Baja Bytes – November 29, 2022 Baja California Sport Fishing Bull RingSquid watch! If you can find a squid bed, the odds of catching yellowtail, seabass and halibut go way up! In general, surface fishing is sketchy. There are still a few 3-pound class bonito around, but they are very hit-and-miss – mostly miss.Rockfish areContinue reading “Snook and Wahoo Show”
Snook and White Sea Bass at Lopez Mateos plus wahoo outside!
Striped Marlin, Wahoo and dorado at Los Cabos is just the beginning of the fishy Thanksgiving we expect…
The week started out calm, with three nice days, before the wind from the north blew Thursday through Saturday. Until the wind slowed the bite, great action for wahoo was reported on the grounds to the north of Punta Gorda, as wahoo were hitting on trolled Rapalas and various bait. Most fish averaged 25 to 35-pounds, though one wahoo weighed over 60 pounds. Some morning charters landed as many as four wahoo.

There was encouraging news that the yellowfin tuna were biting better the last few days – drift-fishing with strips of squid on the Iman Bank was the most successful. We also saw tuna ranging from 10 to 90-pounds, with an average of 20 to 50-pounds. A couple of charters caught up to 5 fish each, though overall numbers were not high; you had to be patient and be at the right spot when the bite was on. Again, the best action was found early in the morning.
Anglers saw great action for dorado. Limits were common, with many releases scattered throughout the region. However, small to medium-sized fish were being found closer to shore, and some larger specimens were on the offshore grounds where there were marlin and sailfish. These fish were readily caught with lures and various bait.
Bait supplies consisted of ballyhoo, mullet, slabs of squid, and the sardina also rebounded recently, schooling close to shore near the marina jetties.
Good Fishing…Eric Brictson, Gordo Banks Pangas
Remember this kid!? After landing his first dorado for his birthday at 4 years old, for his recent 6th birthday, he landed this 47-Pound Bull! This is a day Mischa (and mom) will never forget! So get out there and TAKE YOUR KIDS FISHING (oh yeah, dogs are welcome, too)!
Mike Mizell, San Antonio, Texas, aboard the “YAHOO” landed a 52.5-pound dorado prior to the arrival of all the rain caused by Tropical Storm Javier offshore.
