ENSENADA BOAT MATADOR FISHES WITH 4 ANGLERS
Oct. 1, 2005, Emerald Argonza, Matador Sportfishing, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico:
The Matador was skippered out of Ensenada today the Oct. 1, 2005, by Capt. David Silva with 4 anglers fishing at the 295 spot.
Trolling proved to be unproductive until Capt. Silva decided to move 15 miles west of the 295 spot and found a single kelp paddy and finally got his anglers into some serious Ensenada fishing action, with yellowtail first hitting a yellow-and-green Tady 45, and the boat exploded into action with yellowtail hitting flylined sardines. They finished the fishing day with a little over limit for a total of 21 fish.
Ensenada fishing water was nice, with deep blue color, and warm at 67 degrees, and with no wind at all. That gave the ocean a glassy look and the anglers a nice ride back home to Ensenada just in time for weigh in for the Western Outdoor News tournament.
Fishing at Ensenada did start to pick up quite a bit now for the past week and I do believe it will stay this way for 2 or 3 more weeks before it is finally over. But no worries here, since bottom fishing is always excellent this side of the border with good size lingcod, rockcod, bocaccio, and several different rockfish species that have open season year round. So far we have not had any fishing season closures yet here in Ensenada, so come and bring home some good eating treats for the whole family to enjoy.
