GRAY WHALE MIGRATION ARRIVING IN NUMBERS
Jan. 21, 2006, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay (Bahia Magdalena), Mexico Sportfishing Report:
More and more Caifornia Gray Whales arriving at Magdalena Bay each week and both San Carlos and Puerto Lopez Mateos are more focused on whale watching than fishing.
There was some sportfishing action for corvina at the pier in San Carlos as well as under the bridge at the entrance to San Carlos.
The fishing boats at Lopez Mateos have stayed close to home and reported fair action for corvina, grouper and the ever-present spotted bay bass. Also, there’s a decent halibut bite in shallow near sandy beaches.
Magdalena Bay water temperature is 68-73 degrees; Air temperature 68-73 degrees; Conditions clear.
