GOOD BOTTOM FISHING AT SAN JOSE REEF SOUTH OF ENSENADA
Aug. 5, 2005, Sammy Susarrey, Lily Fleet, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico:
We fished at San Jose reef today in 61-degree water and loaded up on nice big lingcod and beautiful sizes of reds too.
We have been finding slow fishing for tuna and albacore out of Ensenada, but San Jose reef has been very good. We also caught a 45 pounder big halibut and a few white seabass to 30 pounds at this place. It is very rocky, with a lot of kelp beds and very shallow 100 to 180 feet deep. The bottom fishing is excellent.
Yesterday, the Tamara fished south of Ensenada at Maximino reef in the kelp area and did very well on calico bass and four yellowtails 15 pounders. There was no red tide at the Maximino kelp area.
