FISHING BOATS KEPT AT ANCHORAGE BY OFFSHORE WINDS
Nov. 26, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay (Bahia Magdalena), Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
The best fishing action off Magdalena Bay continues to be at the “Finger Bank” below Punta Tosca towards Cabo San Lucas.
Fishing reports from the boats traveling up the line are that once they leave the bank, the action drops off pretty fast.
Wind increased for the past few days and kept most of the boats at Magdalena Bay close to the anchorage. While the reports are not wide open, it sounds like there is still some billfish and wahoo action to be found around the Thetis Bank for the persistent. Back closer to the beach toward Puerto Lopez Mateos, the dorado and tuna don’t want to quit.
Back inside Bahia Magdalena, several fishing boats including John Lyddon’s “Don Juan,” have found some fair action on smaller snook and grouper.
Check out my column in December issue of Pacific Coast Sportfishing for more information about fishing the beach on Magdalena Island.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 68-75; Air temperature 71-79; Conditions clear.
