CASTRO'S CAMP BAJA FISHING TRIP
July 22, 2006, Robert Everett, Castro's Camp fishing trip, Erendira, Baja California, Mexico:
Reporting from Erendira, Saturday's fishing started out in foggy conditions at 6:30 a.m. from Castro's Campo, with rollers to 6 feet.
Fishing was as typical as always, go out fill a cooler with rockfish of 1 to 5 pounds, fishing with jigs and spoons just off the bottom at depths up to 120 feet.
The weather cleared nicely and the seas calmed by afternoon. Several times, I spotted yellowtail hitting the surface around our bottom fishing positions and our pangadero took us to a couple of the surface smashings, but to no avail. I did manage to catch 1 Bonita of around 8 pounds, but no White Sea Bass which was my main objective. There were 2 white seabass taken that day from another boat.
All in all it was another successful trip out of Fernando's place, and heading back home to Las Vegas with 3 giant bags of tasty fillets.
