SLOW PARTY BOAT FISHING DAY AT ISLAS TODOS SANTOS
Sept. 22, 2009, Alejandro Rosas, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico:
I took a trip to Ensenada this past Wednesday and went fishing aboard the Shir-lee, from Sergio Susarrey's fleet, with Capt. Mauricio Marin. Ensenada weather was okay, around 72, and the water temperature was from 69 to 70 degrees.
The sea was calm in the morning from 7 to 10 a.m., then the wind started and it got a little bumpy.
The fishing went from poor to bad, then worst. There was very little fishing. We were 12 persons aboard, all americanos except my friend Jorge Jimenez and myself.
We fished mainly at the bajo of Todos Santos Island, to the north of the island. We caught 4 yellowtail, 2 were mine, averaging 10 pounds, about 8 barracudas on the big size, 12 bonitos, and not too many bottom fish.
From what I heard from Sergio, the fish are to the north of Ensenada, a lot closer to San Diego. A day before, only the Shir-lee and one of Gordo's fleet went out. Same results. Very few fish.
