GIANT HUMBOLDT SQUID FOUND AT SAN CARLOS ENTRADA
May 7, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
Still plenty of wind to deal with in the Magdalena Bay fishing area. Outside Magdalena Bay, weather permitting, there was some quality-sized yellowfin tuna at 210 degrees, 15 to 20 miles out, and that seems to be the best action for the entire area.
There are still Humboldt giant squid around, outside the Magdalena Bay San Carlos Entrada as well. The reports for the esteros have been very few fish, as even the cabrilla have a severe case of lock jaw. One interesting report was a 15-pound snook that was caught near the base of the commercial pier.
One more thing, closer to San Carlos, under the bridge at the entrance to town produced some decent early morning action for corvina, pargo and even a few leopard grouper. Sounds like the guys are overrunning the fish. Magdalena Bay water temperatures are at 62-71 degrees, and air temperatures are 66-75 degrees, with scattered clouds.
