ROUGH WATER ENSENADA FISHING FOR BOTTOM FISH
LIMITS WITH KCHTS SPORTFISHING
Sept. 3, 2005, Gerardo Sanchez, KCHTS Sportfishing, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico:
Last Sunday, we fished south of Ensenada at San Jose reef, in bad and windy weather. It was rough. I had one passenger, and we got limits on bottom fish, 20 red rockcod, eight lingcod, and some whitefish.
On Monday, I went on a tuna fishing trip offshore, below the 238 spot about 18 miles southwest, and we saw a lot of fish on the kelp paddies, but they would not bite.
On Tuesday, I went back fishing at the same area, and we got only one dorado of 15 pounds.
On Friday, I went fishing again on a tuna trip with four passengers, and we got three dorados average size 30 pounds, 1 yellowfin tuna 12 pounds, and 1 yellowtail the same size. We lost a lot of fish, but other boats got a lot. We got those fish trolling Mexican flag feathers.
