FISHING WITH THE CARNADEROS BAITSELLERS
July 21, 2005, Jeff Petersen, Loreto Carnaderos, Mexico Bait Fishing Report:
I fished bait with the Loreto carnaderos last night, and it proved to be typical of the two previous evenings.
The Loreto marina was particularly full of water on departure, a little after 9 p.m. Boats were being carried high above rocks normally climbed to. We settled into fishing for bait north of town in 78 feet of water with a near full moon, calm water, and comfortable air.
In the first several hours of fishing, maybe 40 baits made it into the boat through unrelenting squid. About 2:30 a.m., the boat swung on her anchor with the outflowing tide, and the squid disappeared. In front of the North Star, macarela began jumping into the boat on our lines. It being Thursday morning, Loreto´s slowest, a function of airline schedules, and with fewer sport fishing boats to be served, we released around 300 baits. Many fishing boats received bait at the new sardina receiver near the north corner of the Loreto marina. There were several fly rods projecting from T-tops this morning.
