KAYAKERS FISHING PRODUCES FULL LIMITS OF BOTTOM FISH
Dec. 3, 2004, Rich Buquet, Puerto Santo Tomas, Mexico Kayak Fishing Trip Report:
Tobey and I spent Thanksgiving weekend fishing at Puerto Santo Tomas. Two days of kayak fishing yielded limits of lingcod, Johnny bass (olive rockfish), and various other rock fish. All eaten at a beer batter fish fry on Saturday night.
It was all kayak fishing, one to two miles out from Puerto Santo Tomas, mostly northwest from the launch. The best bite was shallow, 75 to 100 feet, on plastics, Mega baits, irons, all with squid strips.
We camped at Sammy's Puerto Santo Tomas Resort. The weather was beautiful. A storm came in at midnight Saturday night, rained for 1 hour, then beautiful. But the storm made Puerto Santo Tomas kayak launching a bit of a challenge for the next day, so we packed up. We also took the 4-wheel drive trail and went north to the end. Beautiful, but no place to launch a kayak.
