OFFSHORE SPORTFISHING ACTION HEATS UP FOR LOCAL ANGLERS
Sept. 9, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Baja California, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Barry and Val Wilkerson of Loreto, looking for an escape from the typical Loreto hot summer temperatures, decided that a couple-hour trip across Mexico's Baja peninsula to go fishing at Lopez Mateos on Magdalena Bay was in order. The possibility of great fishing at Thetis Bank would be a bonus.
They arranged to fish with Mag Bay Outfitters on their speedy catamaran which put them in the zone in short order. The wahoo that Thetis is famous for have arrived as well as the dorado (so that’s where they have been). Not only did they catch both, they spotted a considerable number of marlin frolicking about.
With Magdalena Bay fishing action heating up offshore there were few bothering to fish the esteros. Fishing at the Magdalena Bay entrada still has a few firecracker yellow under the bird school mixed in with the bonito.
With wahoo, dorado and pleasant weather, Fishing during September at Magdalena Bay may make sense.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 70-80; Air temperature 75-86; Conditions Clear.
