GRAY WHALE WATCHING SEASON AT ITS PEAK
Jan. 28, 2006, Gary Graham, Baja On The Fly, Magdalena Bay, Baja, Mexico Sportfishing and Whale Watching Report:
This is the time of year at Magdalena Bay, Baja California Sur, Mexico that both Puerto San Carlos and Puerto Lopez Mateos go bonkers as tourists come flocking to the area to get up close and personal with the California Gray Whales that arrive for a little hanky panky and family building.
If you can find a panga that isn’t in the hunt for the whales you will find fair sportfishing action for yellowtail and grouper out at the entrada. One yellowtail caught last week was in the 40 pound class with others in the mid-20s.
Magdalena Bay water temperature 68-73 degrees; Air temperature 68-73; Conditions clear.
