FLY FISHING PRODUCES YELLOWTAIL
March 12, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Magdalena Bay fishing conditions have had very windy afternoons for the past several days. You need to get out early to take advantage of the first few hours before the wind picks up. Several days ago, a few large grouper or maybe a white seabass were broken off at the Magdalena Bay entrada.
The resident small yellowtail continued to provide fair fly fishing on See Through Deceivers with an olive-colored back.
Early as it is, we are already receiving some vague Magdalena Bay offshore fishing reports of yellowfin tuna out to the west near the shark buoys. With only a few anglers fishing the Magdalena Bay esteros, it is hard to gauge the bite. The corvina have begun to bite and there were several snook landed and of course more of them lost.
The Magdalena Bay whale watching season is beginning to wind down with only about 20 whales with their calves still in the harbor to be seen. Magdalena Bay fishing water temperatures were 69-75 degrees. Air temperatures were 64-71 degrees, with scattered clouds.
