DORADO FISHING ACTION MISSING IN HOT AUGUST WEATHER
Aug. 23, 2005, Ron Grant, Mulege, Mexico Fishing Report:
Mulege fishing weather is on the hot side, normal for this time of the year, tipping 100 degrees during the day cooling to mid 70s at night. There are some south winds in the afternoon chopping up the water.
The big difference in Mulege fishing this year is that the water temperatures are running higher then normal. I got readings from the mid to high 80s in deep water that would normally be in the high 70s to low 80s this time of the year in the Mulege area.
The Mulege dorado season started off slow in June but has gone down to nothing for a poor showing this season. Most Mulege sportfishing pangas are spending little or no time looking for dorado and for customer satisfaction are strictly fishing for cabrilla, pargo, and even triggerfish to fill the sacks.
There are lots of billfish in the water. Mostly sails but marlin as well. Mulege boats are out trolling for dorado but will pick up a billfish in deep water. Most are catch and release and few are coming into the docks.
The runway is in good condition at the Serenidad. The hotel open this month with mostly Mexican tourists.
