San Quintin, Mexico:
Tuna, Yellowtail & Dorado Are All Caught At San Quintin's 240 Fishing Spot

Aug. 22-25, 2005, Julie Atkinson, Don Eddie's Landing, San Quintin, Baja fishing, Mexico:

San Quintin fishing area winds were 9 knots in the morning and 14 knots in the afternoon, with swells from the northwest, morning clouds, then sun, with temperatures of 63 to 78 degrees. San Quintin fishing water was slightly green inshore, and clean 8 miles offshore. The water temperature at Isla San Martin was 67 degrees, and 63 degrees at the 240 spot.

Fishing in San Quintin is hot! Catches of yellowfin tuna, dorado and yellowtail are tops, with yellowtails weighing up to 45 lbs., and 28 and 30 pounders are not uncommon.

Today most of the San Quintin sportfishing captains decided to fish the 240 spot. The captains reported that they are catching vast numbers of yellowfin tuna, yellowtails and dorado (also mahi-mahi or dolphinfish). Good news to all anglers! They are using live bait, blue & white iron, and feathers, mostly Mexican flag. It looks like the game fish are finally here at San Quintin, and in good numbers! and will stay for a long time.
