SPORTFISHING BOATS AT SAN CARLOS ENTRADA CHASING BIRD SCHOOLS
Aug. 20, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fishing Report:
As the warm water moves up the west coast of Baja, the offshore fishing reports for Magdalena Bay just get better. Too bad there are only a few anglers to take advantage of the show. Magdalena Bay fishing produced dorado, yellowfin tuna, yellowtail and so many marlin that one of our captains pulled all the jigs in because he didn’t want to waste time on fish he couldn’t keep.
If this keeps up, late October and November could be exciting fishing. In the Magdalena Bay esteros, there are plenty of leopard grouper, snapper and corvina to keep the flyrodder busy. It is only a matter of time before the snook decide to get in on the action.
Out at the San Carlos Entrada the promise of action under the bird schools for bonito, skipjack with an occasional firecracker yellowtail mixed in have kept the boats racing from one flock to another.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 62-80. Air temperature 74-86. Conditions clear.
