DORADO THICK FOR ANGLERS FISHING OUT OF MAG BAY
Oct. 29, 2004, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing:
What a difference a week makes! Offshore, the dorado (also mahi-mahi or dolphinfish) are thick with a enough wahoo to put your teasers in peril. While far from wide-open, the complaint this week was that it was difficult to get past the dorado and wahoo to catch the marlin.
Strong currents at the Magdalena Bay entrada slowed things down this week and the esteros continued to bump along with only fair fishing for corvina, cabrilla and an occasional grouper.
Magdalena Bay water Temperature 72-79. Air Temperature 71-77.
SNOOK A few smaller ones.
YELLOWTAIL As the current subsides they began to bite again.
CORVINA The high spot in a slow week.
HALIBUT You can always find a few in the shallow water near sandy beaches.
SIERRA Watch under the bird schools throughout the bay.
