PALMILLA BAY PANGAS FISHING OFFSHORE FOR DORADO
Feb. 19, 2005, Luis Duhart, Palmilla Bay Sportfishing, San Jose del Cabo, Baja, Mexico Report:
San Jose del Cabo had a busy week and beautiful fishing weather. The air temperature is around 80 degrees and the skies are clear, with wind from the northwest at 10 miles and the water is clear and blue.
We had several pangas going fishing out of San Jose del Cabo this week returning mostly with dorados of 12 to 18 pounds, averaging about 3 per boat, caught mostly with sardines and pink lures.
Some sportfishing boats hooked striped marlin of about 120 to 140 pounds, most of them released, and with mackerel bait.
We had Greg and Nohemi Brown from northern California celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in style: "FISHING."
They went fishing for 2 days with Capt. Gustavo in the Cristine super panga and with sardines they caught 2 dorados (mahi-mahi) the first day and 3 dorados and 1 roosterfish the 2nd day. They fished towards the San Luis Bank and also had a released marlin.
The reports are that the marlins are everywhere and the best choice for this week is towards the Gulf of Cortez the water is warmer there, in the low 70s.
