It’s time once again to be on the look out for the elusive White Sea Bass. Seems that they are somewhat late this year at San Quintin, just like all the other species were.
Considering the circumstance that prevails in the San Quintin sportfishing area, Don Eddie sent a boat out fishing, the Maria Magdalena, with Captain Jaime Garcia and his assistant Danny Garcia, to scout out the different fishing holes where this type of fish usually abound.
They found them! The birds guided them exactly where they were, in the San Ramon area. It was a good school of fish. They caught 3 white seabass, lost two of them, and ended up with one. They used shiny irons for the White Sea Bass.
In the same area at San Ramon, they caught 5 good-sized Yellowtails, using live bait. So we know that the White Sea Bass are in the area. Yellowtail have been plentiful, ranging from 17 to 27 pounds. Also bottom fish have been exceptionally big and heavy this year. Some Dorado’s are being caught by San Quintin fishing boats on the 240 and the 180 spots using green and yellow Rapalas, some Mexican flags and cedar plugs.
