YELLOWTAIL RETURN TO THE L.A. BAY FISHING AREA
July 8, 2006, Abraham Vazquez, Camp Gecko, Bahia de los Angeles, Baja California, Mexico:
Bahia de los Angeles weather is a little hot now. We hit 100 degrees today with very low humidity, but recently the weather here has been very consistent in the mid to low 90's with high humidity and not much wind at all. Bahia de los Angeles had some overcast the past week and some rain also. Now it is clear.
The sportfishing picked up considerably at Bahia de los Angeles after a slow week earlier.
Now there seem to be yellowtail in many places. The hot spots have been Guadalupe reef, Smith Island, Piojo Island, Punta Don Juan, Soldado reef, and also Isla Partida and the other side of Isla Angel de la Guarda.
The best fish have been caught on live bait but the smaller yellowtail are taking the iron well, lots of them in the 6 to 10 pound range, and also some nicer ones in the 15 to 20 range.
There is also a good bite on grouper and some huachinango at Bahia de los Angeles, but dorado yet. But the water temperature is warming up fast and it is 77-81 degrees now, so any week we should get invaded by dorado.
There are still lots of giant squid here, some days more than others.
The bait is getting harder to catch now.
