I made it back to Santa Rosalia from having my motor fixed in San Diego. The motor took too long to fix and I had to buy another one just so I could return home. On the bright side, when the other motor gets fixed I'll put it on the old boat and then have a backup
Santa Rosalia fishing weather right now is hot and muggy, 85-90 degrees, with light afternoon breezes from the south. Water temperatures are at 81-83 degrees with poor visibility of only 15-20 feet. The water has that warm dirty green look.
I did fish today, my first in quite awhile. However, it looks like I haven't missed much. I did find good bait by going all the way to the Santa Rosalia marina and using the bait light to load up.
Once on the bajos, I tried every spot twice over only to not even get so much as a bump. Not the way I wanted to start my first fishing day back on the water. But it was just great to be back on it, and remembering always that it's not all about the fishing. It's about the way of life and the beauty of the sea.
Next week my good buddy Danny works nights, so this means a few fishing runs are in order.
