NICE DAY ON WATER
Jan. 29, 2007, Ollie Peltier, Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco) fishing, Mexico:
Today I took out a boat that I recently purchased out for the first time. It is a 19 foot Crestliner. It's an oldie but a goodie.
On board with me were Mike Thornton and my brother, Jim Peltier.
Not knowing the new boat, I didn't want to venture too far from Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco).
We decided to try fishing at some rock piles about 25 miles out at a heading of 150 degrees.
The water temperature off Rocky Point was 59 degrees and the tide change was around noon.
We got to our site at approximately 10 a.m. and made 3 to 4 drifts.
We picked up 1 nice triggerfish and several decent rock bass.
Usually this fishing spot produces some nice Pinta.
At about 11:30 a.m., we moved to a nearby reef commonly known as the "caballo."
We baited up with squid and all dropped in.
My brother immediately hooked into a nice fish. After a short fight, he boated a nice 30 pounds spotted cabrilla, or pinta.
It was the biggest fish that Jim has caught, so he was pretty happy.
We continued to fish through the tide change, but didn't get any more hookups.
We headed back to Puerto Peñasco on smooth water.
All in all, it was a beautiful day on the water.
