Jon travels down to Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. In the 1950's it became the sport fishing mecca for Hollywood super stars such as John Wayne and Bing Crosby and it still attracts its fair share of celebrity A-listers. But its unique diverse marine ecosystem and a huge variety of species, makes it a must visit destination for any serious sports fishing enthusiast and the venue for some of the richest tournaments. Jon's spending a couple of days on board with skipper Grant Hartman, of Baja Anglers and he's set himself the target of catching a Roosterfish on the fly. To help him, Grant suggests they use the "Bait and Switch" technique whereby a member of the crew casts a hookless live bait to attract the fish, Jon casts his fly close to this, then the live bait is quickly reeled in on the first sign of a fish leaving it with only the fly to take. Other species seem to fall for this and Jon is quickly in to a few Sierra Mackerel as well as a decent Jack Crevalle before achieving his goal.
