FISHING ACTION STAYS GOOD OVER FULL MOON PERIOD
Sept. 17, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Full moon and strong currents didn’t slow the fishing action down at the Magdalena Bay entrada. Enrique Soto reported leopard grouper to 18 pounds and a handful of firecracker yellows kept the clients busy on Friday.
In Magdalena Bay offshore fishing, there are still plenty of marlin sightings by the locals who usually don’t target them. Most of the dorado reported this week in the Magdalena Bay fishing area were on the small side and few tuna were found.
Shrimp season has begun at Magdalena Bay, and most of the locals have been targeting them. Few fished the esteros this week and the fishing was slow. There were a few corvina and pargo found near the bridge at the entrance to Puerto San Carlos.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 70-80, air temperature 75-86, conditions clear.
