FLY FISHING IN MAG BAY ESTEROS PRODUCES CORVINA AND POMPANO
Nov. 13, 2004, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Jamie Pierre of Seattle, Wash., arrived with a group of four to explore the fly fishing at Magdalena Bay. The first day at the Magdalena Bay entrada was perfect weather and good fishing with a variety of species including leopard grouper, pompano, yellowtail, halibut and, of course, a wad of cabrilla.
Yesterday (11/12), up in the Magdalena Bay esteros the fishing was tougher, with westerly winds and strong currents to contend with. They still had action with corvina and pompano, with white Deceivers and Baja Deep Divers being the hot ticket. Jamie and group will be moving up Magdalena Bay to Lopez Mateos today to fish with Mag Bay Outfitters and are hoping to get out to the Thetis Bank for some dorado, tuna, and wahoo action on their 26-foot catamaran “Mar Gato.”
Magdalena Bay water Temperature 72-79. Air Temperature 68-77. Scattered Clouds.
YELLOWTAIL A few firecrackers at the entrada.
CORVINA Still around.
SNOOK No luck this week.
HALIBUT Punta Belchers had all you want.
SIERRA Few and far between.
