They say that a thunderbolt doesn't hit twice in the same fishing spot, but for some fishermen at Don Eddie's Landing, it did.
Back on September 14th, Jeff Riolo and Roberta Ganz fished for 7 white sea bass during the Don Eddie's Labor Day Tournament.
Fishing again this week, they had a repeat performance the 29th of September out of Don Eddie's Landing, catching 8 White Sea bass up to 40 pounds at the same El Socorro fishing spot south of San Quintin, where the water was very clear and no swells were present.
They fished with San Quintin sportfishing Captain Jaime Garcia and with Fernando Garcia accompanying them on the boat La Pinta.
San Quintin vacation area air temperatures have been ranging in the mid 80s with water temperatures ranging from 68 to 70 degrees, with winds from the northwest from 2 to 3 knots.
Don Eddie's hotel was completely full this week and all the sportfishing boats were chartered for the weekend. We are finding other pangas for other groups of fisherman.
As of Saturday afternoon on the 30th of September, not all our fishing boats are in, but those that have arrived at San Quintin have had very good catches of rockcods, lingcods, sandbass, calico bass, an enormous amount of bonitas and barracudas, and a couple of sheephead or viejas. They have also reported that they have caught three white sea bass at this time.
Don Eddie thinks that he and his fellow anglers have been blessed with so many catches of White Sea bass this year.
