Having good friends in China I can remember many times where I have been able to Invite groups and share this experience with them, not one time have they not been euphoric with pleasure, particularly one day two friends came to visit me, Peter from Beijing and Miles from Shanghai, we made some business related visits between Tijuana and Ensenada and after I was able to take them out to sea for fishing, the weather could not be more perfect and even though we did not leave shore on early dawn, we where lucky enough to secure a feast of fishes that included rockot, yellow fin tuna and barracuda, all during only a few hours, my Chinese buddies where so surprised, we came back to the marina and in the hotel the Chef was nice enough to fillet and cook a good amount of fish, including some of the eggs found in one of the fishes. It was simply spectacular, this was back in 2012 and to this day both of them cite this experience as one of the best they've had in Mexico. They where not only able to do good business but also enjoyed supreme fishing and dinning, when you hear the term work and pleasure, this definitely applies to Baja California, particularly when visiting Tijuana and Ensenada.
