Loreto, Mexico



Sept. 9-16, 2005, Patty Zapata, Hotel Oasis, Loreto, Mexico Fishing Report:

This is a very brief Loreto fishing report. Many things have been said for this past fishing season at Loreto, and there is no much left to add. We do hope the winter season will be a wonderful time for fisherman to enjoy in Loreto.

We have had few fisherman these past two weeks. They were looking for dorado, and this season it has not been very easy to find. Change in Sea Currents, "El Niño" and "La Niña," the global warming, change of weather conditions, etc., etc., could be the cause for dorado not to show at Loreto as they always did? Scientists and specialists will come to a conclusion.

In the meantime, on Sept. 12, 2005, Tim Bryaot and Rudy Hernández were taken fishing 30 miles out south by Carmen Island by Captain Francisco Martínez and caught a 25 pound dorado, on a lure. After a while they saw a sailfish sleeping. They threw the bait out and fish hit it! The weight was 90 pounds.

On Sept. 15, 2005, Jason Frey from Chicago and Jeff Hagen from Los Angeles went fishing 35 miles from Loreto, at Punta Lobos Reef to catch a dorado of 30 pounds, with Servando as their captain.
