WINDS AND SCRATCHY FISHING NORTH OF TOWN
Nov. 12, 2005, Don Bear, Loreto, Baja Sur, Mexico Fishing Report:
The paving of the street in front of my house was finally completed a couple of weeks ago, although we're still without sidewalks. I was able to get my boat out for the first time since late July by bringing in dirt to fill the trench between my driveway and the street pavement.
On Tuesday (11/8) my Loreto neighbors Charlie Litcha and Michael Hartmann joined Capt. Paulino Martinez and me on a beautiful day for fishing.
We went as far north as Punta Pulpito, with stops at San Bruno and Puerto Almeja along the way, with limited success. Out total catch for the day was 1 yellowtail about 15 lbs., 1 small huachinango, 1 sailfish, and 6 barrilete.
On Friday, my son Doug and I fished with Paulino, and today under very windy conditions that kept us close to Isla Coronado. Bait was available yesterday, but not today, for the north wind kept the carnaderos from going out last night.
Both days we were able to net sardinas in the marina.
On Friday we caught a huge rooster fish, about 45 lbs., 3 small dorado about 5 lbs., and 1 barrilete.
Today we had not one strike! Given the weather, we probably shouldn't have left the dock.
