HOT YELLOWTAIL FISHING AT ISLA CORONADO
Dec. 3, 2005, Steve Dastych, Loreto, Mexico Fishing Trip Report:
Steve and Eileen Dastych of Minneapolis arrived at the Iguana Inn, Loreto, on Sunday, Nov. 27th. Hellacious winds out of the north prevented any thought of fishing until Wednesday.
By Friday seas had calmed and the temperature had risen. Loreto Carnaderos have not been selling bait, so Capt. Sergio Pena headed out early to make bait, then headed north of Isla Coronado.
We found calm seas, but slow fishing. Of four other Loreto fishing boats in the area we saw one yellowtail, one skipjack, and one hammerhead boated.
Around ten Baja fishing boats headed south toward Isla Coronado, and a little west. More of the same, then bam! Dobles! Hard and fast! We lost some, but boated four yellowtail, average 20 pounds, and one huachinango 8 pounds. We ran out of bait, and were pretty beat up, so we headed in.
