SNOOK SHOW UP AT DEVIL'S CURVE
April 2, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
After several weeks of windy conditions, the Magdalena Bay fishing area finally settled down with welcome sunny skies and no wind. Up at Devil's Curve, the snook began to bite and I heard of at least one that was in the 25-pound class.
Fishing at the Magdalena Bay entrada, there were a few small firecracker yellowtail as well as sierra under the bird schools. Outside Magdalena Bay, there were plenty of skipjack to keep the rods bent.
Diana Hoyt, Mag Bay Outfitters, Lopez Mateos, reported some large snook during fishing at Boca de Soledad along with plenty of pompano. Still nothing of note to report offshore.
The Magdalena Bay water temperature was 69-75 degrees, and the air temperature 66-82 degrees, with calm conditions and scattered clouds.
