The folks that are fishing are primarily targeting Pargo and Cabrilla. Inshore there are plenty of Sierra up to 6 pounds. Trolling small rápalas in approximately 25’ of water are filling the coolers. These toothy critters are a blast on light tackle and great eating.
A few Dorado are sticking around in the bay and around the island. Small lures or slow trolling live bait will entice a bite. A few wahoo are getting tagged but this isn’t consistent anymore and I’ll say it again, the Tuna were a no show. My guess is after the holidays we will start looking around for yellowtail. Looking at the water conditions one might expect an early year for those home guard moss backs. We’ll see.
Our Mag Bay liveaboard season is now finished and all the boats are on their way back. The season for this adventure was incredible. Epic wahoo some tuna and some of the largest grouper I’ve seen in decades. The stripe Marlin bait ball experience wasn’t as crazy as years past. Not sure why. Soon the sardine migration will start to head north up the Sea of Cortez bringing these guys with them.
