SOME DORADO AND MARLIN SHOWING UP NEAR PUNTA TOSCA
Aug. 20, 2004, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, San Carlos, Magdalena Bay, Mexico fishing report:
It is that time of year when everyone in the Magdalena Bay fishing area begins to look to the outside for any signs that offer a clue about what kind of action will be seen in the fall. A few Magdalena Bay fishing reports of dorado and striped marlin have begun to crop up. There are reports of a few below Punta Tasco, more 20 miles west of the entrada around the shark buoys.
Small yellows, a few decent-sized groupers provided fair Magdalena Bay fishing action earlier this week.
Corvina continue to dominate the estero scene with a few pompano, pargo, leopard grouper and only a few smaller snook.
Water Temperature 67-78. Air Temperature 75-84. Humidity 23%. Wind West 17 mph. Conditions Scattered clouds. Visibility 3 miles.
YELLOWTAIL Can be found breezing under the bird schools or hanging around the pinnacles at the entrada.
CORVINA Pier, bridge at the entrance to San Carlos or Devils Curve all producing some action.
SNOOK Just a few smaller variety.
HALIBUT Cruise the shallows near a sandy beach with your Polaroid’s and you can sight cast to the flat rascals.
SIERRA Only a rumor or an excuse for every fly lost.
