SNOOK GO ON WIDE-OPEN BITE AT LOPEZ MATEOS
Dec. 3, 2005, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Mexico Fly Fishing Report:
Mangrove fishing topped the list this week at Magdalena Bay, with several boats choosing to sneak into Puerto Lopez Mateos through Boca de Soledad. John Lyddon’s “Don Juan” reported a wide-open snook bite with fish from 10 pounds and up caught, along with some fat palmetto amarillo or golden jacks.
Outside Magdalena Bay, fishing water temperatures are down to 72 degrees and the striper bite has fallen off significantly with only a handful of bites for the boats fishing at the Thetis and up the bank. I did hear some rumors of larger dorado up toward the Uncle Sam Bank earlier in the week.
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.
