VACATION ADVENTURE SHORE FLY FISHING TRIP TO MAGDALENA ISLAND
June 11, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Earlier this week Jamie Pierre and his buddy Jim Lasardi met us at Lopez Mateos. Bob and Diana Hoyt, Mag Bay Outfitters had arranged this Magdalena Bay fly fishing trip for us and it was an adventure.
The first morning we loaded the 4x4 Jeep and Suzuki Sidekick on a ferry and headed for Magdalena Island. The exhilaration we all felt as sped down the deserted beach toward Cabo San Lazaro was very special treat. The surf fishing from the rocks was extraordinary. Standing high on a rock, sight casting to big jacks, pargo, snook and white seabass all in the same wave--priceless! Then a late lunch at one of the fish camps that consisted of all you can eat lobster topped off a day that we all will remember for a long time.
Devil's Curve went off this week with some fatty snook that got the best of our clients so they had to satisfy themselves with leopard grouper and pargo.
Outside Magdalena Bay, the west winds have prevented much exploring. With water temperatures climbing it won't be long before the offshore action begins to heat up.
Water temperature 62-71. Air temperature 66-73.
