San Quintin, Mexico:
Only A Few Sportfishing Charter Boats Going Out This Week

Dec. 3, 2005, Kelly Catian, K&M Offshore Sportfishing, San Quintin, Baja California, Mexico:

This fishing week at San Quintin wasn't so hot, as cooler air moved in from the east. Mornings are starting to get cold on the bay at San Quintin, but the beaches seem to be quite a bit warmer.

There wasn't much in the way of sportfishing charters going out of San Quintin as far as I know, but the commercial rockcod guys are killing it with lots of huge reds and even some cowcod.

The white seabass are still around but as the water gets colder they'll move south. For now the beaches south of San Quintin bay are corked with prime bait, sardines, mackerel, etc.

We did an overnight fishing trip last week and talked to a lot of the bait boats out of Ensenada and they were metering lots of bait schools with bigger marks all over the place but they were looking for bigger sardines for the canneries.

Anyway the croaker are still around down south of San Quintin. The reefs have been off and on with yellows showing at the cleaner spots but no big numbers. Calico and sandbass are thick down south as well as some mid-size rockfish.

Surfing at San Quintin on Wednesday was supposed to be good. Me and the kids went out to a reef on the west side of Cabo San Quintin called "Lupe's" that when big is a classic wave. It wasn't classic surfing, but it was breaking, although a little too close to the volcanic ledge-like shoreline. I had to try out my new board so I was voted crash-test dummy to see if it was makable as the kids sat in the car and ate all the !"·%$&/)¿·# peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! I got the only good waves that day, but went hungry for it.

Socorro's been crappy fishing for the most part, but everyone keeps telling me I should have been here yesterday.
