SPORTFISHING BOAT MATADOR FINDS BOTTOM FISH LIMITS IN SAN JOSE AREA
Sept. 25, 2005, Emerald Argonza, Matador Sportfishing, Ensenada, Mexico:
The Matador went fishing out of Ensenada on September 19th with 4 anglers and put them into limits of good sized lingcod, calico bass, olive rockfish, rockcod, white fish, and salmon grouper. All fish were caught using live bait in the San Jose area, which has been really a productive fishing spot and close to the Peanut and lower 500 spots if anglers decide to make a quick run for some offshore fishing action.
The weather was nice and smooth throughout the day until late afternoon, when a thunderstorm moved into the fishing area and showed some awesome lightning spectacles that got the anglers a little nervous, but with a very seasoned and knowledgeable captain like David Silva, and deckhand Chillie Willie, the boat made it back safe and sound, and the passengers were all happy to bring home a lot of good eating fish.
The offshore fishing report was really good yesterday for some Ensenada sportfishing boats that went out to the lower 500 and put anglers into limits of yellowfin tuna, yellowtail and a few dorado. The fishing water is clean and warm at 67-68 degrees.
The Ensenada tuna bite has been good for those that went out fishing during the week and will stay this way now, I think, and hope so for the next two weeks, just in time for the Western Outdoor News tournament this coming October 1st, in which my team Matador will also participate.
So for those Ensenada anglers that had been waiting for the good bite to come this is it and as we know, this will not last very long. If you're looking for a short run to get some good saltwater fishing action Ensenada is the place to be.
