Anglers Angel De Guzman and Roy De Cauwer read our winter fishing special in San Jose, Calif., and came to go fishing at San Quintin.
They decided that they wanted to try at this late date in the fishing season for the white seabass and see what kind of luck they would have.
They called Don Eddie's Landing for our winter special and asked us what were their chances in catching at least one white seabass.
We told them that it was kind of late in the season but if any white seabass were around they had a very good chance in catching them, because we have some of the finest sportfishing captains in San Quintin and we consider also that we have some of the finest cruisers in the bay.
So they left San Quintin bay early in the morning and headed to south to fish at El Tranquilo on our Skipjack cruiser Panchita with Capt. Pancho Berrellesa. At El Tranquilo, they found themselves in crystal clear waters with no waves, and the water temperatures ranged from 59 to 62 degrees.
San Quintin fishing weather was in the top 70s and low 80s, with small patches of fog up to 10 a.m., and then the visibility was clear for the rest of the day.
Our friends started fishing with Capt. Pancho, using live bait and they caught one white seabass. Then they changed to number 7 chrome Krocodiles and they caught a couple of 40 pounders and a 61 pounder.
The white seabass are still around San Quintin. All you need is a good captain and a good boat.
Other San Quintin fishing boats that went out of Don Eddie's Landing to the 210 spot also had very good catches of rockcods, lingcods, and sheepheads, easily surpassing their limits.
Some boats are going out tomorrow to El Tranquilo because the news has spread fast.
