SIERRA CAUGHT IN FISHING AT PUNTA BUFEO
Dec. 3, 2004, John Tillander, Punta Bufeo, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico Fishing Report:
We were at our house at Punta Bufeo from 11/20-11/29. The weather was generally good and we could have gotten out and fished every day if we wanted to. Daytime temps in the low 70s, nights got down to 50. Water temperature was 70.
The sierra were running and we caught a lot of them, some in the 5-plus pound range. They were so thick you couldn't get a Krocodile through them to fish for the yellowtail that were also around. We caught a few of them, mostly small. We caught several small halibut off the beach in front of the house and we also caught Spotted Bay Bass and Barracuda. We did all of our fishing with Krocodiles.
The Sierra were caught mostly between Islas San Luis and Spira and on the North side of Spira. We also caught them right off the point at Punta Bufeo. Our experience has been that Sierra are really common in the winter months. We had really large schools of bait fish and they also drew the "Barrilete" or skipjacks, and they are fun to catch and release.
