IT'S WIDE-OPEN DORADO FISHING FOR BOATS FISHING
THE BAJA MIDRIFF AREA OUT OF BAHIA DE LOS ANGELES
July 30, 2005, Abraham Vazquez, Camp Gecko, Bahia de los Angeles dorado fishing, Baja California, Mexico:
We have wide-open dorado fishing now at Bahia de los Angeles (L.A. Bay). The air temperatures are warm in the mid 90s during the day and mid 70s at night. The humidity is high at 70 percent. The winds have been out of the southeast mostly every day, and the fishing is great here.
The dorado (also mahi-mahi) just came into the Bahia de los Angeles area, we did great today while fishing out a couple of miles from Punta Don Juan. We found Sargasso with schools of dorado, in the 8 to 20-pound range, taken on live bait and chunks of mackerel. Some were actually the first dorado my daughters have caught.
The water temperature is 81-84 degrees, and the water color is still green but the dorado don't seem to mind. The dorado fishing stayed very wide-open today.
We caught and released dorado until we ran out of bait. All the Bahia de los Angeles fishing boats out there had no trouble making limits. It looks like we are going to have a great dorado run.
And yes, there are still yellowtail up at Smith Island.
