JUST A FEW SPORTFISHING BOATS GOING OUT
Jan. 1, 2005, Rick Barber, Mulege, Mexico Fishing Report:
The day after Christmas brought some nice water conditions to the Mulege fishing area but not too many people took advantage of it. There were only three Mulege fishing boats at Isla Santa Inez, mine being one. Not too much was happening there except for a few cabrilla.
The usual sierra, barracuda and mackerel were found off the Mulege lighthouse, Hornitos Point, and Punta Prieta. They're moving around a bit these days so, if you don't find them in one location, try others. That advice goes for the triggers also. They don't seem to want to stay put in any particular location either.
Mulege area yellowtail are being caught on both live bait and trolling at the bajos off Punta Chivato and Isla San Marcos. Marty Robinson caught some early in the week trolling as did Gary Green who was fishing with Gorm Irwin on Friday. Alejandro, Capt. Alex, took some clients to San Marcos at midweek and scored on some nice yellowtail but he had to cancel a couple of other trips due to engine problems. He'll be back on the water this week.
Not too many people went fishing out of Mulege due to the holidays but next week is another matter.
