FISHING WITH GUILLERMO GALVAN AT ISLA ANGEL DE LA GUARDA
June 10, 2006, Jeff Riolo, Isla Angel de la Guarda, Baja California, Mexico:
I fished Saturday, June 10, 2006, in Bahia de los Angeles, Mexico, with legendary sport fishing captain, Guillermo Galvan and his second captain Jose.
The weather at Bahia de los Angeles was calm, with very little if any wind, and with a nice air temperature around 85 degrees.
The water was flat and on the south end of Isla Angel de La Guarda about 70 degrees.
Bait pods were inside the bay and bait was relatively easy to make, both mackerel and sardine.
We slow trolled live mackerel for the most part in about 35 feet of water and occasionally threw blue and white iron. In no time we took five yellowtail ranging from the smallest at 27.5 pounds to the largest of 42 pounds.
The five fish totaled slightly over 160 pounds!
While fishing on the way back to Bahia de los Angeles, we caught a half dozen smaller grouper between 10 and 15 pounds to complement a fine day on the water.
There were numerous pods of small yellowtail of 8 to 15 pounds on top of the water in all parts of the Bahia de los Angeles fishing area, but we chose to look for the big guys instead.
Guillermo's super panga fished well, is very comfortable, and makes the trip across from the channel to Isla Angel de la Guarda in about an hour time.
Guillermo will have his second super panga fitted and ready for the same longer range day trips by next weekend.
Guillermo's super pangas have a small head inside the center consoles. It works well for the ladies on the boat.
