NIGHT FISHING GOOD FOR RED SNAPPERS AT EAST CAPE
Oct. 31, 2005, Torrance Eddy, Bahia de Palmas, East Cape, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
From my living room I can see the two piers of Palmas and Verdugo's. I often sit in a chair on my roof watching the ospreys hunt. And from that even higher spot I can see south to the rest of Buena Vista, Leonero, and La Ribera. I watch the East Cape charter fishing boats come in every day between three and four and can count the banners and their colors as far as the Palmas pier. I need binoculars to see the banners at Verdugo's.
Two days ago I heard their were sierra near La Ribera and yesterday I boated one just a kilometer south of Palmas de Cortez about 40 meters from shore.
I didn't have a four inch broken back blue silver Fastrack. So I took the Black Silver 5.5 inch jointed Fastrack and painted the back with blue nail polish.
Night fishing for some favorites has been excellent. My commercial panguero friends brought home two of those jumbos sized coolers with nothing but Red Snapper yesterday morning fishing south of camp. They also fished for several nights near Punta Pescadero and over four or five nights had good catches of snapper and pargo including three or four dog snappers that exceeded 15 kilos. There is another fish that is neither red snapper, dog snapper, nor Colorado snapper and they catch a lot of them. It is all red with a down sloping nose and runs three to five kilos. I have caught half a dozen myself.
