POST-STORM SPORTFISHING EXCELLENT FOR DORADO
Sept. 19, 2006, Gary Thomas, Mulege, Baja Sur, Mexico:
I returned this morning from Mulege. I stopped by the SAGARPA oficina in Santa Rosalia and the guy said that he did not know of any closures in the area for sportfishing boats.
I had Capt. Alex talk to the port captain in Mulege and he said the same. If you can launch it, you can go out.
The ramp on the north side of the river by the light house is no longer there.
I fished by myself on Saturday the 16th of September.
The dorado fishing is so good it's just crazy. I left the dock at 10:30 a.m. and was back at 2:30 p.m. I caught 14 dorado to 32 pounds, 3 hens and 11 bulls, all on the usual feathers. Several of the bulls were over 20 pounds.
I also found yellowfin tuna on top twice down by Punta Teresa, but when I would drop a line, a dorado would grab it immediately. I finally gave up on the tuna and headed in, but they are there.
Mulege weather was perfect, in the mid 80s and the water was about 83 degrees.
There was 1 other American and 1 panga launched at the Serenidad ramp that day. There is no problem launching there, but be careful as part of the dock fell over and is under the water creating a hazard.
