Santa Rosalia, Mexico:
Lots Of Yellowtail And Dorado Caught During Fishing Around Isla San Marcos

June 10, 2006, Mike Kanzler, Isla San Marcos, Santa Rosalia, Baja California Sur, Mexico:

I had a long hot week with fishing everyday, and I'll have to make this week's report short. I'm too beat.

Santa Rosalia weather was hot, in the 70s for the mornings and 90s for the day, but strangely was quite comfortable due to low humidity. We had light breezes in the late afternoon to 8 knots. Water temperatures were in the 77 to 80 degree range with good visibility of 50-plus feet and blue water color.

This week I had nonstop fishing action.

Had the Sowers brothers from Orange County, Dave, Shane and Jimmy, out for 4 fishing days. The yellowtail bite was very good, with a total of 13 yellowtail in the 28 to 35 pound range.

Truly, the 110 bajo yellowtail brutes were out and around, with as many lost as caught.

We also had good runs offshore, and fishing as close as 2 miles off Isla San Marcos produced dorado limits to finish off the day. We saw lots of weed paddies with some fish close to 20 pounds, but many small fish too.

I also fished one day with the father and son team of Dave Addcock and Matt Addcock. The bite was a little slower, making it hard going for these first timer Baja anglers. However they did get a lesson on how strong yellowtail here are! All was not lost, as they did catch their first yellowtail and a very nice 45 pound almaco jack, not to mention their first dorado too. They told me afterwards that it was the best fishing trip they've been on.

I need to nap right now.
