DORADO FISHING SHOW PAUSES AT ISLA ANGEL DE LA GUARDA
Aug. 5-8, 2006, Mike Steele, Isla Angel de la Guarda, Baja California, Mexico:
I went down to Bahia de los Angeles, Baja California, Mexico on Saturday, Aug. 5th and fished on Sunday, Aug. 6th.
There was an area at the south end of the big island, Angel de la Guarda, on the west side that had a chum slick and sargasso area over a 1/4-mile long.
Capt. Igor Galvan of Bahia de los Angeles had fished that area on Friday for 22 dorado and 11 more on Saturday.
Unfortunately, by the time we got there the area had been fished out with only 2 taken on Sunday. We did not get any Dorado that day. It also was a full moon, coming in along with the highest tide of the year, so that had a lot to do with it. It was a bit hard to make bait. You have to get on the water very early, 5 a.m., to make bait and haul out to the fishing areas.
Saw Doc Abraham of Camp Gecko out in Ensenada. He said in about 10 days, the weekend of the 18th, the Dorado should be in full swing in Bahia de los Angeles.
We ended up going to San Quintin and fished that area on Tuesday with "Gordo" of Garcia's Pangas.
