YELLOWTAIL AND MIXED FISH SPECIES LIMITS
CAUGHT BY VONNY'S FLEET AT ENSENADA
Aug. 29-Sept. 3, 2005, Ivan Villarino, Vonny's Fleet, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico:
This week of Ensenada fishing, first of all, had very clear water with no more "marea roja," or red tide.
On Monday, all our Ensenada pangas went out fishing at Punta Banda, and everybody had a good day with limits of bottom fish and some nice calico bass.
Fishing on Tuesday, Jay Johnson went out with Capt. Beto. They had a very nice day catching rockcod and a nice flurry of white seabass.
On Wednesday, we had no boats fishing at Ensenada.
On Thursday, our pangas Vonny-I and Vonny-II went out fishing in calm seas all day, catching barracuda, bonito and, bottom fish.
On Friday, the Vonny-I and Vonny-II went fishing again, and they caught more rockcod, barries, and calicos.
On Saturday, the Vonny-I and Vonny-II fished at Ensenada's Punta Banda and got into a good bass bite, plus limits of reds and at the end of the day Lloyd Mitchell on the Vonny-I with Beto hooked a 30 pound yellowtail it fought for 20 minutes until they landed it, and I now have to brine that yellowtail for smoking it for my customers.
Ensenada weather in our fishing area was mostly cloudy in the mornings, sunny in the afternoon, light winds in the afternoon, temperature 64-74, swells 3 feet, water temperature 64.
