I spent a few days last week chasing fish from the beach with my friend Jeff DeBrown, uber Baja fishing guide of The Reel Baja.

Truth be told it was a family vacation with the grandparents and little one, but I got a couple of hours in looking for creatures with fins. DeBrown uses a number of different ORVs to chase fish up and down the beach with his clients, and we did just this when I was down there.

But there are special considerations one must take when exploring on ORVs, whether it’s in Mexico or anywhere else in the world. Here DeBrown gives us a few tips for renting or using these types of vehicles when out on your own.
