LOCAL DORADO TAKE A VACATION
June 19, 2004, Ron Grant, Mulege, Mexico Dorado Fishing:
Dorado all but disappeared for 10 days to two weeks. No sign of them in any direction. One of the mysteries of the sea. On Wednesday one boat found six small dorado and released all, as none were keepers.
Then on Thursday, all hell broke loose as one boat found some weeds and good-sized dorado, 3 to 5 miles due east of Santa Ines Island. He gave a call on the radio that he found the fish and all boats came in and all loaded up with dorado.
They hit iron, live bait and cut bait for those that stopped, and feathers for the lazy boat that kept moving. Color of iron or feathers did not seem to make any difference.
A lot of billfish, mostly marlin, were seen in the Mulege fishing vacation area. Some hookups. Most any billfish caught are released. I saw none coming into the dock.
The runway at the Serenidad is in good condition. The weather was great, in high-80s to low-90s, cooling to low-70s at night. Water temp between 75 to 80.
