OFFSHORE FISHING PRODUCES 3 TO 5 BILLFISH PER DAY
Dec. 11, 2004, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing:
Offshore fishing off the Baja California peninsula at Magdalena Bay has produced consistently good action with the few boats in the area reporting 3 to 5 billfish a day along with a few dorado, tuna and fewer wahoo. The best action being found is in the southern sector below Punta Tosca.
Inshore at Magdalena Bay, the San Carlos area reported spotty fishing including corvina, cabrilla and a few leopard grouper. Mag Bay Outfitters reported fair-to-good fishing in the mangroves for a few snook, grouper, pargo and sierra near Boca Santo Domingo.
Magdalena Bay Water Temperature 69-75. Air Temperature 68-74.
YELLOWTAIL fishing produced a few firecrackers at the entrada with a few larger fish hanging closer to the bottom.
CORVINA fishing found some still around, but the size class is much smaller than earlier in the year.
SNOOK fishing at the northern end of Magdalena Bay seems to be the most productive.
HALIBUT fishing on the sand beaches and a slowly retrieved Clouser should do the trick.
SIERRA fishing produced only small ones.
