11 FISHING BOATS AVERAGE 6 DORADO PER DAY BOTH NORTH AND SOUTH
July 25, 2005, Gary Thomas, Mulege, Mexico Fishing Report:
My wife Peggy and I fished out of our new 21-foot Triumph center console "Stingray" 11 days from the 9th to the 23rd.
We averaged 6 dorado a day, along with one 300-pound blue marlin, 4 stripers, and 1 sailfish.
Most of the dorado were hens in the 8 to 12-pound range. Most of the few bulls that we caught were 10 to 15 pounders. The next to the last day, Peggy got a 23 pounder and the last day I got a 41 pounder.
The hot lures were blue/white and pink/white 6 shooter jets.
All of the bills came on bleeding mackerel venturi jets.
We fished a big concentration of fish off the north end Isla San Marcos the first 3 days, and then switched to the Conception Point area. There seemed to be fish in both places and getting back to Mulege from Conception Point is a whole lot easier than getting back from San Marcos because the wind blew every day.
I have never seen the weather this unsettled for this long of a time at Mulege. It rained 3 times while we were there.
The temperature breaks kept moving around from day to day. You needed to be in at least 81 degree water to find much other than skipjack and bonita. Water cooler than 81 was usually green and all of the beaches in the bay were green with lots of algae growing on the bottom. The bigger bulls seemed to be around 22 to 25 miles from the lighthouse on a 30 degree heading. All in all a good fishing trip.
