BOTTOM FISHING ACTION IS RED HOT FOR LOCAL BOATS
July 24, 2005, Sam Saenz, Puerto Santo Tomas Resort, Santo Tomas, Mexico Fishing Report:
The ocean at Puerto Santo Tomas is standing still, with foggy mornings and low wind in the afternoons. The weather is partially cloudy with high humidity as the remnants of Hurricane Emily pass through.
The bottom fishing at Puerto Santo Tomas has been red hot for the last two weeks. Almost everyone is catching full limits on a daily basis. Chuck and his Fresno boys from the Fresno area loaded up while fishing for two days around the Rancho Viejo area. They landed a variety of bottom fish, which included whitefish, lingcod, rockcod and sheephead.
Puerto Santo Tomas surface fishing continues to be slow for yellowtail, but with an occasional good calico bass bite on the kelp beds of Soledad bay where calico in the 6 to 7 pound category were caught last week.
