A FEW SMALL SNOOK CAUGHT IN LOCAL WATERS
July 31, 2004, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, San Carlos, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing:
For the most part, Magdalena Bay snook continued their wily ways with the exception of a few small ones in four days. The Magdalena Bay fishing species count for the just completed six-angler Michael Williams group--from the Sacramento, Calif., area--was impressive.
Steve Fargo, El Dorado Hills, landed the group's best: a chunky 12-pound leopard grouper, that nearly railed him on an 8-weight.
Bill Bergan, Sacramento, came in second on practically the last cast of the trip followed closely by Charley Sumner II, Roseville, and Randy McBain, who also landed a few of the salty version of a peacock bass.
John Fitzpatrick, and Michael lead the pack in the corvina department, landing double digits during the trip. All in all the Magdalena Bay fishing species list included, yellowtail, leopard grouper, broomtail grouper, mojarra, cabrilla, pargo, spotted rose snapper, snook, halibut, lingua and several other undefined reef fish.
Magdalena Bay water Temperature 60-65. Air Temperature 75-84. YELLOWTAIL--Plenty of firecracker variety eating chartreuse Clousers on anything else that got in their way. CORVINA--White fly, red eye did the trick. SNOOK Saw a few grandes, but no takers. HALIBUT--Belchers had some 10 pound ones that could be sight-cast to. SIERRA--Nope.
