NORTHERN SEA OF CORTEZ DORADO CAUGHT BY TIBURON CHARTERS
Sept. 25, 2005, Jon Kay, Tiburon Charters, Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco), Mexico Fishing Report:
On Friday, September 23, I took a group Tucson anglers out of Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco) to fish at the 50 mile reef. We started to troll about 44 miles out of Rocky Point. We trolled a 6 line spread and caught our first dorado of about ten pounds in 10 minutes.
One of my lines was on a planer down about 15 feet below the wake and it picked up a nice skipjack tuna.
Fishing around 50 miles from Rocky Point, in 300 feet, all of our lines were struck by dorado jumping everywhere.
After that we proceeded to bottom fish. We were jigging with bucktails and diamond jigs and were slaughtering the red snappers some huge ones too.
We also picked up a flounder that weighed 12.6 pounds. All of the snapper were caught 30 feet above the bottom. It was another great day of Rocky Point fishing out at the fifty.
The water temperature in the fishing area was 84.6 degrees, and the wind was out of the southwest at 5 knots.
