could escape. However, hard to see them reaching the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez).

You're right, Makairaa. So much for wishful thinking. Although the idea of a striper outbreak in Mexico is kinda funny.

I am still holding out hope that the cobia that were accidentally released off central america reproduce and take hold. The tarpon that have swam through the panama canal would also be nice. DFW's worst nightmare, but I can hope.

It would be nice to hook a cobia but the chances are slim and slimmer.
