San Quintin, Mexico:
White Seabass Still Biting For Boats Fishing At El Socorro South Of Bay

Dec. 3, 2005, Pete Hillis, Pedro's Pangas,, San Quintin, Baja fishing, Mexico:

Not too many sportfishing boats went out again this week at San Quintin. We only had 6 trips out this week.

White seabass were still hitting at Socorro on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday evening the wind came up and prevented San Quintin fishing boats from making the 13 mile trip to the south.

Winds stopped on Saturday evening and most San Quintin boats fished the 15 fathom spot and the 240 to the north.

Brad Harden, Mike Ledaux, Don Riggs, Rick Sherry, Jeff Evans and Ron Anderson, all from Long Beach, Calif., fished Saturday on the Rommy and the Pelicano with Captains Hector and Miguel at the 15 for limits of lingcod and rockcod. The largest ling was 15 pounds. The same group was heading south to Socorro on Sunday morning to try fishing for the white seabass.

San Quintin air temperatures are in the low 40's in the evenings and mornings, low 70's during the day. Anglers should start bringing warmer clothing for the trip out in the morning.

Fishing reports by Pedro's Pangas also appear in Western Outdoor News.
