WIDE-OPEN DORADO FISHING AT SAN BRUNO REEF
July 27, 2006, Alejandro Rosas, Super dorado fishing at San Bruno reef north of Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
I went fishing last week at Loreto with my son Alex, my compadre Joe de Anda, and other members of the Club de Pesca de Baja California.
There was a storm on the coastline of Sinaloa so the weather at Loreto, to my liking, was perfect. The air temperature was 93 degrees and water temperature around 82 degrees.
The sea was calm, with almost no wind.
Joe de Anda took his boat "La Josefina" to Loreto and will leave it there until the end of the dorado fishing season.
I fished with my son Alex aboard the panga "Mac'can" with panguero Tito Murillo. Joe fished with his son Yamille and friends Pedro Garcia de Leon and Miguel Enciso, all from Tijuana.
As you say, dorado fishing was wide-open at "San Bruno's reef." There were thousands. At times, the color of the sea turned blue with so many dorados. We took dorado limits and released close to 50 dorados each day.
My son Alex caught the biggest one that weighed 30 pounds. Trying to get bigger dorado, we went 30 miles from San Bruno's reef on a northeast heading, but no dorado.
We saw several blue marlin doing their tail dance and a few sailfish, but that was all. We are going to enter the fishing contest at Bahia de los Angeles in the Baja midriff area, from the 11th to the 14th of next month that is being sponsored by Villa Vita's.
