For the past week, here in the San Lucas Cove-Santa Rosalia area, inshore fishing continues to be excellent. There are a half-dozen or more small tin boats (and one Porta-Boat!) at San Lucas Cove right now, and all are coming in with good catches of cabrilla (leopard grouper to some), some good-sized corvina, small yellowtail, some nice 3 to 7-pound pargo, sierra, 2 to 5-pound Mexican bonito, and the ever-present spotted bay bass.
Water at 77-degrees continues to produce 5 to 12-pound dorado while trolling just outside the "haystack" and in the channel.
Fishing conditions off the north end of Isla San Marcos have been windy all week, and the few San Lucas Cove boats that have gone there produced just a couple of big yellowtail, a few nice cabrilla, and a number of big goldspotted bass.
The wind eased up and the seas laid down this afternoon, Saturday, and a number of San Lucas Cove boats, including myself, will be out tomorrow looking for a change of luck.
Bait is plentiful just outside the cove in 30 feet of water. That's about it for sunny San Lucas Cove.
