GOOD OFFSHORE FISHING INCLUDES WAHOO IN ROUGH SEA CONDITIONS
Oct. 29, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
At Magdalena Bay's Puerto Lopez Mateos early in the week Diana Hoyt of Mag Bay Outfitters reported rough seas, but good action for wahoo, marlin and yellowfin tuna just inside the Thetis Bank.
Enrique Soto, our Magdalena Bay panguero at San Carlos, fished offshore down to the south for the past two days and found good signs including lots of birds and bait. While there were good numbers of marlin spotted, they all seemed to have lockjaw. They caught a few marlin, as well as a dorado, but not the numbers that are normally associated with Magdalena Bay offshore fishing action.
Fishing at the Magdalena Bay entrada at San Carlos continues to produce a few yellowtail and grouper. Up in the Magdalena Bay esteros, the mainstay has been corvina. One fishing boat near Devil’s Curve managed to locate a school of snook that yielded a few up to 10 pounds. They also landed two red snapper in the 20 pound range.
Magdalena Bay water temperature; 70-77 Air temperature 68-79; Conditions clear.
