MANGROVE ESTEROS PRODUCE CORVINA, GROUPER, AND SNAPPER
July 30, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
Both the Thetis Bank and the shark buoys 230-270 degrees 20 miles outside the Magdalena Bay entrada produced a few dorado this week.
A few marlin are beginning to move into the Magdalena Bay sportfishing area as the water temperatures continue to climb offshore. Magdalena Bay fishing boats working the entrada reported yellowtail and grouper and schools of breezing skipjack and bonito which were easy to spot with the bird schools chasing them down.
Outside of Puerto Lopez Mateos, dorado and tuna continued to be found in the 5-10 mile range of the beach. With better fishing action offshore, fewer Magdalena Bay boats were opting to fish the esteros. The few fishing inside had good success catching corvina, grouper and a few snapper.
Water temperature 62-73. Air temperature. Clear Visibility.
