YELLOWTAIL BREEZING AT THETIS BANK
July 23, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
In this week of fishing at the Magdalena Bay entrada, the yellowtail along with a few grouper further down in the water column decided to bite.
Fishing reports of dorado at the shark buoys, 230-270 degrees, 20 miles outside the entrada, are an encouraging sign that the water is warming up nicely.
Outside of Puerto Lopez Mateos, tuna and dorado are both being found 5-10 miles offshore in good numbers. Further out at the Thetis Bank, a few marlin are being seen along with some breezing schools of yellowtail.
The Magdalena Bay esteros (estuaries) are beginning to provide some fishing action as well. Devil's Curve produced a few grouper, snapper and even a small snook. Fishing further up the Magdalena Bay panhandle above Lopez Mateos there seemed to be a good concentration of bait on the estero side of the bocas attracting corvina and grouper.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 62-73. Air temperature 75-82. Conditions Clear.
