I was fishing the Mulege yellowtail tournament yesterday, which we won, 30,000 pesos, so I'm feeling good right now. We just found out a few minutes ago.
Through Thursday, the fishing water temperature around Santa Rosalia in the high 70s continued to produce excellent fishing for billfish, dorado, and some tuna for those with mucho pesos for gas to burn.
Chuck Keller, fishing out of San Lucas Cove in a 16 foot tin boat, hooked three marlin, got one to the boat for a successful release, and also caught 13 nice dorado.
Inshore fishing was excellent, with lots of bonito, cabrilla to 5 pounds, small yellowtail to 8 pounds, and jack crevalle to 30 pounds, caught by trolling and casting along the cliffs north of the Haystack.
The sierra and corvina are still here too.
Winds came up Thursday evening in the Santa Rosalia area, but wind and 6 foot seas did not keep the Mulege Yellowtail Tournament boaters from fishing the reef north of Isla San Marcos on Friday and Saturday.
Deep Dave Hughes, fishing with Alan Lewis, bartender and chief bottle washer at the Voodoo Lounge, won the 30,000 peso first prize despite battery problems and only 4 live baits. Dave's two fish totaled 66.85 pounds.
