SOME WINDY CONDITIONS FOR LOCAL SPORTFISHING BOATS
June 4, 2005, Dave Goulden, San Carlos, Mexico Fishing Trip Report:
Vern Berbeles of Phoenix fished on Thursday, May 26, 2005, out of San Carlos Marina, Sonora, 210 degrees, 18-20 miles out, and caught two nice dorado.
On Friday, after a Thursday night storm, the morning had some strong wind and choppy seas. About 1:00 P.M. it started to lay down, so we headed out to Guaymas Point. We saw lots of birds and tons of bait in the water. We saw 1 Marlin and hooked the BIGGEST Sailfish I've ever seen. However he spit the hook after about a 5 minute battle.
On Saturday, fishing out of San Carlos Marina Real on a different boat, on a 220 heading, to 13 miles, lots of birds and boats were seen. We had a good fishing day and caught 10 medium sized Dorado with largest nearly 30 lbs. Conditions worsened, as they called the tournament early for safety reasons. We followed suit and came in SOAKING WET.
Fishing on Sunday, flat seas went to 13 miles on 220, nothing seen. We went on to 25 miles out, and it was "NON STOP ACTION" on Dorado for 5 hours, Many were released. KEEPERS were in the 20-30 lb. range. It was too much so we called it a day and headed into San Carlos early.
