YELLOWTAIL LIMITS AT ISLA CORONADO ON CALMER DAYS
Feb. 3, 2007, Baja Big Fish Company, Pam Bolles, Loreto, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
The Yellowtail we're getting out off Coronado Island are from 10 to 14 pounds and they are breezing the surface.
These yellowtail want sardinas as opposed to larger bait.
Yellowtail limits have been easy to catch most of the week. It's been calm Tuesday through Thursday.
In yesterday's fishing, on Friday, the yellowtail weren't biting so well. But you know that the fish can sense atmospheric pressure changes that are taking place before we do, so off their off-bite yesterday indicated the howling winds that Loreto is getting today.
Today, Loreto has 9 foot seas off Punta Lobos. Yikes! I'm glad I canceled today's fishing trip out.
We're hoping for decent Loreto fishing weather again on Monday. Fingers crossed.
The fish that Enzl is holding in a photo we took on Thursday off Isla Coronado and was 1 of 10 brought in. They were filleted and I am smoking five of them right now.
For Baja private boaters in the Loreto fishing area, the afternoons have had really low tides and it has been difficult to pull out the boat off the municipal ramp.
Francisco has to wait until after 10 p.m. to pull out our boat and we're talking panga. Larger boats will need to wait longer.
