GOOD DORADO COUNTS IN WARMING WATER TEMPERATURES
Aug. 6, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
Looking at the sea surface temperatures on terrafin.com, it appears that the warmer fishing water is filling in nicely at Magdalena Bay. Diana Hoyt, of Mag Bay Outfitters, confirmed that the sportfishing for boats outside Boca de Soledad is great, with yellowfin tuna and dorado being found just a few miles offshore. Further outside Magdalena Bay, at the Thetis Bank there are reports of more marlin sightings.
Magdalena Bay fishing boats straight-lining to the entrada found a steady dorado bite. At the entrance to the bay, there are plenty of bonito and skipjack under the bird schools and occasionally some firecracker yellows show up in the melee.
As the fishing water temperature at Magdalena Bay continues to warm up, the bite is improving from San Carlos all the way up to panhandle above Lopez Mateos. Sierra, corvina, halibut at the sandy beaches and even snook now and then are keeping the rods bent and smiles on the anglers’ faces.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 62-76. Air temperature 77-82. Humidity 88 percent. Conditions clear.
