SLOW FISHING ACTION IN MANGROVE ESTEROS
July 2, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
The wind quit and it warmed up considerably in the Magdalena Bay sportfishing area.
The few fishing reports received from the Magdalena Bay mangrove esteros indicated slow fishing, with corvina and cabrilla being the bulk of the catches this week. Out at the San Carlos entrada, there are still plenty of barracuda, a few yellowtail to 10 pounds, and down a bit deeper you may get lucky and get grabbed by a grouper.
Fishing offshore of Magdalena Bay is just beginning to turn around with a few tuna and some dorado under the shark buoys off Punta Tosca. Sounds like the mangrove esteros up at Puerto Lopez Mateos are producing better action with a few grouper and several smaller snook being taken across from Boca Santo Domingo, tight to the mangroves on an incoming tide.
The Magdalena Bay fishing area water temperature was 62-71 degrees. Air temperature 75-85, clear visibility.
