TWO LOCAL PANGAS CATCH BOTTOM FISH AND BARRACUDA
Nov. 7, 2004, Sam Saenz, Puerto Santo Tomas, Mexico Fishing Report:
All week long Puerto Santo Tomas had mild fishing weather with no wind and calm waters with the exception of today Sunday. The tail end of the incoming Pacific storm is bringing in some wind and clouds. The last two big storms brought more rain to the Puerto Santo Tomas region than the total rainfall for the last three years. The dirt road has remained open and passable with a few shallow water puddles along the road.
The recent rains of the last three weeks slowed down sportfishing visitors to Puerto Santo Tomas. However, yesterday two pangas went out. Joe and Diane Lujan from Hemet caught full limits of bottom fish and loads of barracuda and bonita. One panga brought in 60 barracuda. The area was boiling and the trolling bite was hot. However, no yellowtail showed up.
