LOTS OF SUMMER DORADO ARE PRESENT IN THE OUTER CHANNEL
Aug. 19, 2005, Abraham Vazquez, Camp Gecko, Bahia de los Angeles village report, Baja California, Mexico:
Fishing at Bahia de los Angeles has continued great, with a few slow days but mostly excellent. The yellowtails are still around, but are not the main target fish. There are lots of dorado in the channel, under Sargasso, sometimes hundreds of them. Some are more than 20 pounds, but most of them 8-20 pounds.
The fishing water temperature at Bahia de los Angeles has been from 81 to 85 degrees.
The dorado are found in the warmer "blue water." We have had some very clear water, but not really blue yet.
Making bait at Bahia de los Angeles has been easy some days and hard others.
The seal lions are out of hand, taking almost all the yellowtail that are hooked and sometimes even the dorado.
There are lots of Bonita and also skipjack.
Overall, the temperature cooled down. The last week, we had west winds every night that cooled down the temperature to the 70's at night, so it has been in the low 90's in the days, and the humidity high in the day low at night.
If somebody is coming down fishing at Bahia de los Angeles, make sure to bring 8-ounce sinkers, Lucky Joes, and 4/0 live bait hooks, as these have become very scarce in town now. Gasoline at Bahia de los Angeles is 2.08 per gallon. The road coming into Bahia de los Angeles is in great condition. Pangas are very busy. Even the cabrilla guides are catching dorado.
