Large numbers of San Quintin fishing boats are going out to deep waters and returning with good numbers of yellowtails, some up to 10 to 14 per boat. San Martin Island has become a hot spot for halibut. A good number of anglers stop at the island on their way back to San Quintin from deep offshore waters to catch a few halibut to have the chef at Don Eddie's prepare for them.
San Quintin anglers going fishing for bottom fish are having excellent catches of reds, lings. Also, sheephead have been plentiful. Overall, a very good fishing spell at San Quintin.

The presentations of the awards and cash prizes at Don Eddie’s Restaurant and bar was a great event. With music from our local Trio, fine drinks, and the raffle of rods and reels, bottles of aged Tequila, and song and dances from the participants and the audience made it all in all a great evening and with great fan fare, everybody applauded the winners. Don Eddie’s will let you know the San Quintin fishing packages that will be available for this fall and winter.
