GOOD DORADO FISHING WITH PANGA CAPTAIN MATEO APODACA
Sept. 26, 2006, Emilio Carballido Jr., Mulege, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
We fished in Mulege this past weekend with Captain Mateo Apodaca.
We had excellent conditions. Mulege is recovering fast from the storm.
We fished on Friday, Sept. 22nd for a catch of 6 dorados trolling purple and blue feathers, and Saturday for a catch of 20 dorados on feathers and bait. Saturday's fishing was wide open. The dorado ranged between 15 and 25 pounds and a couple of big 35 pound dorados were also caught.
I went fishing with my dad Emilio Carballido Sr. and my friend Alex Topete, from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.
We drove down to Mulege from Mexicali. It took us approximately 12 hours. The road is under repair near Santa Rosalia and at almost every dip all the way to Mulege.
We stayed at the Hotel Serenidad, which was supposed to be closed for maintenance.
There were a couple of helicopters and planes landing and taking of from the Serenidad runway, which is in very good condition.
On Friday there was another panga fishing at Mulege. I think they only caught two dorados.
And on Saturday there was a private boat trolling near our location, and they were catching Dorados too, but I don't know how man).
We were fishing to the southeast of Mulege, like 10 to 15 miles out, just in front of the mountains that separate Bahía Concepción from the Sea of Cortez.
